Hearty Steaks and Fresh Local Ingredients
If you’re hungry for a great steak or a meal prepared with fresh local ingredients, the Campbell County area offers a number of excellent restaurants to choose from. Open Range Steakhouse, located in Wright, serves a variety of beef, chicken and seafood dishes, including a 32-ounce ribeye and a 20-ounce sirloin steak for two. The restaurant also features entrees made from buffalo “purchased directly from the Durham Buffalo Ranch that lies to our immediate north,” says general manager Alan Waner. “The veranda of the restaurant also offers guests a breathtaking view of this time-honored ranch.”
Located near the North Dakota border in Beulah, Buffalo Jump Saloon & Steak House serves top-quality beef and a wide variety of other seafood, chicken and pasta dishes in a casual, Old West-style atmosphere with rustic wooden floors and an old-time bar.
Stop at the Skyline Grille in Gillette for a selection of house specialties made from locally raised beef, buffalo or lamb.
“We are unique in our effort to use as many local and Wyoming-raised products as possible,” says owner Mark Larson. “Our food is made from scratch, even our vegetables are hand-cut. We also have a large selection of wines.”
