Everything we ordered is delicious - rib eye steak, grill trout, beef burger, roasted poblano soup and carrot cake. It might take a little while for the food to come out during busy time, but the view is superb... a little wait is not a...More

I was not expecting much for a government contracted restaurant but we had a breakfast and it was about as good as it could be. The service was curt, but left nothing unattended. The food was plentiful and decent breakfast, and the other tables around...More

Not many options but food was good. The staff is nice. Considering there are no other option close by I would Recommend giving this restaurant a try. They offer to pack hiking meals for you but slightly over priced.

The food tasted wonderful after having very little to eat. The menu has a wide variety of things to choose from. The views were breathtaking. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

Chisos Mountains Lodge restaurant is passably good, but the real reason to go is the view. It overlooks an area called The Window, which is an ideal space between two mountain peaks to view the sunset or really, anytime. It is staffed by young people...More

Chisos Mountains Lodge Restaurant in Big Bend National Park is a rip. Expensive and mediocre food with skimpy portions, poorly prepared. Okay, there is a view if you get a view table. No eating on the deck. Don't eat here.
