“Excellent staff, decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We had dinner here with a family of 4 and enjoyed it very much.The thing that makes this place special is the exceptionally friendly way you are treated by the staff! Outstanding! The food was nothing special, but still tasty! But if you see how hard our waitress (unfortunately forgot her name) was working and how friendly she was, I would almost forget about the food!
Prices are very reasonable, so I can definitely recommend this place!

“Ice Cream/Store Review + Yellowstone Discount Info”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We were here in late June and I forgot to review this store. Our first afternoon, after checking into the Old Faithful Hotel, we stopped here for some ice cream. Nothing special but costly. The next day, we purchased ice cream at the snack shop opposite the gift shop in the Old Faithful Hotel. Superior in every way and actually less costly to boot.

The Lower Hamiton Store did have some blankets that we purchased + some other things. We compared this shop to the one in the Hotel--both are very good.

Did you know that upon becoming a Yellowstone Member at $35, you'll receive one 25% and unlimited 15% discounts on items that you purchase in the Park? Just ask and they'll advise where the discount is valid. We got our membership at the Vistor's Center near the Old Faithful Spring. We saved over $125 that made some purchases possible.

“By any name, a favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Now run by Delaware North, but this counter is one of our favorites. We eat at off times when possible, and enjoy a later - til 10:30 I believe- breakfast. One glitch with toast- taken care of immediately. Otherwise, we were very happy with our meals here. Didn't make it in for dinner this trip- but in the past were very happy with those as well. Service was good- and the location in the basin works great for us! Bathrooms clean, always a plus!

“Staff couldn't be nicer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We really liked it here. Great stuff to restock our cooler/fridge in our room at the Snow Lodge. Yummy snacks. Also fun shopping and clean restrooms. We went in several times during our June 2012 trip and always had the best experiences.

“Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Good Diner Food. Staff was enthusiastic and fun. Nicer than fishing bridge diner. We sat at the counter and our kids liked that view!
