Dining out in Sheridan County can be many things, but to put it simply, it’s delicious. The area has an enticing mix of long-standing restaurants loved by the locals, several bar and grills, and fine dining establishments.


Sheridan County’s Landmark Restaurants

Stop in the historic PO News & Flagstaff Café in Sheridan for a homemade lunch in an old newsstand and (smoke-free) cigar shop. The café is full of character, with original handmade cabinets and tin-stamped ceilings, and the menu features breakfast all day, hot and cold sandwiches, soups and salads, and made-fresh pies and cobblers.

In downtown Sheridan, Wyoming’s Rib & Chop House invites diners with juicy hand-cut steaks served on sizzling plates, slow-cooked ribs, fresh seafood, buffalo, ostrich and even wild boar. It opened in 2002 and quickly became a favorite with the locals, so don’t be surprised if it’s a bit crowded. The Western menu is complemented by a large liquor and wine selection.

If it’s Friday night, you can bet many Sheridan County folks are eating at the Bozeman Trail Inn in Big Horn. The century-old restaurant establishment is known for its prime rib special on Fridays and Saturdays and live music Friday nights.

Originally a livery stable when it opened in 1882, the Bozeman Trail Inn was completely restored after it suffered a devastating fire in 2006 and reopened for business in 2008. It is owned and operated by the Sheperds, a mother-and-son team.
