Finally tried the breakfast buffet and was not disappointed! I have had good service and delicious food every time I've enjoyed a breakfast here. So yummy, I had to bring my mom last time!

Thought that it was going to be just hotel food, but got a big surprise. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten and the service was great. Not enough good to say about this restaurant

This restaurant is located adjacent to the Holiday Inn. It is ADA and has a nice decor. The staff was friendly and efficient. We both had their Bison Stroganoff

We were in the hotel and went for the breakfast. The wait at the table before ordering was horrendous (25'). Eventually, a more efficient waitress took care of us and we managed to have a quicker breakfast. The food was good.

This is our 4th trip to Yellowstone in the last 20 years, all staying at this Holiday Inn. While the restaurant has never been stellar, with mediocre service and food that is a little on the expensive side, this visit was bizarre. The night we...More

Let's just say the waitstaff is still trying to find their way. The burgers were dry and overpriced as was all the other offerings. Not to mention the menu is lacking any substantial element to make the place stand out. You are better off waiting...More
