Good selection of wholesome food to keep you going at a reasonable price. We ate here several times on our travels around the park

OK for the purpose to feed the hungry quickly. there is also a cafe and souvenirs (including alcohol) at the same hall. Just don't drink and drive North because the North-East loop of the "Big 8" sometimes is even scary. Slow down and avoid at the wet and slippery weather.

As with everywhere in Yellowstone, they just don't have enough staff. However, their shepherds pie was really really good

This is by far the better option if you have to choose from the restaurant or the cafeteria. It's very much a school dinner menu. However the food will be hot when you first receive it, accompanied with food cover. By the time you have lined up at the check out, negotiated the coffee, tea and beverage counter - it... More

For a cafeteria - you'd thing it would mean simply walking in, getting a tray and getting in line. Not the case here! There are confusing signs which don't help to direct people - odd "stations" of different types of food - and overall the food selection leaves a great deal to be desired. We were dropped off here during... More

As others have mentioned, the Cafeteria seems to be very dated. The food is average....not bad, no complaints, but certainly nothing to write home about.

I had one of the worst vegetarian lasagnas I have had in my life and the same goes for the mashed potatoes. But the price was very good for this meal,... More
