Lower your expectations and you won't be disappointed. Although it is a national park it is without a doubt the worst managed cafeteria of all the national parks we have been in so far. They do not staff it properly. They only have one person on the grill, one person working in the pasta station and two in the entree... More

It's a canteen at best. Food is fresh but not inspiring. Please note this is as good as it gets, don't go at busy times.

Again, accept the fact that prices are high. There is no such thing as a meal under $10.00. Figure $25-$100 per couple, depending where and what you eat. That being said, there are some better deals. The Food Court at the Yosemite Lodge has a wide variety to chose from. The portions and quality are good, and if you are... More

Lunch in the food court ... two words: expensive and mediocre. Servers and workers are nice enough, but why bother eating here unless you think you have to. Catch the free Valley Shuttle and dine in Cafe of The Ahwahnee Hotel for not much more money, friendly waitresses and better quality food.

Had a Cheesburger and Fries in the food Court. IT was set up similar to a hospital food court. (I know that sounds dyer but that's the only comparison I could come up with) Food was good for what it was

Food was good, lines were long, staff was friendly! I stopped worrying about how long my coffee order was taking when I realized that I was in one of the most beautiful places I had ever visited. Enjoy the pace and the experience! Eat outside for great views....and take your time!!

We stayed at The Lodge for three nights, two days. I primary objective was to hike as much as possible, so we just needed basic food options to fuel us between hikes and sightseeing. The Food Court fit the bill. Plenty of options, healthy and otherwise, to choose from. As a family of four (kids 10 & 13), we spend... More

We went into the food court at about 4.30pm. It must have been change of menu time, because the only thing available was some luke-warm soup. The place had no atmosphere. It could be made so nice & welcoming with a little effort. There are thousands of people wandering around looking for food, so I can't understand why it looks... More

Good food considering it is a cafeteria. The prices are high but makes sense as they have to truck it all in from very far away. The chili rocks!

Don't pay for the breakfast add-on; you can get your food here for less and just as tasty. Has a good variety and opens early.
