The ambience of this restaurant is great, the architecture,the table settings, brings you back to a simpler time yet elegant in every-way. The menu is top- notch, Fish , steak ,chicken and of course wild game . We tried the elk medallions which were excellent , salmon was also great, extensive wine list and the bar in the lobby was...

The wait for a table was 2 hours! the dining room is elegant with white table cloths and really helpful and pleasant staff. $48 for two small lamb chops is over the top. The food was ok, but certainly didn't live up to the price tag. Breakfast was much better and better value.

We ate a very large breakfast here while staying at the Lake Lodge Cabins. The service was friendly and helpful. The selection on the buffet is vast. They keep it well-stocked and clean. The dining room is beautiful and relaxing. I highly recommend this.

My wife and I enjoyed three dinners and three breakfasts here. The food was cooked as we wanted, and beautifully served. Our servers were polite and seemed happy to have their jobs here. The lake view is amazing while you dine! Large dining room with loads of seating.

Resetvations are required even if you are a guest at the hotel (though it was never full when I looked). I would say the food was average and lacked flavor but my husband really enjoyed his meal and the bread, crackers, and cheese we got before the meal were tasty and the wine was good. Our waiter was very polite... More

Enjoyed the lobby area of the hotel and the views of the lake, good service by our waiter but the food is just average. Our biggest issue was with the hostess, she refused to close the doors between the dining room and main lobby. Our table and 3 or 4 others were getting a strong brisk cold breeze from a... More

I have written 2 recent, awful reviews regarding dining in the park. It is really poor quality food, service is crappy, and it's expensive. You're a captive audience being served up food service fare. Old Faithful Inn is bad and Mammoth is the pits. But the Lake Hotel Dining Room has got its act together. It's not fantastic but it's...

We deliberately came to Lake Yellowstone for my birthday lunch. Because it was the end of the tourist season in late September, it was not crowded and the wait was short. The food was superb: Montana Natural Lamb Sliders with goat cheese, Sauteed Trout, with salad and huckleberry vinaigarette, Golden Corn Chowder, Jenny Lake Lager, a glass of Pinot gris... More

My husband and I traveled with good friends and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Lake Yellowstone Hotel. Be sure you make reservations ahead because we noticed people waiting until after 8pm or 9pm to get on the dinner list. Our wait staff was very attentive. I mostly enjoyed speaking with a young Turkish girl who worked seasonal helping with... More
