Most restaurants in town are serving bar food but this place is semi upscale. Nice choice of steaks (elk, prime, etc) as well as fish (trout) and vegetarian (squash risotto). This is a new favorite of mine for visits to Yellowstone when you need a civilized meal.

Four words: Chicken Fried Elk Steak. Words fail. And we're bonafide chicken fried steak experts. This was simply luscious. The bison nachos were also unexpectedly amazing, as was the French bread and herb butter. Go here after a long day of cross-country skiing or Olympic weightlifting...you'll need to walk in here with an extreme calorie deficit.

Being foodies from LA, we didn't come to West Yellowstone for fine cuisine, but I was pleasantly surprised at Madison Crossing for their excellent flatiron steak, local pork chop, and tasty burger. Even their charcuterie platter was top notch. Prices may be a notch higher than the average diner/pub in town, but still fair. Service was friendly and efficient. Thor... More

This was our second visit to Madison Crossing Lounge and it did not disappoint. The Bison meatloaf was outstanding. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere cozy and tasteful. This is our favorite restaurant in W. Yellowstone.

My wife and I dined here and based on the reviews we were excited. The best I can describe this experience was hit and miss. We were greeted and seated with super customer service. Our waitress was friendly and polite. Atmosphere was good. That's the hit. I asked the waitress several questions about the menu. Each answer was she would... More

We went there to celebrate the holiday. Staff and atmosphere were very nice. The Brussels spout salad was very good. The man had an elk steak of which he enjoyed. I had Cornish hen which was unfortunately undercooked. By the time it was returned, our dinner was done - and the hen was still red inside. I was told that... More

We stopped for dinner on a recent visit to Yellowstone. We sat at the bar and John was our bartender/server. He was very busy with the service bar as well as the bar customers, and while it took a little time for him to warm to the bar guests he did eventually and ended up being engaged with us. I... More

This is the third time we've eaten there in the off-season (fall). In addition to being one of the few restaurants open in late fall, the dinner specials are usually very good. The cocktails are also very good & generous. Housed in the first grade classroom of the old elementary school, the staff were attentive and helpful.

We arrived 5 minutes before the restaurant opened and were curtly told the restaurant opens at 5 (even though the doors were open and some folks (maybe staff) were sitting at tables and bar). We asked to see a menu - which the woman at the door grudgingly flounced off and got - sour look on her face, threw it... More

Average burgers, dry buns, French fries were actually huge chunks of baked potatoes with no sour cream . Service personnel acted bored. Nice atmosphere but overpriced. There were no options for sides. Better burgers and fries at Burger King (and much cheaper! )
