Had the country fried steak and wife had shrimp. Was tasty and tender, but no milk gravy. Clean, i would come back

Food was well cooked and appetizing, portion sizes on the small side but on the whole not a bad meal. Menu was a bit restrictive.

Stopped in to try the Brisket and pulled pork. Excellent Brisket- on par with Texas style. Staff very friendly and cooperative. We ate outside for the view and the weather was nice.

We stopped here on leaving Yellowstone... The staff was very nice and the BBQ was basically good, but the portions were a bit small and there was IMHO too much sauce on the brisket to really taste the meat. Still, a good choice for grabbing...More

The food was good and the service was fast and friendly. They modified our orders exactly as we requested. We will stop by next time we are in town.

This place had really good BBQ pork sandwich and great fries, my son had a cheeseburger but said his fries were so good. Small place good food. Give it a try, much better than some reviews I read.

The stew was lukewarm. The fries were cold but were replaced without question. We believe it must have been the regular cook's night off.

Great food and service! We arrived about 20 minutes before closing time. We talked about going somewhere else, due to late arrival. We enjoyed our food and service!

Menu was surprisingly generous as were the portions. Chose the evening special of home made lasagna and salad - very tasty. With a name like Cowboy of course there were western themed decorations everywhere. Friendly staff, comfortable booth, good prices made our visit quite enjoyable....More

Probably the usual - potatoes and salads. But the owners are so nice, you might visit with them to see what they could do. I remember they had a bean dish that was good.
There are 2 different addresses posted. Are there 2 different locations? Or is one the lodge and the other the restaurant?

The restaurant is located on the main road and is quit easy to be found. For the lodge, I think you have to be in the restaurant as well. Just want to point out again, the restaurant is very good.
