“Good Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

The restaurant was good, especially considering how busy it was. The adjoining bar was pleasant, but we chose to drink on the patio, overlooking the river. Food was generally good, although my steak was disappointing.

The salad bar is good, I wished I had just had this and nothing else.

“Great value for the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Considering that visitors are a captive audience the management has not taken advantage of this and hiked up the prices. Good quality food and drink at reasonable prices, firendly staff and prompt service is all that you need and we got that here. Would recommend to anyone.

“We had better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

restaurant at the Lodge could be convenient considering that there is not a lot of choices in that area. We spent a long days hiking in Yosemite Park and wanted to eat good diner before crushing in the bed. We tried the restaurant after particularly long day and wanted to be close to room, with reservation after reading some of the trip advisor reviews. Service was good, one waitress bot lots of other help went smooth. I had a rice pilaf ( which con sited of rice and noodles to my surprise - almost like it was a left over) very average and pork chop which was so hard that I ate only 1/3 of it ( not cooked all the way through). My husband want me to point it out that his steak was good. We ate there only 1 time in our 6 days, more restaurants in park or Yosemite View Lodge up the road are better.
