You won't be disappointed

I liked it. Nice breakfast buffet, but you can also order a la carte even though this will take longer. Very nice dinner, even the wine was good. Certainly better than I expected for a restaurant inside a national park.

What can I say. You stay at the Snow Lodge so you don't have a lot of choice about where you can eat so this is the best there is! The food was warm at best, service was disappointing. In fact the waiter was rude when we told him the food was cold. On the second night it was better... More

Here in the winter so only place to eat. It is quite expensive and the food and service do not merit the price. It is not bad, just not worth what you have to pay to eat there.

We were traveling with a small group and very much enjoyed a before dinner drink followed by dinner in the Obsidian Room. Food was great, service was as good as any place, and the menu offerings were wonderful. They had a wide variety of meat, fish, lighter meals, and even a vegan offering. Wine selection was very decent. The salmon... More

Loved the Bison Short Ribs. Trout was a little overdone but nicely seasoned. Appetizer portions can be really large, make sure to ask how many the appetizer serves.

We ate here one night while we are at the Snow Lodge. My husband ordered the prime rib and French onion soup, and my daughter and tomato bisque soup, and I ordered the salmon tostada and house salad. The food was good but, we have had better at other restaurants. The service was efficient and waitress was friendly. We also... More

The restaurant's rustic decor matches the theme seen around Yellowstone National Park. Lots of windows let in the scant winter light. The food is pretty good and the prices seem fairly reasonable compared to other US National Park eateries.

There were not a lot of choices in Yellowstone our dinner in early October, so we ended up here. We were happy that we only had one evening to eat here. The service was totally unacceptable. It took FOREVER to get served and then to pay the bill at the end of the meal. We shared the mixed sausage appetizer--it... More

Aside from the fast food grill, this was the only restaurant open during our stay. Our favorite foods were the bison chili, hot wings, waffle fries, and child's menu bowtie pasta with butter. We tried some larger, fancier meals (prime rib, beef tenderloin, mussels), but they all seemed to fall flat, especially for the price. The bison burger was good,... More
