We arrived here after driving to see the sights for a cold drink and an appetizer. The bartender was the rudest person I have met in Montana! We ordered drinks and chicken wings and went to sit outside. The chicken wings arrived cold and we sent them back. The waitress that served them took them back with a few pieces... More

What a great restaurant/bar. The owner was a peach. It was a great time to go as the snowmobiles were crossing the lake and it was fun to watch. They also had ice fishing going on. It is the perfect place as it is a time warp of all the old places we love and it has not changed. Had... More

As soon as we walked in the bartender/waitress said she had a good salad bar, salad bars are not something Im used to but the one at the Happy Hour was surprisingly good! It was a fun atmosphere, nice and trashy. We watched a huge thunderstorm roll in over the lake, its got great scenery. The bartender/waitress was also hilarious... More

Full kitchen is always appreciated! The Happy Hour bar/restaurant is directly across the street. The bar is darling inside & has a small town cozy feel. The bartender(s) were awesome! The food was...

We were staying at the Hebgen Lake Mountain Inn which is directly across the street from Happy Hour. The atmosphere is super fun! Note: may not be suitable for children. The bartender/waitress sat right down at our high top and visited while she took our order! There was some drink specials and a good selection on the menu! We had... More

Drove down to the Happy Hour Bar with some friends. Even though we all live about 50 miles away this was our first trip here. We had a great time. A nice change of pace during winter. Even though the bar was busy the service was excellent. Most of us had seafood (Crab legs and Shriimp) which can be scary... More

A trip to West Yellowstone is not complete without a stop at the Happy Hour. My first visit back in 2007 was magical...complete with mountain sunset followed by a big storm rolling in across the lake. Get honked at the Happy Hour and you'll never forget it!! I have been all over much of the planet and this place is... More

This is a fun place to stop while snowmobiling! The atmosphere is very relaxed and fun, but not a place you would want to take grandma... Unless she likes to pose for pictures bare chested while throwing back beers! The wait staff is friendly and humorous and the bar food is pretty tasty.
