“Good saloon food and reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

We went here for three dinners and each one was excellent. They serve good pizza, burgers, sandwiches and steaks. Everything we had was really good. The service was good, the juke box a little loud, and the back bar was authentically western. Pool was available in a side room. Locals hang out here--some interesting characters for people watching.

“Come for the Fernet Stay for the Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Great place- Sunday BBQ was fun, pizza good and the best part was they had some trout on the menu as well (which was excellent) The bar is updated in some places but the main center remains the way it should be, a mountain lodge hideaway. They also serve Fernet Branca, and I loved the owner stopping by the table to say hello. Good food, great times. Thank you for being an easy choice for us on the way to Yellowstone and even with a few food snobs in the group it was a win.

“Pizza and deadheads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

Saw the Steal Your Face on the facade of the saloon and the word pizza. It was a no-brainer for us to stop. We had been in Yellowstone NP eating camp food for days and needed a break. Being a deadhead I enjoyed hearing Jerry Garcia play nonstop throughout the meal. The pizza was outstanding and we also ordered a few beers and the potato skins from last nights BBQ dinner. The Potato skins were stellar. I can't say enough good things about our visit to Cooke City and the entrance to the Beartooth Hwy. Service was again outstanding. The bartender/waiter was funny and informative even with a room full of people. Loved The Miners saloon. There is foosball and few casino slots to play too. Will definitely go back if in the area again. This restaurant is just a few miles outside the Northeast gate to Yellowstone NP.

...Nothing better then some Pizza and a few hours of Grateful Dead music to pass an afternoon. I am psyched that you had a good time, even more pleased that the Steal Your Face was one of the reasons you stopped in. I think that because of your visit, and review that we are going to start a "Steal Your Beer" promotion. Anyone that stops in because they saw the logo deserves a beer and a few quarters for the jukebox so they can rock out on their way through!!

Thanks for the review. We owe you a draft next time through!

“Great restaurant/bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

My husband and I were passing through Cooke city on a recent Sunday. We went into the saloon for a drink and inquired about food. Turns out that it was our lucky day! The owner informed us that they have a BBQ on Sundays. We stayed and loved every bite of our meal. It was very good. Rack of ribs, aged brined pork chop, strip steak or Yellowstone trout. They grilled it outside the restaurant and prepared it well. Lots of delicious sides. Baked potato, grilled zucchini, garlic bread. A meal fit for a king! If you are there on a Sunday, do the BBQ. I am sure that their food is good every day of the week! Enjoy and Bon appetite!

“Was expecting better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by for pizza one evening. The service was top notch! However the pizza was so greasy it was very unappetizing. We ordered the White Pizza which others' had reviewed very favorably but we were not impressed. Not sure if it was just a fluke or if others like greasy pizza. We were disappointed since we had read such great reviews of the pizza at MS.

...I apologize if the pizza you had was not up par with the reviews you have read. I don't know what may have happened, or what would have caused this particular pizza to be greasy. I will say that we do use olive oil as the base for the pizza, but that should cook into the crust. The amount is measured as to keep the pie from being to "oily" If we screwed this up again I apologize. The White Pizza is the Cadillac of our specialty pies as the ingredients are top notch, and definitely unique.

. Hopefully you will give us another chance. I think that you will find that we can do much better then the experience you had last week.... We appreciate all feedback, good and bad. We have tried to set the bar high. Thank you for your review.
