“Hohum breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

Had the buffet here--it was very limited (our free buffet in Jackson was far superior) . . . food was fine and it did the job, but we weren't overly impressed & although we had heard good things about dinner, opted not to return because we felt like we were in a Holiday Inn/Hilton/Sheraton. We enjoyed the Old Faithful brunch better in terms of wider selection and cool atmosphere.

“No disappointment, but perhaps too quickly served”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2010

Our secon year in Yellowstone and a new visit at the Obsidian room...
Food is always succulent-the bison bbq ribs are really a must...and you have to try them...
Service is perfect but perhaps no enough times between appetizers and entrees, then between entrees and desserts...

“Better than the Old Faithfull Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2010

We had a great dinner here while traveling with young children. The menu was above average for the National Parks, I had the bison short ribs, which were wonderful. My wife had the trout which she enjoyed. The staff was very attentive unlike our service at the Old Faithfull Inn. There it seemed as though they expected you to be happy just being there.

“Best food in the Old Faithful area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

The Obsidian Dining Room is the best sit down dining in the Old Faithful Area. Yhe food and service are a cut above the Old Faithful Inn. They do not take reservations which is a plus for small groups.

“Best service in Yellowstone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2010

Had it not been for a later meal at the Lake Yellowstone Hotel dining room, the meal we had at the Obsidian Dining Room in the Old Faithful Snow Lodge would have received five stars. As it was, the service there was the best in the park--friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is not as grand as the Old Faithful Inn dining room, but it was sunny and pleasant. The menu had some interesting choices not found elsewhere. It was also great to walk right in without reservations. I would definitely recommend dining at the Obsidian Dining Room if you are staying in the Old Faithful area, and want a nice, relaxed dining experience with good food.
