The food was good (and reasonably priced) but the service and decor were great! We highly recommend it, especially after an exhausting day at Yosemite.

We ate at the Branding Iron on a Thursday evening in June 2016. The atmosphere was elegantly rustic. Not a large dining room, but it was not crowded the night we were there. It could get cozy if it were full. The staff were exceptional...More

The Branding Iron Steakhouse is closed for the season. We will re-open in Spring of 2018.
The Branding Iron Steakhouse is located at the Historic Sierra Sky Ranch. You can dine with a touch of history! Sierra Sky Ranch was built in 1875 as the area's first working cattle ranch. Since the early 1900's , the ranch has been many things ranging from a Tuberculosis Hospital, to a World War II Rest and Recuperation Center. Today Sierra Sky Ranch is a 28 room hotel with the Branding Iron as the on site dining option. We offer a full variety of menu items from appetizers to hamburgers, and delicious mouth watering steaks. The Branding Iron also has a full bar, offering ice cold beer, wine and spirits.
Reservations are recommended, but not required.
