Limited menu but good food

Both our dinners and breakfasts were great! I was very happy to see an egg white omelette on the breakfast menu. It was very good and my husband's breakfast (I forget what he had) was as well.

This was our first trip to yellowstone and chose the Obsidian Dining Room for dinner our first night. Everything about the experience was horrible. I really do not have one good thing to say. We visited in late June. The daytime temperatures were in the 90s and this place has no air conditioning. We asked for a window to be... More

Both breakfast and dinner meals were expensive and food prep was pitiful, true lack of how to cook and deliver food.

We dined here for both breakfast and dinner. After our mediocre breakfast experience, I was hesitant to eat here again. When some members of our party wanted a different menu option from the Old Faithful Dining room, we came here as it was the only other option at that hour since the grills close early. They don't take reservations, and... More

We had dinner in the Old Faithful Inn one night and decided to try the Obsidian Dining Room the next night since we were staying in the Snow Lodge. The prices and menu for the two restaurants was exactly the same but the food at the Obsidian was dreadful. The salmon I had the night before at the Inn was... More

Maybe it is because the season had just opened, but service was slow. It took 1 hour to order, eat, get the bill, and leave. The restaurant wasn't crowded, but it took her 15 minutes to take my order. Wait staff doesn't

We've stayed at the Old Faithful Inn twice in the past and never strayed across the parking lot to the Snow Lodge. What a mistake! The Obsidian turns out to be a hidden gem. We enjoyed several breakfasts and dinners here, and each meal was delicious. The Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon was my morning favorite. The short ribs were... More

The service was certainly not up to par. The waiters were wonderful but the restaurant was seriously understaffed. There were no people to bus the tables, clean plates, bring water, so the wait staff was over loaded. This did not make for a relaxing meal since service was way too slow.

Service was slow and not helpful. The dishes were overpriced for the quality offered. The choice was extremely limited and the quality of the ingredients let you have a belly ache the next day. Actually there is not much choice in the surroundings so try to get food from the grocery shop...

Much like the lodging, the management realized a long time ago that the tourists have very limited options and therefore selection and pricing are at the total discretion. If you describe a hamburger as a precisely ground portion of premium hand selected beef grilled specifically to your order you still get a hamburger that is tossed on the grill after... More
