We were sooo impressed with the resturant, staff and food. Would recommend the chicken pasta for sure and the meatloaf. Do not pass up their specialty drinks, really good.

The place is very nice. Food wise the bison burger was excellent (hence the 4 stars or else I would have given 3 only), the onion soup was good, but the trout didn't taste good at all! Do not ask for wine recommendation...

Delicious meal from start to finish! I was not expecting fine dining in West Yellowstone! We tried the Brussel salad, hanger steak, hamburger, and prosciutto pasta. Everything was excellent! Wish we had saved room for dessert!

A little pricey for the setting, location and food but a nice atmosphere, menu and bar. There isn't exactly a huge amount of competition in town in winter.

We were told that there were no reservations at all. It is a hit & miss queueing system. Be prepared to wait at least half an hour but it's more or less the only decent place in town.

If you make no reservation, I assume there can be a waiting time of about half an hour.
