Food was very average, always arrived cold, salad bar is dissapointing too, servings are huge. Service is very SLOW, wait staff seem overwhelmed experience was OK.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

The food was decent, The service was good. Quick service early in the morning before bus tours. This was very important to us since one tour left at 6:30 am. I didn't expect five star gourmet food but the meals were tasty. Restaurant located very close to the Three Bear Lodge.

“No Bears! Just great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Three bears has been around forever(almost). Breakfast menu is full of filling options. One pancake is enough for two. So good we ate there 3 mornings in a row.
Karen is a hoot. Funny, good at her job, and poised to please.
Family friendly, historical, reasonable prices and right downtown.
The place to eat in West Yellowstone.

“Average food, average service, average price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We ate here once during our 3 night stay in West Yellowstone. It was just okay. Hubbie had steak, I had trout. The steak was 12oz, but pretty poor quality - thin with lots of gristle and fat. The trout was fine, if a bit bland. Side servings were blah fries and lumpy mash.

The service was as average as the food - not rude, but nothing more than the minimum required level of politeness and assistance.

It met our needs in that we got fed and watered, paid and left within an hour. But nothing more.

The restaurant was very busy - seems to be popular with families and seniors.
