Yellowstone Garage Bar & Grill closed its doors earlier this year when owner John Huff announced that he made the decision to close the eatery, due to COVID-19.

Huff took to Facebook to make the announcement, stating that the Garage was the hardest business he had ever worked in.

Well I finally made the decision to close the Yellowstone Garage. It was the hardest business I ever got into, especially with the covid episode.
My heart is heavy and I feel like I have let everyone down because I never figured out how to make it work financially.
I have to say, those who are in this business and understand what it takes have my total respect and admiration.

Thanks to my employees, customers, businesses, musicians, family and everyone else who supported us throughout this adventure.

It was a sad day for car enthusiasts, fans of live music, and hungry Casperites who loved the vibes and the food and drink options that the Yellowstone Garage offered.

The closing of Yellowstone Garage also resulted in the eventual conclusion of Rock the Block, though the weekly concert series did try to hang on a little longer.

Now, however, there's good news. Yellowstone Garage announced on Facebook that it is now under new ownership and is opening in the near future!

It's also searching for new wait-staff.

That comes from an announcement on the Yellowstone Garage Facebook page.

Yellowstone Garage Bar and Grill is under new ownership!
We are seeking friendly, high-energy front of house wait staff.

Final Rock the Block is the End of an Era

For years, Rock the Block had been a staple a summer nights in Downtown Casper. Stationed outside of Yellowstone Bar & Grill, Rock the Block was a chance for the community to come out, eat some food, drink some beer, listen to music and, most importantly, spend some time together.
