The owner Matt was a wonderful host and took the time to talk with us and give us some tips on where to see some hidden gems of Wyoming history. The people who work there are just as nice as he is too! The food...was amazing (the kettle chips were to die for)! Choice of steak, chicken, or trout cooked using a pitchfork along with salads, buffalo brats, baked potato and dessert at an extremely reasonable price. They supply tea, lemonade, and water but it is BYOB and they will supply buckets, ice, cups, etc. The views of the Wind River Mountain range made the experience complete. We highly recommend this one of a kind experience!More

Pitchfork was a big deciding factor on us staying in Pinedale so there were definitely some expectations on the place. It’s a very cool and laid back atmosphere, with First class food. The Steaks were perfectly cooked, and all of the other acutriments were fantastic....Matt and his staff do a great job of making sure everyone is taken care of, and the food is awesome. Highly recommend it!More

The food was great, the experience was unique (pitchfork cooking!), the owner was very friendly and the staff worked really hard. Can't recommend highly enough.

After a long day of hiking in the Tetons and along the road to Casper we decided to stop here. Expectations were reasonably high as I’d discovered the establishment in a best of Wyoming food list, but exactly what was coming nearly blew my friend...and I’s head clean off. The food was beyond stellar. It is exactly the kind of hearty food that is meant to be eaten in the shadow of a majestic mountain range. We still cannot determine which was better, the food or the view. Either way it is an extraordinary experience and worth going out of your way for!More

We loved this place - great food, wonderful outdoor location, very friendly staff; the owner in particular took time to explain this unique experience and get to know us better. And perfectly prepared and suited for this special Coronavirus summer. Certainly a place we would...come back to should we come in this region again!More

I love the location, I love the staff, and I love the food. The location is beautiful and I love seeing the Wind River Mountains. The owner made the experience personal and he took time to really get to know us. The food was delicious....It is a little expensive but it is worth every penny. I just wish it was closer to where I live. The servers were all very nice and did a great job. I loved eating here and I will come back. It is the best dining experience I have ever had. Worth the drive from Jackson.More

What a fun evening with great food and an even better environment. There are lawn games for the kids and big family style tables outside and under awnings. The food is great and a fun experience - you first grab freshly made chips with different...sauces, as well as fruit, salad and bread. The bison brats were tasty and the steak was perfect. Highly recommend coming with friends and hanging out through sunset for a nice night. BYOB.More

A really different way to cook food. They actually cook your food in fondue oil. Very tasty. It is outdoor dining so you have to be prepared wind, weather and bugs. We enjoyed or dinner, but this is not fine dining.

Pitchfork Fondue was such a unique experience. Dinner was great and the view is beautiful. The owners were incredibly kind and made sure we had everything we needed. Steaks are cooked to order and the available sauces are a nice addition to the meal. Do...not leave this place without devouring your fair share of kettle chips! Yum!More

Matt David was supposed to be helping us plan our wedding along with catering it. We met him in October, and it took him forever to respond to emails, and get in contact with us. We gave the benefit of the doubt of holidays and...such but we could never get on the same page. I told him what we would pay him to handle certain things for the wedding and he put that money into terms that we thought sounded great. From the get go he said he was all about keeping the "5 star rating" for his company which I understand, I mean who wouldn't want that for their company? But here is the thing, when you say that you're going to help plan someone's big day, take forever to respond and can't ever get on the same page as them there is an issue. Then when you call the bride (Me) and tell her that this needs to get "locked down, because you have other options that you don't want to turn down" you have to assume the bride is going to be pissed. I thought we had it locked down and I was waiting on food options, and a CONTRACT. If Matt honestly thought that he was going to get 5,000 dollars without a contract that is absolutely insane to me. Then tell's me that him and my venue are a "packaged deal" and that he has other people he is going to go with. I would consider that, not only rude but insanely un-professional. It's a real shame that I didn't get to try his food but on the other hand it's almost a blessing in disguise. Now to find out that he was showing two of us the same venue and waiting to see who would pay the most, now that was just the icing on top of the cake!More

After 4 months of going back and forth planning for him to cater a wedding reception and asking repeatedly to put something on paper and asking what was needed for a deposit he called to say that he had other people interested and would be...withdrawing from helping. We live out of town and made every effort possible to get on the same page with very little response from him. $250 has already been spent on invitations that have already gone out and now there is only 6 months until the wedding to find a new venue and figure out catering.More

This is an interesting dinner option and we enjoyed our visit. Tips for others - bring your own alcohol if you want a beer or wine with dinner. They do not have a liquor license. This is all you can eat for the price. The...chicken was awesome and the steak was a little tough but still good. You eat outside on picnic tables so bring a jacket as it might get cold.More

This place is only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday for dinner during the Summer and it is outdoors so you need to choose a time with good weather. If the conditions are right though, this is someplace you at least need to try once.

Eat here like nowhere else. We did enjoy the meal and the outdoor eating experience. The food is interesting, the meat is cooked in oil with a big fork. The fresh potato chips are delicious. Will come back if have chance.
