    Wow. Great breakfast and lunch (up until mid afternoon) place tucked in local airport. Fantastic food - fries in dedicated fryer, wings in same. My husband cried to have gluten free fish and chips. Caught owner at end of day and he’s a delight and cares about the great food. If I couldn’t find lodging in Yellowstone (or even if I could) I would stay in. West Yellowstone simply to eat safely for many meals (we spent many days of our trip sick... :(). This place rocks!

    We were very fortunate to return to Smokejumpers and bring our entire family for a 50th Anniversary celebration meal while we spent a week in Yellowstone National Park. Six of our party of thirteen must eat gluten free so everyone was glad to see the "Welcome to Gluten-freedom" sign as we entered. A number of our grandchildren have various combinations of food allergies that present a challenge to any dining establishment's kitchen. James, owner and chef, prepares just about every dish from scratch so he is able to adjust his recipes to meet the needs of each individual. It is so refreshing to sit back and relax and know with confidence that James will produce dish that will be very tasty and not result in a grandchild becoming ill! If you come for breakfast or brunch, be sure to try the GF pancakes or waffles. Then you may want to come back for his outstanding "Fish & Chips". For real treat try the Lobster Bisque; it is excellent! The meal we enjoyed here was absolutely the best one of the entire week! I am sure your experience may be the same.

    Thank you so much for creating a safe gluten free eating environment! Eating out is always a risk with limited options and you created the safety and had options that I have never found anywhere else! The food was so tasty and filling and I loved the dedication and creativity in creating amazing recipes! I will make this my go to everytime I am in the area. The owner understands first hand the gluten allergies so he has created a dedicated gluten free kitchen and he creates recipes and sauces from scratch!

    Had both an early dinner and breakfast here. All of the food we ordered was good and our son who has Celiac enjoyed his buffalo wings, fish and chips and a shake. We originally thought it was a little strange that this cafe was located at the Yellowstone airport but after our two visits we would highly recommend it for anyone regardless if you have Celiac's or not.

    I've never gone to an airport just to eat at a restaurant, but I'm glad I did this time! Good, friendly service and virtually anything on the menu is GF (or can be customized) including all the waffles, pancakes, toast, hollandaise sauce, etc. Was fairly busy and understaffed but they managed well. Make sure you have time to spare and aren't rushing, and enjoy the wonderful options!

    We were surprised that a dedicated GlutenFree restaurant would be at the Yellowstone airport, but decided to try it for lunch. Knowing that a kitchen has dedicated space and skills for GF prep makes for a much more relaxed eating experience. Fish and chips were delicious. Highly recommended.

    First, let me say this is the restaurant for the Yellowstone airport. That helps to find it. Next, I want to say I love this place. They not only get it but they can make almost everything on their menu gluten free. And they are happy to tell you in detail how they do it. I had gf beer-battered, fried cod and delicious fries, tarter sauce and a lemon slice and almost cried , it was so good. My tummy felt happy all day afterwards. Wish I could eat there regularly.

    This place is amazing! I have a digestive disease (not celiac) that causes me to have a lot of food allergies, one of which is gluten. The staff was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. I got the gluten free fish and chips. They were the best I have ever had, and I didn't have a problem! It's a bit off the beaten path, but totally worth it.

    Who gets to eat GF waffles away from home? Well this is the place. The owner's (cook) girlfriend has Celiac so he knows what he is going. Absolutely delicious light and crispy. Fabulous menu. Too bad they are only open for breakfast and lunch or we would have been back for dinner

    I came here in my last day in Yellowstone and it was quite the finale to the trip! They have the basic pancakes, waffles, toast and eggs line up, but everything was done very well!! I got the waffle and my sister got the double triple (2 eggs, 2 very large pancakes, 2 pieces of toast and 2 pieces of meat) it was very affordable for the amount of food we were given! My mom got the eggs Benedict and she loved it and said it was some of the best eggs Benedict she'd ever had!! I would definitely come again and the food came very quickly🙂😑

    Everything we ate was yummy. My whole family loved it. I particularly recommend the fish and chips. Be prepared that although the app gives it one $, the food was more expensive than I expected. But, for just outside of Yellowstone, maybe it's a fair price. I haven't been to other restaurants in the area to compare prices.

    Brought my family here for both dinner and breakfast...my fam has a lot of allergies, Gluten being the primary...the cook and waitresses were very knowledgeable, very accommodating and very very nice. Would definitely recommend it. One note, it is attached to the airport...I thought the map app was steering me wrong, but it wasn't. Despite the fact it is attached to an airport, it doesn't feel like it and the ambiance is nice.

    Love this little place, located at the airport. One of the staff members is actually celiac as well and has worked to create this little gf heaven. I tried the fish and chips as I haven't had a good fried fish since finding I was celiac. Wow! Oh wow! The batter was light and cooked perfectly and just tasted marvelous. The fries are fresh cut there and tasted great too. Love, love. This is way away from where I live, but I need to find out how to come back this way soon.

    Delicious food! The owner was very knowledgable and checked in with us multiple times. I am an extremely sensitive celiac and 2 of my family members are also celiac and we didn't have a problem there at all!! The restaurant is located in an odd location in west Yellowstone (at the airport) but it's definitely worth going to even if you didn't fly in!

    Owner/Chef James was extremely knowledgeable, came out to our table numerous times to check on us. We had the rib eye steak & Fish n Chips.....they were both excellent!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone with gluten intolerance/ Celiac!! And despite other patrons comments about it not being a kid friendly establishment, I strongly disagree, we had a 9 & 4 yr. old with no problems!! Very Family Friendly!!

    Located at the tiny West Yellowstone airport. The owner/chef's girlfriend has celiac disease and multiple food allergies/intolerances, so he knows his stuff when it comes to cross contamination and modifying foods. He has a dedicated GF waffle iron and grill. He made a GF pancake for my daughter that had ears, chocolate chip eyes, and an orange wedge mouth :) The non-GF food was very good. One caution for those with young kids, the chef is a nice guy, but doesn't seem to enjoy kids or be very understanding/okay with the natural chaos that comes with the territory if young kids. He didn't say anything to us, but how he felt about our rowdy 2 and 4 year old was sometimes visible on his face (had been in a car for a few hrs before we stopped to eat here). Particularily when my 4 year old decided to smear rain water on the outside of his glass window. Totally not cool that my kid did that, but any parent or person who gets kids would kind of roll with it and probably laugh it off. The look on this guy's face was mixture if disgust and disbelief, kind of how you might react if you were witnessing a teenager doing the same thing. Needless to say, I had my son wipe the window down and apologize. Anyway, it is totally this guy's right to not be a kid-person, but just thought I would warn those traveling with kids. The food is great, and the way the chef accommodates people who are GF or have other food allergies is great and so appreciated.

    James is a great host and chef. Great knowledge on GF requirements. He has worked to make his GF options taste great also. You need to go on Fridays for the fish fry. Just don't tell your non-GF friends that it is all GF.
