Lunch and dinner in/around GTNP??

We will be there for a couple of days with our 16 yr. old son (not a picky eater). I am looking for good food, outside deck, great view, not too fancy but good. I am thinking maybe Jackson Lake Lodge (not the mural room but one of the more casual areas), Mangy Moose, Calico...not really in the mood for a chuckwagon. Any ideas???

Lunch options in the park:

Signal Mountain Lodge has a good view- the menu is pretty casual, we usually get the "mountain of nachos."

Jenny Lake Lodge is our favorite for lunch- the chocolate spoon cake is amazing, but you will need to make a reservation (call the day before and you should be fine). No outside deck, but the setting is beautiful- especially if you can get a table near the windows. Lunch is much less fancy and less expensive than dinner (we always wear our hiking clothes).

Dornan's Pizza and Pasta is pretty good, and the view from the deck is really great.

I haven't eaten at Jackson Lake Lodge, but you can't go wrong with the view there.

For dinner, my favorites are Snake River Brewery (in Jackson), Nora's Fish Creek Inn (in Wilson, make a reservation), Billy's Burgers (in town, cheap burgers & cowboy atmosphere). When we stayed in Teton Village, we ate at Calico and really enjoyed it. The BBQ place next door is supposed to be good as well.

We liked the Ranch House at Colter Bay real well. Really good food and not over the top expensive. No view from the restaurant, but can walk around outside by the lake. gtlc.com/dining/colter-bay-village-ranch-hou…

For an outside deck, and great view - don't forget to take the Gondola (free after 4:30) up to mid mountain at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. There are at least two-three different dining options from the casual to Coulior, which is very nice - reservations recommended.

Is the Gondola the same or different to the aerial tram? I noticed that the aerial tram is $29 per person - do you think it is worth it? It seems pretty expensive.

That sounds like something our 16 yr old would really enjoy! Thanks Blue Bird!

The tram is scenic. With the exception of some waffles- no food to speak of. The view is worth it. 360 degree views on top of a mountain. Check out the reviews on tripadvisor. But its not a place to seek out to simply eat.

The "Gondy", as we affectionately call it, is mid mountain, views down and to the East. Wonderful food opportunities.
