This was the only restaurant we found that had a full dinner menu that was open during the slack season. The food was good, but nothing special.

Thank you for finding us! West Yellowstone can be pretty quiet during certain times of the year. Check us out again if you are in the area. More

We got there in happy hour and drinks were about half price or less. The service was really good and the meals (including the bison chilli) were very tasty. Loved checking out the old restored train carriage near the entrance.

My 8 year old daughter and I came in for dinner on May 23, 2015. As a guest at the adjacent Holiday Inn Conference Center it seemed like a convenient choice. Our waitress was a woman named Bobbie. She seemed nice and attentive. We put in for an order of kids Mac and Cheese and the Special for me. The... More

The breakfast options on the menu were good and very well cooked. We ordered the omelette and fresh fruit and both were very tasty.

This was the one place we tried in West Yellowstone that our hotel had not recommended, they should have. The atmosphere was nice and the staff friendly. The food is, of course, the test of any restaurant and it was very good. The salmon but was noteworthy. Give it a try you will like it.

We booked our vacation to Yellowstone via a company Yellowstone Vacations. In the package there was a dinner at the Branch Restaurant included. The food was excellent, we had quesadilla as starter and bison stroganoff as main course. The service was very good but just one small remark is that they served the main course while still eating our starter.... More

It's a small venue, but as others have noted, convenient if staying at the hotel. The menu is not large, but has what you would expect. They were very busy with only one empty table when we came in around 7pm, and staff does seem small for what seating they do have. We did have to wait for a server... More

We had dinner here. They were slow to wait on us as their seemed to be confusion on who was supposed to wait us. Our server was polite, but inattentive. We had to flag him down for this and that. The big negative, however, was that we both got poorly cooked steaks. My wife ordered medium rare and got well... More
