“Delicious cowboy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We stopped here for dinner while visiting Grand Tetons NP. The buffet was served in cast iron Dutch ovens in front of a roaring trench fire. Pretty cool but a little smoky- made your eyes tear up if you dawdled in one spot long enough. The food was great; salad bar, dessert and basic beverages included. See the website for the menu; it was $18pp. There were other items on the menu besides buffet; our daughter got the panfried trout- delicious. You eat outside under a pavilion, at tables in the sun or in a huge teepee. Nice place.

“Great food - huge portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

This was an excellent place to stop for lunch and was less busy than the pizza place! Plus - it has a wonderful view! Food was tasty - burgers were huge, sandwiches were more than one person should eat - but delicious!

“When you're hungry....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

After hiking in the Tetons before going back into Teton Village, it's the closest place to stop! We've dined here every year; it's sort of a "necessary evil". The sandwiches - burgers and such are just adequate. They do cater to vegetarians, vegans and those who like burgers and chicken so I'll give them credit for having food for all types of palates. With the sandwich you get chips. slaw or soup; sometimes the soup is a hit (although the serving is sooo small!) and sometimes it's a miss (not everyone likes ham and bean-especially if you don't eat meat!). So, with that, you do get a decent sandwich and a side and unlimited refills. The service is a bit slow. The food is good but I'd would have preferred a better selection had we gone into Jackson. Still, Dornans seems to be there to serve the community for what it is; simple and adequate.

“Outdoor Dining With Great Views!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We ate lunch at Dornan's and was very disappointed. The food was extremely over priced and the quality was poor. Wish we would have eaten lunch in Jackson which is only 10 to 15 minutes away. The view of the mountains is extremely beautiful though. Dornan's is located right by the entrance to Teton National Park.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We had the buffet. The white beans might have been firmer than a rock, but the pot roast melted in your mouth. My son ordered a chicken dish that was very good and plated perfectly. The mountains look close enough to touch. We ate in a teepee structure that was cool.
