“Good Food, Good Prices”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Located in Downtown Gardiner along the main drag. Well attended, with a nice friendly staff. The menu was mostly sandwiches, steaks, burgers, and barbeque. The brisket was tender enough to cut with a fork, the pulled pork was also delicious. Portions are large enough you won't want dessert unless you have more room than we did. I would definitely recommend Cowboy Lodge for a nice relaxed place to eat.

“Great service, good food”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Our server couldn't have been nicer or more pleasant! He was anxious to make sure everything was right for our order -- checking back several times. My husband had the bison steak -- so lean that it was a little "tough", but he wanted to try it. I had the chicken tenders and they were really good! Nice cowboy ambiance -- good experience!

“Rustic Dining”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Bar-B-Que is the house specialty here. We shared our picnic table with a couple visiting from the UK which was fun. We ordered the St. Louis style pork ribs with beans, coleslaw and side salads with blue cheese dressing which was excellent. The other sides were also good. I ordered a glass of really awful wine which I exchanged for a beer. The ribs were a little over cooked but flavorful. The waitstaff were not very friendly to downright snippy. One got the feeling that time spent with a customer was money coming out of their pockets. That attitude can quickly spoil a nice dinner. The meal was alright and if I was in the mood for Bar-B-Que would probably give them a second try.

“Bison burgers worth the trip.”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Was looking for a bison burger in this town. It appears that some restaurants have closed for the season. However, Cowboys was open and offered the much needed bison burger. Burger was good, but forgot to ask for condiments so burger was a little bare. Needless to say this was a take out, but it was good never the less. Would definitely go again.

“Good price performance”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

This is a pretty good eatery in Gardiner if you want meat. They menu is reasonably priced and the food is good. Most of the menu entrees are meat so if you want something else this isn't the place.
Service is good. The wine selections could be a lot better
