The food was good and the service great. It was way off a main road. Was surprised to find a place to eat on this road.

Delicious restaurant in Island Park. Lovely wildflowers out front. We sat on the deck and drank many refills of the perfect lemonade and freshly brewed ice tea. The calzone, Thai salad and fish and chips were delicious and large portions. Service is friendly and efficient. One of the highlights of our trip to Yellowstone.

Ate at this restaurant three while on a family vacation to Yellowstone, staying at Island Park cabin. Food was very good, actually had a great bison steak one evening. Super friendly staff and great service. Location is neat and we ate outdoors.

Everytime we come here, we leave happy and full. Love the staff and the food is great. Never had a bad meal. The cinnamon rolls are a must! You will not be disappointed!

I had the NY strip done a perfect medium rare. Great seasoning. My husband loved his burger and my kids ate every last bite of their fish and chips (a rare occurrence in our family). The food was pretty darn good but the service puts this place at 5 stars in my book. Both servers were more than accommodating, patient,... More

Pulling up I didn't know what to expect. The building and outside were cute. I got chicken fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes and a side salad. Very delicious! The salad was different, but I loved it. I had the Huckleberry cheesecake and it was so good! I literally closed my eyes and smiled after each bite. By the door,... More

Everything is homemade and delicious. We enjoyed tamales and burgers as well as scrumptious desserts.

It was a little off the beaten path but not totally in the Boondocks. They have out door seating as well. It is cash only but other than that we enjoyed our visit. I had the fish and chips large. The coleslaw and fries was good. The beer battered fish was cooked properly and was served hot. Wait staff was... More

The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is fun, and one of our group played all the instruments hanging on the walls and gave us live music!

Considering that Island Park ID is surrounded by trout lakes, rivers and streams, this is the only restaurant that serves trout, and only done one way. Don't get me wrong, it was well prepared, as Trout Almandine, but a plain panko grilled trout sure would have been good. Also, no liquor, just beer and wine. All in all, an OK... More
