good service and food

The salmon was excellent. I've never had better. The service was friendly and efficient. It was an enjoyable dining experience.

We were going to try Alice's CookHouse, and when we went in-it was a counter service-we wanted a sit down restaurant. So we asked them for recommendations, and they recommended here-so we tried it! It was FABULOUS!! I had their special steak-it was delicious! We loved it so much, we came back 2 days later!

We arrived for dinner, no one at the front desk. Waitress finally came and took our name, they were obviously understaffed that night. At first she had a bit of a snippiness to her, but mellowed as the night went on. Food was just so, so. My husband ordered a steak, he stated is was pretty good. Could have put... More

Only steakhouse in Oakhurst. We arrived stood in the front no one around to acknowledge us, another couple arrived a few minutes after us. Employees walking around and no one looking our way. After about 10 minutes of no one coming to seat us, the Other couple left (I wish we had been as smart). Finally the "greeter" who was... More

I've been eating at Sweetwater for the past several years. This year it was different because the place has been renovated. Very nice! Comfortable bar. Everyone in my group ordered the rib eye steak. It ranked up there with the tastiest steaks I've ever eaten. The steak was nicely cooked and moist. Not dry at all. I don't know if... More

We stopped and ate here while staying at a camp site in Fish Camp. It looked a little old and outdated but the food was excellent and the service was great. It was not very busy so we got our meal fairly quick. The meal came with a salad or soup and a side and a vegetable. There was so... More

Flat iron steak was great. Female bartender was helpful, and locals also helped with area info. Enjoyed bar area.

We stayed at the nearby Queens Inn on the River and Sweetwater was recommended. Good call. Cold beer, good service and a very nice NY Strip with fries. My wife had a pasta dish which was also very good. Even the house salad is worth mentioning. Very crisp and fresh made with spring mix. Not your usual shredded lettuce. Well... More

Oakhurst is a small town about 15 miles South from the Southern / Fish Camp entrance to Yosemite National Park. If you are here expecting a fine dining experience, you'll be disappointed no matter where you go. If I can borrow a phrase from the movie City Slickers, "the food's brown and hot and plenty of it." In all seriousness,... More

We arrived in time for the early bird menu. My husband had a New York steak and said it was cooked to perfection. I had grilled chicken which was very nice, with a lovely selection of vegetables. Service was very good, we weren't rushed at all, even though a large party arrived soon afterwards. Not expensive either.
