2 Best Restaurants in Atlantic City, Jackson Hole and Northwest Wyoming

Atlantic City Mercantile


The town's oldest saloon, known as the "Merc," serves refreshments in a room that has seen its share of gold miners, perhaps an outlaw or two, and certainly some ruffians. When you step through the doors of this 1893 building with tin ceilings, a massive back bar, and an assortment of mismatched oak tables and chairs, you may feel as though you've walked directly into an episode of Gunsmoke. At times a honky-tonk piano player is on hand. The menu includes steak, chicken, and seafood, plus sandwiches and big burgers.

Miner's Grub Stake


Drop in for pancakes, French toast, omelets, and coffee for breakfast; or a buffalo burger, tuna salad, or Reuben sandwich for lunch. You can also warm your bones with beef vegetable soup, chili, and hot cider before stocking up on paper goods, groceries, sunscreen, soft drinks, two-cycle motor oil, pet food, and other supplies. Daily specials include meat loaf on Friday—a locals' favorite. Service ends at 7 pm so as not to compete with the neighboring Mercantile.
