Haydens Post Ratings and Reviews
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.
I have eaten here a few times. The food is always good and the servers are usually hot. Service is good a
and is definitely improving. Also, the hostess is really hot. The deck was a great choice on a nice. Also, beautiful bussers and bartenders. I will be coming back!!
We had a table of four out on the deck and the view was amazing. We could see the entire town of Jackson and the surrounding mountain range. Would definitely have the salmon flatbread and kettle mac & cheese. These were off the charts. Great food and service and the price was definitely right by Jackson standards.
We really like this place and have been several times. Our most recent trip was awful, so bad in fact we left before our food arrived. Once seated, thirty minutes went by before anyone came to take a drink order. It was another fifteen minutes before the drinks arrived. We ordered an appetizer of french fries when our drinks finally came and when they failed to come after another thirty minute wait we left. A table next to us arrived after us and had two rounds of drinks and their food and were done with the meal during our time sitting there.
We had an early reservation but the servers were already declaring that they were slammed. Decided to try the deviled egg app as it seemed quite a bold statement to put it on the menu, it paired well with the salad we had (ordered separately) probably a note to the chef that a small composed salad would be an improvement to the egg dish. In all the comfort food was well done but the service was at times cold (distant with a European feel, not quite the friendly American west that I would expect) and definitely slow. The wine list is not worth the look, one step above the typical bar choice of "red or white"...though it probably is a dream for the restaurateur when it comes to "no thinking + high margin." Decor is western country club.
We dined at Hayden's Post the night before they closed for the off season. We scored the table by the big windows and were able to watch the beautiful snow falling on the mountains. The food was fabulous! The service was attentive. We had a wonderful time. My husband LOVED the steak and fries. They were delectable!
Haydens Post seems to be really trying to do it right. The interior is modern western, the view's great, and the ambiance is inviting. The service was undeniably excellent. We had steaks, mashed potatoes, truffled parmesan fries, roasted potatoes, mussels, and a bottle of Sean Minor Pinot Noir. All the items we ordered were excellent. All the items were far more reasonably priced than they would otherwise be elsewhere in Teton County. For whatever reason, our roasted mushrooms were forgotten. They brought them out quickly and comped them. I can only make one complaint; the bread. I didn't look at the bill that closely, but I think you may have to pay for the bread, which I can live with. But it wasn't very good in my opinion.
Ok....totally understand being busy and maybe taking a litle longer
than one would like, to get served, but 25 minutes to get our drinks
and 45 to get our food...
Heads up Hayden's....ATLEAST give us some bread and
our drinks immediately....sitting there for 25 for
a glass of wine..REALLY...how long does it take
to pour a glass of wine?
Isn't that service 101..give them bread and drinks asap
and you'll be forgiven for the SLOW service and
Met my girlfriends for drinks and dinner. Loved the views, the fireplace, and the cozy, fun atmosphere in the bar! We all had the house salad and the salmon special. The salad was incredible! I'll have to say the salmon was the BEST I have ever eaten in my life! I eat salmon in restaurants because I know it's healthy, but I can rarely finish it because it's so rich. The salmon at Hayden's Post was prepared perfectly. I ate every bite! My friends and I vowed to return in a few weeks. We had a wonderful, delicious time!! Kudos to the chef and our wonderful waiter!
I've eaten a few times at Hayden's Post. This night, service was slow but prior visits have been fine. Food is good, good selection for kids too. Food should have been served a bit hotter, but flavor and presentation excellent. Overall I do recommend and would give it solid 4 star if service was a bit more prompt
Located at the foot of Snow King ski resort and part of the hotel, Hayden's Post have had great all around reviews -- we were not disappointed..
Food was plentiful, hot, esthetically arranged and tasty, as well as reasonably priced and served with a smile; definitely a keeper!
A fresh updated and comfortable look, very modern and mountain-esque. Service was very pleasant and helpful. Views of Snow King Mountain and forest were very nice. Food excellent. i had the burger with cheddar and carmelized onions - very tasty and fries were out of this world. Husband had steak, he enjoyed. Friend had vegetable filled pastry. salads had interesting garnishes and a kick of chipotle honey dressing. We had the bread pudding for dessert, great to share and was really excellent. We will definitely be back.A huge improvement from the former tired and dank bar / restaurant this used to be. Gorgeous and fresh and the food is very good. I'd be back anytime for a burger....
