Step back in Time

Food is good but not a spot for a foodie. Felt like I was back in the day of the Titanic but in land. Piano player, Tom Bopp, was outstanding and entertaining. If "glamping" in Yosemite, it's a decent meal out if you do t feel like cooking.

What a great find. Just when you thought there would only be so-so dining opportunities in Yosemite, go out of your way to visit this historic hotel and be certain to dine in the restaurant. If the weather is cooperative, choose the beautiful porch with a lovely view.

Food was fantastic! A little spendy, but I understand that they need to ship all food in from outside the park, which must contribute to the cost. If you can sit out on the porch for a meal, please do!

We only ate here once and the food was average, nothing bad but nothing to write home about either. The building could do with some renovations and bringing up to date a little, but other than that was ok.

This hotel and dining room are straight out of the past. You feel like you are entering a different era. Open windows and fans provide the air conditioning. Great fare, and awesome views. Get a window table, worth the wait.

The complimentary continental breakfast is excellent, and the service is attentive and quick. We appreciated the fact that the dining room is large and can accommodate large groups.

It was a wonderful step into the past to visit this historic hotel. I had visited here with my family when I was a child so it was especially meaningful to me. We had a lovely lunch on the veranda. The food, service and view were great.

The place is very picturesque. The food was delicious. I got their club wrap and cole slaw. The wrap was huge and the slaw was full of flavor. It was very reasonably priced. Definitely a good value for an excellent lunch. The staff were attentive and courteous. I look forward to visiting again.
