Decent food

The restaurant has decent food, but somewhat high prices given the quality. Relatively noisy restaurant area. OK selection of dishes.

We ate here for a buffet breakfast and the food was good, and the service was impeccable. The breakfast buffet was $11.95 and we were happy with choice of food for the price.

We stayed at the Cedar Lodge and had few dining options. We ended up eating here twice for convenience. Both times the food was not even par. The first night we ordered some of the more expensive entrees which were not good. The second night we kept it more simple with sandwich's. The teenagers ordered hamburgers medium-well, and that seemed... More

The service was okay. The food was average. The dining room appearance is dirty. I do not recommend this place even if you are hungry.

Have visited here many times and never been disappointed. The food is excellent value and very good quality. The salad bar is included with most meals and is well worth a visit!

We stopped at this place for dinner when the Yosemite View Restaurant did not open for 2 more hours(7:30PM). It was the only other restaurant for miles and miles. I had a flat-iron steak while my wife had the Salmon. Both were cooked well and generous in portions. Salad bar was basic with iceberg lettuce mix. Homemade chicken vegetable soup... More

the restaurant has a captive audience, either people are enroute somewhere else or they're going to Yosemite. if you're staying at the hotel then there aren't any other options than eating in the restaurant. we ate there twice and frankly our first experience was okay but the second was disappointing. food combinations are a bit odd. you get chips with...
