The food was just ok. I personally thought the old faithful inn buffet was a better value, but we enjoyed our time here. Would return.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Snow Lodge the last four days it was open for the season. We chose to ate one meal in the dining room. They sat us in front of the fireplace, which was very nice. Several game food choices. We both had the chicken and mash potatoes. We both drank water and no... More

We were at the Snow Lodge using their Wi-Fi and decided to check on availability for dinner and were advised tables were available at 5 P.M. but lines would be forming soon thereafter so we gave it a try. I had the prime rib plus corn chowder and the prime rib was good but the chowder only ok. My wife... More

My son and I were staying at the cabins and decided to "splurge" for a meal instead of our own food we brought. We both had the Prime Rib, my came out over cooked and when he offered to take it back it meant one of us would eat while the other waited and their got cold or we both... More

Ok, it's the ending of a busy season, SO WHAT! My husband and i spent a good portion of the morning riding through the park, enjoying the scenery. The fall colors, the bubbling steam pots along the way, dry trees from fires long ago and some wildlife. It's lunch time, where do we go with several hours of more scenery... More

We had dinner here with 2 other couples. My husband and I ordered the French Onion Soup - average, but then we both decided to have the Tenderloin, with peppercorn sauce and mash, it was one of the best steaks we have ever had, absolutely delicious. We enjoyed our dessert as well. The only hassle is that you do have... More

We ate here twice (due to late season limiting options) and each time the food was decent, the staff was friendly, the value was ok. Nothing special and there is certain cattle call feel, but they have some nice touches like a fireplace and sitting area and separate bar.

We stayed in the OFI for three nights and had to find an alternative to the awful Dining Room. We tried this on the second night and it was only marginally better. You cannot book and after a long we were shown to our table by disinterested staff. The food was just about edible but endured in a very dull... More

If you do not book ahead for the main dining room in the Inn then you are stuck eating in the snow lodge dining room which was pretty awful but they have a captive audiance.. NOT GOOD
