Good steaks and local character. Ask to sit by the windows for a great view of the area's pine forest. Located about 20 min from Tenaya Lodge in Oakhurst

This was our second visit to this restaurant and it did not disappoint! We first ate here in 2012 while visiting Yosemite and enjoyed every bite of the steak dinners we ordered. The service was great also. Now it is May of 2015 and we are on a return vacation to Yosemite. Could this restaurant meet our high expectations? Could... More

We were looking for a steakhouse in Oakhurst which was the nearest town from our lodging. It looked great from the outside; a rustic westerly decor. The parking lot was full, but we only waited about five minutes before being seated. We ordered a New York steak and a bowl of beef vegetable soup. Unfortunately, the steak had a freezer... More

Three of our orders had food that was cold. We sent it back, and they were gracious about it. But when we asked to see the manager so we could let him or her know about our experience, they were suddenly defensive and combative.

Very nice and friendly place. Good staff. Very good food, served in realy big portions. The place is a little bit old, but always clean and nice to stay. The prices are not very low, but everytinh in Yosemite area is a little expensive.

This restaurant just reopened after an extensive remodel and it's very nicely done. We went for lunch and we're pleased with the varied selections. Club sandwich, enough to take home for a late night snack. Hamburgers, cooked perfectly with lots of fresh toppings, and chicken fried steak. They didn't have the mashed potato ready for lunch and French fries just... More

The whole meal was great and the service was excellent. The homemade blackberry pie was to die for. The steaks were cooked to perfection.

Good food and portions. Service was borderline acceptable but our waiter was a nice young man and did his best. Would return if in the area.

Good steak, good loaded baked potato. The food is average, and cooked well. Not much ambiance. It was near our lodgings and we were craving steak. It fit the bill.
