We stayed only 3 nights in Wilderness but had 2 consecutive dinner reservations. My best choice was the 3 different kinds of deer, but the 300 gram filet was perfect as well.

We eat at ‘the girls’ on one of our nights staying in Wilderness. The restaurant has moved from its garage location since our last visit in 2017. We enjoyed the atmosphere but thought the food was ok, if not outstanding.
