Old Faithful Inn Dining Room

For Most Any Taste and Budget

2018 Dates

Opens: May 4, 2018

The menu is varied, offering delicious options for most any taste and budget. The lunchtime Western Buffet is a great value, and quick for those who want to spend most of their day outside. For a more leisurely lunch and dinner, the selection ranges from salads to steaks, and from sandwiches to fresh fish. Dinnertime also includes our signature buffet loaded with favorites including prime rib of beef!

Another popular gathering spot is the Bear Pit Lounge. Adorned with etched glass panels inspired by the original wooden Bear Pit Murals, the lounge offers a pleasant locale for a drink, appetizers and fond recollections of the day.
