This is our 4th trip to Yellowstone in the last 20 years, all staying at this Holiday Inn. While the restaurant has never been stellar, with mediocre service and food that is a little on the expensive side, this visit was bizarre. The night we...More

Let's just say the waitstaff is still trying to find their way. The burgers were dry and overpriced as was all the other offerings. Not to mention the menu is lacking any substantial element to make the place stand out. You are better off waiting...More

Description
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 Yellowstone, the Branch Restaurant celebrates “Open Range Cuisine” where beef and game dishes are infused with local flavor and enjoyed with a selection of regional microbrews and hand-crafted premium cocktails. A selection of tasty vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.The restaurant boasts casual attire, seats on a first-come-first-served basis and does not accept reservations. Children's menus and box lunches are available. The Branch Restaurant & Bar is the ideal locale to enjoy a delicious dinner while recounting the day's exploration of Yellowstone National Park.Open daily, year-round.
