This place has very unique atmosphere, good food selection and proper service. We ordered Shepherd Pie and Pulled Pork sandwich which was served by very polite and caring guy named Jared. We highly recommend this place for evening dinner or quick lunch.

A couple of locals told us about the Iron Horse (and how to find it) and recommended the Elk spicy sausage nachos. My wife chose the Cheeseburger, but I opted for a local craft Lager and the Nachos! Delightful!!

After a mediocre dinner at the Mammoth Hotel dining room, we decided to try this restaurant in Gardiner the following evening. I have to admit -- it doesn't look like much from the parking lot. I almost suggested to my husband that we go somewhere else. But we decided to give it a try and I'm very glad we did.... More

We ate her for dinner while visiting Yellowstone. The atmosphere on the deck is relaxing. We ate the elk burger and elk meatloaf. Both were delicious and the mashed potatoes that came with the elk meatloaf were yummy. It gets crowded so if you want to eat on the deck, get there before 6:00. The bathrooms need some work but...

Tried to have lunch here but the place was far to hot inside and with the dirt on the tables and Windows and flies everywhere, I had to leave. I couldn't wait for the waitress to get back we just got up and left,so I can't comment on the food or service. First impressions mean a lot.

We were her last year. Really liked it. This year the bartender was ride and could care less about my husbands food allergy. So we left and went somewhere else. You would think they would want the business. Super disappointed.

They didn't have normal food. It was Elk burgers that were dry. It was crowded and we had to wait a long time.

Elk nachos, BBQ chicken with baked potato, corn on the cob, watermelon slaw, and bison Shepards pie cannot be beat! Best meal this whole trip! And patio seating on the Yellowstone River! Stop here!!!!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a guide. We were told it was "typical pub food." My family enjoyed the experience so much we went back again. Some of us had bison burgers and others elk burgers. Delcious. Best to eat outside if you can.
