“Fantastic food after days of hiking”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We tended to end up starving after full days of exploring Yellowstone, so it's very telling that we ate here three nights out of four!

Turning up around 8, we had to wait a little to be seated (around 20 minutes). We got round this the second (and third) times by putting our names down for the following night's list.

Over the course of 3 nights, we tried plenty, from the traditional (lobster bisque, burgers, meatloaf) to more unique items like the farmhouse trout and the curried lamb rack. Everything was fantastic. The range of food on offer was superb, and there was plenty of great tasting local produce (elk, bison, etc.). A few really nice beers on tap, together with plenty of local craft beers and a wide selection of wines. The deserts are also something of a showpiece, and we loved the huckleberry bread pudding.

It tended to average around $25-30 each for the food per night, which really was excellent value. By this point of the trip, we'd had our fill of basic grill food, and the refined and varied food of the Madison Crossing was the perfect counterbalance!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We ate here twice during our stay in W. Yellowstone, once at the table and once at the bar.
In both cases the food was great and perfectly cooked and the service was fantastic.

“Friendly and inviting”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We were hungry and welcomed into this restaurant. As others have said, the menu isn't extensive, but there is some variety and our meals were good.

“Great bar, great service, great food.”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Popped in here a couple of nights running whilst staying in West Yellowstone. Initially I was slightly put off going by its location inside a small mall for want of a better word but its a lovely little place. I sat at the bar both nights and I have to say that their barman Sean was one of the best bartenders I have ever met. A truly engaging, interesting and polite individual who made everyone feel welcome. I did sample the macaroni and cheese and the crabcakes whilst I was there and they were very good indeed. In fact during the shutdown whilst I was there it was by far the busiest of all the restaurants and bars in the town. Once you have been there its easy to see why.

“What a pleasure!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We went in just looking for a hot drink to relieve the chill. The bartender was friendly and created really fine hot toddies. We looked at the menu, were intrigued by the special, so we stayed to eat.

The three game lasagna was outstanding. Rich, flavorful, tender noodles, superb sauce.

After, the chef came to the table to ask if we were satisfied with the meal.

We were.
