Old fashioned

Friendly service, nice food and beers in an absolutely non fashion place. Most of the customers are local people.

Great draft beers, and surprisingly good, hearty food - burgers, salads. Nothing fancy, but perfect for that rustic California experience. A great juke box, too.

We just had a cheeseburger and a couple of beers, but it was very good. Friendly staff. I know it's a saloon, but don't be afraid too bring your family here. I would. Then again, it is a bar, so those who are looking for a bar, it is not over run with kids screaming for their lost binky. There... More

This old bar is perfect for a quick stop to or from Yosemite. The service was great and the burger was one of the best I have had in years.

If you are on your way to Yosemite National Park and pass through Groveland, CA, and most important need to stop for a beer, this is the place. there was no food being served the day we were there, but we stopped to have a beer. This is reported to be the oldest continuously operating bar in California, around 1852.... More

They offered free pool although the tables were in pretty bad shape. The decor is kitchy pioneer but fun. Saturday music was very enjoyable.

This is my favorite place to have a drink around Yosemite because it feels like home to me (small town/woods in Pennsylvania), the taxidermy and old photos on the walls, the dollar bills hanging from the ceiling, the kitschy bar signs hanging around like "free drinks tomorrow", and the flat-out oldness and localness of the place, with a hint of...

Good, friendly service. A well known eatery with substantial history. Good selection of burgers, decent flavor. Local selection of beers and ciders. In the winter, the dining room can be a bit on the cold side. Expect to pay more for your food - it is for tourists ya know.
