Old Faithful Inn Dining Room 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.

    Perfect vacation eatery

    WOW! I absolutely love the dining room at the Old Faithful Inn. We have been to Yellostone at least 15 times and we always make sure we eat the the inn. The food is excellent, the service is fast and friendly and it's not overpriced. But you eat there for the atmosphere..where else can you dine around big pine trees? I recommend this restaurant to everyone!
