    Snake River Grill is a gourmet delight. The food was cooked to order, superior quality, and the menu provided excellent choices. The decor was warm and inviting yet chic and comfortable. Our waiter was the best, providing us with choices and suggestions. He was gracious and pleasant and attentive. We will be back.

    As a tourist from Japan, we were looking to find a great dinner on our last day of our trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. We found it at this place! The ambiance, service, and food were all great. After reading the reviews, I was a bit worried about the service but our waitress was fantastic! We will definitely go back to Snake River Grill the next time we are in town.

    The steaks at Snake River Grill certainly lived up to the hype -- perfectly cooked to the requested temperature and so tender and delicious. We were a little disappointed with the famous potato pancake and tuna tartare appetizers, though. The potato pancake was tasty but a little dense and a little too greasy. That appetizer can easily be shared by 4 or more people. The tuna tartare could have used more acid. We were very disappointed in service. Our waitress was attentive but she was so cold and formal that she bordered on being rude. I don't think she smiled the entire night and it made us wonder if we had done something to annoy her.

    We chose to dine at the Snake Grill because of the incredible review, but were very disappointed. Many of the review said this place was fit for foodies and that is pretty far off. This is your basic boring steakhouse. The food concepts and decor feel like you have just boarded a time machine back to early 90's. Our waiter was not very impressive and we definitely will not be back to dine here. My husband had a steak which he said was tasty and I had the Sea Bass which was incredibly bitter. Overall food presentation was exactly the way I would describe this place..... average and boring.

    We picked Snake River Grille for my moms 65 th birthday dinner while on a weekend trip to Jackson. The food was outstanding, service superb. They have a few kids items (noodles, cheese pizza) not listed on the menu. This is not a place for kids, but our 9 and 6 year olds, who eat out often, did fine and loved the elk chops. It's not cheap but delivers for a special occasion.

    We were immediately seated at our time of reservation. Our waitress was friendly but not overbearing. Drinks were served swiftly, the liquor was apparent so no skimping involved. The sweet potato soup was delicious, but the potato pancake was out of this world. Slimly slice salmon topped the potato. Yum. Our entrees followed. The trout was melt in your mouth! We loved the restaurant!

    Celebrated our 10th anniversary at The Grill. I have been coming here since 1997, and NEVER have I had a bad meal. Extremely consistent, the valley's best wine list, excellent service staff, and attention to detail are the hallmarks of SRG. We brought in a bottle of '99 Chapoutier Le Pavillon, which traveled from Tain l'Ermitage (Chapoutier's tasting room) in a backpack when we were first married. There's no other place in Jackson I would have even considered opening such a treasure, especially on such a momentous occasion. A perfect night all around.

    Everything is top notch at SRG- the ambiance is upscale but western, the service is attentive without being intrusive. We never have to ask for anything - it just appears; pacing of the courses is just right and the food is wonderful. Definitely make reservations because this place is popular and for good reason.

    Snake River Grill is usually reliable...however, this evening the entire experience was underwhelming. We waited too long for every aspect of the table service, from the wine presentation (we poured our own refills), to the food presentation, to dessert, to the presentation of the Bill. The food was really just not very good...I had the Elk chop which was very tough and not very tasty and my friend had the pork shank which was dry. All in all, disappointing and certainly not worth the expense.

    We enjoyed our second meal at SRG and as the first it was great. We went early and it was packed and energetic. Food was excellen as before. I had the pork shank that is one of their specialties which was excellent but enough for two people easily. Service was outstanding with a veteran waiter that knew everyhthing about the menu, was attentive and timely. Overall, an excellent evening.

    Four of us dined and had appetizers to share and an entree each. The fig and green chile appetizers were inhaled; entrees all great and I did chew the meat off the bone of my elk chop. The dessert was over the top--the warm chocolate crepe with huckleberry, my choice, was the perfect end of a great meal. My friends couldn't finish the donuts; I had them slightly warmed for breakfast. We ate in seven Jackson area restaurants; we would return to three and Snake River Grill is one of the three.

    Food was great, service was terrific, we requested a special desert, which was served with each of the birthday celebrators - 3 -having happy birthday written on it. But we asked the check be split half and half, they charged one person 1.5 times the total bill, and the other was charged correctly. The popularity of the place esp on the weekend makes reservations a must, the menu was a little limited, was disappointed there was no bison on menu, when they have it it's great.

    Our local favorite for many years in Jackson. Always friendly and welcoming, with creative and inventive offerings. I almost always select the elk (which is my favorite local specialty) and get to sample friends other choices which are off the charts as well. Don't miss the truffle fries. SRG is the best!

    Four of us went to SRG for my husband's 70th birthday-I'd mentioned that fact when I made reservations, but wasn't sure they'd remember as I'd made reservations a month earlier. When we arrived, we had a great table/location. 2 ordered Crispy Pork Shanks which was FABULOUS. The presentation was excellent for all meals. Another ordered the smoked trout and loved it, but it was a small portion. I had the $59 Elk chops. I was disappointed, but that's probably due to my inexperience with elk (1st time). Cooked to perfection (rare/med. rare). I found it a bit tasteless and chewy. I was expecting a bit of gamely taste, which I like. The dessert we ordered had "Happy 70th" written in chocolate around the plate. All-in-all, a great experience.

    Another great visit to Jackson for the art auction. Our trip wouldn't be complete without a meal at Snake River Grill. Its an incredibly busy weekend during the auction but the staff at Snake River Grill knows how to make you feel welcomed and are always very attentive. The food is always delicious you must try the onion rings. The Pork Shank was very tender. But leave room for the peach pie.

    Beautiful restaurant, excellent food. The overall experience however was tempered by our totally bored, uninterested, and basically rude server. An evening out should be a complete experience, not just how good is the food or how agreeable is the atmosphere. By political correctness I left a small monetary tip. The tip that I should have left was for our server to get a better attitude or to get work in a different industry.Having said that the onion rings were suburb and the dessert donuts were exceptional and should be a year around offering and not just a seasonal dish.
