The food was average, but with good flavor. I ate here with my wife and another couple while visiting YNP. The guys had the sirloin steak special, $16.95, a fair size portion cooked as ordered but a bit on the tough side. One of the ladies had a pasta dish, good sized portion, with good flavor. The other lady had... More

Enjoyed a good meal in the pub-like setting. An added bonus-a small casino! I would have enjoyed stopping by after dinner, but they closed at 10.

While staying at this Holiday Inn we had breakfast twice in the Branch. It’s funny but we had different experiences both days. First we ordered off the menu both times, no buffet. One day service was great (thanks Breanna), the other day it was very pokey. One day with the mini waffles we received fruit, the next day we did... More

This restaurant is attached to the Holiday Inn where we staying. We had breakfast there on the last day of our stay because we wanted an early start. They featured a breakfast buffet which was ideal for us. All the food was about room temperature: pancakes, eggs, sausage. The coffee was weak. My husband complained about the food temperature and...

My wife and I were looking for a place to have a pleasant and good meal after a busy day of fly fishing> we have stayed, and eaten out, in West Yellowstone in the past. Yet we had not tried The Branch. Not only was the food done to our liking, but the service provided by Leah our waitperson was... More

Nice variety of food. So yummy the first night, had dinner there again the second. Being vegetarian, I was very pleased at how easy they made it for me to modify a dish to suit my needs. And it turned out delicious!

The bar was great for happy hour and late dinners. The wait staff was very attentive and the drinks were mixed perfectly. The restaurant had a wonderful breakfast buffet to fill us up before spending the day in the park. Compared to other restaurants and bars, this one was a good value and not priced above the others.
