“Don't bother”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch and dinner at this establishment... it is mediocre to say the least. I'm a true foodie and this was far from excellent. The food is definately cisco-run-of-the-mill but priced well above fair market value. It's location is the best, as you can sit outside next to the river. It defijetely beat being poisoned by the local mexican resturaunt and pizza joint. Plan on spending around $25 per person... beer is almost $7.

My suggestion... turn back away from the park and there$s a great sub shop 10 miles back.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food was great! We had three meals there, and each one was very tasty. The view of the river from the dining room, or the deck is wonderful. The service is slow, so don't go there unless you can take your time, and don't mind waiting. It is a bit expensive, but affordable for a special occasion.

“Great View, Friendy Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

On our way to Sequoia/Kings Canyon we stopped at The Gateway Restaurant and Lodge. I've stayed at the lodge in 2008 and have no complaints. The food at the restaurant is good but the quantity is a bit skimpy but the prices are reasonable. The waitress we had was great and accepted our requests for some slight changes to the items we ordered but the cooks did not comply. If you are in a hurry, this may not be the place to stop. Though the views are gorgeous, our lunch from sit down to leaving took 2 hours (we arrived at 12:30).

“Good ribs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. About the only place worth eating at unless you are willing to settle for mexican or pizza. Pricey.
