We had the Bison Shepards pie. To die for. Outstanding flavor. The staff was very friendly. We ate outside at one of the tables then set along the railing of the deck with our drinks watching the river and wildlife. Be sure and call ahead,...More

I had the elk nachos, which were pretty good but nothing outstanding. My daughter and husband both had the Bison sirloin and they loved it! We enjoyed eating and overlooking the Yellowstone River.

Staff is always very friendly and nice. The food is good but on the pricey end of Gardiner. You can never go wrong with their bar foods but their steaks are typically more rare than ordered. Great location and a fun spot, especially on Sundays

We had very tasty elk and bison burgers out on the patio overlooking the river. The chairs were not very comfortable, but as expected, being patio furniture. The meal was a bit pricey, but we enjoyed the antiques and the nostalgic atmosphere.

We enjoyed our dinner, the sounds of the river, and the sun setting. The proximity to our lodging was great; the old railway station is rustic and interesting, and elk tacos were delicious.
