“Meh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Meh, I've had better. It's pretty much as basic cafeteria food gets. Soggy sandwiches and overpriced in my opinion. I was not impressed. Plus the construction that was going on was awful and sawdust everywhere.

“Avoid it if you can”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Simple food does not have to be terrible. Our food was and my husband developed some stomach complaints. Clearly a place where they just focus on feeding as many people as they can not matter what.

“quick, decent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Prices are a bit high, but that's to be expected everywhere in the park. food was ala carte style, grab a tray and go thru the line. We had breakfast here and thought the food was good, not amazing or anything. A quick easy meal, 2 adults and 3 kids, our breakfast was about $35. Service was good, food was fresh, the place was clean.

“So so food in a outdated environment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I can't even remember what I ordered. Boring food. Decor from the 60s (and not the good looking 60s). The service staff are pretty friendly though. The place closes too early in September. If you're booking into Canyon, check the closing dates or you'll be forced into eating at the dining room, which is more expensive and has a long wait.

“For breakfast it was o.k.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The Cafeteria hours were good for us. It was the only place to get a good cup of coffee by 6:30 and no-wait service. The eggs and bacon were pretty good, and the biscuits were delicious. There was a microwave for heating the oatmeal. Fruit,yogurt, etc. were available. Prices were not too high. Dinner at the cafeteria was pretty bad. I had very dry turkey dinner. The veggies and potatoes were o.k. My husband said his fish was also very overcooked.
