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.

Certainly wasn't expecting crab cakes so far inland but they were delicious and everything all other recommenders have said. So delicious I could even have managed to eat another one !

The best meal by far during our 4-night stay in the area. Food and service were both excellent. I had a blackened swordfish special and my wife had scallops. We were both very pleased with our choices. The ingredients in the entrees as well as the starter salads tasted fresh.

The verandah was pleasant to sit for dinner on this warm night. The Clam Chowder was delicious. Crab Cakes with rice and zucchini, Blackened Salmon & salsa also good. Not expensive, good service.

Four of us ate here after a day of sightseeing in Yosemite. Since the name of the place was "Crab Cakes" my friend and I indulged and we were not disappointed. They were indeed very tasty. Our husbands decided on the daily special....a Tri-Tip sandwich. The barbecued meat was served on a sandwich roll that had either been prepared for... More
