We only had breakfasts during our stay but the food was good, the portions large, and the service was friendly and efficient. Prices are high for what you get but the dining options in town are limited.

We are used to eating very well for substantially less money - Gateway was of lesser value than our usual bang for the buck. We sat outside on the deck, which was nice but chilly even with a heater- that was fine. Filet Mignone was...More

Before entering the park is a good option! Food was good. Service could improve a bit. Accept credit cards.
