Seven of us, nobody got decent food. I got real sick. Can't even make a cheeseburger. Nope, never again. Go to Three Forks or Alpine instead.

OMG BH Bob... It was OPENING WEEKEND - EARLY in the season. Our kitchen isn't even open yet; however, our cooks were kind enough to throw on some burgers for the weekend. The burgers were going out so fast that we had to keep running to the store for more FRESH burger.. So unless it was the potato chips served... More

Ate here 9/25/16 for lunch bc Mangy Moose Saloon sounded like it might be a fun experience. NOT. Waitress Denise was not interested in waiting on us. Food was iffy and place a little grungy, and we were disappointed. Slow season but don't they care about tourists to keep their business running? We were not in cycle gear, so maybe... More

Caroline: There is NO excuse for the disinterest in which my last year's employees displayed over the course of the last season. I'm a little confused about why you would write this review at the beginning of our new season; however, I can assure you that I have replaced all but one of last season's employees... We have some wonderful... More

My wife and I tried this place because we wanted to sit outside. It was offseason and not busy. Both the service and food were horrible. Very few people were here at the time aside from a few bikers, but we waited 15 minutes for a 2nd beer. Got tired of waiting, went inside and paid our bill and left.... More

Tim: I apologize for the bad service and/or food that you received when you visited the Mangy Moose last fall. Season of 2016, and also my 20th anniversary as the Mangy Moose, turned out to be disastrous. I had lazy, dishonest help, whose minds were mainly on getting off work. That disappointment will be how I remember my 20th anniversary... More

We stopped for a drink on a cold night walking down Main Street. Ambiance is ok, bartender was nice and struck up conversation with us. Drinks were good.

Jen, Thank you for some kind words about your visit to the Mangy Moose. We had a couple rough years because of bad help and yes, bad management. I had taken a step back and put my trust in people that I should not have trusted. But I'm back with a whole new crew of staff members, and we hope... More

Kate, the bartender, made our visit to the Mangy Moose fantastically memorable. We were hungry and tired after riding 48 miles on the Mickelson bike trail. The kitchen was closed, but she found us some chips and salsa to feed our depleted bodies. She was energetic and entertaining and she made our night one to remember for a long time.... More

It was a very neat place. Great atmosphere. Quick service. Nice waitress. Food was good and prices affordable. The bathroom was clean. There was a little place to shop inside for cute tshirts and other local goods.

After reading the reviews we were a little skeptical. We did not sit outside because we are not smokers. Our waitress (Kate) got our drinks within a minute, and took our food order. We both got the steak sandwich. It wasn't a great ribeye, but it was pretty good...Especially for only $12.95. The homemade potato salad was awesome! Corn on... More

Ate lunch here. Really good pulled pork burrito and excellent salsa. We ate outside. Came back for a drink that evening and went inside. It's basically the local dive bar as far as décor. But it was okay.

Service was slow. Took a long time to get our drinks. Food came at same time. I would have order another glass of wine, but the waitress disappeared. Also, I was afraid I would have to wait awhile for it. We were sitting outside, where smoking was allowed. Big mistake. Not only cigarette smoke, but some guy was smoking a... More

Mangy Moose has been owned and operated by a single woman for over 20 years. We spent those years becoming the best bar in the southern hills, and offered your typical bar menu of burgers and appetizers. We have grown to a place that sells burgers, Mexican food and a great ribeye steak on the outdoor grill. Our cooking facilities are minimal and it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the high volume of hungry customers. Our food is good and most things are made fresh from scratch, but we have the most square footage on the block and a lot of steps to get food and drinks for the hundreds and hundreds of people that stop by each day. We love to have you visit the Mangy Moose and have a good time, but if you are in a hurry... you may sometimes be disappointed in the wait. There is usually live entertainment on the outside stage to enjoy, with a full liquor bar. Please keep in mind that we are doing the best we can with the facilities and staff that we have. We are a BAR with a limited menu, that happens to sell food, and not a RESTAURANT that sells alcohol. Everything on our menu is good and we have specialty foods that you can't get at any ordinary restaurant. If you are in a hurry and looking for a large menu, we are probably not what you are looking for. But if you are looking for a great place to sit on the outdoor patio and people watch, or a great place to enjoy a cocktail, a beer, or a glass of wine and have a bite to eat... you won't be disappointed.
