Food was non-discript, my meatloaf, while a huge portion was very dry and I ate only half. The salad bar, seemed to have fresh vegetables.

After the bad experience with the cafeteria it was a relief to find this restaurant close by. We had 3 meals here, one breakfast and tow dinners and all were very tasty and well-prepared. Considering the good quality of food and the location, the prices are not too bad. Service was fast and friendly.

Came here for a quick breakfast. Service was efficient though one small snafu on my order hence I docked a star. Food was very good and price reasonable for being inside the park. Recommended for a good fill up before a hard day of exploring.

We took the wonderful free tour of the Lodge, and then had lunch in the dining room. Lovely waiting staff (thank you Denise) who were chatty and professional. The restaurant was comfortable, and upmarket, in keeping with the ambience of the hotel. We both had the bolognese pasta (small portions as it was lunchtime), 2 small salads, a beer and... More

Mostly sandwiches & burgers. Had a chicken roll up. Was OK. Has a great view of Old Faithful. Good spot if you don't want to stand with the crowds to watch the geyser go off. Plan lunch/dinner around eruption time.

Short walk from the Old Faithful Inn. Food was just OK. Service was good. Menu was varied & included meat, poultry, fish & vegetarian. In general there is not much choice inside the park.

Good food, excellent service, a much better choice on all counts than the dining room at the Old Faithful Inn.

Skip the long lines and OK food at the main lodge at Old Faithful and eat in the Obsidian Room. Same Xanterra food but better service and no lines.

After being seated it took our server ten minutes to arrive. She took our drink order and asked if we were ready to order our entree. This seemed to be a nicer sit-down restaurant not a cafe. We ordered an appetizer and it came with our meal. Our water glasses were never filled and my husband got only one cup... More

Dinner was the best I've had in Yellowstone. Services was fast and friendly. Highly recommend the Thai Peanut Pasta with Shrimp, Bison Short Ribs, and Blueberry Scones with Vanilla Ice Cream. Yummy!
