Got a tip from a fellow traveller that the food at the Snow Lodge was better than the Old Faithful Inn. Great tip! Outstanding dining and breakfast. Reasonably priced for a resort ($15-29/plate). No reservations taken. Opens for dinner at 5.

They don't take reservations but we were seated right away. The bison burger was great. Service and cocktails were also very good. It seemed that everyone was liking their food.

Service was sometime lacking especially the breakfast buffet. I had two plates of food before from the buffet before I received service and a drink.

Yellowstone's dining and lodging contractor, Xanterra, is faced with the nearly impossible task of satisfying customers ranging from affluent, urban retirees to large families with small kids on a tight budget. And as if that weren't challenge enough, they have to recruit, train, and manage a seasonal workforce of mostly young adults who regard their employment as an excellent adventure.... More

Great place for lunch! Pretty crowded, as they were one of the few places open during the winter! Our guide was helpful in getting us there and telling us where to go to beat the rush! Multiple vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Wow, the first good meal at a Xanterra operation in Yellowstone this year. My trout was very good as was the wife's Salad with grilled chicken. Service was rather slow, due in part to a somewhat needy table next to us, but given the choice between slow service with good food and quick service with lousy food, I'll take the... More

We enjoyed a nice hearty buffet lunch set up by our snowmobile tour company, Scenic Safari. Had nice meat and veggie choices plus hot soup - perfect on a cold winter day. Very nice facility set up like a top tier hotel. Tasty meal....

We ate breakfast here during our 3 night stay and thought it was good. My wife had the Eggs benedict with salmon and enjoyed it. I has waffles one morning and French toast and it was good. For dinner we had bison burgers and bison ribs and they were OK. The bison burger was a little strong in mesquite. We... More
