The restaurant always has a long waiting line. Better go there a bit early as they don't take reservation. The food is excellent and the ingredients are all from the local farms. The service is also very good and they are willing to take the...More

We rely upon TripAdvisor recommendations as we travel, but our first dining experience in West Yellowstone at Bullwinkle’s left us so disappointed that we scrambled eggs in our cabin the second night and bought Subway sandwiches the third. Tonight we decided to try again, and...More

We stopped in the Madison Crossing Lounge after a long day in Yellowstone National Park. It was a good choice. The food was good. I had bison meat loaf. It did taste largely like meatloaf made from any other type of meat, but I enjoyed...More

West Yellowstone is...touristy. We were delighted to find this sophisticated place, which is in a remodeled elementary school, in the first grade classroom, to be exact! They don't take reservations, but if you put your name on the list ahead of time, they will give...More

We were told that there were no reservations at all. It is a hit & miss queueing system. Be prepared to wait at least half an hour but it's more or less the only decent place in town.
