Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole’s four restaurants provide plenty of opportunities to eat well at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star mountain resort. Rustic and lodge-like, none of the luxury property’s restaurants require a coat or tie — they invite you to get cozy and enjoy the varied cuisine.
1. Ascent Lounge. This restaurant is home to one of the resort’s few wood-burning fireplaces — that alone would be enough to make it an appealing spot. Add to it super-soft chairs, an extensive cocktail menu, seasonal sushi, bar bites and live music during the high summer and winter seasons, and you’ve got the perfect spot to relax after a long day. If you prefer a view, take your cocktail outside to one of the six fire pits, sit in one of th Adirondack chairs, nestle under the Pendleton blanket and enjoy the scenery.
2. Westbank Grill. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, Westbank Grill is one of Jackson Hole’s best restaurants. You can’t beat its ricotta-lemon pancakes or Oscar Benedict with a Dungeness crab cake and asparagus for breakfast. At dinnertime, Westbank Grill becomes a mountain steakhouse — prime beef is cooked to perfection on a 1,800-degree infrared grill. The wine list includes 25 selections by the glass.
3. The Handle Bar. This American beer hall provides international beers (served in a can, bottle, stein or even boot), whiskeys (everything from Yamazaki to Jameson) and more. But because celebrity chef Michael Mina's Mina Group is behind The Handle Bar, food is a focus, too. Expect modern pub fare, such as lobster corn dogs and elk chili topped with cheddar, scallions and Fritos. In the summer, the restaurant features a special grilling menu with fresh seafood boils, St. Louis-style barbecue and seasonal sides.
4. The Pool Café. Open from mid-June into September, The Pool Café serves up burgers, sandwiches, salads, fruit smoothies and snacks. Our favorite item? The housemade s'mores shake.
