Views were amazing! Food was fine. Service was fine. Wine list was fine. Did I mention the stunning views? You could have a thin slice of cold spam with a lukewarm root beer and it would still be worth it, just to relax and look...More

Quick review: nice full bar with craft beer, wines, liquors, and cocktails. Friendly, professional staff. Very good food, but make sure the grill is not closed for the season (bar food still available.) We stayed at this lodge for a number of nights, and came...More

We stopped to see the lodge after a long morning hike. If the weather is nice, sit ourside for breathtaking views. The Huckleberry Mule was refreshing. The pulled pork sandwich was good and just the right amount.

We had one good waiter on the first day. After that we had to deal with the bartenders who did not seem to care about us. Rude and made us not come back after a couple of visits.

When the conditions are right, the deck is the perfect place to enjoy the view of the Grand Tetons along with good food and drink.

This restaurant has an outdoor patio seating area and an indoor dining area. The food was good but choices were a bit limited. The view of the Teton Range is amazing from this spot. Prices were reasonable, considering it is at a Lodge where overnight...More

The Grill was closed due to weather. Servers stood around like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It was a cloudy rainy day. Bartender complained about having to be there. Just an unbelievable lack of service.
