Fabulous food, we had Elk Tenderloin and Pork Chop in cherry sauce, both (especially the Elk) excellent. Service was good. Decor includes LOTS of taxidermy including two Bison over the entrance and painted skulls across the top of the bar. But this is Yellowstone country,...More

The only place in West Yellowstone for really upscale dining. Food was excellent, we both had the ribeye and the service was top notch. We would definitely go back again.

This place strives for elegance in a very large and well decorated setting but the food and service can be iffy.You can get a good meal for a large price but check that the food is served hot and to your taste.

Really great chef, we had halibut and elk and both were top notch. Appetizers also incredible. Spent our anniversary in next door Under the Canvas and came here for dinner and it knocked our socks off how good the chef was.
