So... I assume the food is good here, but we ended up just looking in the gift shop, using the restrooms, and grabbing some snacks and drinks to go. The building is really cool, and it was very fun to go in and look around....More

We had beef and bison burgers and they were quite good. This is a nice place with good service. It is the best place to eat that we found in the Old Faithful area. We would go back any time.

We really enjoyed our lunch at the counter here! Our server Joe was friendly and fun to chat with. The burger and fries were good and the shakes were just the right thickness! Prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend and we'll definitely be back!

You'll love having a little meal at this spot. It's a nice stroll from old faithful Inn. It's full of souvenirs and other items to purchase.

Total tourist trap - but so much fun!!! Give the kiddos $20 and let them go crazy!!. That arrowhead or leather belt will live for years as reminders of their trip.

Best Diner in the Geyser Basin............The only diner in the Geyser Basin. Thoroughly hacked off with the poor food offering at the Old Faithful Inn Dining Room, we though we'd try this diner for breakfast. So glad we did, we ate here twice. Standard breakfast...More

Do You realize this is the same as the lower basin store? We went to the upper store aka the old faithful general store seeking grilled cheese sandwiches. Formerly I praised that location for its frozen healthy sweet earth brand burritos but could not find...More
