Can't Scramble an Egg

We only had time for a quick breakfast, and we found this at the cafeteria. I was a little surprised at their limited options - their were out of the liquid egg mix they use, so though you could get fried eggs, you couldn't get scrambled. How hard is it to scramble an egg?

We walked in after talking to a cook who suggested the burritos. We walked OUT. The beans were dried out. The food all looked like it had been sitting there all day. We went next door to the Lounge. It was OK

To-order breakfast for 5 took TWO HOURS! Skip this place and go to the grill or deli. Dinner was not much better. Wait staff friendly but attentive enough. Obviously there was a major problem in the kitchen.

The food was pretty good, but I give bonus marks for trying to go beyond traditional park faire. Veggies were fresh and pork roast was reasonably moist.

Although we were able to get our meal quickly, we hit the cafeteria within 30 minutes of closing time (I think 8:30 or 9:00) and they were already out of most of the food. There were not many choices and the quality of what we got was average.

It was like an old 50's diner sort of, and the portions on the burgers and grilled chicken were Big! Good Fries! The salad was just meh and more like cafeteria food but the sandwiches were great!

Well after a full day of hiking the hearty food hit the spot. 23.00 for two people but we were full. There were many choices on the menu. The staff was very friendly and nice. The large dining room gave amble seating.

Reasonable prices, nice people, and an assorted menu. The tables were clean and unlimited soda refills.

The 60s called....they want their interior back! That is what I think of this place. The location can't be beat as it's central in YNP but it needs to be updated to reflect more current times! Food was OK...traditional cafeteria fare. For a better experience, go to the soda fountain in the general store next door. Awesome ice cream!
