A restaurant and brewery that plays Kung Fu on the TV and hip hop over the speakers? Part brew pub/part Thai restaurant, we have Thai classics and our take on Thai fusion pub food, and the best beer on the planet…weird? Yeah, we know.
Newly remodeled in 2013, Thai Me Up is the home of Melvin Brewing. We’ve got 20 (yes, twenty) craft beers on tap. Our 3 barrel brewing system, The Shaolin Kloset, is tucked in the back of the restaurant enabling us to brew a fine line of cutting-edge West Coast ales and lagers. With numerous Great American Beer Festival medals and back-to-back Alpha King Championships as just a few of our beer accolades, we are bringing the Ruckus. We’ve been awarded the 2015 GABF Small Brewpub of the Year and 2017 Brewery Group of the Year.
Cozy. Sophisticated. Hip. Classic. King Sushi has it all, and those words don’t just describe the sushi spot’s newly renovated historic log cabin. They also apply to the food. Downtown Jackson’s newest restaurant is the place to dine as much for the atmosphere as it is for the food. King Sushi’s seasoned chef, Jason King, has trained with some of the best in the business. The result of his experience? A refined menu offering traditional and new-school sushi rolls and sashimi, alongside Japanese-style street food, such as noodle bowls, donburi (rice bowls), tempura and more. Find something for everyone, from the King roll with spicy hamachi, tempura jalapeño, tuna, tobiko and amazu to the scallop shooter with sea scallop, negi, tobiko uzura and ponzu. Enjoy happy hour from 4:30 to 6 p.m. or dinner daily.

The pizza starts with daily-made dough, perfected by owner Chris Hansen after years of experimenting with baking bread.

Try the Porcellino, with tomato sauce, mozzarella, pork sausage, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, roasted garlic and fresh sage.

Local is a modern American steakhouse and bar located on Jackson’s historic Town Square. The menu features both classic and specialty cuts of locally ranched meats and game in addition to fresh seafood, house-ground burgers and seasonally inspired eats. Owned and operated by chefs Will Bradof and Paul Wireman of Trio An American Bistro, Local showcases their enthusiasm for reviving the craft of in-house butchery, with a focus on dry-aged steaks and house-made sausages. Much of the beef comes from the Lockhart Cattle Company, whose grass-fed cows never leave the valley. Local offers a casual and vibrant bar atmosphere with 12 regional beers on draft as well as a relaxed dining room with a contemporary Western design. Local is the perfect spot to grab a burger for lunch or to have drinks and dinner with friends while you sit and watch the action on the Town Square.
In summer 2018, this historic Jackson soda fountain returned to the Town Square. Siblings Jessica, Nikki and Patrick Gill revived the business started by their great-grandfather, Bruce Porter, in 1919. Today, you wouldn’t know that the soda fountain closed its doors in 2001. Antique swivel barstools line a bar that holds a variety of house-made ice creams. Stacked into a sundae dish or swirled into an old-fashioned milkshake, these sweet treats are the cherry on top of a classic diner meal at Jackson Drug. Burgers sourced from the family’s ranch, the Jackson Hole Hereford Ranch, bring authentic meaning to the term farm-to-table. The Jackson community is thrilled to see Jackson Drug return to the Town Square and, with it, original menu items like the egg salad, chicken salad, chili and giant pretzels.
Trio is a downtown favorite. The atmosphere is hip, lively and inviting, like dining in a corner bistro in any big city. And the food? Some of the best in Jackson. Start dinner with a specialty cocktail, like the blood orange margarita. Then prepare to be impressed by chefs/owners Will Bradof and Paul Wireman, who pack the restaurant nightly with crowds seeking innovative dishes like the prosciutto and watermelon salad. The well-edited wine selection shows that Bradof and Wireman are just as good with their pairings as they are with their food. Reservations are a must, but if you find yourself without one, try to score a seat at the bar, a favorite spot for splitting a pizza, arugula salad and a bottle of Spanish red wine. There, you’re close enough to watch the action in the open kitchen.
Located inside the historic Wort Hotel, the Silver Dollar Bar & Grill is located right next to the Town Square.

There’s no better place to dine, people-watch and mingle than at the Silver Dollar Bar & Grill.
