Alright Stop for Dinner

It is cafeteria style so you need to keep in mind it isn't going to be the best quality, but overall it was alright. I wouldn't recommend the fajitas since the cost $9.50 and you don't get much filling of rice or beans. However everything else r was an alright deal.

This Restaurant in Canyon Village is suitable for Quick Bite in between your visits to various Scenic Spots. Though the menu is limited it serves the purpose. The Service is fast and prices Reasonable. We had both Lunch and Dinner here and liked it .

This is a cute little 50's looking diner w/horseshoe counters & round backless stolls, situated inside the Canyon Village General Store. This is an inepensive eatery to get breakfast opposed to the dinning rm (more expensive) or cafeteria (how long have those eggs been in that chafing dish). Cooked to order, basic breakfast food, eggs, ham, sausage, toast, cereal etc.... More

We stopped for a lunch at the dining room, but it was not open. Decided to go to the cafeteria after asking a clerk about food. I had a meal and my wife had a wrap. Both were reasonably priced and surprisingly tasty. Service was quick and there was ample room to sit.

Offerings were limited at the Canyon Lodge Cafeteria. However, what they offered was reasonably priced and tasty. I had a bowl of chili. The chili was a little too mildly spiced for my taste but it was good and they added a few extra jalapenos to spice it up upon request,

Should have eaten here for breakfast more days, It is the same kitchen as the Canyon Lodge Dinning Room but the prices are better and it it was faster. The prices are still high but you have to expect that when staying in a National Park.

My family and I ate here after declining to wait over an hour for the Canyon Dining Room. We were able to get our food and sit quickly. The food is fine with many choices available. The prices are a bit higher than you would pay at home but this is a remote National Park setting so competition is limited.... More

See plenty of negatives here...not sure I get it...you are in a National Park miles from anywhere...(5-star is in Paris!!) Needed quick as we still had plenty of park to see, so we chose this...had bison sloppy joe (just had to) and thought it was excellent. Staff was very friendly. Would eat here again, and just might tomorrow.

Food average, not that special for the prices they charge. Small portions, like they are afraid to give you something. Nice area to eat, clean and orderly. Better to eat @ The General Stores, friendlier people and lot better food !!

Employees were very efficient, but food was overpriced and just average. Serving lines were confusing - salads one line, park favorites like burgers another line - wraps and ethnic food another line - etc.
