I stopped at the cafeteria to take a break from camp food. It was sort of meh- and I don't usually use that language. Hit the spot, not as expensive as I expected for the National Park, but - well, meh.

We stayed at Canyon Lodge for 6 days and quickly found that the Cafeteria was the best value place to dine. A good selection of dishes for all meals and very reasonable prices. All in all, a better place to eat than the Lodge Dining Room.

I have never seen such confusing routing and signage outside of driving into the airports at Miami and Newark! Fortunately, the crowd was just big enough to slow things down and give you a chance to look around and figure out what was where, and what looked best to eat. With any more or less of a crowd, it might... More

Not a lot of choices for Breakfast. I had a yogurt and biscuit. It was fine, nothing great. Prices were ok.

Although most of what this place offers is fast-type food and a daily special, the Rice Bowl option was a pleasant surprise! I was able to get a combination bowl that included rice, meat (several choices), other items and a drizzle of one of two sauces. On a chilly fall day, this was a perfect and healthy treat.

The smallest queen bed we have slept in! Nice rustic lodge with attractive lobby and easy parking. Nice soaps and lotions in room. Loved the scent. The room was small with no drawer space. Very pricey for what you get. No breakfast included. Central checking for all Lodges in Canyon area which meant long lines.

A quick stop for some of the cheaper food in Yellowstone. (There is no truly "cheap" food in Yellowstone.) I would recommend this to folks with kids, as you can get a filling meal quickly here, for less than a lot of places. It's nothing fancy, but it's edible and quick if you're on your way to the Grand Canyon... More

The restaurant usually had an hour wait so going to the cafeteria was much more relaxed. The food was much better than you'd expect in cafeteria.

Limited selections that did not change in the three days I was there. Fast during off hours but lines long and they run out of selections during main hours. Plenty of seating. Pricing not as bad as usual in the park, but servings not large. OK overall, but eat outside the Park if you can or bring your own.
