Haydens Post Ratings and Reviews
I've eaten at Hayden's Post many times and the food does not disappoint. The decor is what I would call "Jackson Hole Modern," totally made that up. From many seats, you can watch skiers coming down from one of Snow King's runs. Service is casual yet good. I have ordered or tasted almost everything on the breakfast menu, all solid. For dinner this last time, I had the pork chops on a bed of grits with okra and tomatoes, it was tender, unique, and delicious. My husband had the Bison NY Strip, and our friend ordered the St. Louis Ribs. Everything was cooked perfectly and nice portions. Great for apres-ski, a special dinner, or just cocktails. The bar is in the same, open space. Delicious cocktails, a cozy fireplace, and lively. The menu changes slightly with the seasons, so check out the menu on Snow King's website, not ones posted on 3rd-party websites. I have enjoyed live music here on weekend nights, but this last trip there wasn't any. Hopefully that was a fluke. Service while seated at the bar could improve, but dining area service was very good.
Shared a beet and pear salad...nicely presented and very generous portions and delicious. Butternut bisque soup was mild flavor and good for first course. Sea bass and pork chop entrees were tasty! Can't get over the panna cotta we ordered for dessert...had a layer on top with tiny amount of chocolate ganache drizzled. Removed the layer as we couldn't break it apart with a fork and knife and which we were told was white chocolate. It was frozen! Disappointment. The "pudding" was delicious. Person waiting on table should have removed dessert when we asked what was the HARD layer and zapped it in the microwave. Did nothing responding to us.
I recently stayed at the resort that Haydens Post is located and with all the great dining options in Jackson I hadn't given much thought to eating there. After a late day at Jackson Hole I decided it was too cold to venture out and opted to eat "in". What an amazingly pleasant surprise! I'm an avid snowboarder and have been to most major resorts in North America and have had my share of mediocre resort restaurant meals. Not so at Haydens. Had the Bison NY steak as my main and it was cooked to perfection. Timing, temperature and presentation were perfect, including the sides. Highly recommend dining whether staying at the resort or not!
Terrible service. Took over 20 minutes to be seated even though there were many open tables and servers. Turned out manager was the only one who could seat diners and he disappeared - staff couldn't find him. They were out of a lot of different dishes. Took forever for food to come out and it didn't come out all at once. To top it off, some of the food was barely warm. We will not be going back. Very disappointed.
I got the double pork chops. When I started to eat, and tasted them, it reminded me when my father used to barbecue by squeezing starter fluid on the coal to get the fire going. And after doing that, it would leave an after taste and that's exactly what those pork chops reminded me of. The whole meal which included squash and okra, tasted all the same. I didn't bother to eat everything which I hate to do because I do not like to waste food. But this food was awful.
We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner at Hayden's Post. The restaurant was packed and they were extremely busy. The food was great and our server was very attentive even though she had many tables. Love the atmosphere at Hayden's Post: The big windows, high ceilings, and the gorgeous, big fireplace. It was the perfect restaurant for our Holiday dinner!
This was the most civilized Thanksgiving dinner I've ever (and I'm in my seventies). Our food was served to us! No standing in lines at a buffet; no catching up with conversations when returning to the table; this was the ultimate way to Thanksgiving! Prime rib and Turkey with traditional sides were excellent and plentiful.
Not good service...took a long time for wait staff to get our drink order. Staff had a hard time communicating with each other & us.
We odered Caesar salad, special soup...not edible. My husband had the steak...that was ok! We had just come off of a 12 hour tour of Yellowstone...thought it was a good idea to eat at the hotel...should have gone into town like the night before, ate at Snake River Grill...excellent ! Go there!!!!
Our online reservation worked perfectly, and the manager had a special table selected and ready for us. The manager paid attention to us all evening long to make sure we were satisfied, and it was completely genuine attention. Our server was equally gracious and attentive, offering patient explanations to all of our questions regarding menu items. Her drink recommendations were spot on, and the dinner was excellent, from cheese board appetizer to complimentary dessert. The dinner offerings were creative and perfectly prepared. It was difficult to choose because they all looked appealing. It was a completely satisfactory dining experience.
I am sure the food on a normal night would have been great. But the dinner for new years was very amateur, with rare table service for drinks and water, tables not receiving proper sides like bread ect. Then food not being prepared properly like rare steak instead of medium.
We were staying in the hotel, so we thought we would eat at this hotel restaurant for convenience, rather than going into Jackson. We should have picked one of the restaurants in town. The prime rib for the special was pretty good, but the rest of the food was disappointing. The service at this dinner was largely inattentive. At breakfast the next day, it was a bit better.
Very disappointing. Food was prepared very poorly. Bison burger was asked for med/we'll. it came cold and charged. It was so dry it was impossible to swallow. the 2 bites I tried. Produce in both spinach salad and Caesar was wilted. Mahogany BBQ chicken had been brined and smoked(not stated on menu) and was so salty it couldn't be eaten. Wine and beer were great.
On a good note, we did speak to the manager who insisted not only on taking no payment for the awful meal, but asked us to come back free of charge. He assured us that this was not standard service and he would check on the kitchen.
Other people shared that they have had good food and service. If we were in town longer we would give them a 2nd chance with the managers offer.
Very disappointing for the price. Short ribs were basically all fat/no meat and the polenta was lumpy and disappointing. My wife's trout was not only small (seemed like only one side of a fillet), it was overcooked and dried out. Good service and atmosphere couldn't overcome mediocre food.
We had dinner here last weekend and were incredibly surprised by everything, considering this is a hotel restaurant. The food was unique & different. The Bison chili was amazing, the Elk Bolognese - delicious and the market tasting of vegetables was a huge portion and freshly prepared & wonderful! We asked the Bartender to recommend a couple drinks and ended up with a Sage & vodka cocktail that was like nothing I've ever had before (going to try and make this one at home) and a Rye whisky cocktail that was perfect for a summer day. The entertainment in the bar was a surprise and was top notch. Definitely recommend this place if you are in Jackson! The staff was friendly, service was spot on and clearly, they have a great chef!
Came in for Mother's Day brunch and had a wonderful time, so I wanted to come back to try the dinner menu. Really liked the music and the interior decor. We dined inside but the outdoor area looked very nice and spacious. A lot of nice wines on the wine menu that I was familiar with and thought the prices were fair. Started with the kettle mac n cheese, which was delicous, and the ceasar salad, which was a very nice ceasar dressing. Had the Elk for my meal, which was wonderful, it was really nice to see a game option on the menu for people who are visiting the area. I hear they have live music on Friday and Saturdays, so I definitely want to check that out sometime!
This was the first time I have visited Hayden's Post. I liked the openness. I was a little disturbed with the yard work that was being done. We were there about 12:00 and I do not think the lunch time is the best time to be using a weed string trimmer. It took away from the atmosphere.
The server was very positive and very pleasant. I would return. I am assuming the string trimming doesn't take place daily. If I did experience it again, I would not be back a third time.
