With a family of 6, the cafeteria option works well for us. Everyone was able to find something they liked and after a day of hiking we all cleaned our plates. Having said that, it is what it is, being a cafeteria and all. Four of us had Navajo Tacos and they were just okay, same with my son's lasagna, and my daughter's mac-n-cheese. Nothing special, but we were too hungry and tired to complain.

Okay, so this review surprises me. My husband and I are foodies, and finding great restaurants when we travel -- especially for dinner -- is an important part of the experience for us. So when we lucked out and got last minute reservations at Maswik Lodge in early March, I read the reviews for the cafeteria and decided no way would we even try it so we made reservations at El Tovar. Well, the first night we were exhausted and decided the effort and expense of El Tovar was not worth it so we changed our reservations to the next night. Instead, we picked up dinner in the cafeteria at Maswik Lodge (roast chicken and lasagna), brought it back to our room, and enjoyed it with a bottle of wine we bought on the road. Perfect! The second day was active and outdoors and again we were exhausted. We had drinks at El Tovar and again decided that we weren't in the mood for a fancy, expensive dinner. Cancelled our reservations and returned to the cafeteria. Meatloaf and pasta for about $20 -- back in our room -- perfect again! We had breakfast both mornings in the cafeteria and found it perfectly fine and quite inexpensive. At every meal we enjoyed being with people from around the world, all of whom were experiencing this amazing place and living and eating in a simple and humble way. It was all part of a great experience.

This was a good place for lunch or dinner if you are spending the day in the park. Its a nice bright cafeteria with a wide selection of food and drinks to choose from. Dinner plates have generous helpings and cost a little over $8.

With the limited dining choices this place was better than I anticipated. Except the service was extremely slow! It’s a food court cafeteria style. $8 for a burger, gets really busy after sunset and after the tour busses and or train arrives. Seems as the staff was there just not efficient in filling your order quickly to keep the waiting to a minimum. No view but the deer did roam about in the morning.

Go to the General Store and pick yourself up some food to bring back your room. You'll pay a premium if you eat here, and it's not worth what you pay.
