First: Make sure you get a red pass from a ranger at the park entrance, the visitor center or the museum. This allows you to drive up in your car and park at the lodge. They will issue it if you tell them the time of your reservation [they do take reservations]. This is especially important if you are there before the park trams switch to their summer schedule when they service the lodge until a later time.
Second: Eat outside. You are here for the beautiful view.
It is a little pretentious to have to go through a ground floor hostess and then a second floor hostess to get seated, but I guess they have a reason.
The food is good, but not fancy or designed to impress with a list of ingredients that don't really go together. Just straight American cuisine including fresh Utah trout.
Service could be more attentive considering it wasn't that busy when we were here in mid-May.
