Good for: Groups, Bar Scene, Local cuisine
Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours, Lunch, Dinner
Description: Located South of Town Square. The Bird provides one of the most fantastic views in the greater Teton Valley, with panoramic mountain vistas offering a brilliant sunset. A favorite watering hole of local legend Colonel Angus, it is a neighborhood pub atmosphere with rustic wood interior. Great for all but beware, the late-night scene can get quite rowdy and may not be suitable for families with young children.The Bird prides itself in offering a unique "local" experience whilst offering great cuisine. Not the place to be pandered to but if you wish to let loose, eat right, and escape the standard tourist trap come on in!

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we had our best, and so far only, outstanding meal during our week-long trip in the Teton/Yellowstone area. If you're in the mood for a juicy hamburger and some of the best french fries ever, this is your spot. The place is casual with indoor bar-type sitting and outdoor deck seating with an amazing view. Be sure to read the menu as the owner apparently has a good sense of humor. Ordering a well done burger is strongly discouraged since they grind their own meat on the premises. I ordered one anyway and it was by far the best burger I've had at any restaurant. My husband ordered his medium and his was excellent as well. My teenage son opted for the club, and was completely satisfied. They have a nice selection of beer an tap and it was the perfect compliment to the meal. I would suggest you forego the iced tea as it tasted like it had been brewed some time ago and had sat too long. The beer is certainly the better choice and that's not a bad thing. If you're looking for a bison burger, this is not the place to go, as the menu included beef burgers only.

Stopped by with two young teenagers and my wife on recent trip to Jackson Hole. Saw The Bird reccommended on Trip Advisor so decided to drive the three miles from town to check it out. Not sure how they do it, but was the best burger I think I ever had! My wife agress and the kids enjoyed theirs. Beautiful view of the outisde deck, a pooltable and nice bar area. Wasn't too crowded on a Sunday afternoon but no doubt people go there to have a little fun, a good beer and great big burger. Highly reccommended!!!!

Great burgers and brats. Loved the emphasis on home-made everything - it really shows in the quality of the food. Wait staff were friendly and helpful, and the owner brought our food to our table (I think he cooked it too). Would absolutely go back.

Had a great experience at the Bird. The food was good and the sunset was just as good. If you like a laid back atmosphere and good burgers, go to the Bird. One word of caution about the wings: we ordered some mild wings, but they weren't that mild. My daughter had to drink multiple glasses of water to put out the fire. Overall a nice experience

By far, the Bird has the best food in town. And to add to that, you can't beat the scene. Burgers are always cooked exactly how you want them. Wings are phenomenal. Beer selection is top notch. Aside from the burgers, the schnitzel and cheese steaks are out of this world. The location has been doomed for years to fail, but the Bird found the secret to being successful in this location...the Booze Bus. Call up Phil the driver, and he will pick you up at your house/hotel, etc, wherever you are. Door to door service is a huge plus. This way you also don't have to worry about limiting yourself in having a great time. My favorite spot in Jackson by far.
