Dining at Yellowstone Basin Inn

Sabina & Greg love food, plain and simple!

From May to October, we welcome you and look forward to serving you the way we eat at home: local, sustainable, organic, ethical and seasonal Montana grown and produced foods. We care a great deal where our food comes from and how it is produced, and we pride ourselves on serving the best and tastiest we can. (We do not offer breakfast during our Winter season, October 15 - April 30.)

We are proud to offer you a unique Montana food experience, using only the best Mother Nature offers. Our menu changes based on availability through the seasons and we thank you for your understanding.

We take pride in offering as many local, sustainable, organic, ethical and seasonal Montana grown and produced foods as possible. These are some of our vendors:

Market Day Foods and Quality Foods Distributing (Bozeman, Montana) which brings the best in local, sustainably grown and produced foods.

The bison breakfast sausage comes to us from Rancho Picante Montana Bison (Bozeman, Montana) grass fed and grass finished bison where they do not use hormones or antibiotics, practice low-stress livestock handling and sustainable stewardship practices.

The pork and goat cheese come to us from Amaltheia Dairy (Belgrade, Montana).

Some of our lunch meats come from Yellowstone Grassfed Beef: premium quality beef that doesn’t just taste remarkably delicious – it’s produced in an environmentally, economically and culturally sustainable manner.

Complimentary Breakfast Buffet

Enjoy your breakfast with other guests in our Montana Seasons dining room, sun-filled east facing back deck, or on the Inn’s covered porch with spectacular views of Electric Peak and the Yellowstone River.

Our buffet style homemade hot breakfast is served seasonally May through October. In May and October, it is served 7:30am - 9:30am with coffee and tea available at 7:00am. June - September, it is served 7:00am - 9:00am with coffee and tea available at 6:30am. The cereals and drinks are available until 10:00am. If you are not planning on joining us for breakfast, please notify Reception the night before.

A complimentary home-cooked-from-scratch breakfast buffet is served daily. The two hot main dishes alternate daily and vary according to season and availability; we usually have an egg dish and protein or vegetable dish. We have a selection of fresh baked pastries, hot oatmeal, cold cereals, yogurt parfaits, fresh brewed coffee, a collection of teas, juice, or milk.

We may be able to accommodate dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan preferences if you give us 24–48 hours advanced notice.

In the summertime, we offer Lunches to Go for purchase. We have a choice of sandwiches and salads or half of each. The lunch includes a freshly-baked made-from-scratch cookie, choice of potato chips and a bottle of water. We can provide guests with coolers and ice packs upon request.
