Great setting outdoors with an awesome overlook view. Steaks were great with lots of side options to go with it. Large meal. Enjoyed live music also.

Just know you are going for the view and the general experience. The food is mediocre. All the steaks are prepared med-well, which for me ruins steak. The side dishes are ordinary and the beer selection pathetic. But the view really is stunning.

The views from the Pitchfork were wonderful. The steak was done medium as they need to to cater to the general population and had a nice flavor. The brownies were delicious! It was the perfect location to attend the Medora Musical afterward.

No. They do not have a full bar. Beer and wine is available for purchase at a small drinks cart located within the area. They take only cash.
