Description: After a day of discovery, retire to Jackalope's Bar & Grill to relax and enjoy pub fare, delicious local beers, wines and spirits.

Children have their own menu and can entertain themselves by coloring with complimentary crayons. If they're lucky, they can even catch a glimpse of Tenaya's legendary Jackalope (hint: look up!).

“Let down by mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Menu options and food taste/quality was very average. I was a bit let down by this, considering how nice the Tenaya Lodge is and the price of the food (California Burger with just fries $17 if i remember correctly). The burger i ordered tasted very boring. I imagine that if this were served in any city restaurant it would probably struggle for business. But, as this is one of few dining options in the Yosemite Park area and within our hotel grounds, this is where we ate. My boyfriend ordered the same in addition to fried calamari appetizer, which he liked. I feel that we both ate the food and tried to like it since we worked up quite an appetite from hiking all day long. Atmosphere was casual and service was friendly. I was also disappointed to learn that this Bar & Grill shares many of the same menu items as the Sierra Restaurant next door and also the hotel's Room Service (might as well just have ordered in). I suggest driving down the 41 for 20 minutes to Oakhurst for better dining options.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This restaurant located in the Tanaya Lodge is OK. After waiting to be seated (despite the restaurant not being very busy) the service was quick and enthusiastic. The choice of food is large but not very imaginative. The food is OK - in fact, our burgers were quite good. Prices are high (presumably because of the location) and the restaurant is infinitely better than the pizza restaurant at the same resort.

“Best choice in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

There are very limited restaurant choices in the area and Jackalope's is one of the better choices. The menu is diverse and everything we tried was good.

Given the remote location and limited choices, prices are higher than you would expect but don't let price influence you to try lower priced options in the area - you get what you pay for and at Jackalope's at least you get good food, good service, and a great atmosphere.

“Amazing burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

You seriously have to try their Jackalope Burger, it's an absolute monster. I couldn't finish it on my first attempt so had to go back the next day to do battle again - burger lost. Excellent food at a good price.
