What can I say - I expected more. Im just not into processed prepackaged food and par-baked bread that is finished off in the oven in 5 mins. Also for this type of food the prices were too high!

People smoking on the board walks. That is rude,and actually against Park rules. Visitors should respect the comfort and rights of others around them

It's a shame that Trip Advisor does not offer a rating that classifies this as "fine" because this is the best description for the food here. It's a cafeteria, not a 5-star restaurant, and they deal in quantity for an affordable price. We ate dinner here three of the four nights we were in the park (we stayed in the Old Faithful Inn) because of the variety and because the food was fine - not amazing and not terrible. It was possible for my husband and I to split a salad (and many were huge & a meal in themselves) get two different entrees and a glass of wine or beer for each of us for less than $25 for 2 people. There was enough variety in the offerings that the group was able to find something different to eat each night, and there were good options for the vegetarian in the group, which is saying something. The staff is incredibly friendly - I had a nice chat one night with a long-term employee who gave me all sorts of tips on hikes - and the dining area features beautiful views of Old Faithful. You're never going to tell all your friends about the amazing meal you ate here but you're also going to have money left over to buy that Christmas ornament made out of dried buffalo dung at the gift shop because you'll still have money left in your pocket.

The food was pretty good--not great. But what do you expect for a cafeteria in a national park? But what impressed me was how friendly many of the employees were. It just made the whole experience great. Plus I was staying in the cabins right behind the cafeteria so it was very convenient.

What you would expect from cafeteria food - not much of a selection and very mediocre food. Wouldn't go back.
