Bunkhouse Bar & Grill is rated 4.8 out of 5 stars, based on 76 reviews!
Went on a late Sunday afternoon. Easy drive from the motel off I 25. There was a horse tied up at-the entrance ridden by a cowboy who lived across the road. There were pickers sitting around a table playing country songs. I had the special that night, dry rubbed ribs, smoked for hours. One of the best spare ribs I have had. The beans served with them were a mix of several bean types with bacon and a nice spicy kick. This place has great reviews in trip advisor and that's why we tried it. If you are in the area, go there.
Great Food! Great Service! Great drinks! Fun atmosphere, very comfortable, and very reasonably priced. You won't regret the stop.
We found this place because it had excellent reviews. We'd be there about 15 minutes when the band struck up, and it's reminiscent of days past with Golden hour country music. The steaks were quite good and the atmosphere was to die for. After all, where else could you find both front door horse parking AND four wheelers parked in the front?
The Service is excellent and friendly!
The brown gravy is so good I wanted to drink it. I recommend the Salisbury steak and I usually never like Salisbury steak.
In the summer the deck is very peaceful.
Best place to get a great hamburger.
For long-distance travelers, detouring on Wyoming 210 from Interstate 80 is a welcome change. Average to excellent food; somewhat expensive. Distracted and lackadasical waitress.
What a great place n Rod is such a nice guy who makes sure everyone is taken care of and having fun. Food was awesome and the beer was cold.
Great food and great service. It was Tues and they had a live band playing while we were there. We had kids so we were in another room because it was very loud where band was playing. They were great. We had the blackened prime ribs. Very tasty and tender. Spicy but good. We also had the loaded baked pot and very good. We had the calf fries and poppers and they were good but calf fries could have used a little bit more seasoning. Portions of app were generous. Def go again!!
It is just average. I had the rib eye steak and it should melt in your mouth, but was tough. The salad was warm and had brown leaves. Rod the owner just stopped at the table to see hlid we were happy with our meal. I told him what I thought and he was eager to make it right. Good man!
The bunkhouse bar and grill is a nice place w an old west frontier atmosphere. They still have hitching posts to tie the horses to while you come in eat drink and enjoy live music during frontier days. Was gonna take some pictures and they have all areas posted. Really like to visit the bunkhouse bar and grill. Highly recommended to out of town right looking for live entertainment, great food, and an ice cold brew. Not far from Crystal lake.
If I am around Cheyenne this place is a must! The staff is always very welcoming and friendly. The food is always good, last time I was there (1 week ago) We got an order of the Mountain Oysters, I got the pork chops, 2 people got the chicken fried steak, and 1 got the spaghetti. We all left satisfied. If you want to eat outside there is a beautiful view, but there is plenty to look at inside as well. very down home country feel to it.
We have been told several times that we needed to try out this place. Wow, everyone was right. We had a combo appetizer with the absolute best chicken wings ever! My husband had a steak that was mouth watering tender and I had the patty melt. Huge servings. Our wait person Delaney was fantastic. She was friendly, prompt and so very courteous. We will definitely be back!!
Great unique place! Totally worth the drive. Great big menu. Friendly good service!
The best bacon cheeseburger!! Fun environment..live music. Good time always!
Great meal. The menu was a little small but the food is great! Well worth the drive out there.
I love this place and wished I visited more often when I lived in Cheyenne. A cool place on the outskirts of Cheyenne to have a good drink and some really good food!! There are live bands depending on the day and I love that western decor and atmosphere. A definite must try if you are in the area.
Quality Steaks. It's not just regular old beef. The sirloin I had very tender. The prime rib was exceptional. Service was very attentive and friendly . Country atmosphere , very log cabin feel. Loved it.
A homey, welcoming place! Pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff (“Rose”), great service and great food. We ordered a few appetizers, including the Rocky Mountain oysters. Interesting to try for the first time, I would order again! Prime rib was ordered medium rare and was seasoned wonderfully and cooked perfectly. Jam sessions on Sunday about 1. Great atmosphere for the whole family!
Came here on a business trip and wanted to check out some local flavor. It was awesome! Good food, good people, good music. What more could you ask for?
Best food in Wyoming. Hello Rob ?????
Best hamburger and onion rings in Cheyenne! Well worth the drive!
Should get 4 stars. My girlfriend and I tried this steakhouse again about 4 weeks ago. She was hearing nothing but good reports, so we went back. Sunday is definitely the night to go. Food was great. Lots of fun AND music. Glad we tried it again. 4 stars!! For sure.
Best place out of town. Exceptional service. Great food. Good times. The Bunkhouse has it all. Oh, and the bar is nothing short of fantastic with a crowd that is always entertaining. Like live bands? This is your place, especially on the weekends. Fun environment and the decor is something everyone will love and remember. The owners are fantastic and the staff is amazing. They treat you like family as soon as you walk through the doors. We love this place. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants and has become one of our go-tos, especially for for to-gos. Speaking of which, call ahead and order. Quick turn around time and food is still steamy by the time you get it home. This place is truly worth the trip. Second-to-none!
bEER IS gOod HErE
Great food and people
passing tbru to go horseback riding...visitor center recommened this place for a quick beer/lunch. WOW they were right! Great food, great bartender, awesome locals (thanks for the beer Red) Felt at home and we didn't want to leave Carolyn & Bill
I've been meaning to write a review of The Bunkhouse Saloon and restaurant I'm too busy attending Friday and Saturday nights dancing, Bunkhouse has a friendly atmosphere if you choose to bring your kids no problem they can dance as well, good Ole Wyoming Honky Tonk Saloon the band is awesome playing some older Country Western wonderful to dance to I recommend it highly for anybody visiting the Cheyenne area approximately 15 miles west 20 of Cheyenne
Totally worth the trip 15 minutes west of Cheyenne. Basic menu with a few specials: Rocky Mountain oysters, country fried steak, prime rib. The classic BLT was wonderful. Chef salad, apps and cordon bleu sandwich was tasty. Dead animals all over walls. Fun country music even during the day. Classic high desert cowboy meets the mountain west.
we had so much fun here, ate drank and danced, and had a great rib eye steak. 15 miles out in the middle of nowhere,sure we were lost but there it is, lotsa cars in front. Ya gotta see this place. Service was great from beginning to the end and the country band was the best. Loved it all.
Incredible Buffalo Brat and open faced prime rib sandwich. Our server MIchelle was great. Live music and Classic car show. It doesn't get any better
The food was amazing at this out in the middle of nowhere Place. Prime rib was excellent and make sure you save room for the brownie tower. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Highly recommend this place. It's worth the drive in from Cheyenne.
Great fish and chips under $10. Prompt cordial service from our waitress. Definitely recommend visiting this place for a try. Steaks looked to b priced at $30.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stop at Bunkhouse Bar. As soon as we sat down, we connected with Sanja. She was a lot of fun to chat with. We also met one of the owners, Rod, who was friendly and funny. A beautiful drive, lots of WY charm and a welcoming atmosphere. My husband has declared this is all-time favorite bar. We are excited to get back!
This place is awesome. We took my nephew out fr his birthday and to quote him, "That was the best freakin' prime rib I have ever had". The servers were great! And, considering that it was the first Saturday of Frontier Days, we had reservations and were seated right when we got there. If you could rate higher than 5 stars I would do it. Thanks for a great experience!
Super cool WY bar in a pretty setting out on the prairie, the beer is always cold and the food is outstanding! Prime rib and prime rib sandwich are both great! Some of the best rocky mountain oysters I have ever had! The service is always great and the people are friendly!
Another great meal at The Bunkhouse! The owner Rodney and his wife always make my friends and I feel welcome. This is a great spot for all walks of life. Great scenic road for motorcycles, hot rods and here the kicker- they have live music on the weekends. The prices are less then you'll pay in town. They have a full bar and great food. Service is top notch and the wait staff is personable and prompt. Best spot in Albany and Cheyenne county for food and drinks!
Excellent...Great food and excellent atmosphere, Plus friendly service. I'll be back,,,
Great food, people, and atmosphere.
We had an INCREDIBLE experience at the Bunkhouse. A group of us drove up from Colorado Springs/Boulder on a reference from one gal's brother to enjoy the band and dancing on a Friday night. The band was phenomenal and even asked us which songs we wanted them to play! The band and bar staff were so friendly. After I did the cowboy cha-cha alone on the dance floor a lady who lives nearby came up to me and bought me a drink. The bar owners, Rod and Hollie were amazing and we loved hearing their stories. We received hospitality second to none!! They really took care of us and made sure we had everything we could possibly need! They were generous and SO hospitable. We were climbing Vedauwoo the next day and the bar owners let us camp out on the ranch property there and then made us breakfast even though the bar isn't open for breakfast! We will all cherish memories of the Bunkhouse and we'll be back to enjoy it another day! (And yes, we did see a guy stop by on his horse) EVERYONE SHOULD GO! :)
Stopped in for lunch. Great service and even better food! Comfortable country atmosphere. Definitely recommend making the "detour"!
Perfect place to experience rural Wyoming at a typical roadhouse. The food and the entertainment are worth the drive!!!
Great food and they have live music on Friday and Saturday nights
Great place to eat! Reminds me of Texas!! :)
Good place to eat western atmosphere great service best on Fridays and Saturday nights live music
Always great food. The band is super. Fun fun and lots of dancing!
My wife and I were traveling through Cheyenne and decided to drive out Happy Jack Road. We stopped at the Bunkhouse and had a fantastic time. Everyone there was very nice and the service was great. We will come back next time we come through the area.
I also wrote a similar one on TripAdvisor: Our waiter was funny, knew the menu like her own name, & helped us hide the "Rocky Mountain Oyster" ingredients from my cousin's kids. Funniest 30 minutes in the world after they found out what they'd eaten & enjoyed! The chicken fried steak was very tasty & we are all from Texas! Don't mean to advertise this, in case it becomes a burden, but we were really low on gas and the bartender/owner went all the way in to his barn to give us some. He wouldn't take ANY money, but we managed to sneak it to him through the staff. Very grateful. The decor is lively and fun. John Wayne & George Straight cutouts amongst giant Antlers & wester memorabilia! You'll want to take photos.
Visited for lunch. Excellent food. Loaded potato soup was the best. Great burger too. Bartender was very friendly. Definitely will return.
Good food, great people
Such welcoming and fun folks! Love the atmosphere, as well.
Great food, live music on the weekends, and a amazing view
Great place, awesome staff
Love this place! Rustic & redneck. Good food, cold beer & great people. Definitely worth the drive, it's in the middle of nowhere!
The food was great and service was excellent. We will be back for live music in the future!
Great Food And Great Service with a smile. These people care about their customers. Thank you for a great evening!
Since my wife and I moved back here, the Bunkhouse has the best steaks in the area.
Thanks for the great meal.
Great atmosphere,Great service and wonderful food. Check out all of the things on the walls and especially the bar.
Has a real family feel.
I have stopped at the Bunkhouse several times and always enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and the people.
We've been meaning to stop in for a while and we finally did. Danelle was our waitress today and was top shelf. As a waitress myself, I truly appreciated the courtesy, great food and atmosphere. We'll be back!
Great Great Experience.
Great food, we sat at the bar and really enjoyed the owners (Rod & Hollie) and barmaid (Sonja) - all made for a great experience.
Very sorry to read a couple bad reviews below - while I wont attempt to dispute the facts of those negative reviews - I am confident Rod (owner) would have taken immediate action to correct the situation - I was especially surprised about the poor service comment - doesn't sound like our great experience at all!!!
Our next trip to Cheyenne will be on a Fri or Sat night to hear their live country music.
Sit at the bar and chat with Rod or Sonja!!!
Nice, pleasant folks!
My family and I were camping down the road at Curt Gowdy SP and didn't want to travel all the way back into Cheyenne to eat so we took a chance on the restaurant. When we arrived there were other customers in front of us that were not yet seated and said the kitchen closed at 8pm. We were ready to turn around when I believe the owner said come on in! The kitchen would remain open and we were welcome to come and eat dinner. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was great!
great place to eat, the scalloped potatoes are the best I have ever had, the steak is delecious....great local place to eat, listen to some live music on a friday and have a drink
THE place to experience local culture. The food, service, and atmosphere are great!!! I was part of a party of ten people two nights in a row and was treated the same both nights by employees- great! And by the locals- "where Yall from??" Everybody was so nice and fun! Ya gotta try this place!!!
Had the ribeye special with bourbon mustard sauce and it was excellent. Steaks were cooked perfectly.
The Bunk House Bar & Grill is a great place to eat. It is located West out of Cheyenne. They have good food. Homemade pies, great soups and a friendly atmosphere. It is real nice for the folks that live out that way they don't have to run all the way to town.
My husband decided that he wanted to have a burger so we went to The Bunkhouse. There was actually a band playing on a Thursday night, which the waitress said wasn't normal.
I had the Beef Wellington, which was really good. My husband got a hamburger. I made the better choice. Everything was made from scratch and was delicious! We will definitely be regulars.
I went with a group of 12 women. I ordered the bunkhouse steak that is a top sirloin. It was cooked perfectly and very tender. It was about 8 oz of goodness. Several of the women ordered fish and chips and indicated that their meals were good. We were in the side room but it was still very noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation. The band was typical country band. Yes, the horse was tied to the hitching rail out front. Someone said it belongs to a band member who rides it to work! I would go again!
We went here to beat the heat @ Frontier Days. Place was hella packed but there was good live music playin inside and bar service was quick.
Unfortunately, the kitchen was backlogged the entire nighty we were there and it took about two hours for us to get any food.
Prices are reasonable. The service was really good considering the chaos there. Food was decent but I'd go back here more for the nostalgia of the place then the food.
Such a awesome hidden treasure! We stumbled across the bunkhouse one evening and are so happy we did! The food was delicious! The atmosphere was great! Drinks were great! Our waiter was absolutely amazing! Totally will be back before we leave Wyoming!
This place is a hoot!
We stumbled onto this place 4 years ago while driving across Happy Jack Road.
The food is hardy, the dancing is fun and the western ware is real.
For us out-of-towners, calling ahead for reservations is highly recommended or you get to wait while they seat the locals, or so it seemed to us.
Also, if you come during the summer months, a fly swatter might be helpful, even if you eat indoors.
We stumbled upon this place coming back to Denver from a hike and it was great! Amazing burger, great service and the atmosphere was pure wyoming. It was busy on a Saturday afternoon, so I can imagine the crowd they bring most evenings. We will definitely come back for steak, service and music next time!
Dined there on a Thursday evening. The special was prime rib and shrimp for $22 and the soup of the day was French onion. The soup was okay, but nothing special. The prime rib was cooked perfectly (medium rare), the baked potato was fine and the three breaded shrimp were huge. It's a really fun place to go. However, I'm used to Denver where there is no smoking in restaurants and bars and they didn't even ask us for a preference. Next time we will sit in non smoking for sure.
The waitress was exceptional. The special was to die for. The atmosphere gave you a nice homey feeling. What a great place. I highly recommend a stop here!
This clan descent location is a must detour when passing through Cheyenne. It has a rustic country feel to it with a friendly staff. Had the pull pork special....the texture was smooth with a great smoke taste. A bit of country and western frontier style here. Worth the stop!
Trying to decide where my wife and I wanted to go on a date and after reading some of the reviews, I was a little skeptical, but having lived in West Africa, I knew the food had to be better than that. It is about 10 miles west of Cheyenne on Happy Jack Rd. as you head towards Curt Gowdy State Park. On the outside, the restaurant is definitely a rustic feel as is the inside. In a phrase, definitely down-home western style.
Our waitress was very friendly and gave us some recommendations. She was not pushy but answered our questions and gave rave reviews for the Beef Wellington which we asked about. Now, I have not eaten Beef Wellington since a little pub back in my home country of England. The salad was crisp and plentiful. The baked potato was melt in your mouth and even the salt-encrusted skin was full of flavor and easy to chew. The Beef Wellington was not quite what I expected in that it was succulent pieces of beef with mushrooms, onions, and gravy in a puff pastry. Except for the cowboy hats, cowboy boots, and the country and western music (which was not too loud), I thought I was back in England. It was phenomenal.
We finished up with a piece of coconut cream and chocolate silk pie. They were as good as the meal itself. Nothing was overdone, and there was enough to bring home some leftovers. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I expect this will be a regular treat on date nights.
As for the prices, it was better than expected but higher than an established food chain like Steamboats or Texas Roadhouse. However, the ambience is much better and well worth the drive and the price difference.
