Excellent ~

My brother and I came here for dinner after a day in Yosemite. The staff and service are excellent. The food and pricing were very good. Food portions are large I could not finish it all. When I am up here again I will return.

We had a terrible experience at another restaurant in town, so we left and went to Sweetwater Steakhouse for dinner. Immediately after we were seated, our drink orders were taken, and our waitress, Megan was supremely attentive. We had rack of ribs and grilled salmon and it was perfect. Highly recommended for food and service.

Stopped on our way home from Bass Lake, for breakfast, the food was good, the wait staff were very attentive, very knowledgeable about the area and seated us by a window where we could view the very busy Hummingbird feeder. The breakfast was good, good price and service very good.

Pretty good. I had the bacon wrapped filets. The meat was cooked properly, but the bacon was really undercooked. My husband had the flat iron steak that was also fine. They have a hummingbird feeder outside and I spent dinner watching the birds. Had to wait a while for someone to notice we were there, but it was pretty good.... More

Oakhurst California has some great food. Sweet water steakhouse was one of the best on our 7 day trip to central and Northern California. Great steaks. Even the chicken was good!! A must stop location.

Stopped here for lunch on our way back to Fresno from Yosemite. The staff was friendly, the food was good (I had the biscuits and gravy with eggs), and it was very reasonably priced.

Ate here for both breakfast and dinner. No hostess on duty either time but not a problem at breakfast. We were seated at breakfast promptly and had an enjoyable, better than average breakfast. At dinner, we arrived and nobody else was waiting. Several empty tables were easily observed, but no hostess was there to seat us. Wait staff were scurrying... More
