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.

We had three days of breakfast, lunch and dinners here. The staff is very nice and accommodating. While the dining room is a bit tired and need of refreshing, it's comfortable. The menu is fairly typical for what you will find in the area. Breakfast is good (though I would avoid the banal buffet), lunch has good offerings, and dinner... More

While staying at the Snow Lodge for several nights, we ate at the Obsidian Dining Room 3 meals a day. We had read several reviews indicating that the food was not that great, so we had no expectations. But WOW! It was superb -- equal to many fine dining restaurants we've been too. Prices were reasonable, considering you're in a... More

This is the main dining room at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge. The service is prompt and friendly and the food is quite good. Full bar for those cold winter nights.
