We wanted to eat in the Wildlife Center to facilitate a continuing tour in the afternoon. The food was excellent and the view alone was worth the stop.

The view is worth it by itself. But, if you are hungry, the Phila cheese steak is pretty darn close to the original.

Just a simple snack shop with drinks, snacks, and sandwiches. The deck is awesome. Really wonderful view. Great staff, clean. Loved it.

The food isn't anything to write home about but it is tasty! We always eat here when we come to Fossil Rim. If you sit inside you are really missing out! I recommend sitting outside and taking in the view. We will be back for sure!

The view at this café is remarkable. Spend some quality time just sitting. The food is not great but nice place to sit.

There was a nice variety of food for a cafe and the prices were comparative to most fast food restaurants. Really my only complaint was lack of lids for drinks.

The food is pretty good, for what it is. They have hamburgers,hot dogs and wraps. The cafe is a little pricey but it's convenient and has a great view.

I was glad to find that this restaurant exists in Fossil Rim as it it made finding a place for lunch easy. It's basically a hamburger joint with some other selections. The food was not only good but the prices were more than reasonable considering they have somewhat of a captive clientele.

Excellent hamburgers at a fair price and a great view. This is a great place to stop and eat halfway through Fossil Rim. You can drive directly to it if you dont want to go on the tour.

It's good at what it does with the food they provide (burgers and such). Prices were a little high, but the food was good and the staff very friendly. Plus the money helps Fossil Rim, which is good.
