Had breakfast here one morning before heading out to the park and wasn't disappointed. The service was great - super fast and our server was super friendly. I had 2 eggs over easy and they cooked them perfectly. Would certainly eat here again.

Went there for breakfast while visiting the area. Food was "OK" - but, they were very nice and portions were enormous! Given the sad lack of choices in West Yellowstone, I'd pick this over places like the Holiday Inn (which was ghastly).

We ate here for dinner and breakfast during our stay in the lodge. I wish I could rate this higher. We are not fans of eating huge portions during our meals. This restaurant did a fair job of managing crowds in the middle of the summer. We think there must be a labor shortage in West Yellowstone. The restaurant is... More

Ate breakfast here a few mornings, and had dinner one night. All of the food was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly.

One of us had eaten at Three Bear on a previous trip 20 years ago, on that occasion the food had been memorably good. This time it was not. However, putting the food in context with what we'd been unfortunate enough to eat in the park on the previous two days, Three Bear was acceptable but then the park food... More

We went in the first day looking for a good hot meal. The chicken was very under cooked and they didn't even ask if we wanted anything else.. Just said find and they would take care of the bill. So we left having only eaten a salad and a roll.

We were in the mood for a good Steak. They had a very good salad bar. The Filet and the Prime Rib we cooked just the way we requested. We had a short wait but it was worth the wait.

We liked everything about this place. The staff was exceptionally friendly and our burgers were great.The atmosphere is just what you would expect in a Montana restaurant. Try it you will be glad you did.

We went there for our end of summer vacation. I had the wild game meatloaf smothered in ubiquitous "brown gravy", my husband had the elk tips. The meatloaf was almost tasteless, the brown gravy...had at least been warmed between can and plate. I honestly can't remember what came with it, it was that unmemorable. My husband's elk tips were moderately... More
