Many of the dining facilities require a reservation and if you didn't plan ahead and want to skip the grill this might be an option. Depending on your timing you will enjoy the same menu you find in the other restaurants that require a reservation. The menu options are limited within the Park. If you are going to be staying...

Ate here twice since we were staying at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge. Both meals were VERY good. They were busy, but considering that, the service was good. They recommend reservations for the restaurants in the park hotels, but we had no problems getting in. I'm sure in the height of the tourist season, reservations are best. But, don't assume... More

This is the only place I would eat at Old Faithful besides the Deli. The food was half the price and three times as good. No reservations but you can order apps and drinks at bar while waiting. Eat here while at OFI.

It was the restaurants opening night for the spring season. The staff was newly trained and somewhat green. I enjoyed the duck dish and my husband loved the bison short ribs. The other two meals that were ordered were just okay. It was better for breakfast in the morning.

Stayed at the Snow Lodge and this restaurant was highly recommended. I found the a la carte breakfast and service on the first morning was excellent. Breakfasts from then on were from the buffet and nearly cold. Hint - get the food from the bottom of the tray - still not hot but better than on top. Service had fallen... More

This is the main dinning room for winter stays. The cost range from about $12 to $30 for dinner. However, you do not go away hungry. We sometimes had dinner left overs for our lunch while skiing. They had a good selection for breakfast including a buffet. However, the menu selections offers are good and are plentiful. All our food... More

What delicious gourmet food! There were lots of options for me as a celiac. The kitchen staff was very careful in the preparation. Breakfast can have a long wait, especially if you are going on a tour and have a specific time. Be sure to leave enough time to be seated and eat. The Breakfast buffet was very nice.

Previously consistent food and service has seriously deteriorated since my last winter visit. Unfortunately, you are a captive audience for them as there are no other options for breakfast or dinner in the winter time.
