Service was OK. The food was disappointing. We expected better but it was not nearly as good as what we had at Mammoth Hot Springs. Several menu items were not available because they just ran out. With a small menu that is a big deal when you're there several days. Some equipment wasn't functioning, the waffle maker, for example. I... More

Although we had a reservation, Friday we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. the waitress was courteous and tried her best to keep up with our group. She was also our waitress the next morning. We had the buffet which proved to be a wise choice;... More

Went there with a group, this restaurant was part of the package. We were very happy with the quality of the food and found the wait staff at the bar and in the restaurant to be very accommodating

There are not many food options when traveling to Yellowstone but I think the food here is better than the Historical Inn and so is the service.

The staff here is very friendly. Prices are reasonable for location. Menu remains the same and is heavy on meat. Sometimes the food was served cold. Cold eggs at breakfast buffet. My spaghetti squash was cold. Water service normally good, but could be poor when we were seated in the back corner. Be sure and get the snow package which... More

We stayed two nights and ate all our meals here. We found the waitstaff friendly if you smiled and engaged them in conversation about where they are from. We enjoyed most of our meals. Had a perfect tender prime rib cook to perfection. A friend also enjoyed the duck. Would recommend you try the Belgium Hot Chocolate- so rich and... More

The food is very good and the wait staff are exceptional. Try their waffle fries (with sauce on the side); especially yummy when it's cold outside. And the huckleberry hot chocolate -- delicious! A must try!

During our 4 day stay in Snow Lodge we used this dining room a lot since there is really no other option for meals. Food was good for the most part, do not order cheesecake or chocolate cake - they were old and very hard like left overs from last summer. Bison meals were delicious, as well soups. For breakfast...

Food was pretty good. Some things better then others. Loved the huckleberry pancakes In The morning. Omelette was only ok. Boxed lunches were available which was great for skiing. Service was only ok. Seemed slow and many times they messed up our order but did always fix it
