Overcrowded with people from tour buses. Not enough staff. It was filthy in the dining area with no one cleaning the tables. Food was so so. We avoided the lodge after the first day.

We decided to eat the buffet here after looking at the offerings on the sign. We waited in line quite a while- children were allowed to get their own food, which took forever. The food was bland & the brownies were dry. My husband said...More

I had apprehensions about eating in a cafeteria, but I was very surprised. The chili is very good...filled with flavor. I also had a beef rice bowl with peanut sauce. I enjoyed this meal. The staff is very helpful and attentive. I would return!

So you would think that since they know there are only a couple food places to eat here in Yellowstone they could do a better job! We ate several times at the Cafeteria because of the limited choice thinking we just hit it at a...More
