Breakfast was good!

We arrived hungry and wanted a meal prior to viewing Mariposa Grove. Good breakfast (eggs benedict and eggs/bacon) not cheap but a beautiful view and relaxing late breakfast prior to our hike. Good service, I could picture Roosevelt pulling up any minute! Check out the nearby art center for... read more

We arrived hungry and wanted a meal prior to viewing Mariposa Grove. Good breakfast (eggs benedict and eggs/bacon) not cheap but a beautiful view and relaxing late breakfast prior to our hike. Good service, I could picture Roosevelt pulling up any minute! Check out the nearby art center for helpful guide advice and last minute items.

The pot roast was amazing! Continental breakfast included in the room rate - lovely breakfast and you can upgrade if you want a heartier breakfast.

We were a group of twenty one people, including six mothers, that enjoyed brunch on Mother's Day--and it proved a fine choice to treat our Moms. We did have some minor issues at the start but the restaurant manager came to personally apologize and get everything on track. From there on it was an outstanding experience. The food selection was... More

This is a beautiful lodge , dating from 1879 , that generates a ''Grand Hotel '' feeling in the dining room . The selection at lunch includes a good variety of soups , sandwiches and light entrees . The French Onion Soup at $9 was a great choice for 2 of us while the other couple shared a sandwich which... More

We had lunch here on the way back from Mariposa Grove (which is closing to vehicle traffic). The hotel and restaurant are old and charming. The menu didn't have a lot of selections but what we did have was very good. Our wait staff were superb. Loved the atmosphere and ambiance.

The hotel and its foodservice are both a throwback. The staff is attentive, if not limited in ability. The menu is limited for dinner. Earthy meals like pot roast or a small steak. Breakfast is coffee and either a complimentary continental or a more expensive offering from the menu. Seating is first come, first served and at night they have... More

This property needs some work. It needs a broader menu, and the staff didn't seem up to par. I think this is one area where there is room for improvement.

Well prepared, hearty fare surrounded by a lovely setting. The service was very good. Not a lot of trendy glamour but very fresh good, food that was more than adequate. In fact, it exceeded expectations.

Considering this is pretty much the only restaurant in the area, they could easily get away with mediocre food and surly service. But they don't... they have a menu that features local products and the service is friendly. Before or after dinner, you can relax in their lounge and listen to the pianist Tom Bopp, who must know hundreds if... More

The thing that sets this hotel and restaurant apart are the staff. The servers were well organized and took a personal interest in our dining experience. It was exceptional. The food was great and could not have been happier.
