Best Place for Walleye. I am not sure what these couple of reviews were used to. I really enjoyed the Walleye. Great food and great service. This location is always filled with customers so that would be an indication of how good the food and service is. If ever you doubt, try to get a seat durning lunch time. By the way the fries are really good too.
We were a party of 8 adults and three (well behaved) children so our selections covered most of the cafe's menu. The "world record" was over cooked and served 'naked'. Saving money by not offering the usual garnish? Bad idea. The Yellowstone burger was just a burger. I had a nondescript rendition of a standard burger. Nothing to write home about. My brother-in-law had the so-called "Yellowstone Walleye" he felt it was actually Walleye but I know for a fact that it wasn't from Yellowstone as there are NO Walleye in the park, period. I was surprised that the Yellowstone Cafe didn't have Bison on the menu, even as a burger (our waitress didn't even know what a 'Bison burger' was!) there was another item which certainly could be offered which was notable by it's absence. Trout. Really! With all the fishing oriented decor you'd think trout would be a special if not a feature. Trout, after all, is what Yellowstone, the park and the river, are best known for as far as fishing is concerned. Slough Creek is a world famous fly fishing venue in YNP. Speaking of decor, there were only a few images and items that I associate with YNP. Of course I am biased, I have worked in Yellowstone and traveled extensively in the park and the surrounding ecosystem.
If the Yellowstone Cafe were mine, I'd at least change the menu to include Bison and Trout, forget the Walleye, perhaps even add Elk.
I suspect that the owners just wanted a cool name and I also suspect that they have never been to YNP or if they have, they saw it from a tour bus window.
Must have the walleye and Green Goddess dressing. As I am eating my leftover walleye, this is a place you must go. It has a "Cheers" atmosphere, probably filled with a bunch of locals. The walleye special was spectacular. Nearly as good as our shore lunches. $16.95 got you a salad, (house dressing = green goddess, "very nice") and baked potato. The service was fast and friendly. There were 11 of us there celebrating our walleye and pike fishing trip to Northern Canada last summer. We were able to make a reservation and were seated upon our arrival. Everyone was very pleased with there dinner. My wife had the baked grouper. She is quite picky and said it was very good. I will definitely return. November 7, 2008
fake food. The "Walleye" that they are so famous for is fake. It is actually a cheap substitute. The fish that they use for the "Walleye" and the "Grouper" is actually the same cheap fish that isn't really either or! But hey don't that stop you from paying $10 dollars for the sandwich or $20 for the dinner that probably costs $1 per fillet. I think its pretty low making your employees lie to the customers that they serve.
