You need to make a reservation here, but even when doing so well in advance you are only offered times around 5pm or after 9pm. It is a large restaurant and serves from 5-10pm every night, but it struggles to handle the demand. The food is good, but people have very few alternatives near by. So they struggle to meet... More

Pricey, with slow service. However our meals were great. The food and wine selection exceeded my (low) expectations for a national park. The salmon tartare and pear salad were amazing. The breakfast buffet was good too.

Very, very, very, very expensive place to stay in a national park. At $400 a night, I'd expect more amenities (chocolate on the pillow, pool, workout room, wifi, back rub, HDTV, etc.). But considering we we staying at a NP, I guess they can sell the ambiance... It is a pretty building, with a very opulent feel, music, nice staff.... More

Decided to treat ourselves to 1 "nice" night of dining during our 1 week stay at Yellowstone. 1st problem: after a reasonable wait, our waiter dropped our entire order on the floor. Accidents happen, but a manager never even bothered stopping by to apologize for the delay or ask if there was anything they could do while we waited for... More

We stayed at Lake Yellowstone Hotel this past week with our two grandsons, 9 and 10 years old. We ate at the hotel dining room all three nights in part because one of the boys needs to eat gluten-free and the menu offered some great choices. We had early reservations on all three nights but could not get out of... More

Just wasn't that impressed for what is supposed to be one of the nicest restaurants in the park. The Caesar Salad was so drowned in salad dressing I couldn't eat it, and the croutons were regular boxed variety. Mentioned the drowning to the waitress as a heads up who didn't seem to care in the least. Had the duck and... More

This is a really good breakfast buffet and for the price, it was a good value. We didn't stay at the Hotel, but wanted to see it, so was able to take in the view while dining. We stayed at Canyon the night before and it was a fairly quick drive to get to the buffet driving through Hayden Valley.... More

We walked in at 6pm. 6.30 pm we got a reservation for 8.45 pm! Well ok we thought, we didn't have a previous reservation so we waited. And waited. And waited. At 9.30 we still weren't seated. At 10pm we were tipped off by the fantastic bartenders Berlyyn and Dillon we could order takeout on a plate and eat at... More

Overall, our dining experiences in Yellowstone NP exceeded all of our expectations. The only disappointment was one breakfast in a cafeteria. Otherwise, we were remarkably pleased. We stayed at the Lake Lodge Cabins and were within minutes of the Lake Hotel. We dined there for breakfast 3 times and dinner 4. Every meal was lovely and well executed. Service was... More

We made reservations for Fathers Day. Our family was seated by the window and the view was spectacular. The dinning room is charming and you seem to step back in time. The service was standoffish but we got what we needed and it did not dampen our mood. We chose the buffet so we could try multiple entrees. The offerings... More
