Much nicer than Hotel

Ok, we had our issues with our two day visit to the Wawona Hotel, but the dining room was the highlight of our stay. Everyone in the dining room seemed to know their job and focused on providing fine service. We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast. There were numerous choices for both the large... read more

We stopped by for lunch and fully enjoyed the whole experience. I like the Victorian feel to the Hotel and the staff were very friendly. The potions were large and tasty and all soft drinks were free refills (even apple juice which wasn't on the lunch time menu.) When we were there it was very quiet and we didn't need... More

We did not stay at this hotel, however we did stop here for breakfast and lunch several times while visiting yosemite. Portions are very substantial (even for a teenage boy), wait staff very friendly and cheery. I would definitely recommend this stop. Cheaper than in valley.

We loved this old hotel and it's gracious dinning room. We stopped for breakfast on our way out of the park. The waitress was a gem. The adults had Eggs Benedict and the children had pancakes and the fanciest hot chocolate you can imagine.

The atmosphere at the hotel is great! We sat outside the restaurant on the veranda, played board games and at diner. The food at the hotel is okay. It's a bit pricey and not awesome. I think I liked items on the kids menu as much as or more than the grown-up stuff, although there were some good choices there... More

The dining room at the Wawona hotel was pretty good especially considering your other options are quite limited. Service was good and food was tasty. It's probably a 45 min drive from the valley but 25 from Yosemite West where we stayed.

Very well presented as a traditional historic restaurant. The food is good for a secluded area. Well liked by locals. The service was great.

We drove out from the valley to have lunch, what a pleasant surprise. This place is quiet and serene with a wonderful pioneer center adjacent to it. Food was great and reasonably priced. Service was outstanding.

Service is good, food is average, after all it is a national park, but make sure to sit on the deck and enjoy!
