Description
Westward expansion brought rail travel and ranches to the Continental Divide, where cowboys (and today’s national park visitors) could live the dream of a horizon-free lifestyle. Inspired by the natural beauty of Yellowstone, the Branch Restaurant celebrates “Open Range Cuisine” where beef and game dishes are infused with local flavor and enjoyed with a selection of regional microbrews and hand-crafted premium cocktails. A selection of tasty vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.The restaurant boasts casual attire, seats on a first-come-first-served basis and does not accept reservations. Children's menus and box lunches are available. The Branch Restaurant & Bar is the ideal locale to enjoy a delicious dinner while recounting the day's exploration of Yellowstone National Park.Open daily, year-round.
