Take a break from the beautiful but arduous drive on US-395 and stop for a bite at Nicely’s. The wait staff is prompt and friendly, and they serve quality food, though the menu is not very glamorous. It is a down-home diner kind of setting,...More

Stopped here with my son late one night on our way to Yosemite. This restaurant has a warm, welcoming feel, and decent if not fancy food. I had a Ruben sandwich which was good but could have been better if it had a little Thousand...More

My husband had the fried chicken, which was very good. I had the special of the night, a beef tenderloin dish with noodles which I didn't eat much of. The salad that came with our meal was crisp and of good portion. I'd go back,...More

We ate several meals here while we stayed in Lee Vining and also while we stayed in Yosemite. The soups were very good and the salads were very fresh. They had homemade turkey as a special one day and that was delicious. Nothing fancy.

Nicely’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. I noticed it is busy for all meals, but I only ate there for breakfast, almost every morning of my one week stay. It’s a diner atmosphere, good menu and the food was very good. A garden omelette was...More

Stopped on our way to Yosemite. It was a great little diner - like walking into the 1960s or 70s. The food was pretty standard diner-fare but really so reasonably priced, the staff were great, and the serves were large! I had the specialty -...More

Nice restaurant, nice decor, nice atmosphere. Kept my drink full. Had a very unusual but delicious salad. Lots of meat, and lots of cheese. Couldn't eat it all.
