Ambiance just OK; clumsy, overpriced food. Not up to the standard of the rest of the Ahwahnee Hotel.

We were staying at the Ahwahnee, and met up with our friends at the Ahwahnee bar...we all traveled separatly. The bar is VERY popular and there was a substantial line to get in, but we had an excellent server, who added chairs as our friends arrived. Good food and a fun atmosphere. Highly recommend

after a good hike, bike ride this is a great place to take a break and enjoy a light lunch and a well earned drink. You may have to wait a few minutes for a table if you want to be outside but it is certainly worth it, sitting in the sunlight enjoying a drink and taking in the scenery... More

Other times they are serving brunch and at $50/head (last time I was there) it was a little much when I just wanted... More

The bar at the Ahwahnee is located in a five star hotel in the most beautiful spot in the United States. The decor in the bar is a little sterile and would benefit from additional wood tones and art work. The service is attentive and prompt. The kitchen provides a good menu with tasty items. The bar is not to... More

I expected more at this iconic location. The food selection is very limited and the surroundings are rather plain. Maybe management can effectuate an improvement in ambiance and food in the future.

Nice service and pretty good food at lunch. Expensive but good cocktails and service. Have hot cider going in winter, to which they will had a shot or two of rum or bourbon. Pretty yum.

Don't expect budget dining here. The food is certainly expensive, although the soup in the Ahwahnee Bar is fantastic The chichen salad was extremely good too
