Expensive for brief sleigh ride and mediocre food . Cool setting and enjoyed cowboy songs
Very nice. Second time on the sleigh ride. Just runs a little late as does not leave until 7 pm.
We absolutely loved everything about this nighttime sleighride dinner. Tucked in the middle of the woods, driven by a horse drawn sleigh to a quaint cozy cabin for a fantastic prime rib dinner. I cant say enough great thinga about the whole night, the staff, the ambiance...it was exactly what i had hoped for!
Awesome experience! The food and entertainment was outstanding. Definitely worth it to get to the saloon early to check in if you're not staying at Lone Mountain, as the check in can get a little hectic but the bar is awesome with a great outdoor area as well with a fireplace.
This was our 2nd time to enjoy this authentic sleigh ride & dinner. A definite treat.
I wish I could say that I enjoyed this meal as much as I have in the past, but it just isn't so. When we first arrived to the cabin there were not enough seats at our assigned table. The staff had to look at our card, and then agreed that we were at the right table and that there were not enough chairs or place settings. Once this was resolved, we were seated and the serving began. We first received a potato and leek soup, which was delicious, but the portions were not properly controlled. Two of the people in our party had a normal portion, while two others barely had two or three spoonfuls. Next, the vegetables and potatoes were served. The mashed potatoes were so salty that they were not good. The vegetables were just okay. The meat didn't arrive for another 15 minutes or more. I think most people prefer to eat the meat and vegetables at the same time. Some of the meat was very tough and not very tasty. The entertainment was good, as was the sleigh ride, but for the money, the meal was not good. If you want wine with your meal you have to purchase it at their saloon and pay nearly twice the price for it. This was our fourth time to do the dinner sleigh ride. The first two experiences were fantastic. Last year I noticed that it wasn't as good, but this year the experience just isn't worth the price anymore. Unfortunately, this will be our last trip to the Lone Mountain Dinner Sleigh Ride.
Best sleigh ride dinner in the area! Loved our evening. The prime rib was perfection as was guitarist Bruce.
This was our 2nd opportunity to enjoy this dining experience. It was so delicious. We will definitely do it again. However, it would be nice to know how much it costs before you get there. There is a big difference between $50+ and $135, which is what it was.
Great food, lovely experience! Most cooperative with food allergies. Very enjoyable!
Our family has been taking this sleigh ride to dinner in the cabin for about 20 years. It is always magical. We were quite impressed this year how well we were accommodated for those in our group with food allergies. It is quite difficult to make reservations, however, either directly at Lone Mountain Ranch or via Open Table. Also, Open Table gives you options for dinner times, but there is only one seating per night! Be advised if you want wine, you must purchase it at the bar up the hill from the check-in cabin. The food is steak, potatoes and veggies (so let them know if you are a vegetarian, etc.), and the ambiance is spectacular, especially entertainer Bruce with his authentic cowboy songs and stories. Dress warmly for the 15-minute sleigh ride up to the cabin, which is heated by a stove (so dress in layers) and lighted by lanterns. There is no restroom in the cabin, just an outhouse. The dining is family-style, so you’ll have a chance to get to know others at your table. This is always a special night that our family looks forward to. It is a true Montana experience!
Our first time in Montana and wanted to experience local gems, this was one. It is $$, but the food is plenty, the sleigh ride a sweet experience pulled by draft horses, guided by a cowboy, wrapped in blankets with the people you care for under the stars. Dinner served in a remote cabin with a local musician singing cowboy songs and poems under candle light. Can't put a price on it. My only wish is that the sleigh ride was longer...the actual ride is only 15 -20minutes to the cabin and another 15-20 back. Show up to Lone Mountain Ranch earlier for the mingling around the fire/saloon. Thanks LMR
Once again, another great dinner, with new friends that live locally in West Yellowstone and have for over 30+ years never been to this type of event. So it was nice to be able to treat them to a nice event, lots of ambiance, a friendly group and of course served and hosted by great staff from Lone Mountain Ranch!
Very highly recommended!
Excellent as usual. Wish it were easier to get reservations but that’s why it’s so fun. My only criticism is the singer in the bar was was excellent with a great voice made the bar cramped. Don’t know how that can be fixed .
This is an absolute must for anyone wanting a Montana Mountain dining experience.
I have gone on this sleigh ride for over 20 years... it is always such a thrill, but I have to say the food this time was very disappointing. usually one can't get enough of it all, but even the prime rib fell short.....
Had a great time. Jimmy our sleigh drive was awesome along with Mike and Pete our horse.
I was visiting my son and family in Bozeman and wanted to treat him and his wife with the dinner/sleigh ride. Everything was excellent and I would recommend to everyone.
The only issue was when I made my reservation, what I printed out said it was for 5:30. When we arrived we were told the sleigh ride wasn’t until 7:00 so we had a long wait.
I would definitely do this again when I’m in the area!
My husband and I are from Bozeman and thought the sleigh ride to the Cabin in the woods was fun- however I do think there were a few simple things that could of been improved. First I will start with the positives- the horses were beautiful, food service was prompt when we arrived to cabin, the entire process was very “Montana authentic” and during the sleigh ride you could see the stars perfectly! Food wasn’t amazing but still a very good home style prime rib, mashed potatoes ( should add a gravy), veggie medley. The guy that sang the cowboy songs was really good and authentic, but cabin was so small you can’t have a conversation at the same time. A few improvements could be made to make it worth the $270 (for 2 people) would of been- some type of lighting either Xmas lights on the trees or on the sleigh, maybe serve complimentary hot chocolate or cider beforehand to customers, and a heater in the outhouse bathroom could of made everyone’s experience nicer. It was 28 degrees in the outhouse and could of easily been heated. Also benches in sleighs and wagons had no cushions and they crammed 4 large adults to one bench making everyone sit sideways. When you get to the cabin it’s too late to possibly order a glass of wine with your meal- no alcohol is served once you sit down- you’re expected to hold a plastic cup of wine for the entire ride in the freezing dark or possibly buy a bottle before hand at the check in desk? There was a corporate party that they smooshed with a few of us couples that were on dates so there had to be 45 adults all crammed into one tiny cabin at the same time with one super cold outhouse. I think if you have a party over the size of 20 you need to book a private time- don’t make the rest of us squeeze in to fill in the holes- it was waaaay to packed. Essentially what I’m getting at is if you pay $270 for two people I felt you should have more privacy like your own table instead of family style date night.
Always beautiful and a great ride up but they changed the chef this year and it is not nearly as good as last year with Cowboy Tom. Not the same experience. Food was ok more fu-fu then cowboy. :-(
