Description: Westward expansion brought rail travel and ranches to the Continental Divide, where cowboys (and today’s national park visitors) could live the dream of a horizon-free lifestyle. Inspired by the natural beauty of Yellowstone, the Branch Restaurant celebrates “Open Range Cuisine” where beef and game dishes are infused with local flavor and enjoyed with a selection of regional microbrews and hand-crafted premium cocktails. A selection of tasty vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.The restaurant boasts casual attire, seats on a first-come-first-served basis and does not accept reservations. Children's menus and box lunches are available. The Branch Restaurant & Bar is the ideal locale to enjoy a delicious dinner while recounting the day's exploration of Yellowstone National Park.Open daily, year-round.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I ordered pasta and it was very tasty but was a little bit of everything talking about quantity, you know... For appetizer they served their own fries (like in flakes) on a metalic bucket and it was very tasty and nice...The beer was good. I think I had an IPA from the local brewey. They have like a train-museum in which you can go inside and take a look you know... The decor is like centuries ago or from the wild west or something. Anyway, I do recommend to go and have a nice meal... if you don't like to eat much, of course.

“Great lunch!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

The chicken melt and the wrap were delicious, the onion rings are the BEST! One of the few places open in the middle of the day during winter, but I would come back anyway.

“Great supper”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We ate in the bar on Christmas Eve (restaurant part was not open during our stay) and had a great experience. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. Our food came quickly and was delicious; the Buffalo pot roast was fabulous. Great happy hour prices!

Had breakfast and tried everything from eggs to waffles and it was very good. Our server was very nice to, but I am unable to remember his name. Tall, handsome black man.

“Imodium”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Food was pricey, staff was mediocre, food quality was below average. Had the dining room closed and made everybody sit in the noisy bar. Not a pleasant dining experience.
