“Waitress was good, food was average”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

Driving by what caught my GF's attention was the signs that said "hearty soups and salad bar". After a week in Yellowstone area and eating out all the time, we were looking for something homey.

The staff was friendly and our waitress took good care of us. We both started with a trip to the soup and salad bar which did have a homemade hearty beef noodle soup. The salad bar also had ample selections that met with our likes.

My GF ordered the Alfredo on penne with chicken. The portion was ample and came with a big slice of garlic bread. She felt that it had basic flavour and was ok.

I had the baked chicken, which seemed to be a signature dish. The chicken it self was good, but the side of carrots tasted like it had been steamed for hours and was mushy and tasteless. Overall it was an average meal.

The waitress was the highlight as she carried out her job we'll.

“Excellent catering by Outpost Restaurant!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Flew in to West Yellowstone Airport on 08/07/2014 and ordered 2 pilot crew meals. Catering was provided by this restaurant. The 2 trout dinners were among the best meals I've had in 15 years as a professional pilot. Outstanding quality, generous portions and beautifully presented and cooked. Packaging for transport was also very good. I cannot address the restaurant atmosphere, but the quality of the food they prepared was superb! Michelle Marceau, Captain, Citation Excel

“Open Faced Turkey Sandwich”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

We had heard that the Outpost had a really good open faced turkey sandwich, so we went there for dinner. They are a little pricey, but that is normal for an area that relies on the tourist trade. The place is in a great location and very clean. The service was good too. But the dinner was a little off. The potatoes were real, but so full of garlic that they actually burned on your tongue. The turkey and the gravy was sprinkled heavily with sage (like you would parsley). It's all you could taste. We couldn't finish it - it was just too strong of tastes. I don't think this ruins the restaurant, but I'm hoping the owners read this review and do some tweaking.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Ate here late after visiting yellowstone. I had the trout it was pretty good. My mom and daughter had broccoli cheese soup and loved it. They don't have that soup everyday though. We finished off with apple pie that was scrumptious!!
