Friendly staff.

The staff here is very friendly. Prices are reasonable for location. Menu remains the same and is heavy on meat. Sometimes the food was served cold. Cold eggs at breakfast buffet. My spaghetti squash was cold. Water service normally good, but could be poor when we were seated in the back corner. Be... read more

The food is very good and the wait staff are exceptional. Try their waffle fries (with sauce on the side); especially yummy when it's cold outside. And the huckleberry hot chocolate -- delicious! A must try!

During our 4 day stay in Snow Lodge we used this dining room a lot since there is really no other option for meals. Food was good for the most part, do not order cheesecake or chocolate cake - they were old and very hard like left overs from last summer. Bison meals were delicious, as well soups. For breakfast...

Staff are always super friendly and helpful; great attitudes. (This is amazing considering we are a captive audience.) Service is a little slow, but we think that's the kitchen; staff are always busy moving about. Try the Bison dishes; tenderloin and burger for sure. The Belgian Hot Chocolate is to die for; a must. (Add a shot of the huckleberry... More

In stark contrast to the Old Faithful Inn dining room, this restaurant is just mediocre. The hostess set the tone with a sullen look and unfriendly manner. The server was inattentive, and the food was just OK. I wouldn't choose this venue.

We ate many times at the Obsidian Dining Room and every meal was fresh, well- prepared, and very good. The service was generally excellent. We ate four or five breakfasts and dinners each there. The spinach salad and French onion soup became main stays. The bison ribs, tenderloin, pork, chicken, and linguini were all very good. The dessert Yellowstone Caldera... More

We dined here three times during our stay. On each occasion the food was surprisingly good- well prepared and nicely served. The trout, chicken and bison burger were all very good. We also had breakfast here each morning. Again the food was tasty and service fast and friendly.

We decided on my birthday to check out this restaurant located in the old faithful snow lodge inn. We had the short rib bison plate with a spinach salad. Excellent to say the least - big hit with us. The aumbience was excellent and we had great service. Now for the "miss" part. We liked it so much the first... More

Limited menu. Food was decent, but overpriced in my opinion. Servers were friendly but service was rather slow. Not many choices as far as places to eat when you are miles from the nearest town.
