Beer or wine with a view.

Good atmosphere, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Views are stunning. Service is very good and the bar carries a wide variety of spirits. A cocktail on the patio is special.

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of a busy day in the park, stopping for lunch in the hotel bar was a first-rate and relaxing experience. Our server, Mike W, was on top of his game, making sure we were well served, even though the restaurant was full of patrons. Great food and drinks. Sit on the patio and enjoy... More

Food is mediocre at best. Better to get some food from the market and make your own! Or, spend a little more to go to the main dining area and get a real meal.

When we visited The Ahwahnee after a day of hiking, we came too late for lunch and too early for dinner so, we thought, having coffee and desserts in the bar would be a good way to experience some Ahwahnee atmosphere. What a disappointment! Weak, tepid coffee, served in a half-full glass (but with diner-style free refills from a friendly... More

A first class dining experience in a majestic hotel. We enjoyed the informal atmosphere and reasonably priced food.

We only went in for a drink, but it was beautiful. Unfortunately, the rooms are very expensive and fill up early. The drinks were great though and we sat outside in the beautiful Yosemite Valley on a lovely afternoon. It was great. I had lavendar lemonade (non-alcoholic) for the first time and loved it.

Nice hot and yummy food. Excellent bloody mary. Great service. A little pricey for a lunch but worth it for the ambiance.

Stopped to have a good glass of wine and take in the amazing view on the bar patio. This is always my favorite treat after several days of hiking.

We used to joke that taking shelter in the Ahwahnee Bar was the wise thing to do in case of threatening weather in Yosemite Valley-- threatening weather meaning any sign of a cloud in the sky. Even if you are not an Ahwahnee Hotel guest this is a good place to lunch away from the valley crowds. It's pricey, though.... More
