The food was great and they had an awesome wine list! Be sure to get in line early, they have a long line of people to get in, as they only take reservations for 8 people and up!

This restaurant is very bad, and overpriced. They get away with it because it's the only option. The salad bar has low quality produce and cheap dressing with few options.

A basic cafeteria with acceptable food at a reasonable price for Yosemite. Went for breakfast only and it was about what we expected.

We ordered the hamburgers and there were good. The staff was nice and it was convenient to eat at the hotel after a full day of driving.

Great food and service. Beautiful decor - lots of wood and modern design. A bit of a wait to be seated even at 6:30.

Stayed in the hotel and ate here for breakfast. We opted for the breakfast buffet. It was basic and the food fairly standard. We were there the first week of September, so the crowds were lesser than during the height of the summer. The buffet food tasted OK, but it took some time for some of the items to be... More
