“Nice place to unwind after a day of geyser-watching”
Review of Bear Pit Lounge

We enjoyed our visit to the Bear Pit following a day of hiking around Yellowstone's geysers. They had an impressive selection of local beers and wines in addition to a varied menu featuring elk and bison. We had a couple hamburgers and they were grilled to perfection. I also had a couple Bozone Amber ales (which they offered on tap), which were wonderful. The atmosphere and service were very good and the food was better than the average bar fare. We enjoyed our laid-back hour at the grill and would definitely go back.

They don't have too many options on the menu, but you can get a hamburger or a bison burger. The wings were some of the best we have ever had. You can also have a cocktail with your dinner. It is a third of the cost of the dining room.

My husband and I ate in the Bear Pit Lounge last month while staying in the Old Faithful Lodge. We were a little bored of the cafeteria and didn’t want the expense or queues associated with the main dining room. This is a really good spot for a casual meal or a drink. Service is brisk and efficient. The menu isn’t extensive, but everything we had was really tasty. We shared the wings to start and then I had a bison burger while my husband had a regular burger. All were extremely tasty, especially the bison burger. We also had a couple of cocktails (I really recommend the Indian Paintbrush).

Overall, we enjoyed our meal and felt it was good value for money. All things considered, it’s really not that much more expensive than the cafeteria and it is a vast improvement in both quality and ambience.

Only thing I didn’t like was that the tables had a cushioned leather top and it made me nervous that I was going to spill my drink while cutting my burger!
