“Delightful surprise!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

After spending 2 days in Yellowstone eating National Park Service food, we were looking for something different. On the suggestion of a local business owner, we went to Ernie's for lunch. This busy little place had a wonderful variety of sandwiches that were prepared while you wait. My grilled cheese with veggies was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. If you are looking for variety that isn't run-of-the- mill, Ernie's is your place.

“Clean, busy, quick service and tasty food”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Just a random stop on our drive from MT to CA.
Not much to choose from on a Sunday in that little area. Ernie's was just right.
Simple, good, well prepared breakfast food. They served lunch, soup, salads and a variety of other dishes. Everything seems to be made fresh to order.
Many people came in and took orders to go. We sat at one of the picnic tables inside and watched many people come and go.
Definatly a good place to grab a quick bite and get back on the road.

“Great place to start the day”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Each day Ernie's started our day off right. Armed with a god cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich, we would head off to watch an elk herd just inside Yellowstone. The staff at Ernie's was friendly and helpful. The food was tastey, fresh and kept us full for the morning's adventures. When we are back in West Yellowstone, we will go back to Ernie's.

“We Were Glad to Find this Place”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We visited Yellowstone in the off-season. The good thing about the off-season is that the crowds are far smaller. The challenging thing is that many, or most of the concessions in the park are closed, including the food concessions.
We decided that it would be smart to buy our lunch ahead of time and take it with us. We tried Subway first. It was closed for the season. Then we remembered seeing the sign for Ernie's on the way in to town. On the sign were the words "box lunches."
We went in and ordered two box lunches. You get a sandwich with choice of bread, meat, and cheese. They have a wonderful selection to choose from. They also provided sandwich fixings like pickles, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, mayo, and mustard, all in a separate plastic bag for you to put on your sandwich just before you were ready to eat. You also got a bag of chips, a cookie, a canned soft drink (big selection), an apple, and a small candy bar.
This was all packed nicely in a lunch sack.
It was a very tasty lunch and we were happy to have it knowing that there was only one food concession open in the park on the day we visited.
They also had a great menu with breakfast and lunch items to eat in the cafe.
We definitely plan to come by next time we visit Yellowstone.

“Certainly worth the visit!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Everything in West Yellowstone is on the pricey side... That's what makes breakfast at Ernie's worth it. My wife and I were able to get two plates of eggs over english muffins smothered in hollandaise sauce for like $12, which was enough to keep us full. We went back the next morning and got breakfast again.

Didn't try lunch, but breakfast was good, and I would easily go back there again.
