Fish and chips on a cold night

The menu didn't have a lot of choices, but the fish and chips was very good. Standard beer selection and for a craft beer snob, not much good.

Restaurant was packed on a Saturday night in early Oct. We were seated fairly quickly. Decent menu choices. Food was good, but average. Swordfish was a little dry, but veggies very good. Fried green beans and mushrooms were excellent. Portions were large. Service was good, but servers seemed a little overworked. A little pricey, but what choices does one have... More

Bad service experience, average food. The dinner was not that bad, just a 30 min waiting for the table (announced) and a mistake in the service ( a "Chicken Marsala" instead of a "Center Cut Pork Chop") which simply meant a 30 minute waiting more.... not a big problem, i know we were in a touristic restaurant outside the Yosemite...

You are probably only going to the Cedar Lodge restaurant because you are staying at the Cedar Lodge itself or at the Yosemite View lodge down the road. You're not likely to go out of your way to stop here. As one of the few restaurant options between Mariposa and Yosemite valley, it's pretty good. We tried the following entrees:... More

Stayed at the cedar lodge for 2 nights, had breakfast there the 2 mornings, generally waitress was switched off and uninterested, so I went looking for an English tea bag, found one by the limited breakfast buffet and it was snatched out of my hand by a 60 something waitress as well as bring shouted out! Talk about customer service!... More

Felt like Id gone back in time as I entered the restaurant as the decor was very dated. Strange atmosphere but staff were pleasant and attentive. The salad was tasty but the burger lacked seasoning and it would of been better to have the option of adding cheese or other toppings. Very pricey I think the bar and grill would... More
