By buddy and I were looking for dinner. We ran across this place. It had a good mix of entrees to choose from. He had the grilled chicken salad and I had the trout. We were tired of burgers and such. I also had a...house salad. The salads were fresh and with good flavor. The trout came on a bed of artichoke hearts and spinach with a wine sauce (I think!). Anyway, it was really good. Pricing was fare for the meal. The place was leisurely in atmosphere and had a good vibe. I’d eat there again. Service was also really good. There was a moderate crowd when we went.More

Where to eat in little Lander, WY? Cowfish was a great find. We had an excellent dinner with attentive service. Tried the cucumber margarita. Delicious!

We stayed in Lander, WY in September 2021 at The Mill House across the street and Cowfish was just a walk across Main Street for us. We went twice and found the food very good, ambience relaxed and a great place to visit for a...great meal.More

Delightful place in Lander we enjoyed greatly on our quick trip through to Jackson Hole! The food was so delicious, we ate there two nights in a row. The salmon, filet, trout, shrimp, wedge salad, and caramel butterscotch dessert we had were all prepared well...and hot food served hot, and cold food served cold. The waitstaff was pleasant and helpful, and the atmosphere with cool music, art, and lighting made it seem big city. Now…..if they could figure out how to kill flies this time of year, they would be golden. But……that did not stop us from going back in. Will remember you Cowfish, in a nice way. Thanks!More

My wife and I love a Cowfish and have been eating there regularly since it first opened. I think it's the best restaurant in WY ... it's certainly better than any of the overpriced garbage in Jackson. Try one of the burgers!

This was the first time coming here, only waited a few minutes to be seated. The staff was very friendly, all smiles and knew the menue well, I ordered the vodka martini, extra dirty, extra olives, and it was perfect. The appetizer was garlic bulbs...with sourdough bread, and wow was that ever tasty! The main course was call the Cow crustacean, came with a steak and shrimp, polenta, and broccolini, the polenta was a touch sticky, and the steak was cooked as ordered, however, I must have gotten a bad cut? It was tough and chewy. The shrimp was huge looking, however it was all breading, what a shame. I ordered a steak sandwich to take home, it came with French Fries, the fries are string potatoes, the steak is a sirloin cut thin, have not tried it yet, so really can't comment on how it is. The prices are high, unless you get sandwiches. Someone had brought in their dog, when I left I asked if dogs were permitted inside, and was told not inside, but allowed on the patio, only service dogs inside, the one that was there was well behaved, have no idea if was a service dog. It's always crowded here, people really enjoy this place, worth a visit.More

Food and Cocktails are spot on. Great variety and after six annual trips we finally made it through the entire appetizers list on this past trip. I always get the trout as the entree. Pan fried to perfection. We work through several cocktails in a...single sitting and love trying all the creative mixology concoctions. If you don't like the gin listed in the cocktail, request one of the others, for example. We overheard our 19 year old server explaining to the table next to us that even though she is underage, she could answer their questions about the cocktails and spirits. She nailed it! Even at her young age, she was a seasoned server. Lovely patio setting and great service. There might be one or two items on the menus we haven't tried so there's always reason to come back.More

We really enjoyed our dinner here…did not have a reservation, but they seated us quickly in the bar area. Beer menu was great and we ended up buying a growler to take home. Food was excellent! I’m going to the loca Lincoln St. bakery tomorrow...to buy the bread they served tonight. 👍More

Stopped in twice in a week while on a climbing trip. Sat at the bar both times. Susie is awesome. From one bartender to another, she’s got it together. For the restaurant; the food is great. Had the steak sandwich one night, fish tacos and...a spinach salad the second. Both meals were excellent and well priced. The beer brewed next door at Lander Bar is good. The cocktail menu is creative and the drinks are done right. If I was a local, I’d be here on the regular.More
