The Snow Lodge is right next door to the Old Faithful Inn. We stayed at the Inn. After so many days of eating at the Inn's dining room, we walked next door for a change. Pleasantly surprised that the menu was quite different. The Lodge is newer, the ambiance is different but quite nice. Food was good, and service was... More

We got the game sausage sampler for an appetizer, it was very good, it was made of of wild boar sausage, bison sausage and pheasant and chicken sausage. For my meal I had the braised lamb with root vegetables and polenta. Everything tasted great except I was a little disappointed in the polenta. My boyfriend had the bison short ribs... More

We went to the Obsidian Dining Room for breakfast one morning. Despite the fact the dining room was not crowded, it took forever for our waiter to greet and take our drink order, and longer before our food came. Then we had trouble getting his attention again to get our check. Food was not bad, but it didn't make up... More

Although a set and rather short menu the lamb cut changes daily so could be leg of lamb, pulled lamb etc. The bison burger was good but cooked medium might be a bit bloody for some palates. Bison ribs was delicious. We had 3 dinners and 1 breakfast. Servers were very friendly in general apart from the bread lady who... More

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.
