The Whispering Canyon Cafe is the Wilderness Lodge's main table service restaurant (the nearby Artist Point is a "signature" dining location), and serves meals from sun up, to way past sundown (but breakfast is usually served from 7:30am until 11:00am... times may change seasonally).
The decor is very much "Kitschy American West" but somehow, the large dining area doesn't feel like a mock-up. The genuine National Park feel that's in the resort's lobby is still visible from most of the restaurant's seats, and spills over quite a bit of authenticity.
For breakfast, the Old West eatery serves up a waitstaff with a lot of sass (it’s all part of the show), and some good old American West grub. Just don’t expect a "quiet" breakfast here. Shenanigans are aplenty at the Whispering Canyon Cafe.
Many associate the location with the popular All You Care To Eat Skillet, which for breakfast, includes some pretty standard items... Scrambled Eggs, Western Home Fries, Bacon, Sausage, Waffles, Buttermilk Biscuits, and Sausage Gravy, for example.
The breakfast menu does include some a la carte items though, that are a bit more complex (than just a skillet full of standard breakfast items that is), including Belgian-style Waffles, Eggs Benedict, and House-made Banana Bread French Toast.
