I wanted to hit the trails quickly but needed food. The Canyon Lodge Cafeteria fit the bill perfectly. I selected a prepared Chef Salad and an apple. Salad was freshly made that day -- very tasty. There was a limited variety of dressing packets, but they were included in the price. Prompt friendly service and ample indoor seating at the... More

Average food quality, not a lot of choices. Service was slow. But guess, what, if you are in the heart of Yellowstone, there are no other choices around. If you want to grab & go, there is a general store that has some choices.

Yuck--don't go there. BRing your own food. dark, depressing. unappealing. Only go to buy your morning coffee and a piece of fruit.

Canyon Lodge Cafeteria provides a reasonable meal at a fairly high cost. There are full meals, rice bowls, salads, and sandwiches and wraps available. The service was quick and the cafeteria comfortable, offering a good lunch break during a busy day of exploring.

This was my best meal in the park. I'm not saying it was a great meal - but I at least enjoyed the options. I had a wrap which actually was pretty ok. You have very, very few options for food in the park. If you have to eat in Canyon, I'd suggest here.

We stayed at Canyon Lodge for five days in July 2016. We found ourselves picking up either breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Canyon Cafeteria every day. For a cafeteria, we found that the number of choices were very limited. My advice is to research the Yellowstone restaurants before your trip. We didn't do that.

We spent several days at Canyon Lodge and also in Canyon Campsite. Each morning and occasionally at night we are here. The food was really good. Quick service. Friendly staff. It is genuinely clear that Yellowstone clearly focuses on friendly service. We were a group of seven with four young children and genuinely enjoyed this spot. Go for it.

After looking at the available choices, we found that the cafeteria offered a wide variety of diner style healthy food at a good value. We like it so much, we went back for breakfast the next day.

if you like good coffee (don't even dream of getting a cappuccino) you'll be in for a fast. The thinnest, most tasteless brew is served throughout the park, except for Old Faithful cafeteria. How expensive is it to install an espresso machine?
