One of the Best Places to Get Ice Cream in the Park and Ask About the Historical Tour

This is one of our favorite stores to check out when staying several days in Yellowstone National Park. We like stop here in the afternoon and get an ice cream cone.

Walk in and feel you're in the bears den! Wild western atmosphere with plenty of eye candy to bring home.

Of all the store in the park this is probably the best. Same stuff as the rest but easier to navigate and to get stuff. Additionally this place has a lunch counter and is probably your best bet for food. Service is very quick and prices almost reasonable. A hot burger and fries is your best bet , as the... More

If you are looking for a quick meal, check this place out. We just wanted something quick and easy. Our waiter was wonderful. The burgers and fries were good and the price is right.

We had returned from a morning of geyser gazing and because of the TA reviews I convinced She Who Must Be Obeyed to forgo the Old Faithful Dining room for lunch and give this place a try. Well worth it. We grabbed seats at the lunch counter. We both decided to have simple comfort food, a hot dog with sauce... More

Stopped in for breakfast when they opened (9AM) to eat at the counter. Pancakes, eggs, home fries, sausage and coffee for under $10. Great place for souvenir shopping or minor provisions. Yellowstone Association card will give you a 15% discount on purchases other than eat-in food. Very tasty and great service. Dining closes at 5PM and store closes at 6PM.

The food was good here but pricy and small portions compared with the store in the canyon area. We wanted to split an omelet since the one at the other place was so big. This one was so small I'm not even sure there were two eggs there. They forgot to give us our hashbrowns but did bring a very... More

mean that as a compliment. Fairly-priced, party, simple meals are found here. If you want a hot meal without the obvious fast food trappings of another place across the way, this is it! Or to avoid the priciness of the nearby dining room. Not exactly home-cooking but the nearest approximation you'll find here! I like it.
