From die hard ski bums in winter to families visiting the National Parks in summer, there is a little something for everyone to enjoy in Jackson, Wyoming. The town draws travelers from all over seeking to revel in the great outdoors throughout all 4 seasons. Regardless of what time of year you are there, one thing remains the same... you need to EAT!

Here are 3 of my favorite restaurants in Jackson that are 100% worth the splurge. Conveniently, they are all located on the same square block downtown.


Snake River Grill takes classic American dishes and elevates them. The menu at first glance feels familiar. Plenty of well curated dishes guaranteed to make your taste buds sing. Dive deeper and you find eclectic twists that cause you to re-read the menu, thinking you may have missed something else spectacular.

The service was absolutely superb, some of the best I have encountered. Our server was unable to greet us in a timely manner so another staff member came over and welcomed us. The interactions we had with every employee were all very positive. Our server knew the menu like the back of her hand and was engaging yet diligent with the allergy restrictions we had.

Snake River Grill still feels more casual than most white table cloth restaurants you might find in a large city, but the quality of cuisine is top notch. It's a fine dining restaurant so be prepared with the price that comes with it.

*Pro tip: if you want something less formal, take a seat at the bar and order the burger. It's not on the menu but they do have one ;)

Most people don't think about fresh seafood when traveling to a land locked state, but I promise King Sushi delivers it. I have lived in California almost all my life and have rarely come across sushi restaurants that curate menu items similar to this...


green apple, avocado, hamachi, smoked salt


salmon, avocado, mango, hamachi, jalepeno, yuzu, lava salt

crouching tiger

avocado, tempura asparagus, salmon, spicy tuna, wasabi aioli, fired shallot, yuzu tobiko, micro greens, citrus soy

If you are not in the experimental mood, they have the more traditional sushi dishes as well.

beef tataki, spicy scallop roll, avocado maki

For the late night hunger with a lively atmosphere, Thai Me Up is a solid choice. The restaurant is combined with Melvin Brewing so there's a decent upbeat atmosphere you don't normally find at a Thai place. Casual, decent drink selection, great curry... all ingredients in a recipe for success.

Reservations: No

Cost: $$
