Where to Eat
NEW!! - The Bridger Cookhouse
Located at the new Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, scheduled to open July 2013, The Bridger Cookhouse is open for dinner daily, and offers a menu of delicious burgers with your choice of beef, bison, salmon, turkey or veggie. Complete your meal with chips, baked beans and ice cream. The Bridger Cookhouse is a shoot off of our Branch Restaurant and Bar, which is located just a few blocks away.
The Bridger Cookhouse is located at 201 Grizzly Avenue, West Yellowstone, MT 59758, right next to the pond at the Explorer Cabins.
The Branch Restaurant & Bar
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 the park, our Yellowstone restaurant, the Branch Restaurant and Bar, celebrates “Open Range Cuisine” where traditional dishes are infused with local flavor and chased with regional microbrews and hand-crafted cocktails.
The Branch Restaurant & Bar is located at 315 Yellowstone Avenue, West Yellowstone, MT 59758, right next to the Holiday Inn West Yellowstone. Call (406) 646-7365 for reservations, directions, or more information.
The Branch Bar & Casino
Harkening back to the early days of the park, The Branch Bar & Casino offers the perfect place to kick back and relax at the end of a long day exploring the park. It’s easy to regale your friends and family with geothermal memories and bison yarns at the Branch. This wildly popular West Yellowstone restaurant and bar features great food and local microbrews like Moose Drool, Trout Slayer, and Old Faithful Pale Ale.

In Park Dining
From retro, counter service diners to casual cafeterias and ice cream parlors, Yellowstone National Park restaurants keep your motor running as you discover a new wonder at every turn.
Here’s a tip to make the most of your trip: skip the traditional restaurant routine and visit the Yellowstone General Stores, where you’ll find groceries, sandwiches and light fare you can carry out (and keep the needle moving). Matter of fact, you don’t even need to enter the store - tasty “grab-and-go” sandwiches, beverages and snacks are available for purchase right in front of many Yellowstone General Store locations.
All of our West Yellowstone dining options are located within minutes of each other in West Yellowstone, easily accessible via Electric Avenue after exiting US Highway 191 or US Highway 20.
