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. A dinner buffet offers quantity over quality, so you're better off choosing from nearly a dozen entrées on the à la carte menu, including grilled salmon, prime rib, and bison rib eye. Expect at least one vegetarian entrée. Save room for a signature dessert such as the Caldera, a chocolate-truffle torte with a molten middle. The park's most extensive wine list offers more than 50 choices. For breakfast, there's a buffet as well as individual entrées.
