“Good enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Check the hours before you go. This is an out-of-the-way place, so limited staffing and limited hours. The dinners come with a nice salad and a choice of baked potato or rice. We had veggie burgers one night, and barbecue chicken the other night. Both were very good. In the morning, the oatmeal was instant, so skip that. The next morning, we had the breakfast special, which was eggs, potatoes, and toast. It was delicious. You can add meat for a couple of dollars more.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The convenience store had It's-Its, which I recommend. The view of the river is beautiful. The inside dining area could use a pest strip, as there were quite a few flies, but that's just part of getting back to nature, right? You'll be so happy here, it won't matter.

“Ok, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We stopped here because the options are few when you drive to the end of the road in Kings Canyon. Healthy options are limited. But I will say that the staff was friendly. And that can go a long way toward making a meal pleasant. There is also an excellent view of the river.

“Pretty good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Closes around 8-8:30. After that there is no food except what you brought in until about 7 am the next morning. Reasonably priced and pretty good quality.

“Cedar Grove is its own reward. Food is sidelight.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Jeez, take cheese and crackers, and enjoy. Better yet, cold beer at cedar grove. Heaven is a cheeseburger at the end of the trail. Everything but the house on it.

“Hike first - food will be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

They say they serve the same food as Grant's Grove but somehow it tastes better down in the Canyon. Maybe our 10 mile hike had something to do with it or it could have been the staff were pleasant and helpful. Have to buy your beer next door and borrow and opener before you go out on the patio.
