We ate at the restaurant twice while staying at the lodge. Dinner was not very good. We had to wait nearly two hours and the food was uninspired. We were told it would be a 20 minute wait. If we had known it would be 2 hours we might have taken a drive through the Lamar Valley and come back. The food was not terrible, but also not worth the cost or the wait. The setting is nice, and the staff were very friendly, but on my next visit I will consider making other arrangements for dinner. Unfortunately, the park service has granted Xanterra a virtual monopoly on all concessions, and I truly believe this has harmed the food service at Yellowstone. But then of course, no one goes to Yellowstone for the food. To be fair, we also had breakfast at the Lodge, which was a much nicer experience on nearly every level.
