Great service and great food. We waited about 5 minutes only before we had our table ready. Our waiter Bill was awesome. I had the baby back ribs. It was one of the best I've had. My wife had the seared scallops and my daughter had the beef Alfredo. My other kids had the crabs. They were smaller than what... More

This is a great family restaurant, with entertainment for kids (a fishing game at the table!) and food that makes everyone happy.

We had an lovely meal here & very much enjoyed it. The staff were extremely helpful & friendly. The food was tasty and they had a really wide variety. Generous portions went down well after a day of mountain walking!

This place has a great atmosphere, wonderful food, and friendly service. We found it by accident and decided to give it a try. So glad we did! Enjoyed the experience so much that we returned again the next night. My husband had a ribeye steak that he proclaimed to be the best of his life (and he's very hard to... More

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
