Awesome

We saw the reviews and just had to try it. We were not let down. The portions were just right and the food was excellent. Our waiter was outstanding and I'm sorry I forgot his name. But he looked a bit like John Lennon and had a bear claw necklace. I will definitely be back.

I had the crab cakes meal. It was excellent along with the coleslaw and rice pilaf. We missed seeing Roman, the owner, as he was out of town on a well deserved vacation.

If you absolutely can' make the trip to the coast, this is the next best thing. Overall the dishes are good. Not out of this world, but you won't be disappointed. I had the scallops which were grilled the way I like, but - and not a bad thing necessarily, prepared with a lot of butter, as were the green... More

I was not impressed with Crab Cakes. I had their Crab Cakes and found they were over cooked and the sauce they provided for them was not to my taste. I know many people like this restauruant --

Everything was great! Must try the crab cake. Steak is 8/10 almost perfect but I'm fussy about my steak. Only grouse is the wine... Should stock a better wine. I had a pretty weak Chardonnay and it gave me a hangover!

The Clam chowder is just as good, if not better than what you would find near the beach. The crab cakes are sooooo good also.

This is a good little eatery with plenty of choice. The best part is that it is on the 41 Highway heading for or coming from Yosemite Park. It is not high end by any stretch. It is however, a very clean and welcoming environment. The menu is a good size and the crab cakes were really good. Between the... More
