We stopped here after a long drive from the Bitterroot Valley of Montana on our way to Cody through Yellowstone. It was a welcome stop. The server was great and took care of us, the place was good looking and clean. Lots of cool animals mounted in a typically western theme, but not tacky. The food was excellent and well... More

The potato salad was horrible. None of us wanted it. The food was not the best and the price was high. It looks like it would be a good place, but the quality of food is not there. Out of the 4 of us, not one of us liked the food.

Food is rustic but very good and atmosphere is rustic and relaxing. Liked that you can go to a non pretentious place that needs no explanation because it's good. It's cowboy / Country good cooking with a few twists. Staff is very nice and easy going, we had a young man tonight that did a very nice job. Had special... More

We were in Gardiner for a week, and needed somewhere to eat dinner. Our 9-year old spotted this place and wanted to try it. The host was very friendly, and got us to our table almost immediately. I was expecting the usual burgers, fries etc, but was pleasantly surprised with the menu choices. I chose the country fried steak, with... More

We went here for lunch and it is probably the best place we ate in town. They have a good menu and their desserts are also home made and very good. Nice décor inside.

Not a fan. Expensive are food was not good. I had a barbecue sandwich and am generally somewhat particular about BBQ after being from Texas. Someone should just do a basic quality check before meal was served. I've tried this before to the same results. Sorry for the negative - just need employees to care.

In Gardiner for a week, my lodging was just off 89, close to Yellowstone's North entrance. Cowboy Lodge was within walking distance and I liked it so much it was my choice for dinner a second time. Friendly service, great burgers, but what won me over was the Homemade Stew and cole slaw. The cole slaw was quite possibly the... More

We wanted to try some more local fare and decided to try out Cowboys again. Ordered both our steaks medium, they came out well and so dry that we could hardly chew them. No one came back to check on us so we couldn't send them back. We told the waitress when she finally brought our check and she just... More
