This is a favorite family stop for dinner, while visiting Yellowstone. It's cafeteria style, so you you get what you want, a la carte. We particularly love their pot roast, which they do several times a week.

This is not fine dining by any means. But the Lake Lodge does a pretty good job serving up basic grub for hungry people. They offer a decent variety, and the prices aren't too bad. It's cafeteria food... but reasonably good cafeteria food.

We never managed to have dinner at the Lake Hotel where we were staying because we couldn't get an early enough reservation. So for two nights, we went to the lodge for dinner. It was cafeteria style, but there is a great selection and big...More

We were here in September on a rainy, snowy, cold day. We decided to explore the Lake Lodge. It was beautiful! Then we noticed the interesting cafeteria with the high beams and the chairs that looked like they were made from trees. We decided to...More

We stopped in here during a rainy afternoon in the park. There was hardly anyone in the lodge or cafeteria, possibly because the Lodge is having some major reconstruction. We found it to be quite peaceful, and we were happy with the variety of food...More
