I think this is the best place in town to eat. I had the trout and my husband had the chicken schnitzel. For dessert we shared a huckleberry sundae. The best part I think the wonderful bread that they served before the meal was delivered.

This is a very nice bar and restaurant near the center of town. I sat at the bar and had a burger which was very good. The service was efficient and friendly and, over all, it was just a very nice experience. Try a shot of Yippee Ki Yay whiskey for $14.00. It's one of a kind.

After shopping in the Homeroom and enjoying the surroundings within the shopping complex, dessert was all we wanted. The restaurant was very crowded at 8:37 PM, as well as the bar. I ordered take out of Bread pudding , Creme Brulee, and a cup of coffee. The wait time for just 3 items was very long, 35 minutes, but one... More

Bison burger was great and so we're the hand cut fries. A little pricey but worth it. Mushroom soup was delicious but I personally like mine a little thicker

We had an hour wait to be seated, but it was definitely worth it! The restaurant is located in the original school building for West Yellowstone, with a common area for seating and a great store located near by to while away the wait. Small restaurant with minimal seating and a large bar. Variety of items on menu, good service,... More

Not bad. I had the bison nachos minus the bison and the platter was HUGE. My husband had the chicken pasta. Needed salt and maybe some other seasoning. Other tables got bread. He didn't with his entree. Not sure what that was about. Server was good but a little slow. We did have the BLUEBERRY BREAD PUDDING. It was amazing.... More

Busy place. Only 2 of us so the wait was not too bad. Think it would be much worse in peak season. We had the trout, $24. Came with 2 sides. It was cooked just right and very good.

We expected food with great taste and friendly personel after we read the reviews. Unfortunately the risotto wasn't tasteful at all and the steaks were overpriced. The waitress was very pushy to get rid of us as soon as possible. We got the check while we were still eating. Wouldn't go there again.

I can't say enough about this restaurant. The steaks and trout were fabulous. We treated our friends to dinner since it was their 11th wedding anniversary. We couldn't have chosen a better restaurant,/ former schoolhouse to dine in. This restaurant is a must if you stay in West Yellowstone.

This restaurant has received some rave reviews but we found it mediocre and overpriced. We had the bison nachos and the flatiron steak. The wine list was decent. The service was adequate.

Thank Bjrsmom
