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!

WOW! The food here was so much better than the Xanterra food found in the rest of the park, we wished we would have found the restaurant in the back of this gift shop sooner! It is run by an independent company and the only competitor to Xanterra. The Hamilton Store serves great burgers, chicken sandwiches, and amazing fries. They... More

Better than other options in OF area, but nothing that great. We weren't able to get reservations at OF dining room earlier than 9:45 pm so we opted for this. Relatively quick service. Had a old fashioned soda fountain bar you could eat at. It is in the middle of gift shop/grocery so there is a lot of foot traffic.... More

I originally found this "store" on Yelp while looking for places to eat in Yellowstone. True, the building does house a store, but it also contains a diner and gift shop. This facility is not noted in most travel guides and even once you arrive in the Old Faithful area, you will not find reference to it. From the main... More
