Incredible meal at a really neat restaurant! Highly recommend the truffle macaroni appetizer and the Old Faithful dessert. The dessert comes with a dry ice geyser effect so well worth it just for the entertainment value, not to mention the delicious ice cream and chocolate...More

We stopped by for dinner on way back to Gardiner. Amazing dinner.....we stayed 3 days in Gardiner and wanted something besides bar food. This place was amazing. My wife had Bacalao, a fish and potato dish, and I had a NY strip steak from Montana....More

Found this restaurant on TA and the reviews did not disappoint! Seven of us ate here and we all enjoyed our entrees and desserts. We had great service and we liked the background story of the restaurant name and some dishes written on the menu.

Enjoyed wonderful hamburger (could have had buffalo burger) on a ciabatta bun. It was excellent. Also the pasta looked good,, but nothing really low calorie offered there - as well as the atmosphere was average.

They don't serve ANY alcohol or wine so how do you consider that fine dining? We left without eating. Total disappointment.

Steaks, burgers, desserts, all were fantastic!!! We paid more for meals elsewhere, but this place delivered the best steaks and overall dining experience during our stay. We had a group of 12 and nobody was unhappy. Smiles everywhere. Great time.
