When it comes to great restaurants in Jackson Hole, one place stands out from the rest: the Snake River Grill. Located in Town Square, this bustling eatery has been a local favorite for over 20 years. Diners will find a menu that features organic produce, prime meats, and fresh seafood as well as over 300 wines and cocktails. Whether it’s dinner in the dining room or drinks at the bar, Snake River Grill offers an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Wild West. Here are some things you should know about the restaurant.
The menu at Snake River Grill showcases fresh, uniquely-crafted New American cuisine. Each season, Executive Chef Jeff Drew creates new dishes that reflect what’s available in the market. He’s even been nominated three times by the James Beard Foundation for Best Chef Northwest.
We recommend starting your meal with an appetizer. Try the signature SRG steak tartare pizza with Black Angus New York strip steak, garlic aioli, capers, parsley, and red onion. Or dig into an order of onion rings. They’re unlike any onion rings you’ve ever tasted and are served in the most memorable way. When it’s time to order your entree, opt for the wild game Korean hot bowl with venison and veggies in a spicy black bean sauce. We also love the brioche crusted Idaho trout. Wash down your meal with a refreshing cocktail or glass of wine and you’ll be ready for dessert! Which brings us to…
Ooey, gooey, and absolutely delicious, the Eskimo Bars at Snake River Grill are reason enough to visit Jackson Hole. (Seriously – this dish was featured on Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate” with Giada De Laurentiis!) Eskimo Bars are frozen chocolate treats that you may remember getting from the ice cream truck as a kid. Snake River Grill amps up this nostalgic dessert by taking homemade brownies and topping them with homemade vanilla ice cream. Then they dip the ice cream/brownie bar into melted dark chocolate, freeze it, and serve it to guests with a side of hot caramel. Yum!
If you’d rather have dinner close to your lodging, you’re in luck! The Bentwood Inn offers fabulous bistro dinners that are always a hit with guests. Just steps from your room, our chef will prepare a gourmet meal with local, organic ingredients influenced by the season. Bistro dinners are served every week and specific nights are determined during a consultation with guests. We also offer informal barbecues as well as nightly hors d’oeuvres. Whether you choose to venture to Snake River Grill or stay right at home with us, we guarantee your trip to Jackson Hole will be one you’ll never forget. We can’t wait to hear all about your culinary adventures!
