“Good ciabatta and southwest seafood salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

CIABATTA bread was the best ever anywhere: hot and lightly crunchy, with none of the typical teeth-challenging toughness and chewiness.

SOUTHWEST SEAFOOD SALAD had on it perfectly-cooked (not overcooked) srimp and big scallops and lots of them, on a bed of lettuce with pretty spicy chipotle dressing (spiciness, 7 on a scale of 0-10) which was well balanced by wrapping it in a bit of hot flour tortilla. Black beans and diced tomatoes balanced the taste and consistency very well.

MENU had options of 1 crab cake (side), 2 crab cakes (appetizer) or 3 crab cakes (entree)--nice! And at least 4 sizes of clam chowder--nice!

The next time I need dinner in Oakhurst on my way to Yosemite and don't have ample time for Woody's, I'll eat here.

“delicious crab cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The restaurant looks a bit simple and it was chilly on our visit, but staff is super friendly and fast, and food was good.
If you visit this crab cake restaurant, I think you should try their specialty; the crab cake. It was delicious!

I'd like to recommend this small restaurant, and I would come back here for sure.

We hit at the dinner special time and found the place packed. After a short wait we got good food at a very good price. The service was fast and friendly, and we would go again.
