Mediocre food in a National park.....

If you're staying at the John Muir Lodge, this place is just a short walk away. Sad that it is not a very good restaurant. Limited menu. Old carpet, rickety tables. Long waits. (didn't know they take reservations). I must say that everyone in the place was really hustling to serve people and... read more

During our recent, three-week, trek to visit parks, forests and grown children, we camped for two nights in the Sequoia National Park. Usually we rough it, but after several days of camp found, we decided to splurge and eat at the Grant Grove Lodge restaurant just across from the Visitor's Center. We did not have high hopes; location usually trumps... More

This is really the only place to eat if you're staying in John Muir lodge area. It's location is across from the visitor center and features a very basic menu for breakfast lunch and dinner. Food is good and the service is quick and friendly. Is was actually a pleasant surprise given its look and location.

Nothing special about the restaurant. If you stay nearby cabin or camp ground with a family, this is a convenient place to have breakfast or dinner. We stayed at the cabin with breakfast included. The food is good.

Our San Francisco /Yosemite/ Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Park family vacation included staying at John Muir Lodge in Grants Village. We booked 3 rooms for 2 nights at the hotel. Due to some unwelcoming experiences at check-in with the staff and our overall disappointing first impression of the hotel we talked to the manager Bart. Being in the Hotel... More

The food was good, especially the chili cheese fries. The prices were better than you would expect for being a park facility. I was able to get a veggie burger.

The restaurant in Grant Grove is in the same building with the gift shop. It doesn't look like anything special, but the big windows do admit plenty of light. The service was friendly but inattentive. The reason for the 4 out of 5 stars rating is the food -- it was good! If you find yourself in Grant Grove at... More
