Created on: 2021-07-07

Our Favorite Dining Destinations for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Sure, Jackson Hole is known for skiing and snowboarding in the winter, hiking and hunting in the summer, but a favorite year-round sport in our town is eating. As the restaurants and watering holes are now open again, we want to share our favorite places to eat near the hotel.

Breakfast

If you are visiting Jackson, chances are you are planning a few adventures. Whether it is a day of shopping or skiing, you will need to fill up on a good breakfast to start the fun and endure the exploration. We have a wonderful complimentary daily breakfast buffet, but we won’t get mad if you branch out a few days for breakfast. 

Persephone Bakery

Known for great coffee, artisanal breads and pastries, Persephone has two locations in town and is frequented by locals and tourists alike. They are very busy for breakfast, especially on weekends, so don’t forget to get there early or even call ahead to make reservations.

Cafe Genevieve Restaurant

Less than a block from Jackson’s Town Square, Cafe Genevieve serves up home cooked classics in a historic log cabin. The Southern-inspired menu includes fried chicken and waffles, biscuits with Cajun gravy, and much more. Even if you sleep in one morning you can still catch brunch because it is served everyday (yes, that’s right) until 3 pm.

Dornan’s Chuckwagon

If you’re in a hurry to get to Grand Teton or Yellowstone National Parks, you can always stop by Dornan’s Chuckwagon, just outside of Jackson in Moose, Wyoming. Check out their cowboy-sized breakfast menu which includes delicious all-you-can-eat sourdough pancakes made from scratch. On top of that, the view of Grand Teton and the rest of the mountain range makes this a beautiful breakfast location.

Lunch

After a morning hike, give your body what it needs or simply break up the day with a tasty snack from one of our superb local lunch spots. Sidenote: if you will be adventuring all day, we also provide Box Lunches to take with you on your adventures or to picnic in the parks. All you have to do is order at our front desk the day before. 

Pinky G’s

Often voted the best pizza in Jackson, this joint has been featured on the popular Food Network show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. With funky decor and delicious food, Pinky G’s is open most nights till past midnight and on weeknights it has live music.

Local

A popular place for lunch, most would agree that Local has Jackson’s best customizable burgers (you can even add foie gras). You can’t swing through town without making a pitstop and giving this place a try.

Snake River Brew Pub

Since 1994, Snake River Brewing has been the original brewpub of Jackson. Known for crafting a wide range of beers, it also has a menu full of delicious, locally-sourced, fresh-made food. Items run the gamut from sandwiches to wood-fired pizzas to pastas and a wonderful kids’ menu.

Dinner

After an adventurous day, refuel at one of Jackson Hole’s top dinner destinations, because our small mountain town has no shortage of world-class restaurants for every budget. Our Fireside Lounge serves up some good grub as well, but here are some other dinner recommendations to explore throughout your stay. 

The Kitchen

A celebrated venue in Jackson, The Kitchen is not only known for the fantastic food and atmospheric dining experience, but also for its beautiful architecture and design. a favorite Jackson Hole restaurant, The Kitchen serves modern American cuisine with a comforting twist.

Snake River Grill

Beloved by locals for more than 25 years, Snake River Grill is an excellent dinner spot, but if you’re planning on stopping in for a meal, be sure to make your reservation in advance, because it gets busy (but it is worth the effort). 

Jackson Drug

Jackson Hole’s drug store and original soda fountain on Town Square is a century-old, historic landmark and eatery that visitors will cherish. Chicken steak, homemade meatloaf and Idaho trout are some of the items you can choose to fill up your belly. Save room for ice cream, too, because Jackson Drug has a pretty sweet selection.
