Where/how to eat while staying in Sequoia for 4 days?

We are a family of 4 hikers who will be spending 4 1/2 days and 4 nights in Sequoia at Waksuchi Lodge in July. We are bringing plenty of "hiking" food and will be able to eat well (ie: backpacking-type food) during the day while we hike, and it sounds like there is a good breakfast buffet at the lodge. But we would like a good meal for dinner every night. Is the restaurant at the Lodge our only option? It doesn't sound appealing to eat at the same restaurant every night....

There really aren't many options for other places to eat. You could go on up to Montecito-Sequoia Lodge, about a 30 minute drive or back down into 3 Rivers. Waksuchi Lodge does have a fairly nice amount of variety in its menu and the dining room atmosphere is pleasant, although none of their food could be classified as inexpensive.

Waksuchi is well into the park, so there are not many other commercial establishments near-by. There is however a BEAUTIFUL park to enjoy.

Dining options are limited in the park. We have eaten at the Lodge twice and found the food to be average to poor. Lodgepole, 15 minutes south does have burgers, pizza, sandwiches. 20 minutes the other direction is Grants Grove with a restaurant and pizza place just behind the restaurant. depending on what door you enter through you actually walk through the restaurant to get to it. The restaurant is so so, but after a day of hiking the pizza was delicious. We had garlic chicken and a pepperoni. With ice cold beer perfect.

Lodgepole is only two miles from Wuksachi Lodge and Grant Grove is a 45 minute drive. When we were at Sequoia a couple of summers ago, they were offering the Wolverton BBQ each evening during summer.
