Dating back to 1922, this local establishment was founded by widow, Cassie Waters, a businesswoman with a knack for nightclubs and restaurants. Since then, it has become the number one spot in town to grab a bite to eat, catch up with the locals and learn a little town history. Their steaks are the talk of the town and their happy hour specials make for an excellent deal. Weekly live music and events fill up the calendar from fiddlers playing blue grass to a piano man, karaoke and even line dancing lessons.
The ZooMontana makes for a perfect family outing. This zoo has a wide variety of regional and exotic animals that are interesting to look at. The zoo also caters to private parties like birthdays. A fun place for fun times. Check website to know more.
Located on the Shoshone River, the Buffalo Bill Dam is 325 feet (99 meters) tall. When the dam was completed in 1910 it was actually the tallest dam in the world!

Don't forget to stop inside the Visitor's Center to check out the exhibits or rent an audio guide. Visitors should note that the Visitor's Center is only open seasonally.
