They serve fast food. Ours wasn't remarkable in any way. The waiting time was remarkable though: more than 25 minutes from being seated until we could order our meal. The only reason, that this does not result in a worse rating from me is, that it seems, that the sudden closure of a nearby highway could have generated a boom... More

We were driving on our way to Yosemite, when we stopped by Buck Meadows restaurant. This place is 11 miles from Groveland, 19 miles from Evergreen lodge, and 31 miles from Yosemite village. In other words in the middle of nowhere. The northern entrance to Yosemite is 14 miles away, and there are restrooms there, for my long suffering wife,... More

We needed to eat, it was late, and there aren't many other options. The menu choices are interesting, using old TV Series for their food - Donna Reed Turkey Dinner for example. The place seemed popular with locals, prices were about where they should be considering the looks of the place. Service was not very good at all - they... More

We ate here several times while staying in Groveland for a week long visit to Yosemite. Our service was always friendly and efficient. The food was good, especially the hamburgers, onion rings, and fries. Some of the entrees, such as lasagna, are really large portions so perfect size to split. Prices were really good for food and for beer. The... More

The only place in the near vicinity to our B&B, but it was great! The food was good, wide variety and the staff got to know us after a couple of times. The homemade pies were outstanding and the wine & beer selection excellent!

Buck Meadows was known for its famous 49er Burger and other great burgers. Good Burgers are hard to find in the Groveland area and Hwy 120 corridor. Buck Meadows had it down and was one of the top local places to get a good burger... until the owner arbitrarily changed the burgers by putting them on a cheaper hoagie bun.... More

We stayed at this location for 2 nights and enjoyed breakfast and evening meal at this diner. There were lots of variety on the menu and you really couldn’t go wrong with anything on this menu. The desserts were particularly good and the price was very reasonable. The staff were all very polite and attentive.

The food was always wonderful--we ate dinner here three different nites and tried both the specials and the burgers. The 20 oz. frosted Sierra Nevada was to die for after hiking in Yosemite. Highly recommended.

We ate there once for dinner and once for breakfast. Food was homestyle and filling. Waitress at night forgot to bring our check and we waited a long time to leave. Morning waitress let us sit (We were ready to order) while she cleaned tables and puttered around. Once we ordered, food came fast and it was good.
