We ate here twice during our stay at Jackson Lake Lodge; once for dinner, once for breakfast. At dinner, service was slow and unattentive (the guy refilled the water jug right in front of me and failed to notice my empty glass sitting right in front of him! He left the full jug with a plate over it (I guess so I wouldn't sneeze in it) on the wait counter in front of me. Water water everywhere, and not a drop to drink unless I reached over into their "territory" and helped myself) and items came out of order (my salad came when I was half done with my dinner, after I reminded the waiter that it was part of my meal, drinks came after the food). Food was expensive and I would rate it a little lower than average quality. I figured perhaps it was that shift, or my bad luck in waiter, but breakfast was the same deal; food not coming unless we asked for it repeatedly, coming out of order, tasting mediocre at best.
The place is packed because it's really the only place to take a kid to eat at Jackson Lake. Adult choices are limited to finger-food type snacks at the bar, or an incredibly expensive dinner with cloth table-clothes and black-clothed wait-staff, or this "grill". It has a pleasant old-fashioned diner vibe, and there were neat old photos of the area on the wall (with captions), and it has great hot chocolate. Other than that, if there'd been somewhere else close by, we'd have given it a miss. Plan your meals and times better than we did, and you should be able to find something better elsewhere in the park.
