“Try the Mama Bear!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We ate there three times while on vacation visiting Yellowstone. Had dinner the first night and breakfast the next two mornings. Although seating and service were somewhat slow, the food was very good. The Mama Bear breakfast was so good one morning, we did a repeat visit/order the following morning.

“Bring your appetite for breakfast - ample food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Six of us had breakfast at Running Bear, and we definitely did not leave hungry! We ordered different types of omelets, and they were all served in LARGE portions with toast, bacon, etc. The food was good, and the cost reasonable. It's a typical family-style restaurant - it was a little noisy because it was busy, but the food made up for it. If you want to start up your day "fueled up", stop here!

“Don't miss for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Great pancakes, best I've had. Service was excellent. Staff knows you are vacationing and heading for a full day in Yellowstone so plates are good size and service is quick.

“Good Food in West Yellowstone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We had breakfast here several times and lunch once. We sampled quite a few items on the menu and all of them were tasty.

The servers were friendly and service was good. The location is not in the busy part of town, but Running Bear is a good choice for family food.

“Best breakfast in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

After reading all the reviews about this place, we were pretty excited to have breakfast here. We were not disappointed. I built my own omelet, and there was SO much meat and veggies on the inside. It was overflowing. We also split a buckwheat pancake on the side, and it was delish. They serve two different syrups- both yummy. I would definitely recommend this place. You may need to wait a little bit cause it's so popular for breakfast, but it was worth the wait. Seems like locals and tourists alike dine here.
