We went on a chuck wagon dinner excursion and really enjoyed it. Our wagon driver and guide were fun and informative. The food was delicious and served family style at our destination. A black bear was spotted near the dinner spot and the wranglers chased it away!

I agree with another review about the former food court. There aren't that many cheap options for food in this mall. This mall has generally high end stores along with a couple of more affordable anchors. I wish there was a Nordstrom's here; I often go to Old Orchard for stores that aren't at this mall.

This is a must stop before heading into Yellowstone. This educational facility cares for grizzlies, wolves and other wildlife that cannot survive in the wild. You will hear wolves howling occasionally and the bears are rotated through an exhibit every hour or so. You will see them forage for food during this time.
