What a great restaurant. Had dinner there on Sept 20, called at 6:30 and got a reservation for 7:15 pm. Hard to believe that a hotel restaurant would have great food and great service, it does both in spades.
I ordered a salad and had the buffalo ribeye with fries, the ribeye is the house specialty. The salad was fresh and well balanced but, you really can't easily mess up a salad. The buffalo ribeye was nothing short of spectacular, tender and perfectly cooked at medium rare. The fries were excellent. The wine list while not extensive was good end well balanced. My wife ordered the hamburger and she was very pleased with the quality of the meat.
We both splurged and ordered the German Chocolate cake, wow. What a finish to dinner.
We are in Cody for dinner one more night, we are going back there again.

I always try to avoid the obvious tourist traps in a town but who would think that so many locals would eat in a hotel restaurant? But it was obviously true - this was confirmed as a special place for locals for breakfast or an evening out. The menu for breakfast and dinner was varied and my meal was excellent every time. In fact, I gave up eating elsewhere in Cody. My only comment was that the staff while incredibly earnest, there are some areas of professionalism to brush up on. The preparation time appeared to take longer than it should, and there were a number of items unavailable on the weekend that I was there. But that wouldn't (and didn't) keep me away. I would frequent this restuarant if it were in my home town.

Thanks to TA reviews we got reservations here and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Nice decor, friendly staff, good wines, interesting, well-prepared food. The chef even changed the preparation of the special for me ( grilled instead of fried). Melanie our server was charming and efficient. We especially enjoyed watching a sweet couple in their 80s on a date.

When was the last time that you heard, "The best food in town is at the Best Western"? Right, me either. But in Cody, it's the truth. We stayed here for 3 days. We ate at a couple of other places, but breakfast at the hotel was so good, we decided to try them for lunch and ended up eating there for every meal until we left. The food was delicious, reasonably priced and artfully presented. There were interesting choices, like grilled trout with your eggs for breakfast. The steak that my husband had for dinner was the best steak he had eaten in ages (including at a local steakhouse). The staff is charming. We have nothing but fond memories and if we're ever back in Cody, we will head here first thing!

Generally, restaurants within a hotel have been a disappointment in the past, but this place is a notable exception. Had dinner here, and was impressed enough to return for breakfast. Food was exceptional, service was excellent in the evening (OK for breakfast). Good value for the money in an area generally full of tourist traps!!
