This place has the best corned beef hash I have ever had. The deserts are to die for. The dinner was great. The staff was friendly and service was good.

This Restaurant has alot of potential. Great location. But, the bad news. Dirty. We even ate there twice to give it a chance. Floors were dirty. Tables were sticky. Do not go in the bar! Looks like they had not cleaned it since it opened. Service was terrible. But, cannot fault waitress entirely. There is no system to their madness... More

I have never reviewed a restaurant before, but this time I had to. I ordered the biggest steak on the menu and It was by far the worst steak I have ever eaten. It was%70 fat and the mashed potatoes were dead cold and horrible. The service was terrible and the price was high. I also tried the buffalo wings... More

Stayed in the attached hotel (YOSEMITE WESTGATE LODGE) and that's the only restaurant in 15 miles. So, having no other choice, we went inside and made our order. My wife took pasta with meat and I took meatloaf. we both took mashed potatoes as a side. We were surprised how good it was as the place didn't look so welcoming.... More

We were staying near the Groveland area while visiting Yosemite National Park. The lodge had a restaurant, but one visit there was enough. Buck Meadows Restaurant offered us a very good dining option. We had two meals at the restaurant and were well pleased with the food. Certainly, this is a good option for anyone staying near the Big Flat... More

After an active day at the Yosemite National Park, if you are staying close to the Big Flat Oak Entrance, this is one of the few dining place in the area. It is quite busy during dinner time, though it does not appear so from outside. Liked the fish and chips they served. We were tired and did not want... More

We ate here after staying near yosemite. Our breakfast was great - according to my husband, better than Bob Evans or Cracker Barrel - pretty high praise. Very friendly staff and clientele.

Had a great (and very affordably priced) soup/salad/sandwich combo after a long day hiking Yosemite -- tuna sandwich, navy bean soup, and salad, washed down with an iced schooner of ale. Looked like extensive menu. Place was packed on a Wednesday night. Very suitable for families.

Great menu and staff. Food was better than expected. Enjoyable all around. Beer comes in a large frosted mug. Must have.
