A busy restaurant with a wide choice of meals and drinks including daily specials. The bar is typical USA with several TVs. Food can be variable in quality but there is plenty of it. Breakfast is plentiful but not very appetising but a self service buffet means you can make you own selections.

Husband and I shared the rainbow trout entree. It was ok, nothing special. Servers were very friendly. There is a souvenir store attached to the restaurant

We have eaten here before and will not again. The reason..my husband loves their prime rib and no matter when you go they are out. Last trip they were out and said only serving on Saturday. This trip we arranged to be there on Sat. and got there approx. 7 pm and waited to be seated 15 minutes. When we... More

I had the Salmon which was cooked just right and nicely seasoned. The salad was good with tomatoes and cukes and different greens. Bread was good ---the waitress was very accommodating bringing out olive oil for my bread because I am lactose intolerant and cannot do butter. The weak point of the meal was the vegetable--green beans cooked in butter... More

We arrived in town rather late so we took the recommendation of the hotel clerk. The food, service and ambience was adequate but no anything to write home about. We ate at cowboy's the next night and that was excellent.

The Yellowstone Mine was busy but our projected 20 minute wait was only 10 minutes. The wine list included enough by-the-glass choices, all between $6 and $9. My salad was large with plenty of tomatoes, cucumber and big chunks of Blue Cheese. The baked potatoes were tasty and warm enough to melt the butter & sour cream. My half-rack of... More

Oh my word, this place was terrible. I don't know why they get so much traffic, but don't let it fool you. My sister and I tried the salmon, and it was extremely overcooked. I choked down half of it and got sick later on. The rice was tough with no flavor, and the vegetables--I swear they might be a... More

Limited selection in town. Free breakfast included with Best Western - same owner. Wait staff - fast and efficient at cleaning tables.

Nobody goes to Gardiner for the food, and by Gardiner standards this is a good place for dinner - we went there twice. On the first night I had the rainbow trout almondine - a big piece of fish with a decent baked potato. The veggie that night was canned baby corn - not so much. But I chose the... More

Went here because breakfast was included with the Best Western stay. A new server of potatoes was ice cold! How do you do that? Ran out of plates. When they came, here was a big smear of ketchup on the top of a plate. Pancakes appeared hot but would not even melt the butter when placed on a cold plate.... More
