We had dinner at the lodge. The public rooms were lovely. The dining room huge. No atmosphere to speak of, but the food was surprisingly good. Braised short ribs and spinach salad for me and Caesar salad and BBQ chicken for my husband. We walked around and looked at a few rooms and were very happy we stayed outside the park at a newer hotel with all the amenities.
For history buffs though, it is a goldmine.

We dropped by early in the day and asked if we needed reservations (a lot of National Park lodge restaurants fill up quickly & this is a wise thing to do). Nope. First come, first served. We took the chance. We've had really good meals in National Parks and had high hopes. Dashed. Our hopes, that is.

I don't know what the "specials" were because our waiter never told us. The menu had a selection of very pseudo gourmet sounding dishes. :)

We had the "bison" stew (full portion) and the trout. The trout was okay but nothing particularly special and the coating was a bit too "prominent" to judge the fish itself. The rice was hard. Not edible hard. The "bison" tasted like chuck roast slow cooked in BBQ sauce. Commercial BBQ sauce, not some special recipe. And there wasn't much of it. This was the full portion?

The hot, fresh bread is apparently kept hot and fresh in a warming tray in a buffet at the back. It was okay.

There is no view.

Given what we paid for a truly uninspired dinner the night before, I guess the prices here were "reasonable." (((rolling eyes)))

Stayed here for first time and impressed. Stayed in lodge room - very rustic but that should be expected as it is their approach and is advertised. Just what you want as a theme here. Food is incredible and staff very flexible for food allergies.

Best part is a walk away from several great trails.

The lodge has a nice menu and good food. Prices are a little high, but you have to expect that inside the park. This is definitely a better restaurant than anything immediately outside the park.

The Lodge offers either a buffet or menu items. Menu items are presented nicely and are tasty. We liked the menu items since they seemed to be more fresh
