10 Best Restaurants in Jackson Hole

Nestled amidst natural grandeur in the shadow of the Teton Mountains, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is widely known as a place for nature lovers and outdoor adventurers. It's a place where the air is fresher, the lifestyle more laid back, and the history and culture as rich and wild as the scenic landscapes.

But take a closer look, and you quickly realize that the valley's culinary prowess is equally impressive. Whether grabbing breakfast before heading out to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort or taking in a lunch or dinner after coming off the mountain, there's no shortage of exceptional establishments to quell your appetite, whatever cuisine it may be craving.

Indeed, whether you own a home in the valley or visit as much as you can, one of the great perks of Jackson is the superb restaurants, cafes, and bars that stretch from Jackson to Teton Village to Wilson and back again. Fine dining, quick eats, coffee shops, and bakeries—you're never left wanting for something delicious and deeply satisfying.

Of course, even with the impressive roster of eateries, a handful of culinary choices rise above the rest. These are the new trendsetters and revered favorites—the eateries that earn the most acclaim and favor amongst residents and visitors as the 10 best restaurants in Jackson Hole.
