Have to say that the food is not great within the park. We took an electric cool box with us and stocked up with some tin food and drink etc as. Food was ok but not brilliant

It was quite late in the evening when we arrived at the Lodge cabins and we did think that we had come to a row of large sheds.
However the inside is better than you think, very basic but as you do not intend to be in them all day they are adequate.All the accommodation in Yellowstone is expensive but then it is such a large area if you want to stay within the park and not travel in each day they have the monopoly. Do not know what the actually rooms are like at the other accommodations around Old Faithfull.
We stayed for 3 nights to do the area then moved on to Yellowstone Hotel for a couple of nights

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.
