This is exactly like you are back in college at the cafeteria. If that is what you expect when you go you will be fine. The prices are good as is the general selection. We went 1 night during our stay because it was walking distance from the RV park. The General Store is next store if you need any... More

We were able to dine here for two mornings as part of our tour group package. My husband and I were not very impressed with the breakfast. The staff was very friendly and even helpful. The cafeteria was clean and comfortable, it was just the food that was a bit below par. As to be expected, the food is prepared... More

Standard cafeteria. It served our purpose for a convenient meal close to our room at Yavapai lodge. Go here for a selection that should meet most needs, and a clean and efficient place to grab food and get back to the Park. Don't go here for a memorable meal on it's own. We had pasta, salad, and baked chicken meals.... More

Fair prices, good choice of healthy basics especially for breakfast. Limited evening options especially looking for healthy or vegetarian. Great location, good wifi.

The Maswick lodge provides adequate accommodation in a great location. My two adjoining rooms were part of a package deal which made them good value for a height of the season stop-over. The only downside to the basic but clean accommodation was the noise from the AC unit near the bed. The building containing the reception and dining areas was... More

We walked through once, it's standard junk food. We didn't even try it. Walk over to the store, the have a nice deli which can make sandwiches on gluten free bread!! Buy stuff at the store and eat at the deli!!!

We were impressed with the different food stations and the variety of foods available. This is the place to eat on a daily basis when in the park.

This is standard cafeteria food. It's slightly more expensive than normal but then you're at a tourist attraction so that's no surprise. If you are hungry and want to eat for a reasonable price then this is you place. If you want something that tastes great go somewhere else.

Overpriced, overcrowded, food bland. You're better off getting supplies from next door and using your room. Sooner or later, you'll have to hit one of the restaurants. This seemed better for fast food fare. I didn't eat the high end stuff, like ribs, but heard a lot of people complaining.

The Yavapai Cafeteria is another concession run by Xanterra and, as others have described, the food is just plain YUCKY. I honestly don't know what they could do to get eggs like that - cook them in giant batches and then let them sit and boil under heat lamps? Tasteless coffee to boot. ACROSS THE PARKING LOT THERE IS A... More
