“Best Surprise Ever”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

You walk into this place and you think the best thing about it will be the view. I was sure the food wouldn't be good, but I was VERY wrong. When I tell you the food is good, I mean it. It is REALLY good!! This is a MUST for your trip, trust me! Gourmet Pizza and great salads! Yummy pasta too.

“Good food, great view”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Weird ordering and drink system. They should probably just change that part around to be like a normal restaurant. Otherwise, the pizza and salad were good and the view from their decks and inside are amazing since they are right near the base of Grand Teton.

“Fun with gorgeous views!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Very casual, good place to come with kids to sit outside and enjoy the view. You have to order at the counter and bring it to your table so it's not really full service but the food was quite good.

“Drink & View, don't eat.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The views were spectacular and the food tasty. Bar was excellent great wine selection.
But we were there during the time of the Norovirus outbreak. We saw them doing nothing to help keep the spread of the virus down. We washed our hands well and ordred pizza cooked in a oven at 600 degrees leaning on the safe side. I saw all the staff handing menus to everyone who waked in, handling money, wiping down tables with a rag from a bucket, then going into the kitchen and grabbing a plate to serve. Utensils are not wrapped they hand then to you with your napkins using the same hands that touched the money, menus and table cleaning rags. They could improve on this a lot!

We here at Dornan's can totally appreciate any and all concerns regarding the Norovirus outbreak and sanitation practices in general. We want to ensure everyone that we took the Norovirus outbreak very seriously and reiterated to our staff how important it is to continuously wash hands. Our staff is also trained to wash hands after handling money. Our menus get wiped down everyday with a sanitizer solution. We utilize a sanitation bucket as per health department standards not only for the servers to use to wipe down tables but in fact at every station in our restaurant. We also change the water of our sanitation buckets several times a day. May it also be known that not one person (guest or staff) came down with the Norovirus or any other sickness related to our restaurant. We take a lot of pride in our cleaning practices and constantly are training our staff to get better everyday.

“Great view”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Great bar....pass on the food!
It is by far a drinking establishment that serves food. Very social atmosphere at the bar.
Outdoor seating and view is best.
The food leaves much to be desired especially considering price! The service is poor!
If you want a view you can do that from the parking lot or pretty much anywhere in the area!
Should you be seeking a social drinking establishment Dornans is ok!
it is an "I was there" kind of place. My opinion, take a picture and find somewhere else to spend your money!
