For a world famous National Park the choice of restaurants are not up to standard. The food here was below average, the seating no better than a school cafeteria, in fact I am sure some schools would probably cater better. Come on folks you are serving people who have travelled from far and away to your beautiful park and you... More

We ate breakfast here twice. It was an average buffet that filled us up for a long day of hiking in Yosemite. It was convenient, not outstanding. It cost $14.00 a person and it was sometimes difficult to get the waiters to fill my coffee.

It is too expensive for the basic quality of the food. The staff are amazing, they are work hard, and stay friendly in a difficult situation, there are lot of guests and... More

We got seated pretty quick, but our waitress was pretty slow to help us most of the time. Food was just OK. We liked the food at the Wawona Hotel better.

We heeded traveler’s advice and got there early. Although the wait was minimal, we decided to remain in the bar area for dining as there was just the two of us and we were terribly comfortable right where we were. Our bartender/waiter was very accommodating making sure we never went dry while waiting for our meal. We decided to share... More

The ambiance is wonderful, they had a bunch of us sitting waiting to get in and then there were MANY available tables when we were seated. Within 10 minutes of seating us they sat another 4 tables in our waitresses section. Needless to say, the service suffered greatly. Food was ok. I didn't think it was anything special and could...

We ate here on all three nights we were staying at the nearby lodge. The salad bar was great and main meal good value for money. what struck us were how friendly the staff were, and its quite nice to have a drink outside in the sun before having your meal. One tip is to eat early as it can... More
