Restaurant details
Good for: Large groups, Local cuisine, Bar scene
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Dinner, Lunch
Description: Located South of Town Square. The Bird provides one of the most fantastic views in the greater Teton Valley, with panoramic mountain vistas offering a brilliant sunset. A favorite watering hole of local legend Colonel Angus, it is a neighborhood pub atmosphere with rustic wood interior. Great for all but beware, the late-night scene can get quite rowdy and may not be suitable for families with young children.The Bird prides itself in offering a unique "local" experience whilst offering great cuisine. Not the place to be pandered to but if you wish to let loose, eat right, and escape the standard tourist trap come on in!

On our trip we were getting hit or miss advice about places to eat. We read about The Bird and decided to give it a try. We went for lunch and the crowd was light. Our waitresss was very attentive and we had great burgers - best on our whole trip. Just realize that it is a "bar", it is not gourmet (and does want to be!), and is not for kids, but we sat at a table overlooking beautiful scenery with great food and big selection of beers.
Note - the burgers are served on English muffins and they emphasize on the menu how you want your meat cooked.

We stayed in a lodge about an hour away from town and were told to visit the Bird by the front desk staff. We were not disappointed in fact the first night we went to the Bird it was so noisy we thought we had made a mistake. After our food had arrived and we took our first bite we knew it was no mistake. While they are known for their burgers I would strongly recommend the French Dip and / or the Philly Steak, WOW!!! After eating at several other places in town and being disappointed with service, prices, and taste we found ourselves going back time after time to the Bird. The patio during lunch time has incredible views and the staff is incredibly friendly. Parents be warned this isn't your typical kid restaurant and they warn you of this ahead of time. So you might think twice before going on a Friday or Saturday evening. Lunches and other evenings you'll be fine with the kiddos.

We decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews. Not sure about anyone else but mapquest couldn't locate the address, kept sending us somewhere else. When we finally got there we had a difficult time getting a parking space but lucked up when the third time around another patron was leaving and we were able to park.
Let me start off by saying the music and tv competed on which could be the loudest. It was deafening. My husband and I couldn't have a conversation above either. I had the hamburger which was good and he had the club which he also indicated was good. Our issue was that our waitress was no where to be found and I finally had to ask someone else for a drink refill, think she was too busy joking with another waiter and pinching his butt. The bartender also used the "F" word when he was joking with someone which I did not appreciate. I would not bring children around to be sure. Very loud and it was hard to enjoy our food. Will not be on our agenda the next trip through. Seems to be popular with locals.

Burgers were good but nothing special, just a burger joint, if hungry for a burger and you don't want to go to a chain restaurant like mcds or Wendy's this is a good choice, also a good bonus is they have beer and a full bar

Best burger on the planet, awesome vibe, amazing view off the patio, solid beer selection, friendly service. Good Lord, I wish I lived in Jackson! Do yourself a big favor and go easy on the toppings, you want to taste the meat, it's what a burger should be. The English muffin it's served on is perfect, it lets the burger rightfully be the star of the show. As an added bonus, the wings are pretty darn good as well.

These folks take their food and fun seriously!!! Long live The Bird!!!
