Old Faithful Inn Dining Room

Fodor's Review

The Old Faithful Inn's original dining room—designed by Robert Reamer in 1903 and expanded by him in 1927—has lodgepole-pine walls and ceiling beams and a giant volcanic rock fireplace. Note the whimsical etched-glass panels that separate the dining room from the Bear Pit Lounge; the images of partying animals were commissioned by Reamer in 1933 to celebrate the end of Prohibition. The dinner buffet favors quantity over quality, so it's wiser to order grilled salmon, prime rib, bison rib eye, or other entrées, including a vegetarian one, off the à la carte menu. Save room for a signature dessert such as the Caldera, a chocolate-truffle torte with a molten middle. With 50 choices, the wine list here is the park's most extensive list. For breakfast, there's a buffet, and you can order individual entrées.
