While visiting Jackson,Yellowstone, and Grand Tetons, we decided to dine at the Mural Room at Jackson Lake Lodge. The lodge is in a beautiful location. The restaurant is lovely, the service was good, and the food was okay. The real star of this restaurant is the view and the beautiful trails for a peaceful after dinner walk. Our bill with tip was $230.00 for 2 salads, 3 entrees, 3 glasses of wine, 2 desserts and 2 cups of coffee. A very relaxing dinner with nature in all its glory for a backdrop. I would reccomend this restaurant and would definitely go back.

Amazing Elk Loin
Make reservations well ahead of time for a window seat. Gorgeous view of Jackson Lake and Teton Mtns throughout the dining room, but a window seat is something special. Food ranged from good to excellent, with the Mural room salad and Elk Loin dinner being excellent. Crab cakes and dessert were good while the bread was ho hum. Service was mostly attentive.

Beautiful View - worth the trip
The view from Mural Room Restaurant is exceptional especially at sunset. We were there the end of June and there is no AC. While not too uncomfortable, it would have been nice to have a little coolness. The kitchen staff was also catering a wedding party so food delivery was extremely slow. Our waiter was also over worked for the evening and many customers were upset about the approximate 45 minute food delay. The Lobster Bisque and Elk Tenderloin were outstanding. However the Prime Rib was mediocre at best..In all fairness, my husband did not complain about the Prime Rib as it was already so late and we had about an hour drive ahead of us back to Jackson Hole. I would definitely return for the view and enjoyment of the area.

Spicy Elk Lion is the best!
Our server was from New York and very nice and knowledgeable about the menu. We sat down around 7:30 and was able to see the beautiful sunset change as the night went on. It rained earlier and was overcast, but by 9pm hit there was beautiful purple, pinks and orange hues against the Tetons with a hint of sun.

What a view!
The setting is unbeatable with a panoramic view of the Tetons out the huge windows. It may be the most expensive restaurant in the park but the view and the quality of the food are well worth it.

Great food, coupled with excellent service with a fantastic view of the Grand Teton's from accross Lake Jackson. I recommend this to anyone in the area, and I will be back.

We were here to help celebrate my wife's retirement, with our kids from different locations across the country. We had dined here before. Our service was quite good. Unfortunately, the food itself left something to be desired. Some dishes were decent, others not so much, just nothing special. You really are paying for the view, and something to be aware of is that as the sun gets lower, it does tend, despite the special blinds on the window, to get in the eyes of those in certain posisitions around the table. Once the sun goes below the Tetons', they raise the blinds, and you get the full magnificent view, so keep in mind the time of sunset when you make your reservation.

Dining in the Tetons..priceless!
If you venture into the Grand Tetons Nat'l Park enjoy a memorable dining experience at Jackson Lake Lodge! The Mural Room is warm and has a rustic ambiance ...but dining was first class and the Tetons weren't hard to gaze at either! Our waiter, Ramsey, was most enjoyable and pleasant to converse with and his knowledge of the menu was spot on and the food was fabulous!
Service from all the staff was outstanding and food presentation was elegant and pleasing to the eye. Fantastic wine list and selection is extensive. Attention to diners needs was impeccable and although it was a splurge...it was very reasonably priced and exceeded our expectations in a park environment.
Thank you for an excellent dining experience!

Views and great food!
The setting is spectacular, with views of Teton range out of huge windows. Food was very good, and we were pleased that they feature seasonal and organic selections. We were celebrating a special occassion and found that service was very good and we were able to enjoy a leisurely evening.

Beautiful national park lodge restaurant overlooking the Grand Teton range. Expensive but good food.

Finer Dining in the Tetons
We ate in the Mural Dining room during our first night in the Tetons. I had a salad and the Elk; my mother had a salad and Prime Rib. We shared Creme Brulee for dessert. The salad looked beautiful, but tasted so-so. The greens were fresh, but otherwise the salad lacked pizzazz. The elk was stupendous, cooked to perfection. The side dishes were fine. Nothing memorable, but a nice complement to the Elk. My mother enjoyed her prime rib. The dessert was fantastic and plenty large enough for two. The views were outstanding as was the service.

Alps of the america's
Wonderful experience for the family. Have been numerous times since the 70's. Food very good to excellent.
well trained wait-staff. Views beyond belief. Building getting a little worn around the edges. A tad pricey but it's the Tetons !

Great view and experience
The Mural Room has a one of a kind spectacular view of the Tetons. This is why we eat there. The noise level was acceptable a d not distracting. The service is great and talking with the workers who come from all over the world (our assistant waiter was fromTurkey) is fascinating. Being a vegetarian, I'm pleased they have options for us to enjoy. We will definitely return to The Mural Room when we visit the Tetons again:).

Billion dollar view. For the
Billion dollar view. For the parks an improvement in friendly staffing, good lunch menu and decent wine list at very reasonable prices. A must if you want a lunch in the Tetons and you wont stop looking out at the view.

Overlook in Tetons
The Mural Room is one of the best dining rooms in our national parks with an incredible view of the Tetons and Willow Flats! Good and service are excellent-from Bison carpaccio and smoked salmon apps to elk chops with a demi-glaze and fresh caught Coho or rainbow trout. Even the butter and after dinner chocolates are a treat, in the shape of moose and bison. A wonderful dinner in an unexpected place!

Very pleasant Experience
I did not expect such an outstanding dining experience. The food and service were both fantastic. The view breathtaking, our server, Christy made it a very special dinner.

Go after 7:30 in August
The views are the point in this restaurant and the sun in August is too bright until 7:30 or 8. We went earlier and were uncomfortable until later in our meal. The elk was interesting and tasty. The huckleberry crisp was delicious. Other dishes were average oh but the views!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't beat the view.
The best thing going for the Mural Room is the view. You can't beat the spectacular scenery laid out in front of you. The food was hot, well prepared, tasty, but nothing to write home about. Our salads were probably the best of the items we ordered. I honestly think that if the meal started out with a basket of hot fresh bread, rather than the strange dry bland stuff we got, it would have set a better tone for the entire meal.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredible views/ Very good food.
Almost did not eat here and so glad that we dined here. Staff friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food was very good in a beautiful historic building with incredible views. I would repeat this experience.

National park dining at its best
Delicious creative dishes, attentive staff, great atmosphere, historic murals inside, elk habitat outside. More expensive than other park venues but worth it.

Jackson Lake Lodge Mural Room
The Mural Room at the Jackson Lake Lodge is a favorite stop of mine when visiting the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. They offer a wonderful breakfast buffet along with menu selections and your table is a viewing area of the wildlife preserve below. The food is as excellent as the service. After dining I like to visit the terrace just outside the restaurant and hike up a trail off to the right. The views are absolutely spectacular from this vantage point. I also like to visit the wonderful shops the lodge has to offer before heading off to Yellowstone. Enjoy!!

The Prime Rib I had the first
The Prime Rib I had the first night was absolutely Fabulous and the rest of my meal was great too! My breakfast the next morning was just as wonderful with a great presentation with a flower included and they had my Gluten Free Toast~~I was in Love with this place!! The service was stupendous as well and could not have had a better waiter! He was absolutely amazing! Can't praise this enough!!

How can you beat the view?
We had a wonderful family meal with our adult daughter at the Mural Room. We had last dined at the Mural Room fifteen years ago when our children were young and feared that it would not live up to the delicious memory that we had. We were, thankfully, wrong. The dinner was wonderful and the restaurant honored our request for a table near the magnificent window views. The wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view & service - food + & -
A terrific waiter and astonishing views of the Tetons. Here's the food story. Wonderful buffalo carpaccio, a lobster bisque that was out of this world. Very tasty truffle potatoes. The prime rib frankly was tough and lousy. Ditto for a very cold and obviously somewhat old creme brulee Wine selection was fine and reasonably priced. All in all, a good, if not great experience.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service was excellent.
Food and service was excellent. Hostess was poor in that she tried to set everyone next to the service area, even though their were many more desirable tables available. We requested another table, and the person seating us complied. However the hostess sat the next party in the less desirable location.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had lunch at the Mural Room in Teton National Park. We had attentive, friendly service and a FABULOUS view. The food was really good and plentiful. The caprese salad was plenty for 4 of us. Great Reuben on jalapeño bread.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
You could not get a better view of the Grand Tetons and wildlife while sitting at this restaurant. We had a window seat, however most seats can view the outdoors through the large glass windows.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food, good wine
Very good food, good wine list, nice ambiance, and unsurpassed view of Tetons from the restaurant's picture windows. For a national park lodge, this is an exceptional restaurant. Should not be missed on your visit to Grand Teton National Park.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the opportunity to dine twice in The Mural Room of the Jackson Lake Lodge during a recent vacation in Yellowstone. The first time for breakfast which had a very good buffet selection. THe second time for an exquisite dinner. The view of the Tetons is breathtaking and worth the visit alone.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Room With A View
With a floor to ceiling backdrop of the spectacular Teton Mountains, the view just doesn't get any better! Add to that a reasonably priced breakfast buffet with a waffle bar complete with huge, ripe berries of various varieties and all the other breakfast staples to choose from, what's not to like? I had read some off putting reviews about the mural room and what you get for what you pay, but I must say I was extremely happy with the entire experience.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique experience, excellent food
If you're traveling in Grand Teton National Park and enjoy fine dining you must go to the Mural room: end of story! Reserve a window table to view the awe-inducing Tetons - I think if we had been sitting in the interior of the room, we would have missed something important. The food is very good but shy of outstanding. Ordinary dinner rolls and a poorly presented flourless chocolate cake slightly marred what should have been a 5-star meal. (Crab cakes appetizer and grilled wild salmon: heavenly.) Our waiter was attentive and friendly but brought the wrong salad and didn't offer more coffee. However: don't let my nitpicking turn you off - overall our experience was superb.

The Grand Teton View
Spectacular view of the Grand Tetons from the dining room and nearby veranda.

A GREAT PLACE TO STOP WHEN IN TETON NATL. PARK. THE FOOD, THE VIEW, AND THE STAFF: MAGNIFCENT.

Good Food in a Gorgeous Spot
The Mural Room Is a beautiful dining room with a magnificent view overlooking the Tetons. It serves very good food if you stick to the elk and steak items. Also coq au vin which was delicious and comforting. The salads are weird except for the garden green which I loved. We ate there two evenings and were not disappointed. The service is very good and the wine choices excellent. And the place has that view which you can not get out of your mind.
The breakfast buffet is very good with a great many choices. The fresh berries were such a treat on a trip which up to that point had been short on culinary pleasures.
Go for it. Breakfast and dinner. It is a unique dining experience in the National Park system and we have been to many.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
View was amazing! If not for the view the restaurant would not be worth the premium cost of the meal. Service was attentive, wine list good, decor is a little tired. Was there during a conference so bar was noisy and so crowded that there was no place to sit. Even so would still recommend going once just to see the mountain view.
