The upper geyser basin is one the best ways to spend the day in the world. One of the best ways to unwind is with an old fashioned burger, fries and a shake. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy one of Yellowstone's bests after enjoying God's best.

Stopped in for ice cream after reading reviews. Fun counter for the kids to sit and have dessert. The vanilla malt was delicious.

Most of the restaurants in Yellowstone are very overpriced, but this one takes the cake. We ordered classic breakfast with ham. The hash browns were not browned, and were soggy. The eggs were barely recognizable, and the ham was the little rounds that you put on pizza. With a price of over $9, you would thing you would get more... More

Always crowded when the park is full but the service is as good as it gets. Much better than the Lodge cafeteria with food worth paying for. Great breakfast and sandwiches. Nothing in the park is cheap but the prices here are decent. My favorite is the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich.

Only had ice cream (tasty Mountain Berry) at the store - but very good and quite large for the price. The prices for T shirts and gifts are clearly the best in the park. There are General Stores at numerous locations in the park (e.g., Fishing Bridge, Lake) and all are run by the same company (not Xanterra) and offer... More

You have to look to see this store and diner but it is well worth it. As previously stated by many other reviewers the place is not owned by Xanterra and was privately owned for almost 100 years until Delaware North bought it. The old fashioned soda fountain counter and stools take you back to a time gone by where... More

Kids loved the "old" malt shop look to the counter. Was nice to sit at counter & visit with the servers & cooks. Food was okay & kids loved the ice cream we ordered after dinner.

Enjoyed our breakfast here. Easy walk over from Old faithful lodge. Great price for inside the park. Think similar to a Waffle House. His breakfast for a good price. And great service. I would not hesitate to return.

We were lucky to grab a table next to the lunch counter. Incredibly busy and chaotic. Our waiter was great, the food was average, and the price as expected. Unfortunately, they have products for purchase displayed behind the tables, so while you're eating, someone is standing next to you browsing the goods ... Awkward!
