“We weren't expecting pizza THAT good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Most of Yosemite Village/Lodge is set up a bit like a holiday camp and the dining options are mostly cafeteria-style. Degnan's Loft was no different but the pizza was superb. Surprisingly so.

Whether or not we'd always be in the mood for this type of informal dining I don't know but we were the night we went and it was a direct hit.

“Good Pizza, but call ahead and avoid the crowds!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The pizza is good and provides a different meal than the cafeteria-style food court, or the expense of the Mountain Room but the lines are long in summer, and then you wait 20 min for your pizza...we called ahead, and brought it back to our room. Even with the shuttle ride, it was quicker!

“Custom sandwiches - Short lines and good seating!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Well this place makes a custom deli sandwich that is just plain good! You get to call it and they make it any way you want it (reminds me of a song). The lines move slow, but custom sandwiches make it that way! Its OK by me. The lines seem to be shorter as people approace this place from the market and the grill below. They stop and don't go to the next building where service and food are flowing! The market was packed and the line was short here! - Now that is a good tip! Enjoy your sandwich and have a cold beer! Gotta love it!

“Take a pass”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

See my full review under Yosemite Valley. This restaurant's food was bad. Salads were packages produce and meats placed together on a plate. Pizza was below average. Go there if you have no other choice.

“Our favorite daily stop!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Each morning in Yosemite, we stopped at Degnan's to order a custom-made sandwich. We each got something different each day, and LOVED every one. They kindly double-wrapped our sandwiches so they'd stay fresh in our backpacks until lunchtime. We could hardly wait for our delightful mountain-top picnics every day in the most stunning of settings. We love Degnan's!!
