Jackson Hole Restaurants

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm headed to Jackson Hole in middle December with a group of 9 (6 adults, 3 juniors) and it's been a lot of years since I've been there. We'll eat in mostly but at least once we'll need to get out and have a dinner. Personally, I'd love an elk tenderloin. I'd appreciate any restaurant recommendations (mid to "top shelf") from the Jackson "informed". Thanks in advance.

From a previous post:

The two restaurants that are best known for game are the Gun Barrel (in town) and the Gamefish in the Snake River Lodge at Teton Village. Game dishes are the primary attraction at each one. I have to honestly admit that I've never eaten at the Gun Barrel, so I can't give you a personal review. I have eaten at Gamefish and liked it very much.

Our two favorite "nice" (that means higher up on the expensive scale) restaurants in Jackson Hole are Stiegler's on the Teton Village road at the JH Racquet Club Resort and the Blue Lion in town. Both have game items on the menu (the Blue Lion often has an outstanding elk dish).

Burke's Chop Shop in town also has great steaks and quite a few game dishes.

The three most expensive restaurants in JH are the Snake River Grill and the Rusty Parrot (both in town) and the West Bank Grill in the Four Seasons at Teton Village. I'm not personally a fan of the Snake River Grill but it gets more out-of-town press than any other restaurant here. We occasionally go to the other two for a special occasion - both are really great restaurants.

If you're looking for a burger, I still believe that Billy's Burgers in the Cadillac Grill (next to the Cowboy Bar on the town square) has some of the best burgers anywhere. I love the burgers there and the place always reminds me of that old "cheesburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger, Pepsi, Pepsi, Pepsi" skit with Ackroyd and Belushi on Saturday Night Live.

And one final thought if you're looking for a happy hour and it's a sunny afternoon. The Granary Bar at the Spring Creek Resort runs a daily drink-and-food special from 5:00 to 7:00pm. It's up on a butte way above the valley floor and the view out of their bar is probably the best view in Jackson Hole. My wife and I go there fairly often, so give that some thought as well.

Thanks, Bob.

Were from the Midwest and this trip will be my first chance to give the i.m 82's I picked up last spring a run. Hopefully a little JH and a little Targhee...

I've been to Gun Barrel 2 times this year (we liked the JH area so much, we came back for summer vacation). Excellent game! Prices in $20s.

I'll add Nani's for great pasta and the Bunnery for coffee and legendary coffee cake in town. The Mangy Moose out at the village is awesome. If you go to Billy's make sure you have a good appitite going cause the burgers are huge. If you don't mind a 10 min drive from town, Horse Creek Station is a fun place to hang out with the locals. Good food, good vibe.

JH's Dec 1st opening might be the earliest in many many years. Bob...is that date really correct? Already snow on the ground which is great news.

Mid December is abit early, hope the snow is soft and deep for ya.

My favourite restaurent in Jackson was 'OYG' also referred to as as 'Old Yellowstone Garage'. Best meal I had when I was in the US, is in the upper price bracket but worth it, for both service and food. I would not go back to Jackson without going there. You definitiely need to book.

I believe they recently closed. Owners are heading to Italy.
