Enjoyed our visit. All the food was very good and the beer was good as well. We ordered off The Pub menu the Korean tacos were exceptionally good.

I was passing through and found Cowfish and had a delightful dinner consisting of Cucumber cilantro margarita and the Mahi sandwich. The service was excellent and the Mahi sandwich was moist, fresh, and topped with lettuce and cilantro sauce. The Margarita was also delicious. I give Cowfish an excellent rating.

A town the size of Lander is indeed fortunate to have Cowfish as a dining choice. The food is consistently good, the service varies a bit, but is almost always good. The menu is varied and changes periodically. Cowfish has never really gotten the delivery of cocktails figured out - always slow and a second cocktail in a timely fashion... More

A little pricey but really good food. We called ahead since we had 11 in our group. They had a table ready when we got there. We came back to the Cowfish after a tour a few years ago. The quality is still very good.

The service was acceptable, our waitress was pleasant, the menu had a nice selection, the food was a bit over priced. But for all this and what could be a very nice place. Does not make up for food poisoning. Within an hour of eating a salad and the beef tip pasta the bad food attacked. Its too bad for... More

In Wyoming you will find a plethora of hamburger or steak joints, but this little restaurant offers an unusual array of fine dining choices. From the great fish tacos to the steak tip strogonoff, I highly recommend it. It comes with a modern atmosphere and a gorgeous, original tin ceiling. Wait staff is prompt and curteous and there are no... More

I'm from the NW, and like to think I know something about seafood. We have never had better fish tacos and fish & Chips than at the Cowfish in landlocked, far from either coast, Lander, WY. The wife and I spend the night in Lander on the way to Denver by way of Yellowstone in June. The restaurant was one... More

We have eaten here before but this time it was just hubby and me. We were seated in the bar snd it was a nice change. I had the best cocktail. I think it was called a Spring Pear. I need to figure out how to make it myself. It was so good that I had 2.

We sat on the patio and really enjoyed a Oaxacan chicken salad and very meaty pork shanks in a mole sauce. The beer was local and good and the service was excellent. The best food on our western road trip!

Located inside a historic and beautifully restored 100 year old brick building, Cowfish offers a fun and lively atmosphere paired with excellent food and knowledgeable service. Our menu features hand cut steaks, local grass fed burgers, fresh fish and our innovative pastas and salads. All our beers are brewed on site by the Lander Brewing Co. Its popular lineup of refreshing, made from scratch microbrews includes beers that have won awards at the Great American Beer festival, the World Beer Cup and other competitions. Enjoy a romantic dinner in our candlelit dining room or a more casual dining experience in our pub. In the summer, we offer the added attraction of dining on our outdoor patio under a trellis of wild Cascade hops.
