In late December 2014 we moved our business directly across Interstate 20 from Island Park Lodge to a new and updated facility. Connie has always envisioned owning the building that held so much potential. After years of patient waiting and timing to be just right, the opportunity finally presented itself. Came time to name our new location, my husband Jim was the one that thought of and decided on "Connie's." Being the business mind behind the operation, he was confident that our local clientele and visitors to our Community would follow the name and reputation over to our new location. We are able to prepare a wider variety of entrée choices, serve more customers and offer an abundance of options to customers and visitors. Within our new location we've added the Island Park Fitness Center, and Daisy's Angels' Boutique.
So if you're looking for the best place in Island Park Idaho to dine in or take out, enjoy an adult beverage, shop and more, there's only one name to remember - Connie's Restaurant & Saloon!

By far the best family dining restaurant in Island Park/ West Yellowstone. During our 10 days stay in August we ended up going to dinner there 3 times, would have gone more but it was closed. Connie's has amazing, prompt service (even during busy times) great food, and a clean atmosphere. The food was top-notch, even my picky 11-year old found stuff to eat and kept wanting to go back for it. Affordably priced for the high-quality meals, this restaurant was no more expensive than any other comparable restaurant in the area, but the food was much better in our opinion. The staff knew us by name after the first visit. It really is a top-notch place, especially for families.
* Best Food Ever
The food is fantastic. Spent 3 days in the area and ate there every day for lunch and dinner and never ate the same thing twice. It's a very comfortable place and the staff are great. Highly recommended.
