We took advice from Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Excellent steaks cooked ourselves with choice of a big green salad or potato salad and bread. Mushrooms are also available to saute. Beer, wine and soft drinks available. For good steaks and a different experience, give it a try.

Although it was more than an hour from our cabin in Yellowstone, our three kids demanded that we return to Eino's. No resistance on my part. Local color, good views, great value and best of all cook your own steak. Love this place!!!

This is a local favorite, especially among the snowmobilers. You cook your own food, right down to the sides. It is very quaint and the food was good, my compliments to the chef, LOL! Try the porterhouse if your brave.

What a fun way to relax after a day of sightseeing in the Yellowstone National Park area. Park rangers told me about this place, and encouraged me to try it out to experience genuine 'local color' coupled with good food. I was not to be disappointed. Easily missed, Eino's sits alongside the road a few miles outside of West Yellowstone, Montana with its name painted on the inside of a satellite dish. Don't expect 5-star service, but DO expect 5-star panoramic views. This is a place where you pick out your own meat (I recommend the 24-oz porterhouse that you can share with someone) and cook it yourself in their kitchen. A full array of seasonings and sauces awaits your personal touch. You also get a generous slice of french bread that you can butter and grill right beside your steak, if you so desire. Want 'shrooms? You can saute' mushrooms in a skillet and add wine to them, if you've ordered a glass from the bar. While waiting for your steak to get done, Eino's serves up a hearty salad and bowls of delicious potatoe salad.

While grilling your steak, enjoy getting to know your 'chef mates' who are grilling right beside you. We met some people who have been coming to Eino's for over 10 years. Share stories, make new friends, and create memories that will last you a lifetime. Before you leave, take a dollar bill out of your pocket, ask for a marker from one of the servers, and write the names of your party on old George. Your server will nail it on the wall for you to find the next time you go back to Eino's. Trust me, you'll be back. If you leave this place hungry, you have only yourself to blame.

Eino's is a great, little, out-of-the-way place to relax after a busy day. About 10 minutes north of the heart of West Yellowstone, this small bar/restaurant can be found by looking for the neon "Eino's" on the front of a satellite dish. Once inside, step up to the bar and order your meal. They'll give you a plate with all of the meat you have ordered and send you into the back room to put it on the grill. They a couple of grills along with plenty of seasoning and anything else you'll need to cook it the way you like it. Then you toss your meat onto the grill and let it cook. This is a great time to swap stories with the other people tending to their food. While we were there, we met a group of guys who had been coming to the area to fish for 19 years. Our steaks were very good. (Although I took mine off the grill too soon and had to put it back on there for a second go-round.) There are some nice views from the balcony at the back of Eino's and the men's bathroom has an amusing treat inside. Next time we're in the area, we'll be heading back to Eino's.
