Whether you are staying in the town of Jackson or in Teton Village, the mountain resort, there are several dining options where you can enjoy great Wyoming cuisine and a great Wyoming atmosphere. Wyoming cuisine is big on wild game, which means you will find a lot of elk, bison and deer on the menu.
Gun Barrel Restaurant
If game is what you seek, The Gun Barrel Restaurant is probably the best fine dining option in town. The food is wonderful, and the atmosphere screams Wyoming. It is a family friendly restaurant but it is on the pricier side. An average entree is about $30 a person.
The Silver Dollar Bar and Grill
The Silver Dollar Bar and Grill is a must visit! It is located inside The Wort Hotel and offers a great atmosphere for people of all ages. In the grill there are large windows and outdoor seating for great people watching in the summer. In the showroom or bar area, there is live music several days of the week. Be sure to check out the bar top while you’re there. It is covered in old silver dollars, giving the restaurant it’s name.
The Mangy Moose
We love the The Mangy Moose and visit every time we go to Jackson. It is located in Teton Village and is a popular place to grab a quick beer after a day on the slopes. There is usually live music in the saloon section, which is non-smoking and kid friendly until 10 p.m. There is also a quieter restaurant side completely separated from the saloon. The restaurant offers more variety in their menu, which is moderately priced. The restaurant itself is filled with vintage decor that is super cool.
Snake River Brewery
If you are a craft beer lover, you will love the Snake River Brewery. It is located within walking distance to downtown Jackson, but is a few blocks away from the town square. They have a wide variety of great craft beers made right there in Jackson. We ordered pizza, which was surprisingly good. There is a bar section for those who are 21 and up and a restaurant side which is family friendly. They were very accommodating to our little family, even sitting us in an empty section of the restaurant where our toddler could have free reign without bothering other diners.
