“Never Eat Here!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

My husband was the only one of my family members who was hungry enough to pay the outragous price of 9.25 for a 4 1/2 inch sub. You'd think it would of at least tasted good, but no it was horrible! Never eat hereM

“Blah and overpriced”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Everything is prepared in advance and wrapped. The bread on the sandwiches is stale, the cheese blah, and the meats are just OK. I did not try the chili or soup, but it looked like it was warmed up out of a can, with that fake orange-red color that can only come from food dye. The salads were small and also looked old. The lettuce was all iceberg, it seems, and the potato and pasta salads looked like they came out of a jar.

Forget this place. Either pack your own, eat before you enter or after you leave the park, or spend the extra cash on the bar menu you can order from in the lobby of the lodge. I have had that before. The items are prepared on site and are pretty tasty.

“Take a packed lunch”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

Located next to the gift shop, the Rim Village Cafe has minimal choices and over priced food. Assorted sandwiches and salads can be purchased along with soups and sodas, but the choices are minimal and quality substandard. As an example, their version of a vegetarian sandwich - cheese and salad. No imagination! Take my advice, take a picnic hamper and have lunch knowing you haven't paid restaurant prices.
