We had breakfast here three times as well as dinner. We did not have the buffet at breakfast and were quite pleased with our food all three days. I do recommend the oatmeal and bacon. We tried something different for dinner each time with the...More

Service was good, end of season so restaurant was slow. The meat/cheese board was lovely with elk sausage, and bison salami, 2 cheeses, apricots. Meal was okay. Honestly could have just done the cheese board with soup and been full.

Our dinner was okay and service was good (although water/tea refills were slow). Skip the breakfast buffet -- the eggs were stuck in the pan and other items were running out by 8:30 a.m.

The Great Northern is "grandiose" with views on the mountain... But as the sunset is oriented directly on the windows on the west part people ask to low the curtains... It is ununderstable... If you did not want the sun go on the other part...More

We stayed at the lodge and ate dinner here. It's probably the most expensive restaurant in town, but it's also likely the best. We enjoyed our meals and thought the food and service were very good.

Because access to many restaurants is limited at the Lodge, friends and I ate breakfast at the Great Northern Dining Room each day of our stay. The food is good. Service varied depending on the server. Some were great. The dining room offers a breakfast...More

No. We recommend showing-up at 5 p.m. when the dining room opens, although when we visited they didn't get busy until after 6 p.m.
