We ate breakfast and dinner here. It's quick grab and go so that way convenient but has very limited options. If has rice bowls with meat ( kinda like chipotle but not as good), fish, shepherds pie, chicken tenders, and sandwiches.. Has bottled wine and beer as well. The place stays open till 9:30, so it's good option for quick... More

It's hard to imagine that you can mess up a breakfast burrito that you get to pick the ingredients but it was one of the worst things I've ever eaten. The ingredients were all different temperatures and very moist, so juice went everywhere. We ate here our first morning but we never went back.

Food in Yellowstone is just plain terrible. The food is undesirable and overpriced. Our kids got chicken fingers and chips or an orange, they ran out of oranges and then brought out 3 more oranges, one orange at a time. Pretty ineffective, as was most of the service in the park. (the kids food is mediocre at best). The rest... More

The cafeteria was dreary, even with the blaring music. Had the vegetable lasgna with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. I usually like all those things, but this food was dreary and overcooked.

We were happily surprised to find a variety of decent food at this place. I would actually recommend this over the more formal dining room or restaurant, especially if you have already dined at one of those onsite restaurants at another location inside the Park, since I have noticed that the menu share quite a bit of similarities. This place... More

Worst food that I've eaten or at least attempted to eat since College 20 years ago. Please note that people are confusing this horrible restaurant with the nice fifties Diner in the gift shop which looks good.

We went at 6:30pm for dinner. The line of stations winds around with the main courses in the back. The burrito line was fine. The server was friendly. Most people were in the main line where they served kids' meals. Unfortunately, everything seem to be running out. There was no chicken fingers and the server had to scrap around the... More

We were expecting food that would have been more akin to an amusement park, so we were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant can get busy around typical dining times so come a little earlier than you normally would (especially if you're a large group). The menu had enough diversity to satisfy most (beef, bison, salmon, trout). The food was good and... More

Not bad for a cafeteria style restaurant. There were plenty of options and the food met expectations for a National Park restaurant.

Stopped in for lunch on our way around Yellowstone. There's few choices to eat at in the park. Was busy when we got there so was told 15-20 minutes and given a buzzer. There is a small seating area to wait in. Seating is on stools around 4 or 5 bar areas. As a group leaves the seats are filled... More
