Great service

We went for the Sunset Specials. The Clam Chowder was very good. I had two crab cakes with rice pilaf and slaw. Crab cakes were also very good but not excellent. My husband had the Cobb Salad which looked amazing. Didn't realize until the end that our meals came with free bread pudding. Very... read more

Came here for dinner, not quite sure what to expect. We arrived at 20:30, and the restaurant closes at 21:00. To our surprise, we were sent upstairs to Roman's Bar, where we were greeted like old friends. The food was exceptional - we both had the tilapia. The waiter / barman was polite and very attentive. I was persuaded to... More

We arrived at Crab Cakes at about 8.30pm to be told, of course we can eat, but upstairs in the bar. We were a bit concerned but needn't have been. The food is the same as downstairs. We had the special, tilapia with a mango and tomato topping. It was served with a tomatoey rice and broccoli. It was all... More

Our last night of our vacation we decided to go to crab cakes, we are sorry we didn't find it earlier. We started with drinks upstairs at the bar, the bartender was very welcoming, friendly and very knowledgable. We were a party of 4 and we all ordered different entrees, and everyone enjoyed their meals, the portion was perfect and... More

Food was ok. Everything on the menu was approx 15 - 20$. Ordered the fish special and this cost $32 so was a little disappointed that this was not pointed out when being advised of specials. Children loved it. When finished their meal the were allowed to select a small toy from the toy chest.

I had been told of Crab Cakes by some people on our tour bus so I was expecting a lot. The food was good-my scallop entree was good, but the rice pilaf that accompanied it was great! My husband really enjoyed his seafood ravioli, but he wasn't sure where the seafood was. I assume it was in really small pieces... More

This charming and well kept restaurant provides good food with prompt and friendly service. "Sunset specials" offer great value. The fish is tasty fresh, even though the restaurant is over 3 hrs. from the coast. Try the Portabello Mushroom appetizer for a taste sensation. There is also a good selection of tap beer, wine, and a sporting event served from... More

Service from our waiter Cole plus the clam chowder and desserts at this friendly family-run seafood restaurant were great. Along with a good meal on their pleasant patio we picked up some great tips about visiting Yosemite. Hightly recommended for dining in Oakhutst. Also pet friendly seating was much appreciated!
