a very nice restaurant, jammed with people having a very good time, we had the spicy pasta excellent, and the bison burger great flavor, and for dessert had scoops of huckleberry ice cream yum.

After a full day of touring Yellowstone National Park, Madison Crossing Lounge was a delicious choice for dinner. The burger selection is great and the entrees are full of great choices. We sampled the Bison burger and the angus burger. Both were cooked as requested and were huge burgers! The steak fries were an excellent side dish. For dessert, we... More

It's popular and they don't do reservations so arrive around six or after 7:30. The host though keeps good track of who wants to wait for a table. If you have to wait you can browse the nearby curio shop or you can always eat at the bar. The wine list is long and the food is well prepared and... More

The atmosphere and food at this restaurant is terrific. The level of sophistication compares to metro NY area. Don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table. We waited about 20 minutes, and it was worth the wait. The nacho appetizers are the best, and large enough for at least 4 people. Everything we tried was great, including... More

This restaurant was so good that our party ate there 3 nights during our four days at Yellowstone. The menu is varied for all tastes (wild game, trout, and chicken) and presented in a visually appetizing way. Dessert was a bread pudding that hit the spot! Service was efficient and friendly. I would recommend this to everyone.

The restaurant is part of a mini mall and the only clue that you made a good choice is the constant crowd. True, there aren't many non-fast food places in West Yellowstone but they apparently have earned the support of regulars. They don't take reservations and don't expect to walk in early or late. Get your name in at the... More

It was nice to find a quiet, well run restaurant in West Yellowstone. We were very pleased with our meals. I had the buffalo meatloaf and my husband the flat iron steak and both were great....as was the wine. Our server was prompt and well versed on the menu. Our meals came with perfectly done green beans and potatoes. It... More

After eating at other restaurants that disappointed us or were just burger/pizza joints we finally came across this gem. The service was great - our server recommended the pasta for myself & it was great - thank you! The food was spot on. I wish we would have found this first so we could eat here every night we spent... More

NOT JUST BURGERS: if travelling through Yellowstone and have become tired of the burger option, this is the place for you. We visited twice in our three day stay in West Yellowstone. Very popular and may need to wait for table but worth the wait. They serve delightful warm bread while you wait for your meal. Staff happy to work... More
