We had an excellent experience at the Gateway Lodge and Restaurant from the time of our arrival until we left. We arrived at 1230 pm and we were told the room would not be available until 3pm so we ate lunch at the lodge..which was excellent food. We were told at that time our room was ready...yay..so we finished lunch... More

We visited the Sequoia National Forest and stayed over at the Gateway Lodge. The room is lodge quality and clean. We had a great meal outside on the deck and watched the river flow strong. The owner of the lodge made sure we were happy and comfortable. They took care of us and even shared his amazing pappy van winkle... More

Restaurant sits ned to the logde. You can sit outside next to the river. They have a nice menu and the good was great. There is a large selection of wines available. We stayed at the Buckeye Three Lodge. That's next door, because of that they give 10% off.

We were going to eat at the Wuksachi Lodge in the park but they do not open the Dinning room until 5PM. Nor the Bar. So went back and stopped here. March is a great time as the river is running high and gives a great view. It was early evening 6:30, so we had sunlight and listened to the... More

I wish I had access to wifi while staying near here so I would have learned about other experiences. We had almost the same as another reviewer with microwaved, unedible food. We arrived at 8pm, were told they serve until 9pm. Don't do it. Maybe the food is cooked fresh at 6pm, but we were given old rubbery rolls, inedible... More

We went for lunch and the next day breakfast (we were reluctant to go the next morning but wanted to not venture far since we were going into the park for a full day, and our last day). Lunch wasn't great on our first day. Our waitress (Heidi) seemed rushed and bothered-impatient when I asked questions about the menu, which... More

The food is mediocre, pricey. We got a salmon burger and veggie burger which were both average. The service was extremely slow. The waitress came to us 15 mins after we were seated and our food took an additional 30-40 mins. All in all we wasted time just sitting around.

A real 'hidden gem' right next to the entry point to Sequoia and Kings canyon national park and with a very nice view over a river.
