As with many of our fellow travelers we stayed at the Inn but ate here. No reservations required. The food is equal to the Inn but the service is much better. We had two dinners and one breakfast here. The prices are Xanterra typical, but the trout and lamb were good. If you plan to eat right before a scheduled... More

We had breakfast here one morning. The service was very slow and after ordering the food it was also very slow to arrive. My pancakes were the worst I have ever had during my many trips to the USA, they were very dry. I did like the Huckleberry syrup though! My husband's Eggs Benedict was just OK. We were very... More

Didn't expect much but the entire experience was excellent. The menu isn't extensive and entrée prices range $15-$25. The Bison Ribs were great. Have nothing to compare it to because this was the first we had them. The lamb dish one night consisted of two chops and "lamb leg" (not leg-of-lamb) which was somewhat stringy. It was good but there's... More

My husband and I ate here during our stay at Old Faithful Inn. They don't take reservations, but we were seated after a short wait in the bar. The restaurant was busy but service was fast and friendly. We sat a tables along the wall and I thought they were a little close to other tables as I could here... More

I agree with other posters that this meal was much better than it's neighbor, the dining room at the Inn. They don't take reservations, so we did have a 20 minute wait, but there is a bar adjacent that is a great place to wait for a table. Food was good, not spectacular, Service was fair. I am wondering if... More

This restaurant is located in Snow Lodge, a short walk from Old Faithful Inn. No reservations, first come first serve. Great Buffalo Burger.

It might have been our menu selections, but both of our meals were better than the ones in the more highly rated Old Faithful Inn on the other side of the parking lot. It was also good for breakfast and not unreasonably priced if you select the right items. The buffet is probably overpriced unless you are a really big... More

The only eatery we found in YNP (not that we searched exhaustively) which sat somewhere between cafe and fine dining. Just a nice sit-down restaurant. My wife had slow-cooked leg of lamb whilst I had pork cordon bleu. Both good. Plenty of wine choices. A nice meal. Oh they don't take reservations so be prepared to go and put your... More

We ate one dinner, two breakfasts, and got two days of box lunches through the Obsidian. Much, much better value than the Old Faithful Inn, much more intimate, very friendly and gracious staff. it's a busy place, so, try and get there a little early!

Last month, on our annual day trip from Big Sky, Montana to Yellowstone Park, we stayed so late in the park that it was really too late to return to Big Sky or for that matter, one of main street restaurants in West Yellowstone. We sought out a restaurant in the park that might provide a bit of a higher... More
