My brother and I liked the Saloon very much. It's the oldest Saloon in hole California. We had a great burger and the staff was very friendly.

This restaurant is ok for your standard sandwiches and drinks. We were there at the end of the season and there were few customers. The atmosphere is what you would expect in an old saloon. I could see this place a little noisy during high season. Ok to try. Very relaxed place to go.

Stopped in for a beer and stayed for a great tasting burger. Nice salad bar offered as well which is not the normal bar food. Cool bar, circa 1852. Check it out on the way to Yosemite entrance on Route 120.

The oldest saloon bar in the USA (I believe) that has been continually open. Great decor inside of all the old relics from the days it was founded in the 1800's, and friendly staff and good bar food. Hot wings were super hot! Ribs were good. Went there twice during our short stay.

Great burgers, music on weekends and attended Open Mic night on Tuesdays with some fun local and visiting musicians. Great history on the walls too.

We stopped here for a bite to eat and a drink late afternoon. Bar was pretty quiet at that time of day. Food and selection of beers was great, great service and atmosphere. Didn't manage to get our dollar bills to stick on the ceiling though!

Scary place. Very dark ages. Poor service and not a friendly place for visitors. Everyone seems to be a cousin?
