Beautiful location for eating

Beautiful room and decent food. You may get lucky and see a bison outside like we did. The service is good and the lake is beautiful.

Some number of years ago - 17 to be exact - a visit to Lake Hotel and Dining Room was like a time machine journey to the early 20th Century: elegance, refinement, sophistication but with today's conveniences. I've reviewed the hotel separately, and it's my regrettable duty to report that the Dining Room this year continues a slide of several... More

The view was wonderful. The atmosphere just right. The bison tenderloin was cooked as ordered -- rare -- and very tender and tasty. Luckily, we were able to make reservations in person at 4 p.m. and were seated at 5:15 p.m.

This is the second time we have eaten at the Lake Yellowstone Hotel Dining Room. On both occasions we have enjoyed fabulous meals and great service. Our waiter was very charming and knowledgeable. The entire family was thrilled with the food and, of course, the ambiance at the hotel can't be beat. If you want to splurge on a meal... More

This was the most expensive but also best place we ate in Yellowstone. The bison filet was incredible, best I have ever had. The hotel was busy, service good but not fast due to number of diners. Great location in a beautiful old hotel.

My husband ordered the quail and was happy with it but not thrilled. I ordered the pork tenderloin, very bland so I returned it. I ordered the gluten free pasta with portobello mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes and added on shrimp. It came hot and tasty, acceptable.

We decided to eat breakfast at this place instead of the Lake Lodge Cafeteria, thinking it would be better. I think we probably should have tried the cafeteria instead. The minute we got to our table, I could tell the dining experience was not going to be very good. The silverware and glassware were all dirty. ALL of the glasses... More

It was the most expensive meal we had on our Yellowstone trip, but worth it. The food was good, the service was good and the beer on tap was cold and plentiful. After a lovely meal, we retired to the lobby, where we enjoyed the view of the lake with piano music from the nearby pianist.

Great breakfast buffet - standard eggs, waffles, bacon/sausage, fruit station, lox, assorted breads, yogurt, etc. Only $15/adult. I'd come back!

We were told a one hour wait at 6:30. We were seated at 8:39. That's a real miss in my book. Dinner took another hour to arrive. The place is overwhelmed and underserved. Not a fan.
