I'm not going to admit to eating that entire bison burger, giant salad, and perhaps additional fries from my fiancee's plate, but that may have happened one night in Northern Yellowstone...

So I walk up to this place like any cowboy (substitute tourist for the truth) would walk up to The Corral, and I see their menu touts that they had the best Elk Burger in Montana in 2017 according to USA Today. on. Elk Burger ordered. 10 minutes later our table's burgers...2 Bisons and 1 Elk...arrived. 5 minutes later...I can confirm the Elk Burger was incredible. One other note...chicken tenders were also ordered and came with a ranch dip that tastes like it was homemade...really good. This place is like a fancy dive...but it was awesome. I'm glad we stumbled across this place.

I wish there were more stars to give this restaurant. The food was fantastic, best burger I have had in a while. At first you might think is pricey, however, the portions are very generous and taste delicious. The service was OUTSTANDING! We arrived 10 minutes before closing, after a long day at Yellowstone. We had no expectations of sitting down, given the time, and we were prepared not be served bc they were about to close. Well, not only did they prepared delicious burger, fries and drinks, but they invited us to eat there without any rush, and the owner even approached our table to turn on the fire pit at the center. I was so thankful for being so nice and thoughtful. They have a message at the front saying that they care about each of their customers and it is true! Highly recommend this amazing place!

I loved their Huckleberry malt. Quick service despite the crowd. The elk burger was also delicious.

Great spot to have dinner after a long day at Yellowstone. The restaurant has been serving food locally for decades and was recognized in USA Today, I believe. You can have classic in this area Elk or Bison burger or try something else. Food wasn't too expensive and tasted well. It was also prepared quickly. You might see a line of people here and a shortage of parking spots so be prepared! The wooden patio was beautiful in the evening with all the lights!
