Convenient dining in the Snow Lodge

We ate a the Snow Lodge on the day of our arrival. We didn't have reservations(highly recommend). The wait was about an 1 hr which I didn't think was too bad. The weather was rainy and cold so we decided to eat at the Obsidian as matter of convenience more than anything else. The service was... read more

FOOD: excellent breakfast. Wow - the Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon were made to perfection. Large, delicious portions on the French Toast Breakfast Plate and the Scrambled Eggs Du Jour Combo. Wasn't any more expensive than eating at any nice hotel dining room. Food most everywhere in the park is higher priced than outside the park, obviously, but we found... More

Ate dinner here, service was good and everyone enjoyed their meal. We had a tour to make and the waiter made sure we were out in time without rushing us.

We stayed in a wonderful room at the Old Faithful Inn, but has a terrible experience at the Obsidian restaurant at the Snow Lodge. If you're like me, when you read this you're going to want to discount it because my feedback is extreme, but I assure you it happened. My wife, 2 kids and I ate at this restaurant.... More

We ate at the Obsidian Dining Room one night for dinner and twice for breakfast. Overall, the food was passable, nothing stellar. For dinner, we had the Bison Burger and the Lamb Osso Buco with creamy polenta and root vegetables. Dinner was much better than breakfast. For breakfast, the way the food was presented it seemed as though just about... More

Excellent food and good staff. They didn't push our group to eat & run. We highly recommend this dining room!

This restaurant is a five minute walk from Old Faithful. It is located in the Old Faithful Snow Lodge. We had a good dinner here. My husband ordered the bison burger and I ordered beef tenderloin. Surprisingly this dinner tasted better than the two dinners we had at the Old Faithful Inn. The Obsidian Room breakfast food was average the... More

This place is serving room service /airline food without that pesky plane ticket. Its obvious that this is a nuke and go place as the dinners all come out under covers. you have about an 12 item selection with prices that will make your eyes water compared to anywhere not being run by a government contracted service provider. The greater... More
