Food here was just ok. Nothing worth going back for. Service was terrible. VERY slow to just get greeted by server. Food prep and delivery was very slow as well. Water glass never kept full. Had to get my own refill. When I got up to get it, I found our server and several others standing around chatting. This combined... More

Good day SJBN - My apologies for the lack of service you experienced in our restaurant. We have identified that service staff is in need of some additional training and have scheduled "Guest Path" customer service training to take place immediately for our restaurant crew. I hope that if your travels bring you back to Kings Canyon that you will... More

Long wait to get seated. Long wait to get served. Over cooked food. Served cold. Not much choice. Sold us a bottle of wine near the registration desk and them they wanted $12 to open it. What? But as others have said no choice here. Place lacks strong management.

I would strongly urge you to avoid this place, although you may struggle due to the fact there's nothing else around. We were hoping to stop somewhere for lunch on the way to the park, but past Fresno there were hardly any options, and certainly nowhere that looked appealing. The service was absolutely appalling, the staff were lazy, disorganised, unenthusiastic... More

This restaurant is a great place to eat at while your staying at Grants Grove. The service was outstanding, the food was great, the prices were decent on your traveling budget, and while dining you get to view out the windows where the waitresses will let you know when or if any wildlife can be seen while your dining and...

It is the only restaurant in the Grant Grove area. So they have you trapped. It is overpriced and under flavored.

We made the same mistake as others before us by assuming there would be restaurants aplenty to choose from on the way to Kings Canyon. Unfortunately, this was our only choice, and boy, was it one hot mess. Our server did her best, but it was disorganized to say the least. Food took over 45 minutes, after we had to... More

We ate here for several meals because of the convenience. It is a nice restaurant. The food is ok, the steak was good. The service on our first night was horrible. Our waitress was rude. We had to ask several times for everything, and she forgot the kids side dishes. Andrew the next night was attentive and redeemed the restaurant.

Our server was quite forgetful, we didn't get everything we ordered. It took 3 trips for her to bring everything and I finally had to get up and get some silverware - she kept forgetting that, so the food got cold while we waited. The food was good.

Came here with my family looking for a quick bite to eat reasonably priced (barely anywhere to eat in the park, let alone priced reasonable.) We were sat at our table and not greeted for at least 10minutes. Our server took our whole order because we had more than enough time when waiting for someone to even come to our... More

We ate lunch here as we prepared to leave the park. Although the parking area and gift shops were busy, it was not that busy for lunch when we arrived but had picked up by the time we left. There was a large group occupying the back section of the restaurant. Food was fine, but was difficult getting refills and... More
