Just happened by this place--it's the only dog friendly patio area we could find in Oakhurst. Full bar and excellent menu selections. Crab cake appetizer was very good, I had the blackened salmon with a salsa that was excellent and my wife had a steak that was surprisingly good for a fish place. Their special coleslaw was nice and the... More

Very pleasantly surprised to find this really good seafood restaurant just outside Yosemite. Their namesake crab cakes are excellent, mountain chowder excellent, coleslaw with Italian dressing excellent. And then dinner was excellent too! Friendly staff, efficient service, nice ambience allowing casual dress to be OK. Topped off by a very nice creme brûlée. No complaints.

From the starters to the dessert - there was nothing we didn't enjoy. Also the cocktails and the vine (a Californian Viognier) were of excellent quality. All that to a reasonable price!

This is probably the best restaurant in town. Besides of course Erna's. And maybe Oka. OK this is the best reasonably priced restaurant in town. Everything is good. The clam chowder is the best. I also really like the crab cakes and the blackened catfish with hush puppies.

Stopped in for an early lunch and has the ace to ourselves, great looking restaurant! Quick service brought crab cakes for myself, fish tacos for my wife and Mac & Cheese for my daughter. Everything was homemade and very tasty! My only complaint would be for $13.50 I would have liked to have seen at least hamburger sized crab cakes... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Crab Cakes. The sign to get to the Restaurant was tricky, but once inside, the staff treated us like royalty. I had a wonderful salad with multiple entrees and my wife had a seafood pasta to die for. We totally enjoyed our experience. This restaurant was recommended by three different individuals in the area,... More

A nice little spot for seafood. We were staying near by and were recommend this little spot. The coconut shrimp was very good and it was nice to see some vegetables served with the food. Seemed like a nice family run and family friendly restaurant

I ordered the snow crab legs and my husband ordered the 4 oz steak and crab cakes. My food was good. My husband's on the other hand wasn't. The 4 oz steak is more like 2 oz...In fact I have never seen such a small steak in my life. I actually laughed. The crab cakes tasted like grease...funny expected good... More
