We had three days of breakfast, lunch and dinners here. The staff is very nice and accommodating. While the dining room is a bit tired and need of refreshing, it's comfortable. The menu is fairly typical for what you will find in the area. Breakfast is good (though I would avoid the banal buffet), lunch has good offerings, and dinner... More

While staying at the Snow Lodge for several nights, we ate at the Obsidian Dining Room 3 meals a day. We had read several reviews indicating that the food was not that great, so we had no expectations. But WOW! It was superb -- equal to many fine dining restaurants we've been too. Prices were reasonable, considering you're in a... More

This is the main dining room at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge. The service is prompt and friendly and the food is quite good. Full bar for those cold winter nights.

We ate here for two dinners and breakfast. The food is good and there are some nice unique dishes (bison, elk, etc). The wine list is fairly extensive. The service is always friendly and prompt. The dining room is always busy but never seems overly noisy.

We were delegated to a time for dinner and the service was slow. The staff was prompt in taking the order but the wait was long. The dining room is pleasant but very dark. Several of the meals ordered were not cooked properly or were so spicy they weren't good. Once one was served, no one came back to check... More

A friend and I ate several meals here during a 3 day stay. The food and service were surprisingly above-average, given the captive audience. I had the breakfast buffet one day and it was typical of hotel breakfast buffets, with the usual offerings (scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, etc). The buffet food was fresh--but the restaurant was jammed so this is... More

Crowded, noisy and a number of menu options were sold out already at 6:45 pm. Server was attentive and pleasant. Wait for food was long - kitchen seemed overwhelmed. Food quality and preparation were average.

Getting more vegetarian choices but menu is limited. The location prevents lots of choices but perhaps there could be a nightly special. The polenta fritter was good but expensive. The prime rib was good and so was the trout. Christmas dinner portions especially and portions in general are small considering we were hungry from all the hiking. The spicy peanut... More
