There was quite a wait to get seated here, at this small seafood restaurant and bar (we were at the restaurant, the bar has a separate entrance and is upstairs). Some high school kids were eating there before some big dance. Well, they've got good taste- it's really good seafood which is a bit surprising this far from the sea... More

We went there for dinner while staying in Oakhurst to visit Yosemite valley. The food was good and the atmosphere was wonderful. Lots of family dining there too!

We went there early on a Friday night and the place was standing room only. Easy to see why! The food is wonderful and really the only seafood place in the immediate area. Even though there was no place left to sit and the wait staff was clearly multi-tasking, we were treated with good cheer and were seated within 15... More

Excellent fish and chips but don't get the crab cakes. They were lacking something not sure what. Pleasant staff. Good desserts. Diffenitly a family restaurant.

A fun little place in Oakhurst with okay food, great dessert, great service, and neat atmosphere with a cool fish tank. Drinks from the bar were really good, though the food was okay. Service was quite good!

We found this restaurant using trip advisor. Fish and chips and crab cakes were great. The kids menus are brilliant with a writing tablet on one side and kids menu on the other. They also provided our kids with a fishing game which kept the kids busy the whole time. Brilliant. We enjoyed the sunset special which included dessert. Thanks... More

The food and service was great - cannot complain about that at all. Menu had plenty of variety and you will find something you can eat. The bar upstairs was a little noisy, so if you want a romantic dinner I suggest someplace else. If you want good food - them go there. The Yosemite Southgate gives guests a 10%... More

Surprising to find such an excellent seafood restaurant in Oakhurst, a little hard to find but just off the main drag, GPS kept sending us in a circle using the address. The night we were there we had all you can eat snow crab legs which were excellent, appetizers and accompianments were also excellent. If you are in Oakhurst ever... More

We loved their crab cakes, fish & chips, soup and salad. If you visit Yosemite, I recommend you eat here.
