“Nice little steakhouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great meal at a small local restaurant. Worth the drive from Tenaya Lodge in the Town of Oakhurst on RT41. The steaks are excellent as well as the California Chicken Avacado Sandwich. A good value for the money.

“Excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This place is fantastic - offering good quality food and drinks and at very reasonable prices. We went here every night we were staying in the area - and earned 10% discount on the 2nd and 3rd nights for being repeat customers. The steaks are excellent. The bar offers a good range of local beers as well as the usual drinks. The barman was very helpful. The place is very popular - and rightly so - so sometimes you have to queue but it's worth it - and we didn't ever have to queue for long.

“Great Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We had three meals here and they were all excellent with the flat iron steaks the stand out meal. The service is very friendly and I think this is the number one restaurant in Oakhurst.

“They feed you late”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I went there after a hike, dirty and tired and very late (9.45 pm) and still got a table and a decent meal, this was surprising and very welcome. The food was good and so was the service. If you get there after you spent the day in Yosemite I would say its an awesome choice!

“Too busy to serve us at 8 pm?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Walked in at 8 pm with only a few tables full. The couple in front of us were seated and told they didn't have any menus to give them they had been too busy... we were told they couldnt accommodate us they just had a table of 5 people come in. 5 people?? We were excited to try this restaurant after the great reviews on trip advisor. This place wasn't busy. Maybe they needed more help. It was a monday night. We could've waited around to be seated but there were no promises of how long we would wait, which seemed crazy as there were plenty of vacant tables!!! After being in yosemite we opted to go elsewhere.
