Where to Eat in Cody: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Malia Yoakum

Cody, named for its legendary founder, Buffalo Bill Cody, remains as full of Old West adventure as it was during the days when Bill himself roamed Wyoming. Serving as the Eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park, Cody is just a few miles away from pristine wilderness where actual buffalo can still be seen. The town attracts tourists and cowboys alike with reenactments of famous shoot-outs, restored frontier buildings and with the Cody Stampede, which the town hosts every July 4.

Hidden on a side street, this little eatery is open for lunch only M-F. It has limited menu items but they are tasty. Pies, cakes and pastries are really made from scratch. Mmmm!

Rawhide Coffee

Reviewed By cleichhorn - Charleston, South Carolina

We are always seeking a good espresso drinks when traveling, and Rawhide Coffee turned out to be a real gem! Awesome espresso with a bazillion flavors, including a lot of sugar free flavors for lattes...puts Starbucks to shame. Delicious baked goods, and it looked like they had bagels and some sandwiches also. We had a piece of apple cranberry pie, cut right from the pie in front of us...ah-mazing. Warm and cozy on a very cold day. Lots of comfortable nooks to sit and use free wifi. Super nice people - lots of locals there. I saw a "one" rating from another rater - don't see how that's possible. Not sure of the hours, but if you love coffee like we do, go to Rawhide Coffee in Cody :)

Reviewed By Angus E - Boulder, Colorado

We took a chance on theThe Local, based on other reviews here. We were not disappointed. Given that the weather was heinous, I wouldn't have blamed them for closing, but they brought their game--no, really, elk and bison meatloaf. It rocked. Their special cocktail creations were rockin' as well. It's nice to have some choices in Cody that aren't fronts for the Wyoming Stockgrower's Association. Two thumbs up for The Local!

We had lunch here last month and ordered a roast beef with french onions sandwich and a half of a Turkey pesto panini. Both sandwiches were very good. I wish I would have ordered the full size panini. Service was quick for our sandwiches but a little slow when we ordered dessert. Great place and great atmosphere. We would definitely stop in again when in the area.

Dairy Queen

Reviewed By Robert V - Ave Maria, Florida

After a one block walk to dinner, we were happy to stop right next door to our motel after dinner where this DQ is located, right on the main thorough fare to Yellowstone from Cody, WY! The usual DQ products are offered, which all suit us just fine. The place was very busy on the warm, peak season. Next door in the local park people were eating their sundays and other DQ products on tables and chairs, just to eat outside.

Our Place

Reviewed By Pat P - Springfield, Missouri

We noticed the number of locals eating breakfast at Our Place across the street from Cowboy Village and I can see why. The breakfast was excellent, filling and complete. Service was good and the bacon, eggs and hash browns were very satisfying. You have just got to love local Diners! Remember to take cash, they do not accept any type of credit or debit card.

Rocky Mountain Mojoe

Home made baked goods, out of this world coffee and specialty drinks. Breakfast is served from 7am-12pm and everything is made from scratch. Lunch/Dinner offerings include fabulous salads, soup, chili, gourmet sandwiches, panini's, burgers and chili dogs. Drop in, you will be greeted with fantastic service and delicious food made fresh when you order. We are not a fast food establishment but we aim to make home styled, whole food for you to enjoy.

I'd heard about this place and it didn't meet my expectations. Staff were friendly and the service was good, but the restaurant needs a good cleaning and the food we had wasn't all that great. My husband ordered the biscuit and gravy. This place wraps it in a tortilla and placed about 2 tablespoons of gravy on it. As far as I'm concerned, that's just plain wrong. Good grief, tortillas and biscuit and gravy just shouldn't be served together. Sad. My breakfast was ok. Regular old eggs, bacon, hash browns and biscuit. Way too many potatoes. The biscuit was toasted. That's just plain wrong too. But, the jam that came was terrific. Oh, the coffee was awful- I like strong coffee but this stuff was way too strong and bitter. Doubt we'll try it again on our return trip.

Had a large veggie burger on a bakery fresh cibatta roll, tasted wonderful. Unfortunately, lunch was pricey as I had too pay extra for a side salad. Several side choices were available with the sandwich but none were lower in calories or healthier choices so I paid the extra couple of dollars for a salad.

Peters Cafe and Bakery

Reviewed By Fetustician - Nashville, Tennessee

Greasy and poor cappuccino! This place has good reviews, but food was not good, cappuccino horrible, not even close, and service was inattentive. We were waiting for coffee and finally they told us to use the dispenser. This was not crowded when we went.
