Get the bison chili. Corn bread is awesome. DON'T get the bison meatloaf, no flavor. Bison burgers are great too.

We spent 3 nights at Yellowstone Under Canvas as part of our family vacation, and the Bar N (on-property restaurant) was a great way to start with breakfast and end with dinner each day. Excellent steaks, fish, wine list and cocktails -- all in the middle of working ranch land about 15min from Yellowstone. Twice we had Missy as our... More

I'd almost decide to head back out west just to come here again! Finding it is an adventure, which adds to the fun. The food and service was incredible! Get reservations!

Bar N Ranch Restaurant was recommended by the place we where staying at. We were told it's where the locals go. It's hard to find but well worth it. Good food but a bit pricey. Service was good and staff was friendly. Try the Bison meatloaf.

This is probably the nicest setting for dinner during our stay in yellowstone,. That's where it ends though, we all had a decent meal ( a little spendy for the quality) and may have enjoyed it more if it weren't for the lound ( & relatively obnoxious) server (Allison?). In my opinion the food and service do not match the... More

We were staying at the Bar N Ranch and walked over for dinner our first night. What a find! The chef certainly knows what he is doing. The food was wonderful and our server (Jamie) was terrific. We had selected our entrees from the menu before Jamie described the night's specials. We quickly changed our minds - I had the... More

Drive 5 easy miles from West Yellowstone for a great western meal with equal views. We had stroganoff with soup, salad and a nice bottle of wine, all expertly served by Missy, friendly and knowledgeable, then strolled outside to see the Big sky sunset.

Our family enjoyed this restaurant while we stayed next door at Yellowstone under Canvas. My husband and I shared the chicken-they do charge a $10/split plate cost, but they add a soup/salad to each person, and they add veggies/starch to each plate. The kid's meals are not cheap-$12/child but my kids devoured the pasta and mac/cheese. The huckleberry lemonade and... More

Rib eye steak was excellent, with excellent seasoning. The filet mignon was not as tender as the rib eye, but excellent flavor. Vegetarian entree with grilled vegetables in a notable light pastry pocket was very delicious. Side dishes were well presented and good. Dessert was Italian-style tiriamasu - excellent after a full meal. The fruit was notably fresh and flavorful.... More

This place is beautiful inside. Great choice of dishes and nice selection of local beer. We stayed in "Yellowstone under Canvas" and the restaurant is in a walking distance. Good value for money. Serves breakfast until 10 and opens again at 5pm for dinner. No TV! - just a great way to spend time with your family...
