We arrived first for dinner (maybe that made the difference in our experience). Joe was our waiter and he was excellent very attentive and left us alone to enjoy our dinner outside by the Merced River and looking at a bear (in the very distance). The staff was very nice including the hostess. We both had grilled chicken, fresh steam veggies and choice of FF/rice or red skinned mashed potatoes along with a nice but limited salad bar and soup option. The meal was expensive ($20 per entree), but the food, the service and view of the river made the entire dining experience worth it: a wonderful meal. I would recommend a try.
