We were surprised on a Monday night it was full and we're lucky to make a reservation with such short notice. Two sides of establishment with a Pub attached. We were seated on the dining side. We all had one of the three specials and all gave each of them a four to five start rating. A little $$$$ with... More

The filet steak is worth the wait! Cooked in only salt, pepper and butter these steaks really are cooked to perfection. Great desserts to top the meal off. Portion size is large so you never go away hungry. Very good staff and crew. Always a good time when we go. You will need to make a reservation as they are... More

The best bison filet I ever had. The bread is delicious. Great kids menu choices too. All of the staff are helpful and friendly. In other visits, I had the fish tacos and they were delicious too.

Never came to check on us after serving the food until she came back and presented us with a check. I had the sirloin steak fritias. Tasted good, except the fries that came with it was as room temperature... More

Most of the food here is great. But when they are extremely busy there are times when some meals arrive cold. Their steaks are superb. Their beer burger is the best burger around.

The restaurant was clean and pleasant, well decorated and excellent service. We were a group of 4 adults. A couple of us had salad and pasta dishes which they said were great. One had baby back ribs and salad, the other had salmon and salad. The salad was fresh and colorful as well as just plain good. The main dishes... More

The trouble with most folks is somewhere they forgot to relax. Serving time may appear to be a bit slow, which it is, however, where are you going? In a rush? Just slow down and enjoy life...have a bit of a chat, enjoy an appetizer, relax. The food is great, the beer cold...enjoy!!

Located inside a historic and beautifully restored 100 year old brick building, Cowfish offers a fun and lively atmosphere paired with excellent food and knowledgeable service. Our menu features hand cut steaks, local grass fed burgers, fresh fish and our innovative pastas and salads. All our beers are brewed on site by the Lander Brewing Co. Its popular lineup of refreshing, made from scratch microbrews includes beers that have won awards at the Great American Beer festival, the World Beer Cup and other competitions. Enjoy a romantic dinner in our candlelit dining room or a more casual dining experience in our pub. In the summer, we offer the added attraction of dining on our outdoor patio under a trellis of wild Cascade hops.
