Best Restaurants in Jackson Hole: Upscale Rustic Charm with Valley Views and Mountain-inspired Cuisine

Tucked between rugged mountains and well-loved outdoor trails, Jackson Hole welcomes each visitor with genuine rustic charm that couldn’t feel more appropriate anywhere else. As one of North America’s most sought-after winter destinations, the stakes are high and excellence is deeply embedded in the very essence of Jackson Hole. Here mountains are so much more than just a naturally wondrous spectacle – mountain life is a lifestyle. Each of Jackson Hole’s finest restaurants deserves praise for retaining this deeply-embedded passion for mountains and wilderness surrounding the valley with menus featuring some of the best beef and game in the country. Meals here are truly outstanding, complete with picture-perfect mountain and valley views from winter lodge-inspired interiors, made complete with a roaring fireplace in the background.

Jenny Lake Lodge Dining Room

A long-time favorite for Jackson Hole regulars and newcomers alike, Jenny Lake Lodge Dining Room delivers rustic charm combined with unmatched views and stellar personalized service. The rotating five-course prix fixe menu stays true to well-loved classics like steak tartare and seared scallop appetizers and fantastic mains comprised of locally-sourced high-quality sustainable ingredients. The AAA Four-Diamond dining destination offers refined exquisite flavors in a truly authentic Western setting which exudes warmth and comfort from its 1930’s-inspired rustic lodge setting.

Piste Mountain Bistro

Successfully combining traditionally-inspired elements with contemporary modernism in the interiors, Piste Mountain Bistro continues to serve mouthwatering seasonal dishes in the restaurant’s fourth winter season in Jackson Hole. Enjoy a warm and welcoming atmosphere together with sensational views from the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the valley. Perfect for a catch-up lunch with a group of friends, Piste Mountain Bistro is buzzing with life, laughter, and excellent vibes that can only radiate from a place doing everything right – and from cocktails to perfectly-prepared mountain-inspired dishes, they truly know how to do things right. On top of that, the restaurant proudly supports and works together with Vertical Harvest, supporting local food growers, as well as the Lockhart Cattle Company providing only the finest grass-fed beef born, raised, and butchered in Jackson Hole.

Snake River Grill

One of the finest dining establishments in Jackson Hole, Snake River Grill, was opened in 1993 and since then has been one of the leading restaurants in the region. Refined rustic charm and a truly exquisite menu combined with world-class service are at the very core of Snake River Grill. Drawing inspiration from the mountain setting, the restaurant celebrates both New American and world cuisines with a Western twist. Their wild game Korean hot bowl is the perfect example! Steak lovers will thrive here – the menu offers fantastic Colorado lamb and Nebraska wagyu steaks. In the same vein, the North American elk medallions or the cider-glazed crispy pork shank are hearty and warming, exactly what you need after a day on the slopes while sitting by the roaring fire. The wine list features hand-picked selections of the finest North American, South American, and European wines.

Spur Restaurant & Bar

Located at the Teton Lodge & Spa, Spur Restaurant and Bar is led by the award-winning executive chef Kevin Humphreys, who has repeatedly been named the best chef in Jackson Hole. Together with an acclaimed team, he has created a menu featuring exceptional cuisine served in a vibrant rustic-inspired yet modern setting. Sustainable local produce and hand-picked regional ingredients come together to form true wonders in each serving – Idaho buffalo short ribs, porcini-dusted steelhead trout, and braised pork shank are not to be missed. Yet even more unique is their Wagyu beef pot roast. While normally you’d see Wagyu beef steak on most menus, this pot roast is bursting with flavor and the most tender pieces of the world’s best beef are completed with the exquisite flavor of black truffle.

Westbank Grill 

In a true Four Seasons fashion, their in-house steakhouse Westbank Grill follows suit by offering the finest prime cuts and seafood, accompanied by mountain views and a luxury lodge-like space. The luxury feel is complete with a large stone fireplace and wood-paneled ceilings, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
