I had a New York strip and it wasn’t as good as they say. Absolutely no booze. Should have stopped elsewhere.

We have eaten every year that we have come to Yellowstone! The New York steak with the pomegranate reduction sauce is incredible! The creamed spinach is such a special culinary delight! The mashed potatoes are perfect. They also have great desserts!
