The selection is scarce and just not all that appetizing. It is very busy and probably worth going to one of the restaurants in the park instead, if you haven't brought your own food. There is a camp store at Manzama that has some good stuff if you'd like to pick up some snacks.

So we stupidly didn't pack a lunch and paid $15 for a roast beef sandwich and a side of pasta salad which came back to haunt me repeatedly. On the flip side, I could have gone to the Lodge restaurant and paid $15 for one appetizer. With a poorly run food service situation and the rim trails filled with selfie... More

I was excited to eat here then I saw the offerings and the prices. I know you have a monopoly on food at the Rim Village, and that you have a lot of people to feed so that can be difficult. I was mostly disappointed in the pricing for what was available, not the quality.

This is not a sit down restaurant - it's a grab some things and then find a table to eat quick. Prices are high, but there is not another place around to eat really, so they know they have got you. Food is just okay. Nothing special at all.

Talk about gouging! It's a rip off so save your money and go elsewhere. $19.30 for a roast beef and cheese sandwich, a hot dog and one small drink. No straws or lids provided.

Small selection of sandwiches, fountain drinks, bottled water etc. Some energy bars. Not too much else.

They've got you and they know it!Due to late snows, nothing else was open, so for that I was glad. Otherwise the food is lacking & expensive on top of that. Convenience store selection & taste, but Country Club pricing !!! Ouch, ouch!!

For a quick place to eat in a national park, it wasn't horrible. Had a turkey wrap with potato salad. National parks are not known for their eats, they are known for the scenery. Bring your own if you are there for the food.

If you want snacks or sandwiches, try the Mezoma store first, at the bottom of the mountain when you first come into the park. You will save some $. I got the chicken and rice. They make it there. It was good and $8.50. But my husband got a cold roast beef sandwich that wasn't very good and it was... More

Looking to grab a sandwich or snack for a hike or to have during the long Crater Lake rim drive? Your only option is the Rim Village Cafe and it is a classic example of what happens in a monopolistic situation - a poor selection of food, terrible quality and simply outrageous prices. The humus/Mediterranean wrap was particularly awful. There's... More
