“Great for breakfast”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

A "don't miss" for breakfast in all the Rocky Mountains. Lots of locals eat here and you'll get a wonderful eye full.

The food is terrific and the buffet will fill any appetite.

Dinner and lunch are well worth it too! We visit Cody several times a year for many years and simply will not miss the Irma!

After seeing Buffalo Bill's museum we went there to look around and get a bite to eat. What a cool historical place all in itself.The animal mounts throughout are really cool.Food was good service was friendly and also good.

You cannot visit Cody without stopping at the Irma. Get a real taste of this Western town and walk where Buffalo Bill walked!

Eh! Cool room, middling food, service was just okay. The place is very period-correct, but in the end, it's a restaurant serving decent food...no more.

“Ho-hum experience”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Okay, I understand all the history behind the Irma so I was quite disappointed when we dined there. Unfortunately, we opted for the buffet and had a choice of fish (dry and lukewarm), curry (borderline tasteless), noodle (ho-hum), meatballs (okay) and an assortment of salads and vegies.
The few waiting staff were brusque, no doubt because of the demands from all the tourists - like us - dining there.
At one point, a woman collapsed near the toilets and none of the staff responded. Eventually, my wife - a nurse - and another diner helped comfort her, checking all the vital signs as she seemed quite "out of it".
At their insistence, a staff member finally rang for an ambulance as the woman slowly came around.
The Irma's surrounds are fairly impressive; it has retained its historic flavour but the ambience could be so much better with more memorabilia, better dining furniture - something that provides the wow factor, that this IS a place which is an important part of western folklore.
It just looks tired and I fear this complacency will cost the owners in the long run. Cody is a terrific town - great shops, great restaurants and an amazing museum.
The Irma has so much potential but needs a revamp - desperately.
