The service was fantastic! My burger was undercooked the first time but they accepted mine back quickly with no complaints and brought out a new one.

Stopped here after a day in yellowstone. Had the pulled pork and elk burger. The pork was a littl dry. Sweet potato fries were good. Good selection of beer. Great view sitting on the patio with the yellowstone river running by.

The elk nachos were great. Share them with someone, there is alot there. Nice to sit on the deck along the river, especially when the bear is following the river bank.

We are happy you had a good time dining with us. Our nachos are a hit with locals and tourists alike. The bear is also very popular in the fall. Thank you for the positive review and come back and enjoy the scenery again!

We had a decent dinner at this place, well but had a difficulties to be seated. There quite a few places outside said as reserved, but no-one really arrived during our dinner. Service could be a bit more organized as well.More

We are sorry you had slower service while dining with us. We do take multiple reservations at times with larger groups that are often running late (enjoying the park, rafting, getting stuck in a buffalo jam etc.) Please come enjoy a great meal with us...More

It was ok but not many people as I guess the off season just started. It was very typical for me as was the service and staff.
