In order as you scroll down, the answers to where are there places to eat, (restaurants, cafes, fine dining, take-out food, pizza, brunch) in or near to Grand Teton National Park:
Jackson Lake Lodge Mural Room, Jackson Lake Lodge Pioneer Grill, Jenny Lake Lodge, Colter Bay Ranch House, Colter Bay Cafe Court, Leek’s Pizza, Dornan’s Pizza and Pasta, Signal Mountain Peaks Restaurant (with links to most menus included, or when they move, as I find them) and a few notes about restaurants in the town of Jackson.
Restaurants in Grand Teton National Park are non-smoking, most others in Wyoming and Montana allow smoking. Last we heard, the city of Jackson, Wyoming still did not have a complete non-smoking policy, but most restaurants have voluntarily gone non-smoking.
We often get takeout or pre-made food at the Jackson Whole Grocer in town. Go to http://jacksonwholegrocer.com/departments/kitchen/ and click on see menu(s).
GTLC (Jackson Lake Lodge, Jenny Lake Lodge, Colter Bay), see descriptions below, menus online: http://www.gtlc.com/dining/index.aspx
The Jackson Lake Lodge (5.9 miles from Colter Bay) Mural Room has high floor to ceiling windows with an unobstructed view out over Jackson Lake. Sunsets are great, as are lightning storms. (2019, much the same menu as 2009 to 2018) Dinner: entrees $22 – $46, pasts, beef tenderloin, salmon, elk, trout and more. Appetizers ($14 -16), Soups ($12 and 9.50), Salads ($11 – $16).
In fall, because it’s the end of the season, some years they run out of the butter portions shaped like a moose. (But in the fall there are fewer crowds and lots more parking.) Even in the off-season, reservations are advised for restaurants that accept them.
Mural Room breakfast buffet 2019, $20, with the moose-shape-imprinted waffles. It’s not at all as extravagant as the one at the Ahwahnee (Majestic) in Yosemite, but it’s also not $50+.
2019: Mural Room breakfast 7 – 9:30, lunch 11:30 – 1:30 Dinner 5:30 – 9
Next door to the Mural Room, the Pioneer Grill has counter service and takeout from (2019) 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fountain ice cream specials. Dinner/lunch can include sandwiches, burgers, wraps, steak, chicken, trout. (2019?, the wrong menu was up for 2019 in June.) Salads including a taco salad, chef salad and classic Caesar.
