Since this week is super rough after an amazing trip last week, let the JH recaps continue. This post is all about all the yummy food we ate and the dranks we drank! There are definitely more places to visit than what we covered this past week, but none the less the spots we picked were pretty tasty too. Enjoy!
We had seen this spot on an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, so we definitely wanted to check it out, it did not disappoint. We ended up at this spot twice for brunch and were introduced to deliciousness AKA pig candy. The pig candy was a game changer, especially when paired with a Bloody Mary. Oh, and you can buy it online too! Not only was the atmosphere quaint and cute, but the service and staff was exceptional and the food was great. I went with the Biscuits with Canjun Gravy while B had the Snake River Farms Corned Beef Hash and the Cajun Eggs Benedict, all so good.
Snake River Brewery
The beers are great and it’s supporting local business with delicious food too. We started with the beer sampler, which in and of itself is worth getting because of the presentation. We then ordered the pretzels and cheese dip, ohmygawd. I ordered the bison burger, because when you’re out west it’s kind of a necessity to get a bison burger. I definitely over indulged but it was the good kind, plus you forget when the atmosphere is fun and tunes are cranking.
The Deck @ Piste
AKA happy hour at nearly 9,000 ft. AKA one of the most stunning happy hours you might ever go too. The free gondola rides start at 4:30 and from there the 10-minute or so trip takes you up to The Deck. The drinks are delicious and the views don’t stop it’s a win-win combination for good conversation and a good time – not to mention live music too! We were able to get this happy hour in twice while we were in town.
Million Dollar Cowboy Bar
The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar is a staple in downtown Jackson. It’s marquee is a photo stop day or night, but you must be 21 to enter this bar! It wasn’t until 2-years ago that I finally got to visit the bar. It’s rustic decor is just what you would expect, and yet the most known item at MDCB is the saddle bar stools. We enjoyed some cocktails and grabbed dinner at the bar, they have a Steakhouse in the basement, but we opted for chicken fingers, burgers and fries. *smiles* It’s definite a must-stop in JH.
A few other spots we visited were the Mangy Moose, E Leaven, Thai Me Up, Smokin’ Iron (awesome patio) and Moo’s Ice Cream. We definitely got to enjoy a lot more food since we stayed in town so we were closer for brunching, lunching or sipping, all of it within walking distance too!
