“Good Atmosphere, ehhh food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

Although the location is beautiful with a lovely view of the grazing elk, and the service was great, I found the fare to be blah. Overpriced and undercooked aren't a great combination, but I suppose it does beat the cafeteria next door. Regardless, if you want the atmosphere, not the food, then eat at Mammoth Dining Room

“Accomodating Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2010

We arrived late, but they were able to accomadate seating us. The wait time was 45 minutes, but it is the only restaurant in the area. The food was nice. The waitress was wonderful. We went back for breakfast and they had a buffet as well as menu options. I would come back when at the end of the park

“Dining with a view of the Elk!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

The Mammoth Hot Springs restaurant is very good, we were surprised, it had good selections & offer healthly choices with friendly service. Watching the Elk roam around outside was great.

“Much better than expected.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

I thought that since this was part of the national parks, we would have average food. Was I ever wrong! This was the best meal of our trip! Good food & excellent scenery (elk grazing in the nearby park.) The Yellowstone wine was especially surprising. I never knew there could be good wine grown in Yellowstone.

“Good, hearty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2010

The food here is more than just glorified mountain cuisine. The chefs go out of their way to please any palate. From appetizer to desert, I enjoyed everything. One caveat, the service at breakfast can be slow. At breakfast, I recommend that you use the buffet instead of ordering a la carte.
