We stopped here while we were waiting for our tour of cliff palace. It was good, I was glad to have a Navajo Taco, something you don't find out east. The rest of the family had this fish tacos and really enjoyed them.

We had the breakfast buffet. Everything was very good. Our server was helpful and nice. The view was incredible. We will eat here again the next time we are in Mesa Verde.

The menu is interesting at best with some strange food combinations that just don't taste good. My burger tasted only like burnt charcoal. The fries were the only good thing we had. The chicken was bland and really needed at least some salt and pepper. Sadly, while the views are great, the food left us unsatisfied.

Went to Ranger briefing at the Far View Lodge and hoped to grab dinner at the lodge restaurant. 45 minute wait without reservations for overpriced food. Popped upstairs to the bar, had great views, OK but reasonably priced food.

I won't say it was bad, but it was less than okay. When you're suppose to get a hot sandwich and it's not, it's disappointing. And as far as the view goes....the windows were filthy.

We ate here after touring the Mesa Verde cliff houses. The food was okay, but nothing spectacular. Just your average run of the mill café.

I had the Navajo Taco, it was superb. Kids had hot dogs, wife had pizza. Pros: Good food. Service was fast, very friendly and enthusiastic. Great view of the park from the nice, clean seating area. Plenty of food selections of all types. Salad bar looked good too. Con: High prices, but not entirely unreasonable for a cafe in the... More

We stopped here during our exploration of Mesa Verde. It was a cafeteria style outlet, and the food matched our expectations - average. The dining area is light and roomy, with great views over the Mesa. the best thing is the convenience. If you have travelled here without provisions, the cafe is a godsend.

We had dinner at night with thunderstorm views. It was spectacular. We had drinks and an array of appetizers, all were very good and were indicative of the region.

We ate breakfast here during our stay and did not enjoy the food and felt the prices were very high for what you received. It was cafeteria style food but had sat out for a very long time. There are very limited options in the park so we were hoping this would be a good dining spot. We had planned... More
