The Southfork Drifter Restaurant is a throwback to the heyday of guest ranching in Wyoming in the early 1900s.  Then, guest ranches fed their families, workers, and guests with fresh farm-raised meats and produce grown directly on the ranch or by neighbors close by.  This way of life was common then – it was necessary given that the closest market in the town of Cody was a two or three-day round trip.  Today, this way of life is less common – but it may be more necessary than ever.    


To the greatest extent possible, the Southfork Drifter Restaurant at Double Diamond X Ranch uses ranch-raised or locally produced foods such as pasture-raised organic chicken eggs, organic produce, locally raised grass-finished beef, organic poultry and pork products, and ranch-cured and smoked meats.  The food we offer our guests is the same food we feed our family.  We hope you enjoy!


Dinner is served 5:30 - 8:00 PM.  Please click here for the spring 2017 menu.  


We feature local beers, wines, and whiskey, cocktails, along with a selection of domestic and imported beers, wines, and spirits.  The saloon also has a gem of a pool table - an antique that was brought to Cody Country by Buffalo Bill himself as part of his historic Irma Hotel.  Come unwind in a truly western setting - the saloon is open daily at 4 PM or earlier upon request.
