“Excellent bison burger and no wait”
Review of Bear Pit Lounge

Bear Pit Lounge
Cuisines: American, Bar
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 August 2017

We were so disappointed by the dinner at the Old Faithful Inn dining room next door, that the next night we canceled our reservation and went to the Bear Pit next door. There was no wait, and they served an excellent bison burger, with a large choice of beers. If you are staying there, this would be a cheaper and faster choice.

We drove from Bozeman to old Faithful and were told the Bear Pit was the best place for A Bison Burger. Wrong!! over rated and over priced! Was not impressed by the service or the food so disappointing :(

We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed for lunch so we had lunch in the bar, and when the bison burger was served, it had a great flavor but was small for the price ($16). The other entree offered was a bowl of chili, which was really small, as well.

WE did not eat, just had a drink and desert. The place is a bit expensive but it is all part of the experience of Yellowstone. The Bison Burger looked tempting but we were on the move.

We stayed at the Inn and only stopped in the lounge for a drink. I can't offer an opinion on the food, but the main restaurant was very good. The lounge is a piece of architecture that is as nice as the rest of the Inn. I say, if you've stopped at the Inn, and why would you not want to see the most historic lodge in the park. Go to the lounge and sit for a minute while you appreciate the history and effort it took to build.
