“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

The prime rib dip was tasty. I got it with pepper jack cheese. The chicken sandwich was tasteless. I don't recommend it. The portions were average. Just enough to fill you up.

“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The price was terrific for a family of 4. Excellent steak. One of us had tiger shrimp that was exceptional. Wanted to get back to try the trout but the kids wanted pizza the 2nd night we stayed. Don't pass this restaurant up. It doesn't look like much from the outside and the parking is tight, but when we ate there, there was no other restaurant in the area that could match it for taste or price. A gem.

“Wonderful surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This was a great surprise in a little tourist town outside Yosemite National Park.

If you're staying in Oakhurst to save some money while visiting the park, don't miss at least one dinner at Sweetwater.

“Excellent Prime Rib....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Prime rib was cooked to perfection. Salads good, as well as baked potatoes. Interior needs some refurbishing. Booth seats were ripped. Faucets in bathrooms would not flow without holding it down. How do you rub your hands together to get the soap off while holding the faucet down?! Not to mention, not being sanitary.

“Probably one of the best choices in this town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had the Prime Rib - however we have been a little bit disappointed, as it was served re-heated on a hot griddle and not a cut from the whole piece as we expected it to be. Quality however was good and the service was friendly.
