Jackson Hole, Big Sky, and Taos, oh my!

My family and I are heading to Yellowstone but on our trip we will be visiting all of theses place. I would love some input on where to eat. I have researched a little but I wanted some more current suggestions. We are looking for local cuisine... Thanks!

  1. Can you give some more details on what you are looking for (price range, atmosphere, etc)? I can help with JH recs. Off the top of my head, if you are looking for something "local," that usually means someone who is looking to try game and fish, even though those items are often not sourced locally. The Snake River Grill ( is a great fine dining option that serves excellent meats and game in a refined-rustic atmosphere. I would pass on the Gun Barrel, which has a similar menu, but caters more towards the less-foodie tourist and bus tours (i.e. the food is not nearly as good, but there are far more stuffed animals around the restaurant). Other fantastic, though even more expensive options than SRG, include the Westbank Grill at the Four Seasons, the Grill at Amangani, and the Wild Sage at the Rusty Parrot Lodge.
    Other great restaurants, that don't fit your local cuisine preference: Osteria, Koshu, Blu Kitchen, Sudachi.
    And for more casual and/or lunch places: Betty Rock Cafe, Pica's, Teton Thai, Backcountry Provisions Deli.

    Have a great trip!

      Thanks for all of that info, I had heard about the SRG so that's good that I have another recommendation for it.

      I'm not looking for any one certain price range, we will be on our trip for 2 weeks and will try all sorts of places but probably from $-$$$, lunch, dinner, coffee, bakeries, and bars. I have heard good things about the local beers, which I'm excited about! So if anyone has any recommendations on pubs or bars that would help too.

      There will be four of us ages 6-38. My sister and her husband would probably like some more fine dining, romantic atmosphere options just for the two of them to have dinner together a few nights while I babysit.
