6 Best Restaurants in Lander, Jackson Hole and Northwest Wyoming

Cowfish

$$$ Fodor's choice

At this funky restaurant you can dine on a cozy, outdoor patio and select from sandwiches and haute cuisine from both land and water. For starters try pot stickers and seared ahi tuna. Entrées range from 16-ounce rib-eye steaks, fillets, prime rib (served Friday and Saturday only), slow-cooked baby back ribs, and hamburgers made from local beef, to wild Alaskan salmon and beer-battered shrimp. Rounding out the menu are fun twists on standby dishes like fish tacos with chipotle aioli or fillet tips on penne pasta smothered in tequila cream sauce. An on-site microbrewery and an organic garden of fresh vegetables and herbs add a distinctive touch to each meal.
