Our “Where We Visit” blog series has been a very valuable tool in helping show our guests the value and meticulous standards that we uphold in our partners. Our team understands that a tour goes beyond just Experience Park Tours and what we do. Our guests are affected by our lodging, how we dine, and who we choose to involve in our tours.
We understand how valuable vacation time is. That is why we do immense amounts of research into each region that we travel to. We find not only the most quality destinations but also businesses that have personality and values that align with our own. The Trapper Grill on Jackson Lake is a perfect example of a unique and special place for us and our guests.
The Trapper Grill
We love taking our guests to the Trapper Grill for dinner on our Alpine wonders of Yellowstone and Grand Teton tour because of the incredible dining experience paired with an even more incredible view during sunset. We time our departure to the restaurant perfectly so that our guests can marvel at the sun setting over the Grand Tetons as they eat locally sourced fresh foods from the Yellowstone and Grand Teton area.
Signal Mountain Lodge is located 30 miles north of Jackson, Wyoming right on Jackson Lake. Guest’s have the opportunity to walk down from the restaurant to the rocky shore and enjoy the view while their food arrives. In the summer months, Signal Mountain Lodge offers a lake view deck with plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the fresh air and picturesque views if one does not wish to walk down to the shore.
When Erik, the Food and Beverage Director at Signal Mountain Lodge was asked about why dining at the trapper Grill is so unique, he had one clear answer.
“We are a leader in food quality and sustainability in the Tetons”.
Setting the standard for the rest of the restaurants in the region, Signal Mountain Lodge has made quite the name for themselves by focusing on being environmentally sustainable.
The trapper grill currently serves all local and regional beef, cage-free eggs and is a key business partner in the Seafood Watch campaign. A few of our favorites on the menu are the “Signal Mountain of Nachos”, the Toasted Sunflower and Feta Salad, the Turkey Brie Wrap and the Huckleberry Creme Brulee for dessert.
The restaurant also carries these values on in their other dining establishments including Peaks restaurant, featuring western bistro-style dishes, and the Deadman’s Bar.
