This is possibly the best restaurant in town - excellent mixed American cuisine, they brew their own beer and have a wide selection. It would be my 1st choice next time I visit!

My husband and I ate at Cowfish while on a trip. It was recommended by our motel desk clerk. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals which we ate with a sampler flight of 4 of their excellent beer! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great meal!

The filet steak is worth the wait! Cooked in only salt, pepper and butter these steaks really are cooked to perfection. Great desserts to top the meal off. Portion size is large so you never go away hungry. Very good staff and crew. Always a good time when we go. You will need to make a reservation as they are... More

The best bison filet I ever had. The bread is delicious. Great kids menu choices too. All of the staff are helpful and friendly. In other visits, I had the fish tacos and they were delicious too.

Located inside a historic and beautifully restored 100 year old brick building, Cowfish offers a fun and lively atmosphere paired with excellent food and knowledgeable service. Our menu features hand cut steaks, local grass fed burgers, fresh fish and our innovative pastas and salads. All our beers are brewed on site by the Lander Brewing Co. Its popular lineup of refreshing, made from scratch microbrews includes beers that have won awards at the Great American Beer festival, the World Beer Cup and other competitions. Enjoy a romantic dinner in our candlelit dining room or a more casual dining experience in our pub. In the summer, we offer the added attraction of dining on our outdoor patio under a trellis of wild Cascade hops.
