To make a long story short: my wife nearly asked for divorce after having taken her to this place :-) More seriously: First they do not take reservation. It is on a walk-in basis but since they are absolutely unorganised you go there and they tell you what time to come back for the table (on the first evening they... More

Not a well organized kitchen or crew. I ordered the special and it arrived as though it was prepared an hour back, and was just worm at best, When I complained, the "manager" arrived and asked again, and I repeated myself. I received a new plate, very similar to the first one, not a good experience

Not a lot to say here since Trip Advisor will edit out the expletives that might better describe the disorganization, service, and food quality of this Canyon Village institution. The decor is drab, the windows afford no relaxing views, the lines are long, the service slow, and the food is decidedly mediocre. To endure such torment for such mediocrity at... More

Having dined here every year for the past five years, this Canyon Dining Room has improved. While enjoying a drink from the bar, we were seated in the dining room in a reasonable amount of time and our waiters were very courteous and fast. The menu is basically the same as it has been in previous years. The bison burger... More

Poor service, inept management. When we came in we were told we would have to wait, so we picked up the buzzer and headed to the lounge area. The only open tables were not wiped down but we sat there anyway. The waitress was good at avoiding us but I eventually flagged her down, and she came over chewing gum... More

The hostesses and servers are very friendly. We ate here on 2 consecutive nights, with 1 night I had the buffet (very good), while my wife had the beef burger (very bad). The 2nd night she had the soup/salad bar, which was good, and I had and meatloaf (excellent).

This area was older and not as up to date as other areas of Yellowstone. Stay at Canyon it is newer. The service in restaurant was good as was the the food, but nothing to write home about. You will enjoy all of Yellowstone.

Food was ok for what it was. They will be remodeling the whole building and hope they vastly improve the whole experience. Since you cannot book in advance and there are no many choices and this is the MOST crowded place in Yellowstone - just plan to wait a while, maybe have a cocktail and put up with it.

Good menu, easily affordable, alcohol available. This was our lunch spot when we followed the Grand Loop to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Food was good (we had bison burgers) and not as expensive as other dining rooms in the park.

We ate here six years ago and found it so delightful that we took pix of the restauant decor ans the dinner presentations. How sad that it no longer gets a positive review. Food selection is limited and not very fresh. The imaginative presentations of local,meats and veggies has given way to one cut above boring and predictable food fast... More
