The food is deluxe and locally sourced. The bison meat served is fresh and delicious. Service is excellent and they can handle large crowds with ease or so it seems. Try the bison nachos, what a delight and unusual flavor. This is without a doubt the best restaurant in town.

Ate here 2 times on a short stay, we liked it that much. This is one of the best places to eat in West Yellowstone. Craft cocktails, had the Brussel sprout salad, it is no less than awesome. Also had the bison chili, it's Ok but it's ground bison, wish it were pieces of meat....

We stayed overnight in West Y on a trip back home. Madison Crossing was close to our motel and not a pizza place so we decided to give it a try without even perusing any reviews. So we had no expectations. WOW! Were we ever surprised. Although a Sat. night with a fairly full house we were able to get... More

My husband and I were stuck last Monday in West Yellowstone for my birthday due to extreme weather. All I wanted after a long trip was a nice glass of wine. The hotel owner suggested this restaurant. Wow! Great wine list, knowledgeable and extremely friendly staff (thanks Tut!), and wonderful food. We share the bison meatloaf with sage bread pudding... More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to check it out myself. It was great! The staff were friendly, it had a great atmosphere, the cocktails were great and so was the food. I got the steak with mash potato and chimmichurri and it was the best meal I had on my entire 3 week holiday in America.

We went to this restaurant upon the recommendation of a friend. First went on a Friday evening. The hostess was helpful, the staff was engaging, the food was excellent and just an overall great experience. We liked it so much, we went back on Sunday evening. Completely different experience. The host (an older man) got upset when we asked not... More

Looking for another dinner location in West Yellowstone we saw the menu and decided to take a chance on Madison Crosssing. While the restaurant was very nice and cozy after a long day on the trails it was just missing a little something. I hate to say many of the restaurants in West Yellowstone offer very similar fair, bison, steaks,... More

Most restaurants in town are serving bar food but this place is semi upscale. Nice choice of steaks (elk, prime, etc) as well as fish (trout) and vegetarian (squash risotto). This is a new favorite of mine for visits to Yellowstone when you need a civilized meal.

Four words: Chicken Fried Elk Steak. Words fail. And we're bonafide chicken fried steak experts. This was simply luscious. The bison nachos were also unexpectedly amazing, as was the French bread and herb butter. Go here after a long day of cross-country skiing or Olympic weightlifting...you'll need to walk in here with an extreme calorie deficit.
