Lunch, Aug 3, 2016 & Breakfast, Aug 4, 2016 Glad we discovered this eatery. Best place to eat in the Old Faithful area. Located in Hamilton's General Store just down hill from the Old Faithful Inn (easy walk). Yummy food -- burgers, grilled chicken, etc,. Good variety on menu. Fast service. Joe was a hustling, entertaining server at lunch. We... More

The best food we had at Yellowstone. Service was quick. Waiters were friendly and the food was actually good. And we were able to sit down and eat.

Very small and can get crowded, but grilled food, soups, and sandwiches as well as ice cream and milkshakes coupled with friendly service made it worthwhile.

Yes, this place has a lot of the same knick-knacks that other stores have, but it's right next to Old Faithful Lodge, and it was less crowded and seemed to have different stuff. The help was friendly, and seemed to welcome a kind word. I enjoyed going here, twice.

Not only is this a good location for food and souvenirs but it is an amazing wooden structure. Remember to buy an ice cream, a single cone here is the size of a double anywhere else, and at a good price. A good place to look around while waiting for Old faithful.

We stopped here for ice cream after touring the Upper Geyser Basin. While we just got ice cream and soda, it was the best dining experience we had at Old Faithful. I wish we would have just come here for every meal over the two days we were here.

We had sandwiches and fries that were very good. Was a busy time but we were able to get waited on at the counter with no wait. Enjoyed talking with our waiter, interesting working in the park.

A counter service restaurant with some tables in the store just down the walkway from the Old Faithful Inn. We've eaten here on several trips to YNP, sometimes we're able to get a table, most recently sat at the counter which was OK. Nothing special about the menu, definitely lunch type fare, but the food has always been good and... More

The store was very enjoyable with lots of good gifts, food, and trinkets to look at. We came over one night after dinner.
