We went for lunch when we first arrived in town. We ordered the hot beef and hot turkey sandwiches. The beef one came out cold. They took it back and heated it but a bit disconcerting when a hot sandwich, including the mashed potatoes were cold. Overall average in taste which means it is better than most West Yellowstone.

His eggs were overcooked and the toast was cold. My biscuits and gravy were barely warm and mushy. Usually TripAdvisor reviews are spot on but not this time for us. Wait staff was efficient.

Loved it. Lots of food. One of us got the chicken fried steak, one got the pancake breakfast sandwich and another basic eggs and hash browns. Fast, quick service. Hit the spot.

We arrived late on Sat 4/29 after 4 hours on a plane and a 5hpur drive from Salt Lake into West Yellowstone at Moose Creek Inn. Sunday, the streets were empty, we walked to Running Bear, a few blocks away. Had friendly service, good food, plenty of coffee at a reasonable price.

We went here for breakfast before going into Yellowstone. It was a great choice. There was more food than I could eat. Great deal and great service.

Really good breakfast!!! The burrito was big and spicy. The non-traditional French toast was yummy. The sweet roll was perfect not over backed and not coated in icing. Portions were large. Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommend.

We were leaving Yellowstone by the west exit and stopped for gas. I asked the cashier where she would have breakfast and she said "Running Bear Pancake House without hesitation. We followed her advice and found this great little restaurant tucked away in West Yellowstone. Brian, our waiter, provided great service. The food was very satisfying and delicious. If your... More

We stopped in and had breakfast - I got the burrito and my husband got the pancakes and bacon. It was all very yummy and decently priced. They did offer sandwiches to go, and we should have ordered some for our trip into Yellowstone.
