“An Adventure and a Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Love this place for dinner. Ribeye steak cooked by Mike is the best. The music is funky, but cool (One man band type). There is a lot of history connected to this place and Ghosts have been reported. Located about 10 miles from the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. They reallly don't have a wine list to speak of , but you can bring in your own bottle. Desserts are good and the young kids seem to like the childrens menu. This restaurant is connected to the Sierra Sky Ranch Resort in Oakhurst a 100 year old ranch. We have eaten here on several occasions and reccommend this place for an adventure and a steak.

“Great steaks here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

For once, a restaurant lives up to its name, "steakhouse". They really know how to cook meat here.

“Not really a steakhouse but charming environs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

The Branding Iron is housed in a historic ranch building, and it is charming, But the food varies in quality by the month, and steaks are not its specialty. Place can be cold in winter, bring a sweater.

“Honest about blue steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I asked for Blue steak and they told me honestly they couldn't do it as steaks still in fridge. Loved the honesty, but expensive
