“Perfect for lunch ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Our family of four enjoyed lunch here. The cafe had a decent selection. Typical burgers, etc. One enjoyed a PB&J. Two enjoyed grilled cheese sandwiches. I had chili nachos which was chili from a can but what I expected. I should have had the grilled cheese. Overall, a good lunch for a good price inside of the park!

“Good choice if you've had your fill of the cafeteria!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

My husband and I ate in The Fountain while on a visit to Yellowstone last month. Yellowstone isn’t known for it’s fine dining and indeed some of the food we had was pretty poor, but the Fountain at Canyon Village is a good choice if you want a step up from the cafeteria and don’t want the expense of the main dining room.

The décor is ‘50’s Diner’ and you sit around a low counter. The menu is standard diner fare and isn’t terribley extensive, basically it is burgers, hot dogs and grilled sandwiches.
We had the nachos to start and they were very tasty. I had a grilled cheese sandwich, my husband had a burger. They were both hot, fresh and tasty. The service was pleasant and very fast. We found the service in the cafeteria to be pretty bad, so our friendly server was a nice change. They do not have an alcohol licence, so it is soft drink only.

Overall, we were pleased with our meal here, it’s not fine dining, but is a vast improvement on the cafeteria.

“Spit out the chili -I never do that.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

It was snowing, thought this was a good quick on the go option. This is hard to do that bad- you have to try, Menu very limited and of notably poor quality. Do the cafeteria or buy takeout elsewhere

“Located in the general store building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

The Canyon Fountain and Grill is basically a lunch counter with a variety of short orders available from 730AM until about 900PM daily. We were delighted to find this place as we had had a bad experience in the cafeteria next door.

The food variety in the Canyon Fountain and Grill is a bit limited, but it is prepared well. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are so large it would take a teenage boy to eat it all. We ate many breakfast and supper meals here during our five day stay in Yellowstone. Pricing is reasonable too.

Try it, you'll like it.
