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!

We went with high expectations. The coconut shrimp appetizer appeared to be from a frozen package and two of the six shrimp were very small. At over $12.00 for this appetizer I expected better taste and quality. My husband said he enjoyed his seafood pasta. I was very disappointed in Grandmas Crabcakes. The three hockey puck sized cakes for $21.00... More

We ate there twice during our visit to Yosemite. The first time I had crab cakes, and the second time salmon. The food was tasty accompanied by the house white wine. The service was also good both times.

What more could one ask for - delicious goodness and excellent service. This is our go to place for Clam Chowder and Tasty Seafood. We LOVE everything about this place. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We are regulars and always make a point to stop in on our way to Bass Lake.

I stopped at Crab Cakes after a long day of hiking in the park. I sat on the patio, and found that I had the space to myself. Contrary to normal experience, of being alone and forgotten on an outside patio, my server Becky was a waitstaff ninja. She checked in with me at all the right times, had great... More

We ate here when saying the night to visit Yosemite. The waiter was Michael and he was nice and the hostess girls were great too. Being from the Midwest, we haven't eaten much seafood and it was interesting to try new things that were fresh. We had calamari rings and I had the crab legs. They have local beer on... More

Vacationing in Yosemite staying in Oakhurst. Dined at Crab Cakes. Our waiter Mike was very knowledgable and helpful. The clam chowder was the best we have tasted. The service was excellent as well as the food. Would recommend to everyone.
