My family and I have been going to Crab Cakes for the past 15 or so years, the food and service has always been fantastic and I can honestly say I had never had a bad meal during the previous ownership. My family and I went to Crab Cakes about 3 weeks ago. The staff seems to have completely changed,... More

We came here for dinner with our dog when visiting Yosemite. They have a very nice patio area where dogs are allowed. It was spacious enough to accommodate our medium size dog that likes to stretch out. Food and service are both excellent.

I very rarely give a five for anything as I always feel there is room for improvement but this restaurant caught me on a good day and we had a great meal served by willing and friendly people. The Crab Cakes were indeed very good as a starter and set the meal up nicely.

I haven't been to Crab Cakes for years the old owners were vulgar, temperamental and hostile. I thought I would give the new owner's a try, scratch that one off the very few restaurants in Oakhurst. It is sad, the old menu had a lot of seafood reasonably priced, it's okay now, but 105 bucks for four no appetizer, one... More

We ate dinner at the Crab Cakes Restaurant. We wore our outdoor clothes, but I would suggest nice jeans and a nice top for others! The wait staff was very nice, and the food was really good. We will for sure go back if we find ourselves in Oakhurst again.

New menu apparently with only about 5 seafood entrees. Food and service were good but fairly expensive.

We ordered up their signature dish hoping to be blown away, and it was a bit of a letdown. The crab cakes were properly cooked on the outside (crunch), but the goo in the middle was anyone’s guess. I did taste some crab within, but unfortunately it was undercooked and lots of filler was present. The only saving grace from... More

The food was pretty good. They are under new ownership now so we went and tried them. The service was really slow compared to how it used to be. Especially since we were up in the bar area. I'm hoping that as soon as they get the swing of things, the service gets better but the food tasted wonderful. Prices... More

Really loved the crab cakes which I had as a main with a side of salad. My husband had a steak which he was very happy with.
