My husband, adult daughter, and I were thrilled to be dining in this lovely historic hotel, and were so disappointed by the very lackluster meal and inattentive service. Our reservation wasn't ready, so we got a sub-standard table right in the middle of a busy traffic flow. The waitress took our orders for the supposedly elegant buffet ($30 p/person), and... More

We visited this interesting yellow original hotel right at the Lake. We did not stay overnight. I never heard about it. The history on it is interesting. It has a strange, old, expanse feeling when you enter like you are entering into a different time era of long past. To be honest it reminded me of that huge hotel from... More

Elegant atmosphere, simply perfect, food and service. Not only the best restaurant in the Park, could be the best restaurant in Wyoming. Reservations recommended; parking ample. Arrive for dinner early and lounge in the spacious elegant lobby overlooking the picturesque Lake Yellowstone. Ask to borrow free board games from the front desk, have a libation.

We drove from Old Faithful, around to the Lake Yellowstone area, arriving in need of a late breakfast. They were within 15 minutes of closing the breakfast service but welcomed us. We had the buffet which was still well-stocked. They were cleaning up all around us -- it is a very large dining room -- and I think instead of... More

We had four of us dining after a day in the Park. The men each had hamburgers which they definitely enjoyed. The women had lobster ravioli and pear salad and both were very good. Service was slow but still would recommend dining here.

We ate here for lunch after a nice morning of hiking around the lake. The setting is absolutely fantastic and just takes you back to another era. The service was very friendly and efficient. And the food was excellent. Bison Burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, bison and mushroom pasta, it was all excellent. Definitely the best meal we had in the... More

We made a reservation by phone about two weeks before we arrived. The restaurant was busy, but service was very good. A buffet was available, but at $30 I thought it was too expensive. Our meals were about half that. I had a large bowl of Orecchiette which satisfied my appetite. Afterwards we listened to a string quartet play in... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Lake Hotel. The hotel was beautiful, and we had a first floor room with a lake view. We paid around $360.00 a night, but we booked late- it was a last minute trip- and we called at the right time to get a recent cancellation. The food was O.K., as... More
