My husband and I had lunch there last week and considering their prices I wouldn't recommend it. My salmon was like jerky and the crab cakes were over cooked. Too expensive for what it is.

On a trip to Yosemite, we stopped in for dinner on a Monday evening and were seated immediately. Even on a week night, the dining room was busy, but not overcrowded. The decor was maritime cute with a fishing game on the table for kids, or as in our case, two adults. The menu was varied. We especially enjoyed the... More

Spent 2 nights in Oakhurst & my only complaint is that we never tried this restaurant on our first night there so we could have gone both nights. Great selection of seafood - the hubby & I could not decide on just one dish so we landed up having 4 Appetizers as our main meal - Escargot, Clam Chowder, Crab... More

Great menu and excellent food! The Staff is like family and their "Sunsetters Menu" between 4-6 pm is fantastic! We make it part of our weekly dining experience. Roman and his Staff are the best!

I have to say this place was not my first choice to have dinner #1 I do not eat seafood...NOTHING from the water. However our friend chose it for her birthday dinner...The food was really good, my steak was perfect. The waiter/bartender Shane, was outstanding. It was a great dinner for sure.

They kept trying to sell us things we didn't need. Otherwise, food was good quality and reasonable price. Well, the crab cakes appetizer was actually a little expensive for what you get, but otherwise the other items were good.
