My barbecue chicken was tasteless and dry. The barbecue sauce was runny and bland, the backed potato was overdone and the potato skin looked like it hadn't been washed. My wife's chicken salad was equally bad. The bill came to over $30. The service wasn't...More

We had dinner here and had generally good service. Our group of six ordered a wide variety of entrees but the best ones were the bison and beef choices. Pastas and fish entrees do not seem to be their specialty. Soups were good. Bison burgers,...More

West Yellowstone is horribly commercialised and The Three Bear is like so many places which run a wait list and try to turn tables over as quick as possible. However, our server was helpful, there was a decent salad bar and portions were generous. I...More

Crowded restaurant focused on turning your table as quickly as possible. My husband is celiac and we went there because it seemed like he might have a lot of options. Our server was friendly, but did not really understand the issues around gf requests. Bartender...More

All good -- simple eggs, bacon or sausage, hash brown, toast, and coffee. Would have rated it 5 stars but reserved that for an equally good breakfast that was a couple of dollars cheaper it a nearby town.

This was, by no means, a light breakfast. The kids loved the different hot chocolates, but probably did not eat much of their meals beyond that. The service was very warm and welcoming. My breakfast burrito was delicious and I saved half for our day...More
