The food here is good and the prices are reasonable for being in a national park. The wait staff is very friendly.

Stayed in the hotel and ate here for breakfast. We opted for the breakfast buffet. It was basic and the food fairly standard.

I accept that it's the off season, however, prices are definitely captive audience level, and for that I expect a decent level of service and good food.

a bit pricey and very busy in the evening However the all you can eat breakfast is brilliant. The cooked food was to die for and the fruit very fresh.

Arrived when it opened, but service was still slow. Food was so-so, nothing special, and definitely lacking compared to other places we ate on our trip to Yosemite. Will not return to this restaurant.

Unfortunately the restaurant is just average with a reasonable service. My husband ordered a medium rare steak and it came well done. I ordered BBQ chicken breast. What I received was a chicken breast with some kind of BBQ sauce on it. It certainly was not prepared on the grill.

Convenience is the key at this cafeteria style restaurant. Good selection and quick, and the food is actually pretty good.
