The interior was clean and well lit, the food was good for a buffet with wide selection and great taste, the cost was a bit high but acceptable, and the staff was adequate, I would eat here again, lunch and dinner menu looked good. I was hoping to treat myself to a hot cooked meal on my last day at... More

You are captive (nothing else available anywhere in the park). We ate here three times due to being captive, and we were deeply, deeply disappointed. The only saving grace was one amazing server whose peppy personality and genuine concern made the lunch and dinner meals enjoyable in spite of it all solely due to her smile. Lunch was a dry... More

It's the only place around. We were advised to eat early or it'd be crowded. For supper we split a mediocre burger but very delicious garlic fries. The fries were coated with the best garlic sauce we've had -- not harsh, just good and garlicky. And in the morning for $12.95 you can get a decent breakfast from a fairly... More

It does the job. We wanted to have someplace for a hot meal at dinner that we didn't have to prepare ourselves - they provided exactly that. It took a fair amount of time to be seated when we arrived at 7P because it seems most of the other people in the area had the same idea. The food was... More

If you're staying in the cabins or The John Muir Lodge (as we were), your choice of eating out is The Grant Grove Restaurant or...........there isn't an "or", unless you want a long drive. So a fairly captive market. Dinner first; the food was OK. No more, no less. But the staff seemed a "bit all over the place". Maybe... More

The restaurant has a limited menu, but all the food available is high quality and very delicious. Breakfast buffet is good and very convenient with a nice selection. The servers were very nice and pleasant.

This restaurant had some of the worst food I had ever eaten. We had three meals here as we were staying a cabin. **Lunch - dry burger buns, vege burger like cardboard, the fruit was not fresh and there was a fly on it, I complained to the waitress and we were not charged. **Dinner, mine was OK, my husband...

Never good to hear when a guest not only has one poor experience but multiple poor experiences -I am so sorry that was the case for you and your husband. We have just acquired a fantastic new Food and Beverage Manager and he is working hard along with the rest of the team to get issues fixed in our Dining... More

We only ate breakfast there, but it was expensive. There were lots of options but all taste pretty bad. Kind of like cafeteria food.

This restaurant offers food in the Grant Grove area. The service is poor at best and expect to wait to be seated (even though there is plenty of seating available) and you will need to flag down the waitress for any drink refills or to add anything to your order. In addition, the menu is a set menu and sometimes... More

Clean, friendly service. Great desserts, and good home cooking. They could offer a bigger selection of food items for lunch and dinner. Great wine and beer stock. The do need to improve their homemade soups ;).
