We highly recommend the Roosevelt Lodge when visiting Yellowstone. After a long day of hiking and touring, it was a friendly and relaxing place to enjoy a beverage from the bar and relax in the rocking chairs on the porch. We had 5 of us and all of our dinner choices were excellent. Our server was a lovely young man... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. We had salads, great onion rings, steak and ribs (really delicious). Service was attentive and we enjoyed a drink at the bar beforehand...they had some interesting cocktails. While it is on one side of the lobby, the atmosphere is laid back and rustic-pleasant. And, the porch is perfect for relaxing after a great meal.

One of our favorite meals in Yellowstone. It's busy and plan to wait if going at the rush hour but wow, the ribs were awesome and loved the Roosebelt beans!

We arrive at 6pm and put our name into the queue. It took about an hour to get seated, but the wait on the porch rocking chairs actually made the time go by fast. Our group had the ribs, burger, and bison burger. All food was good. But this is one of those places, in my opinion, were you visit... More

Huckelberry icecream was a treat. Nice selection of barbequed beef. Students from all over the world worked there. The lodge closed on Labor Day and served their last breakfast the morning we were leaving. There is a general store there and a pay phone located outside.

We spent the last night of our week of camping at Yellowstone celebrating our son's 13th birthday in the Roosevelt Lodge Dining Room. He had the ribs and enjoyed them thoroughly. We were a party of 7 but our wait was only about 30 minutes (we knew to anticipate a wait). Some of us rocked on the porch, others enjoyed... More

This is actually a pretty good dining choice but, at the end of the season, personnel is drastically reduced. The remaining kitchen staff (Estimated to be about 34% of peak) is due in part to students returning to school. They were generally pleasant and hardworking despite their extra workload, but the downside was exemplified by my wife's first dinner. The... More

The roosevelt lodge had very good food although the service was very slow. I'm thinking they may have been a little short handed. It was a little pricey but everything was very good! Breakfast and dinner

This is by far the better place to eat within Yellowstone park. The restaurant is first-come/first serve, so the wait time during peak hours can be upwards of 45 mins. They have a large porch with rocking chairs to while away the wait time. Or inside a few tables with a bar. I had the bison spaghetti, which was tasty.

The Roosevelt Lodge is in a great location in the park. Just wish the Xanterra corporation would improve their foods' taste. They have great potential with items like bison burgers, bison tamales, biscuits and gravy, etc. We had the hiker's special for breakfast a couple of times. It was a good basic breakfast (eggs, toast, hash browns, bacon). Their pancakes... More
