The chef here is superb. We have tried other places in Gardiner, but this one beats them all. I had my birthday party here last May, sixteen of us, and the guys were so great. All the food came out at the same time, hot , with smiles. We have been back this fall, and I can reccomend the dry... More

We visited this bar/restaurant and they had a couple of gluten free options on the menu. You would be best just having a steak or a hamburger without seasonings with a baked potato and corn on the cob. Food was good, busy place but service was good. TV's at the bar for sports. Outside dining with view of the river... More

Look carefully for the road leading to the Iron Horse, as it's easy to miss - also watch out for the potholes! The food and service was very good, service was good, with interesting/fun decorations.

Have eaten at Iron Horse Bar and Grille three times in 4 days. Wonderful and unique seating area. Food was delicious. Great atmosphere for couples as well as families. Great view from deck which overlooks Yellowstone River. If you like sitting at the Bar, there's a separate bar area. Portions of food was very good. Unique mix of area cuisine... More

The Huckleberry Margarita is the Bomb. Loved the Elk Meatloaf and mashed potatoes with a fantastic brown sauce (Not heavy like gravy). Fun atmosphere, friendly, fast service. Sort of hard to find since tucked away and building looks like a poll barn, but once inside, you will know you are at a restaurant!

Great burgers. We heard several others talking about their burgers being excellent too! We had the bison burger. Perfectly cooked and the fries were good too. I ordered a side salad - fresh greens mushrooms onions cucumbers cherry tomatoes scrumptious 😄

Since food options in the Park are quite limited, we found ourselves driving the short distance over to Gardiner for better options. There was some road constructions over at Gardiner and it was pretty tricky the road leading to this pub. Service was quite nice and friendly and they served decent pub fare and drinks. All in all, I would... More
