While it gourmet, the food was very good with a nice selection.. NOTE that you cannot reserve in advance and there may be quite a crowd. Check in early in the day to see if you can pre-select a time or get a clue when would be good. It is open for 3 meals and quite good for all three.... More

One of the most expensive hot dogs I have eaten in a long time and it wasn't even good. The fries were good though! I guess this is not a place to look for fine dining.

Staying four nights at Mammoth Hot Springs, we ate breakfast and dinner in dining room. We found the food in the restaurant quite good and fairly priced. There was a breakfast buffet and a la carte menu. We tended to have granola, toast, and coffee most mornings: $17 for two with tip. The dinner menu contained a good selection and... More

We ate at the 'grill' the first night and that was so awful we thought we'd splurge at the main dining room the second night. Big mistake. We both ordered the bison steak, rare. Mine came charred black on the outside and blue and cold with stale, tepid fries. The other one was also charred black but over cooked, cold... More

My GF and I were at Mammoth Hot Springs as a lunch stop on our Caravan Bus Tour. After spending about an hour touring and photographing the Hot Springs we did a little souvenir shopping and then headed over to the Hot Springs Dining Room for a chance to sit in air conditioned comfort and have a quick sandwich. Eating... More

I'm only giving this three stars because of the lunch. If we only had gone for breakfast, it would have been 1 star. The lunch menu had a good variety to choose from. In our group, one person got a trout taco, one got the gourmet grilled cheese, and one got a Caesar salad with shrimp. Portions were a good... More

After having enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast buffet at the Yellowstone Lake Hotel. we were very disappointed with the buffet at the Mammoth Hot Springs Dining Room. The staff were unable to keep the food filled, resulting in long waits for fruit. The choice of hot foods was meager and what they presented was unappetizing. The buffet was also expensive for...

It's what you want it to be - causal and nice but not super fancy, way better than the wings and burgers in the only other place
