O.k. food considering it's next to the pricey full-service restaurant. Buffet-style set-up with some packaged and some cooked-to-order items.

The nachos with beef had a cut up hamburger on them! The burgers were greasy! The cafe was dirty! Way over priced, but so is everything in the National Park areas!

The way to understand the kind of food you will find at the Cafe Court is to imagine that the teenagers at the concession stand at your local multiplex movie theatre have prepared your meal. In other words: a congealing mass of phosphorescent orange Velveeta and the cheapest, most tasteless chips are “nachos.” Some lettuce over which canned ingredients have... More

I am usually OK with about whatever I order, but my nachos were just bad. I don't know how that's possible. I got the beef nachos and it was chunks of a grilled hamburger, which was just kinda weird and didn't taste all that good with the liquid concession stand nacho cheese. My 13-year-old boy didn't finish his cheeseburger --... More

The food was ok for the price, would have like more chooses. My husband got the 7up one night and it did not have any flavor, they did not have everything on their menu.. The service was fast.

We waited 45 minutes for an order of cheese quesadilla and pasta with butter. We were told that the machine ate up our ticket. The waitress laughed when we said we expected better service, so we asked for a supervisor who never showed up. Another person had waited an hour for his burger and fries. We asked for our food...

The prices in the cafeteria are a little high. After all our quick meals on our road trip this place always went out of their way to please. The chili and soups were wonderfully hearty. If we go back next summer these will be my meals.

Food not all that great. Mostly store bought stuff. Nothing really made on sight. Good beer selection and Starbucks coffee both were a plus. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Place is very clean.

We decided to have lunch here whilst waiting for our mini cruise across Jackson Lake. Recommend that you order a salad or something you don't have to wait for. There were only two people cooking and it took a long time to get our food. My husband ended up eating his burrito while walking back to the dock.

This place is overpriced.. which is typical of National Park food but one of the worst restaurants I've ever had in a National Park. The food was awful and so mediocre. I wouldn't mind paying overpriced food if it was decent but it wasn't even decent. Do not waste your time here. I will not be returning.
