Visited This area last September. Just visited Jackson Hole but definitely made the drive for another meal here. The place is casual with amazingly beautiful taxidermied animals mounted on the wall. The food and drinks are good. The grilled mahi was delicious but a little tough.

This is a bar / casino and serves the type of food that goes with that genre - burgers, sandwiches, meat-centered meals. Do not go here expecting to get fancy vegan or gluten free or any other big-city fussy diet foods. You are in Montana for goodness sake. Many of the dishes are available with bison instead of beef which... More

Amanda was our waitress and was ever so helpful. The buffalo meatballs were delicious, as were the buffalo nachos. Great assortment of western brewed beers. Definitely try it. Janice Joplin and Rolling Stones on for tunes. Really enjoyed ourselves.

Great food and service. It was pretty busy because of hockey and basketball payoffs going on but the service was as prompt and friendly.

Only reason they don't get a 1 star is because we never ate. We came to check it out for dinner. Sign on door said diner area opens at 4. It was 355pm so we went in and asked in the casino bar area if they were opening on time and they said yes any min. They offered us a... More

Nice little bar/restaurant. The food we had was nice, not gourmet but still decent enough. Good local beer which we loved. Friendly staff too and not overly expensive.

My wife and I stopped in for dinner and found a wonderful local hangout. Matt was our server at the bar and did an amazing job of entertainment and serving our meal. I would highly recommend this establishment in your travels.

We stopped in to share some appetizers. The food was great and the waitress was very nice and helpful too. She gave us the skinny in dining in West Yellowstone which was helpful. It did seem like there was a line of guys at the bar ogling over the bartenders. But other than that it was good. I've heard their... More
