This is a nice little cozy place to wat. My wife got the steak and I got ribs. The steak was really good. The ribs not as good, I like mine a little crispy on the outside and with a little more flavor. So good, but not quite 5 stars.

We go to Boondocks every time we are at our cabins in Island Park. They have a great menu, good service and the best chicken fried steak I've ever had!! The owners are great too!!

Boondocks is an amazingly great place to eat! The older man who cooks is an awesome cook. Everything tastes amazing! A little spendy, but for the food we get we cannot complain.

Came here with the family after a long day hiking in the Tetons. It was the perfect end to a long day with good food, service and ambiance. Lots of locals there.

You can tell this restaurant is good because it's where the locals go (at least the night we were there it seemed to be all locals). The restaurant is quaint and welcoming, the staff is super friendly, the food ranged from excellent to OK (the prime rib was a little too fatty), the serving sizes were good and the prices... More

Stopped in because of previous reviews and found the food to be okay, but nothing special. The service was good, but we wouldn't go out of our way to go there again if ever in the area.

The Boondocks is as the name says "In the Boondocks. Service was speedy, Food was excellant. I had fish & chips which was excellant. Portion size was large. Fish was crispy but not overcooked. This is a cash only resteraunt, which was not a problem. Place was full. Rasonably priced.

The food and service were very good. I especially liked the green chili soup and the onion rings. You don't find good beer battered onion rings anymore. Tamales were very good as well. If I'm ever back that way, I would go again!!

My husband and I enjoyed the food. The place was cute and cozy! We normally don't carry cash but we did that day and good thing since they don't accept cards!
