Unlike a review I read prior to going on our trip, it is NOT closed, and it is the only place in the park that cares what it serves. We went for lunch after a very early morning of animal watching in the Lamar Valley (which was awesome). Two buffalo burger and my son had butter noodles. All the meals... More

We ate at the Lodge in early July and had a wonderful experience. The lodge itself is what I think of when I want to go to Yellowstone! Log building, comfort food, and not tons of tour buses! We ate dinner of Fried chicken, Bison burger, Trout and Meatloaf. All the meals were delicious, hot and hit the spot after... More

Dining at Roosevelt was one of our favorites while on vacation. Breakfast and dinner were both good. We never waited too long and sitting on porch is very enjoyable. The fried chicken was very good. Enjoyed the corn muffins. Service was good, met some very nice people. Lots of good choices for food at Roosevelt.

Enjoyed the bar-b-q sandwich, chicken wrap and burger, but don't get the nachos. It was just a plate of chips with very little chili and mostly pre-packaged toppings. Loved the homemade chips!

This is one of the few places that serves food in Yellowstone. My husband and I were ready for some sub-par traveler's food just to fill our tummy. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and quick. We both got bison burgers and they were delicious. There even had gluten-free choices. I was able to get gluten-free buns on... More

Well it's the only restaurant in that part of the park... So he competition isn't fierce and there's nowhere else to go if you happen to be there around lunch time... The HOST wasn't friendly and there was a wait time of 40 minutes for a table for 2 but since there wasn't any other options close by, we waited... More

This had to be the most historic yet enjoyable restaurant that we've eaten in, in a very long time. The food was great and the service was awesome.

Waited 10 minutes before being seated.We choose a full rack (12) of BBQ ribs with a choice of 2 sides.Ribs were delicious and a welcome change from the burgers & fries which we take for the few days in the park. There is a bar next to the restaurant. Staff was friendly and service was good.

Service and quality of food was fairly average and some of the staff need to learn to be more welcoming to customers. Need some older staff in the restaurant to teach them manners.

Stopped here after touring Yellowstone Park all day. Had a 20 minute wait and spent it enjoying a rocking chair on the porch of the main lodge. Bar service was available to take to the porch but decided just to enjoy the night air and the conversations with a couple from CA also waiting. Our table was available in about... More
