If you're after a sophisticated restaurant with french style cuisine - forget it but if what you want is good food and plenty of with a cold beer and great service, this is what this place offers. Thoroughly recommended.

They were really super busy the night we stopped in to eat but the service was still excellent. It did take a while to get our food because of the large crowd but our waiter was constantly checking on us making sure we were doing good and updating us on our food. Food was all very tasty and exactly how... More

We stopped here after a long drive from the Bitterroot Valley of Montana on our way to Cody through Yellowstone. It was a welcome stop. The server was great and took care of us, the place was good looking and clean. Lots of cool animals mounted in a typically western theme, but not tacky. The food was excellent and well... More

The potato salad was horrible. None of us wanted it. The food was not the best and the price was high. It looks like it would be a good place, but the quality of food is not there. Out of the 4 of us, not one of us liked the food.

Food is rustic but very good and atmosphere is rustic and relaxing. Liked that you can go to a non pretentious place that needs no explanation because it's good. It's cowboy / Country good cooking with a few twists. Staff is very nice and easy going, we had a young man tonight that did a very nice job. Had special... More

We were in Gardiner for a week, and needed somewhere to eat dinner. Our 9-year old spotted this place and wanted to try it. The host was very friendly, and got us to our table almost immediately. I was expecting the usual burgers, fries etc, but was pleasantly surprised with the menu choices. I chose the country fried steak, with... More

We went here for lunch and it is probably the best place we ate in town. They have a good menu and their desserts are also home made and very good. Nice décor inside.

Not a fan. Expensive are food was not good. I had a barbecue sandwich and am generally somewhat particular about BBQ after being from Texas. Someone should just do a basic quality check before meal was served. I've tried this before to the same results. Sorry for the negative - just need employees to care.
