Moo's Gourmet Ice Cream

Reviewed By Julie L - New Orleans, Louisiana

My sister-in-law previously spent 10 summers working in Jackson Hole at Camp Jackson and this was always her favorite spot! We were in Jackson for a ski trip, so of course we had to go to Moos per her request! Despite the active blizzard, their ice cream was wonderful! Their huckleberry ice cream won the top dessert in Wyoming last year per Food Network and I hope you take advantage of trying it when in Jackson! The place was clean and staff was friendly!

Cowboy Coffee Co.

Reviewed By CDog007 - Dallas, Texas

Local establishment close to the square. Friendly, laid back vibe makes a great place to take a break and enjoy your choice of coffees. Some intriguing local versions of your typical coffee house offerings. Mine wasn't great, but the overall experience was worth the visit. Some cool merchandise is available also.

Bin 22

Bin22 in Jackson Hole reflects the sophisticated energy of New York City and the rustic elegance of the Italian countryside, all in a quaint space in the heart of Jackson. This cozy downtown addition flaunts a diverse selection of great value wines, craft beers and regional spirits unparalleled by any shop in the Valley. Adjacent to the libations lies a small grocer featuring homemade pastas, pizza dough, cheeses, salumi, ice cream and more. Venture beyond the specialty grocer and bottle shop to the intimate wine bar area and outdoor deck, open for lunch and dinner daily. Order from the extensive wine, beer and cocktail menu while enjoying Spanish and Italian style tapas and delectable desserts. Belly up to one of the community tables and get lost amidst the rustic wood surroundings or stop for a quick visit with the cheese monger pulling fresh mozzarella at the open kitchen window. Sip Wyoming Whiskey from the state's first legal distillery, poured straight from the cask behind the marble bar. An experience for the senses, Bin22 offers a contemporary take on an old world culinary experience.

Great decor, fantastic dishes, smallish but interesting wine selection. I’ll give it 5 stars for the food and wine. But the service really only deserves 3 - sporty availability, poor timing on the plates, and servers talking loudly about nonsense. Still worth a visit.

The taxi driver who took us to our hotel from the Jackson Hole airport explained how special the burgers were, so we went there for dinner the first night. They were incredibly busy, but the staff were friendly and gracious. We started sitting at the bar and moved to a table when one opened up.

My husband wasn’t hungry, but I was, so I reluctantly agreed to share a burger with him after seeing that they were 8 ounces with a huge mound of fries. The taxi driver suggested asking for a mix of potatoes and sweet potatoes. Both were excellent, but we loved the sweet potatoes more. The burger was incredibly good. We asked if they were open the next day, Wednesday, for lunch, because we were joining a winter tour of Yellowstone and had a 6 PM meeting. Unfortunately, they are only open on weekends in winter.

The next day for lunch I tried the steak burger at Local. It was very disappointing in comparison to MacPhail’s, so we returned to MacPhail’s after our tour meeting and were greeted like old friends. Even the guy who grinds the beef came out to talk to us. We ordered the burger with sweet potato fries and walked the 0.8 miles back to our hotel happy to have gotten more of the outstanding burger and fries. Don’t miss it!

Persephone Bakery

Inspired by bakeries in France and beyond, Persephone Bakery Boulangerie and Cafe remains rooted in Wyoming, a local orientation expressed in our breakfast and lunch menus&apos; focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients. The cafe carries a core collection of classic artisanal breads as well as a spectrum of sweets, from French croissants and kouign amann to macarons and tarts. To complement our creations, Persephone proudly carries Chicago-based artisanal roaster Intelligentsia Coffee. Housemade flavor syrups and European hot chocolate round out the barista bounty.

I absolutely love macaroons and the Persephone Bakery was able to provide the perfect combination of taste, texture and artistic design with each macaroon! They had them decorated for Valentine's Day and absolutely delightful! The other baked goods were also fabulous- I have celiac and they had a citrus cake for me and a variety of other non-GF options for my family members! We frequently travel to Jackson Hole and this will be a new tradition each time we go!

Wild Sage

Reviewed By Lynne L - Los Angeles, California

The passion of Wild Sage's chef and his staff are obvious everywhere at this cozy-elegant restaurant, a perfect place for special occasions but not to be missed during a visit to Jackson. The menu is fairly short, offering starter plates and between five and seven entrees, depending on what is freshly available (elk? bison? white asparagus? fresh-caught Alaskan cod)? Impeccable service, a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, and exquisite food make reservations a must; if you are a guest at the Rusty Parrot (or even if you are not), breakfast at Wild Sage is also a great option (my most memorable breakfast was a fabulous omelet made from fresh greens and delicate white asparagus; my husband enjoyed the Grand Marnier French toast with a lovely huckleberry compote. The best!

Blue Lion

The Blue Lion was built as a residential home in the late 1930&apos;s, in 1974 it became The Tourist Trap restaurant and then in 1976 The Blue Lion. I bought it in 1978 after graduating college. The Blue Lion has evolved a lot since the early days. We continue to add and change dishes semi-annually. The lamb, elk and fresh fish are our biggest sellers. There was a restaurant in southern California where I grew up that served mud pie and my mother made a home made hot fudge sauce which we incorporated into our own version of mud pie, a local favorite. The restaurant has been enlarged several times, the upstairs dining, the kitchen, the waiting area and the outdoor deck. In the winter The Blue Lion can accommodate 60 diners at one time. In the summer we open the deck enabling us to accommodate 80 diner. We are open nightly at 5:30 and usually feature an acoustical guitarist as entertainment.

Reviewed By Julie L - New Orleans, Louisiana

The Blue Lion was one of my earliest memories of a "fancy" restaurant over 25+ years ago. I've been to the Blue Lion almost a dozen times and it is consistently excellent! The space is cozy and intimate with an ever changing menu featuring local flavor combinations such as huckleberry elk tenderloin, buffalo ravioli, lamb, fresh seafood, etc... I have celiac and they're more than willing to help accommodate me with a gluten-free meal. Always a friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. I've recommended this to many other friends when in Jackson and they have agreed it is a wonderful experience and their new favorite restaurant in Jackson. If you're going during the busy summer season, get reservations early!

The burgers were very good - however what was most memorable were the shakes! The vanilla custard they use to make them was by far some of the best I've ever had. I really enjoyed the simple vanilla and went back the next day to just get one!

A local took us to the Snake River Grill for dinner. The caesar salad was memorable as the sauce was not too thick yet it was very flavorful. The tuna with boo chop was also great and the marshmallow dessert was small but packed a heavy and delicious punch. My martini was once of the best i have had, and the server was attentive and friendly.
