I had the best trout and my husband had the prime rib. The place to go if you find yourself in Island Park. No credit cards. Cash or checks. Worth the effort to have cash!

We were renting a cabin nearby and found this restaurant through Trip Advisor. We returned after a long, rainy day in Yellowstone and decide to dine out rather than cook. It is a small, family-run restaurant with all the tastes and touches of home. The...More
