Delicious seafood near Yosemite

You can find fresh and delicious seafood near Yosemite national park. Crab cake is not so special, taste just OK. Mixed seafood plate (lobster, shrimp, crab, clam) in big pot is marvelous!!! Service is a bit slow. Food 4/5 Service 3/5 Ambient 3.5/5

Crabcakes were just okay prime rib was excellent and the bartender made the best margarita I think I've ever had in my life I would go back and maybe try something else on the menu

This restaurant was casual with a bar upstairs serving the same menu as the downstairs area. Wait staff was prompt and brought us piping hot bread right out of the oven. Delicious! We ordered 2 specials (grilled salmon, pasta & veggies with a lemon cream sauce) and 1 lobster mac 'n cheese. The specials were served with small, but tasty... More

We stopped here for lunch one day. We had never been here before. Looking at the menu we realized the prices were a little high for lunch. We wondered if this was more of a dinner destination. My husband ordered the crab cakes and I had the fried fish tacos. My tacos were bland even with pico de gallo on... More

We stopped in Oakhurst for one night, before we went to Yosemite. We chose this restaurant out of the motel's guide. The food was really good! There's also some dishes for vegetarians, which are also very good! If you like strong beer, i highly recommend "Denogonizer", a locally brewed high proof beer with an excellent taste! The ambience is relaxed... More

How is it that a restaurant 4 hours away from the sea has such amazing food? I came here with my family and was thrilled with how family friendly it is. They have little toys for the kids and a great menu. We had clam chowder and the Maryland crab cakes. While the crab cakes were good, the chowder blew... More

This is the best restaurant in Oakhurst. Good quality food and great service. My family and I have eaten here many, many times and have never had a bad meal. We love the clam chowder, and though I am not a seafood person, I love eating here because there are lots of other great options like the Chicken Piccata or... More

We ate a crab cake and it was delicious! I absolutely recommend this starter! And after that we asked the opah fish plate and it was fantastic! I have never eaten a fish like this! The customer service was very good, both attendants were very friendly and thoughtful!

First our server was a super nice attentive gal. My spouse ordered the prime rib which was ok at best. I ordered the butter/herb salmon. When the server brought our meals she realized before even setting my salmon on the table she had the blackened salmon instead. She quickly apologized and took my meal back to the kitchen. We were...
