As the title suggests, this is solely a review on the main dining room in jackson lake lodge. The good: You will be hard pressed to find a more majestic view anywhere in the world to enjoy while dining. The service was okay and the beers were cold. The bread was really good. The bad: The place looks more than a little dated. “Oh but it’s a lodge, it’s supposed” no. It’s not rustic like out of the old west, it’s just plain dated from the 70s or 80s. My biggest gripe is the food and the chef. Chef overcooked everyone’s dinner and does not know how to do rare. The cuts of meat were not top quality either, which I do expect for $48 a plate. The elk was charred and bland. The demi-glace was barely there. Everything was just so meh. No one in my large group was impressed with their meal. I heard a lot of “it was alright, but it wasn’t worth $”. Honestly, we all felt like it was a tourist trap with a killer view.

We have had great meals here in the past. However this time around food was very mediocre and not well presented, not well flavored, almost seemed poor quality and in some cases just odd combinations for dinner and lunch. We will not return and will take Our chances elsewhere or on the diner!

Terrible stay at the classic cabins

For the rate charged these classic cabins should have more amenities. No TV is apparently standard in all rooms, no lotion in the bathroom and no breakfast included just to name a few. The classic cabin was small and old but with very few options to stay near Grand Teton I guess that gives them the right to charge over $300 a night. The location of the facility was great inside the national park but not much else that would have me give it more stars.

Dated, with incredible views

The views from the Jackson Lake lodge are unparalleled. Simply walking the trail by the lunch tree hill, or sitting out on the back patio to take in the view of the tetons is a great way to spend an afternoon. Some travelers told me there saw wolves attacking elk in the valley just below the resort's back deck, which would be incredible to witness. The lodge itself is need of some renovating, much like most of the buildings in both Grand Teton and Yellowstone. While the lodge has a coffee bar and some shops, there's not much going on inside, and honestly many of the pictures I saw of the lodge looked much better than it did in person. Hopefully they do some updating to the lodge in the near future to get it up to par with the Teton view.

We initially booked a room in Teton village for 2 nights. It was a disaster and we checked out a day early. We were lucky enough to find a room at Jackson Lake lodge in a double queen room inside the main lodge. We were welcomed at the door and check in was easy. The staff was incredibly nice. On the main level there is a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountains, lake and a field where elk were grazing. It was like living in a painting. Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. As other reviews mention, there was not a TV in the room (this didn’t bother us any) and there wasn’t a refrigerator (also not a problem). The rooms were “rustic” but it was just what we were looking for during a hiking/outdoor/nature trip. It had a very local national park feel that we appreciated. The only complaint was it is a bit pricy. The main lodge had restaurants and a cafe as well as several shops! We ate at the outdoor seating of the Blue Heron Lounge with an amazing view. We missed the dinner menu but were able to order drinks and from the bar menu. The food was very good and the scenery was unmatchable. The huckleberry lattes in the morning can’t be missed!! Close to colter pay, Jenny lake and a great stop when passing through the Tetons to Yellowstone. I wish we had started are trip here because it really restored our faith in travel after a terrible first night experience at a different hotel. If it’s within your budget I would certainly recommend!
