They have cabins at the Diner or there is a little cozy small home for rent in town, call the store for details. Also rental cabins at Summer Lake hotsprings.

Bring your appetite, huge portions. Food is fine, it is more about the atmosphere and area.

Thanks RA.
How is the museum of cowboy memorabilia/aka curio shop?
Wish they had fillet mignon in the 26 oz portions.

Make Resvertions, cabins to rent on site and Summer lake hot springs or camp at neaby Thompson Valley reservioir, and you can finish the meal the next day……you will be packing food out for sure!

Make sure you have reservations well in advance. This summer I thought 3 weeks would be enough, boy was I wrong. My wife just about killed me when I told her we wouldn't be going there on our vacation. May be I'll get her there next year. Third time's a charm right.

From what I've read on the site, I'd better bring a suitcase for leftovers.
Paisley isn't that far away. Used to have relatives there. Not sure anymore.
But got some friends in La Pine too. And maybe little brother in Bend. If he's not out cruising the country with his travel trailer.

Best roasted chicken in the fine state of Oregon. I've eaten there a few times while hunting units around there. It's worth the trip, IMO.

Bring a cooler for leftovers if you have to drive far.
If you order the steak you WILL have leftovers. Also will get a whole chicken if you go that way. We drive in from Sunriver and it’s a bit of a drive but part of the experience for us.

A group of us went there when we were at Christmas Valley for Memorial Day weekend.

Had a 19 year old kid with us that cleaned his plate. Don’t know that I could have done that at his age, but close...

D4D. Are ya talking about the "Jersey Lilly" in Ingomar?
I thunk I've heard of it somewhere. Used to work with a coupla fishing nuts from Montana, that had gotten around there quite a bit.
Wifey lived there for a while too.
I've never been in Montana for some reason. Been all around it though.
Another bit to add to me bucket list.
Thanks mon.

It is a feed bag like no other. If you have not been there you need to go. The food is great and the history of the place is very interesting too. And of course like all the other posts there will be leftovers. Enjoy!

You will need to order your meals when you make your reservation. The menu is fairly short. Chicken or steak!

My inlaws went and ate at Cowboy Dinner Tree a few months ago with their friends - said it was great. They called for reservations and had to wait almost a month! They ended up bringing home a whole meal LOL

It's on my "things to do" list in the future!

My take on it is its good. I wouldnt say its great. Its one of those places you go to for the whole experience. You get two choices for an entry. Beef or chicken. Though the beef is large, its a sirloin cut that is ok. Nothing to rant about. I never understood why they didnt just offer a big ol 2" ribeye. I mean if your gonna go there to eat beef, make it count! The chicken is good and is very similar to a beer can chicken on your Traeger. Honestly, the sides are the treats. Homemade everything including the ranch dressing, and the dessert. Great atmosphere and decor... Last I was there, it was $25 a head and each person had to order. No sharing which is understandable.... Usually left overs of meat....

Great place for family reunion or to take out of town guests and everything is home cooked from their ranch, even the kids help. We took out of town family there years ago and mom the cook sat her four year old at a corner table alone with his dinner since he was too small to help in the kitchen. He couldn’t finish all his dinner so he took his plate around to guests to see if they wanted his leftovers. I would have obliged, but I had my own duffel bag ready to pack. Two things to add- prepare for a long and scenic drive to get out there, watch for deer and elk on the road and if you time it just right you can catch a concert at fort rock after dinner.

Forgot the important stuff....when you make reservations make sure you tell them you want extra rolls to go and take zip lock bags, foil and ice.

I had to look them up. Sirloin to me is on the low side of ok. Porterhouse/T-bone or ribeye gets my attention. Anything else and I’ll just cook at home.

Sounds like a fun atmosphere, though.

Kind my thoughts also.
Except maybe fillet mignon. And I prefer to cook those meself.
Just wonder how big the chicken is? In comparison to the steaks, I would think maybe an 8 pounder?
But once again, I like to cook my beer can chicks right here at home.

It’s pretty hard to beat a Costco chicken. $4.99.

True dat.
In fact have an extra in one of our freezers right now.
Wifey had 6 to 10 of her g-kids over for a couple days, right before school
resumed.
She thought the little widgets would scarf it down. So bought 2 of the Costco cluckers, last tie she was there.
They didn't touch em.

Not trying to start a big old argument, but for $33 you get a pretty damn good steak (imo). The sides are amazing and you can make sandwiches out of the loeftovers that are awesome in deer camp the next day!!!

It’s not like you’re @ a restaurant like Morton’s, or ringside or el gaucho paying upwards of $70-$100 for just a steak. I can’t speak on the chicken.

Do they raise their own kettle?
Wonder if they're Angus?
But doubt it. Probably Hereford. It's the cowboy way.
Had an Angus steak over a camp fire while fishing at Beulah reservoir, a few years ago.
My Gawd it was good.
And the fishing weren't half bad neither.

Naa. They don’t raise their oun. They are starting to raise their oun chickens tho. Built a huge plant in Nebraska. Several different suppliers of beef and pork. St. Helens beef is one of them. I’m not certain what breed of cattle they use but it sure is good. They even have wagu some times. I have always wanted to go to they cowboy Dinner tree and try it out. Some one earlier said their friends had a 3 month wait for reservations? Hard to plan a dinner that far out that far away. Someday I will.

Best steak for the money in the state is at the Acropolis. Lot closer than driving to Cowboy Dinner Tree

Just kidding ya mon.
Of course steak is always welcome in camp.
Right up there with some good ol' cowboy coffee. Made the chuck wagon way.
But deer or elk back strap is the grub of choice.

The wife and I stayed in Butch's Cabin in the town of Silver Lake, we took a walk around town and I swear it is one of the most quiet towns I have ever been in. I really enjoyed it.

Keep a keen eye out if you stay in town, there are several foxes (animal kind) around town.

I also scored on a really good squirrel hunt and it only cost me a pint of whiskey..........I ran through 500 rounds in a couple of hours.

There is a RV park in town also, so that is another option, stayed there this spring.

I agree,, not a fan of sirloin. Turn it into burger. The steak at the Dinner Tree is more like a small roast anyways... nothing to write home about but again, the experience.

Exactly... I only went when over that way for hunting. And to be honest, if I go back there to hunt again, I would prob pass on the Dinner Tree... To each their own....

I agree. Is it a steak or a whole rump roast?
