This restaurant is located in Yosemite Gateway town of Oakhurst. We were recommended by our tour guide and gave it a go upon our return from a day tour to Yosemite National Park. The restaurant has two floors; upstairs is like a small sports bar. Downstairs is more formal tables. We went upstairs where the ambience seemed quite good. Food... More

Ate her twice. Once for dessert and coffee. Great desserts and again for dinner. Clam chowder was delish. Crab cakes were great as was the fish and chips. Friendly and accommodating staff. Get there early for early bird specials.

I finally talked my wife into trying out this seafood restaurant in Oakhurst, just 30 mins. south of Yosemite Nat'l. Park and 15 mins. from Bass Lake, on Hwy 41. We started with their signature crab cakes for our appetizer and found them delicious, though the sauce was a bit bland. I had the fish & chips dinner (cod was... More

The menu had such a wonderful variety from which to choose that our entire party was extremely happy we had chosen this restaurant. The service was non pareil, everyone was so pleasant and the restaurant itself was spotlessly clean. Roman, the owner, is second-to-none. He greeted each of us and stopped and had a short conversation with us all. We... More

The menu at Crab Cakes Restaurant is diverse and delicious. The service was great. The entire staff was friendly and professional with a complete knowledge of the menu and bar items. Our desert was amazing as well made by their in house professional pastry chef. I recommend Crab Cakes Restaurant to everyone.

Recommended by our hotel and happened to visit during the Sunset Specials. My wife and I tried the crab cakes and fish/chips. The food was fantastic and the prices were by far the best during our 1900 mile road trip. Our waiter "Mike" was very attentive as well as the other staff. Great dining experience. Thanks!
