We ate at the Mountain Room for three nights. Each night the room was only half full but we waited from 30-45 minutes due to shortage of waitstaff (we were told) But when we were seated the food was excellent. My favorite was the salmon, with preparation changing every night.

For the money payed you might expect more quality food, but sadly, no. The views are amazing, but you can see them outside the restaurant as well. I would not go back

Arrived at the restaurant ten minutes before opening and was not seated until 15 minutes after. Service was spotty. Food was okay, but portions were small for the price.

We knew our choices were limited in the park and we searched for an affordable option that would satisfy our appetites. We failed. The nacho chips, with 3 salsa choices, were stone cold and the tacos had the same BBQ meat as the sandwiches our kids ordered. The potato chips were crispy and decent. Honestly we left hungry and disappointed. The atmosphere of the bar was nice with the fireplace in the middle. I do not understand why they did not have a larger menu selection- not even a hamburger... They did allow kids to buy marshmallows at the market next door and roast them in the fireplace.

My daughter and I enjoyed our meal at Mountain Room Restaurant. Excellent choices, good wine selections, a wonderful spinach and wild rice soup, and a wonderful blueberry/raspberry cobbler ala mode, and wonderful wait staff.
