Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine, Groups, Bar Scene
Dining options: After-hours, Lunch, Dinner, Breakfast
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!

The reviews we read seemed like this would be a GREAT place to take our boys who are about to leave for college. It was just ...ok... was several miles out of town, so we didn't encounter many other "tourists"- it was a local type place- mostly college age kids. Burgers were huge- but buns were actually english muffins! Good food... but not great!

We read the reviews on TA and decided to check out The Bird on a Thursday night around 7:30 PM. We wanted a local spot for dinner and this seemed to fit the bill. The outdoor patio was full and the only available seating was in the bar. We waited for the server to come to our booth for a drink order for almost 10 minutes. First clue of what to expect. When we ordered ice water, she seemed a bit miffed. We got our tepid water after another 10 minutes. Second clue. We had to wait another 10 minutes for the server to come by and say "You know what you want now?" So we are already here a half hour and we have tepid water and an annoyed server. Major clue.Our table ordered 2 burgers and a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. Some guy came by about 30 minutes after we placed our order and inquired, "you guys waiting?" Ah, yes, we are. Then, he was off to another table. So after 55 minutes from the time that we placed our order and 1 hour and 25 minutes after we sat down, we got our food!!! The burgers were good. The Caesar salad was overpriced for what was received. We tried asking/begging the server for ice water. Again, we got the tepid water. I didn't know that we should have apologized for not ordering alcohol! How does this place get rated so well? The menu was very clear to state that they do not cater to kids and that this is a BAR that serves food. How does it take almost an hour to get 2 burgers, fries and a Caesar salad to a table? This was the biggest disappointment on our trip to Jackson. I do not recommend this place.

Had dinner here, great food and good time! Steaks were good and cooked great. Schnitzel, a little dry. Great French dip and burgers, with very friendly servers.

Our server was nice, and the food was good. Here are the facts of our experience:
1. Waited 40 minutes for our food
2. Diet sodas are not available (we were able to get unsweetened iced tea)
3. Menu specifically states that owners did not have children in mind when they created the restaurant. If you have kids, I would choose a different place.
4. On the wall it says in big handwritten letters "Fun Suckers Leave".
In general it seemed a little unfriendly to us.

What a perfect place to find a good burger with great service, and a wonderful view of the beautiful scenery. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and looking for a non-touristy place where the locals frequent. The beer selection was impressive and the guac burger was amazing. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is the beer was pricey, about $7 a drink. That said, I would highly recommend this local gem. They cook your food to perfection and provide top-notch service. I will be sure to return whenever I'm in the area again.
