Limited menu. Asked for crispy fries and got cold fries. All of our fries were cold and had been sitting for a while. When the waitress came over 20 mins later to check on us she said, "How's everything?" As I went to say it wasn't good, she answered "I see you enjoyed it" and walked away as I was... More

I don't know what to call service beyond horrible but that is what they offer here. You will wait over 20 minutes for a table (despite there being open tables). You will receive back-talk and no apologies from the wait staff. You will receive food that all comes from frozen ingredients, is cooked to death and tasteless. Our first night... More

We needed something to eat and found this restaurant. I recommend you only go in to the store and get your food there. The service was terrible, 4 waitresses and none of them were working. Almost all the tables were filled with dirty plates and cups and they totally didn't care. They shouted through the restaurant and were in the... More

The Grant Grove Restaurant is located inside Kings Canyon National Park right off of the Generals Highway (Hwy 180). It is connected to the Grant Grove gift shop and is across the street from the Kings Canyon National Park Visitor Center. In addition, you can easily walk here from John Muir Lodge and the Grant Grove Cabins. I went here... More

This is the first "terrible" review I have given... Where to begin? We had dinner and breakfast here. The whole experience was atrocious. Is there rating below "terrible"? Both times we ate, there was no-one to seat us. At dinner, the server took about 10 minutes to get a menu, then brought us one glass of water (but there were... More

We made the mistake of going here for lunch. It took about 20 minutes to be seated, ages for our order to be taken, and then around 50 minutes for our lunch to appear (and only after we had asked where it was). Then we had to wait ages to get our bill and wait another 10-15 minutes for someone... More

We ate here for two breakfasts and a dinner. The first morning, we were told one of the two grills was out, so I couldn't get my bacon crispy. Dinner was good, but service was slow. The next day at breakfast, we were told a fire took the griddle out so we couldn't have pancakes. Also, the iced tea at... More

Located in the same building as the lobby for checking in at the lodge, the restaurant is the only nearby option for meals. Service on our first night was extremely slow. The waitress, Julia, was very apologetic and otherwise very friendly, helpful, and attentive. My trout almondine was very tasty, though you had to be careful of the bones. Cream... More

On the cusp of a corporate management changeover we spent fond days at Grant Grove's John Muir Lodge and ate frequently at the Grant Grove Restaurant. Our servers were always friendly and professional leaving us with a warm feeling about an otherwise good but average restaurant. We especially liked Andrew Perez who really made our dining experience extra enjoyable. A... More

Nothing fancy but perfect for lunch. The veggie burger was delicious! The place was clean, cheery and the server was great.
