We have been to the Mountain Room several times over the last few years. Our first visit, three years ago, was a good dining experience, however, the last two years have been very disappointing. We do not mind that fact that this restaurant is on...More

I thought the food would be decent, but expensive. However, it really wasn’t great (I was right about it being expensive). And the hostess was critical of the host right in front of us. Also, the server was cranky and difficult. Her first words were...More

Good restaurant with variety. Good and service very good - if a bit pricey it that's to be expected. Steak, chicken and salmon are recommended - all delicous.

We tried to go here for dinner but twice it was closed for a private event. It does not serve breakfast or lunch, other than a Sunday Buffet, which is quite expensive. We, therefore, never even had the opportunity to go here to eat.

Prices were high, selections were few, and food quality was totally mediocre. But after hiking all day, it was the only place to go without driving.

We've been coming here every few years for over a decade. Something has slipped, and perhaps it's the new operator hired to run the park's dining facilities. First there was the reservation (we were a party of 8 so reservations are permitted). For a 7pm...More
