“Nice restaurant if you want seafood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Both of us ordered the crab salad. It was good. It also came with bread pudding for desert. The staff was very nice and friendly. Food is expensive in Oakhurst. Their prices were not out of line with other restaurants there.

“Superb service, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Tired from an exhilarating day in Yosemite National Park, we chose the the restaurant closest to our hotel in Oakhurst CA.....and what good fortune it was the Crab Cakes Restaurant. Host/owner Roman's genuine welcome was echoed by waiter Michael and even the young woman clearing tables. The 4-6pm special menu offered just what we were looking for, a bountiful seafood salad and linguine with a tasty clam sauce. Items from that special menu included a small desert for each of us.....OR...we chose to share one portion of a terrific Snickers cheese cake. The food and hospitality were perfect. Thanks!

“Relaxing atmosphere with good food and nice staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

While working in the area of Yosemite, I stopped in for lunch at Crab Cakes. I was met at the door by a friendly staff member. I was seated immediately and offered a beverage. The waitress was training a new person and he explained the specials to me, I chose a bowl of new England clam chowder and the crab cakes. The chowder was excellent. The crab cakes were very good also. The meal came with a side of rice pilaf and the best coleslaw I have ever had. I finished the meal with crème Brulé. It too was very delicious. I would rate this restaurant very highly.

“Great food for a small town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We arrived late (9pm) and the dining room was closed but we were told they served a full menu in the bar upstairs so we decided to try it. Our waiter was friendly and energetic. The food was outstanding. We had fried calamari (some of the best freshest calamari we've had - tasted good and was tender not rubbery), Capellini with vegetables and grilled chicken with nice fresh veggies in the pasta, and a nice fresh looking dinner salad with grilled chicken and a pear vinagrette. We didn't get dessert but the table next to us were raving about theirs! We would definitely go back!

“Great food and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I'm a local and always think of Crab Cakes when it goes to eating lunch or dinner. The bar upstairs is a nice plus. You can have food served there while enjoying conversation with your company. The desserts are so good!
