We had to wait to be seated (after having other guests cut the line and be seated) and then waited over 15 minutes in the ridiculously hot dining room for a server to appear to take our order. We were ready to order but when it was obvious that service for the entire meal would be sub-par (even for the... More

After deciding not to go back to the Inn's restaurant, we came here. The staff, particularly Bill, were very friendly and had no problem accommodating our group at various times for breakfast and dinner. Food was excellent as was service, and it was far less crowded than the inn.

We had a majority of our meals here, over a 4 day period. Always seemed to have good service and good food. We preferred this restaurant over the others we patronized, in the park. Liked the fact we had a breakfast choice. We could either have buffet or order from the menu. Buffet was small be had what I liked... More

Dinner at the Obsidian was pretty good considering this is a very touristy area and the numbers being catered for. The breakfast buffet is not so good - a la carte breakfast is much better quality and value.

We had dinner here and it was quite good. Definitely better than the food we had had at the Old Faithful Inn, but don't expect to be overly wowed. Our service was good except we had to repeatedly ask for refills on our water (the elevation made us thirsty!).

This menu had better menu choices than even Old faithful Inn. We had a great dinner. The atmosphere isn't as nice as Old Faithful Inn, np but the food was excellent.

After a miserable dinner at the Old Faithful Inn, we started dining here. What a good decision! You will need to make reservations. We had several dinners and each was delicious. I think that the kitchen chef here needs to train the cook at the Inn.

After the Lake Hotel dining room this was our second best meal in the park. Prompt kind service. Food came out quickly and warm. Good bread. Decent wine list. My steak was just excellent. Pasta was good. Mixed reviews here indicate things may be hit and miss but on our night kitchen and service were right on.

The restaurant was crowded but we had excellent service and food. My husband was thrilled with his buffalo ribs. I don't usually eat all of a steak but I polished off the entire prime rib. If we are lucky enough to go back to Yellowstone, we will certainly eat here again.
