Things are going downhill fast! I don't think this was the proverbial restaurant from hell, but it has certainly earned a place in purgatory. Oh well, there's hope for tomorrow. We'll be in Monterey in the evening and Monterey is chock full of restaurants. In the meantime, to Grant Grove Restaurant, which I am fairly sure is run by a low bid concessionaire with all that implies and is the only eatery within a reasonable driving distance. We both had eggplant smothered in onions with rice on the side. About the best that can be said for the rice is that it was cooked. My wife didn't like the grilled eggplant and I don't blame her. This was burnt on the bottom; her eggplant is much better cooked and flavored. However, I thought it wasn't too bad...put enough cooked onions on any main dish and it becomes edible. The ambience was not good but the view of the parking lot was bearable. For a location trying to trade on General Grant's name, surely they can do much better. To top it all off, the service was slow and the server knew it. She saw me staring venomously at her and later brought a complimentary dessert. The poor service was not completely the server's fault, she had been assigned too many tables. Two stars is being charitable. If we come to Sequoia again, we will buy our food at the general store and eat at a picnic table or in our room.
