Shut in winter

do not think you can buy anything in the park in winter,nor can you expect to find a rubbish bin in winter. Yet there are flush toilets and a warm area to eat the food you bought with you.

We went here a couple of times, once for quick snack in the afternoon and the other for breakfast. Both times we could not fault it, quick and very friendly with the added bonus of nice food and at a reasonable price. Staff were excellent

We stopped for lunch here 2 days. It was quick, convenient, & good for cafeteria food. We had grilled BBQ chicken which was moist. We ate outside on the porch to enjoy the view. The location can't be beat.

If you're hungry and would rather spend $20 than $25, the Canyon Lodge Cafeteria is a great alternative to the Canyon Lodge restaurant. I got a Mahi sandwich and it was very flavorful. Lots of seating in here, and again, plenty of options.

We went to the Cafeteria for breakfast and there was a large selection of both hot and cold food. The service was excellent and the servers were all very friendly. The food at all of the meals is a little pricey but it is something that isn't done every day. Enjoy the meal and forget about the price.

We ate dinner here before touring the Terraces. Entry is at corner of building closest to the Terraces. Pleasant airy space with lots of windows. Menu is burgers and such, with a decent selection. Service is pretty quick, since burgers are pre-made and ready for staff to put onto trays. Family appreciated the self-serve fountain drinks. There is a condiment... More

So, I am just disgusted with every park eatery and all food available in the park. Yellowstone is really special and is spoiled by rotten service and even worse food options. Bring your own. It's really terrible.

We found ourselves with two starving children fresh from an exhausting hike on our first night in Yellowstone. The hot food options are limited - soup, hotdog, or chilli dog - but the service staff are charming and mindful that everyone is there as a last resort - not wanting to wait for a spot in the dining room where...

Food is good, if not great. Typical of all the sites in Yellowstone. Pricey for a burger, but it's all part of the Park experience. Can be pretty noisey, but you can certainly get food to go and find a picnic spot if you want.

If you're staying at Mammoth or driving through this is ok. Nothing special. Fairly fqast service. We were there on Labor Day weekend, so it was extremely crowded and noisy, so we left, but ate lunch there after Labor Day and least it was quieter. Better off driving 5 miles up the road to Gardiner.
