Prior to our visit to YNP, we stayed in Gardiner and has dinner at the Iron Horse. The food selection and quality were very good. The service was excellent and the prices weren't bad.

We popped in here for lunch after a guided wildlife tour and sat outside which is great right by the Yellowstone river. Being veggie I went for the veggie burger and it was really nice! I was pleasantly surprised as usually veggie burgers aren't all that great but this was yummy! Friendly staff, good beer and good food.

Pretty good food but pricey. The service was great and the food tasty, to be honest. Locals like it.

We were in search of elk and bison burgers and since there are several restaurants with similar menus, we asked a local kayak guide for a recommendation …. His first choice was The Lighthouse and his second was the Iron Horse Grill. The Lighthouse is a few miles outside of town and since we were on foot, we opted for... More

After a day hiking in Yellowstone, we stayed in Gardiner, MT. The hotel staff suggested the Iron Horse. Gardiner is a very, very small town, so not too many restaurants. The deck outside sits out over the Yellowstone River, and it's beautiful. The food, however, is just average bar food. The inside is not air conditioned, so it was quiet... More

Great location to while away a couple of hours for lunch overlooking the river and enjoying some good food. Team were all very friendly and welcoming with service to match. Food was very good with the Coconut Shrimp being the stand-out item. Do not be put off by the Iron Horse's 'road house bar' looks, it is a friendly, spacious... More

With a location right on the river, local decorations throughout the bar and deer in the parking lot upon arrival, we were excited about this restaurant. Our food was okay - bison steak burnt on the outside and rare/raw on the inside, a 'not bad' elk burger. Would go back to sit on the deck and have a drink but... More

The chef here is superb. We have tried other places in Gardiner, but this one beats them all. I had my birthday party here last May, sixteen of us, and the guys were so great. All the food came out at the same time, hot , with smiles. We have been back this fall, and I can reccomend the dry... More
