About the Owners

Our names are Kory (Steele) and Amanda (Jo) Edelmayer, and we hail from Roberts, Idaho. We’ve been married since October 28, 1995. We are avid outdoor Idaho people. Hunting, fishing, jet boating, razor riding, and rafting are just a way of life for us. Snowmobiling in Bone is one of our favorite pastimes.

We fell in love with Bone many years ago after our beloved friends Mandy Jo and Chris Blake bought and remodeled the place. We spent many a day and night up here sanding, tiling, landscaping, smokin’ meat, and drinkin’ beers with them. We even started the first off-road rally with them called, “Brody’s Ride for MDA.” Truly, those are some of our most treasured memories. The legacy they created is one we want to carry on.

As Steele and Jo, we have been through many adventures together and this is just one more for the bucket list. We have four children: Clint (married to Kaylee), Hadley Steele (engaged to Mariya), Sydney Jo, and Bridger Ray—all of whom you will see working here on occasion. You’ll even find that Steele and Jo, along with Grandma Pat are regulars behind the counter!

We love our tribe and are excited to have you be part of it. We welcome all tribal members to come and take in the uniqueness of Steele-N-Jo’s Bone—Where your heart feels at home!

The History of Bone

Bone was founded by Orion Yost Bone, who settled southeast of Idaho Falls around 1910. He found a need for a general store in his new community, so he moved a schoolhouse from Birch Creek to Bone and named it the Bone Store.

The Bone Store has experienced several transformations over the years and has changed ownership numerous times. Each owner has brought their own unique atmosphere. One thing that has stayed the same is the connection vibe that has given everyone a sense of belonging and feeling of home. We purchased The Bone Store from Mandy Jo and the late Chris Blake. They remodeled the venue significantly in 2011 and brought about an entirely different type of charm and enchantment.

Their vision was to create a destination where people could come and relax, visit, enjoy some good music, great food, and ice-cold drinks. We intend to carry on with their legacy; while adding a few nuances of our own.

We know our place will always be known as The Bone Store. The brands that adorn the ceiling tell the treasured tale of the ranchers who have left their mark since the mid-1900s.The long-time tradition of putting dollar bills on the ceiling continues to this day as a way of telling stories, making memories, and saying “I was here” for many who have come to call Bone their home away from home. Like the brands and dollar bills on the ceiling, we’ve put our brand on the wall. The brand of Steel-n-Jo’s Bone is inclusive of connection, belonging, and value of time. We left off store, bar, pub, grill, etc on purpose. We are Bone, where your heart feels at home. There is something for everyone here. C’mon up and experience the connection vibe for yourself.
