I like Eggs Benedict and got a tasty very generous breakfast example here while staying in town. Service was also good.

My husband and I ate here while staying in Silver gate, MT. It was a cool, rainy evening so we both got chili. I also got a side salad. I ate my salad first and my chili was room temperature by the time I ate it. In hindsight, I should've eaten the chili first. It was still pretty good, though.... More

We asked about the rooms, they book 3 months in advance. There's a casino and restaurant in this motel.

Stopped while visiting nearby Silvergate. Evening featured prime rib which was excellant !! Others in party had chicken and strip steak which was equally as good. Service was great and the bar was very reasonable. Don't hesitate to stop in!

Decent place to eat. Numerous items on the menu, service was real good and the food arrived promptly. Prices are on the high side (burgers are over $10), but it is a resort town, so that is to be expected.

We ate here after a long day on the trail and were quite surprised at how tasty the food was! Service was good, the food did take a little while to arrive (although we were starving so it may not have been as long as it seemed!), but was worth the wait. The kids got the Juicy Lucy and loved... More

Nice restaurant, but food was not that good.. Also very expensive. Hamburger was $10. Not a lot of places to pick from in Cooke City.

Husband and I went to this place to eat breakfast as we were traveling through to get to Yellowstone. Stopped here and was pleasantly surprised with the food and the service. The people are really nice and food was tasty. I would recommend this place to eat. The town is quaint but small.

After spending the night at the Soda Butte Lodge where the restaurant is located, we decided to have breakfast. We had a breakfast special of eggs, bacon and supposedly 2 silver dollar pancakes. They must have used cake batter for the pancakes which were the size of a lunch plate and very thick and unfortunately were rather raw in the... More

I've been here many times and never been disappointed, usually get steak. Good pricing, food is consistently good, nice atmosphere for a tiny town.
