We had a great meal here on New Year's Eve. Looks really big from the outside but a lot smaller inside. Our waitress was great. Very attentive making sure we all had everything we need. The young waiters didn't seem so sure but still were pleasant and helpful if we needed them. I had the potato wedges to start which... More

Agree with the previous review that the lady wasn't too friendly and they are indeed short-handed. Despite the sub-optimal standard of service, the food was great. The steak were tasty and done to our liking。

I would usually have a steak at a steakhouse, but at $30.00 for a 10 ounce rib eye, I choose a chicken dish. This is not the in the ranks of a deluxe restaurant that can (or should) charge so much. Mainly price seems elevated to take advantage of tourists. Food was OK, no complaints, but not really all that... More

I had the Teriyaki chicken with pineapple. My friend got the California Chicken both were good options. Plenty of food adequate service considering the restaurant appeared fairly empty. Although it sounded like there was a function in the next room. Had to ask for refills on our drinks. Food was good quality and portions were well sized for price paid.... More

Arrived in Oakhurst late after a long day of hiking. Review said place closed at 8pm. Hotel said place would be open til 8:30. We're seated promptly,great people, great food. Not rushed at all with late arrival. Warm rolls,pretty and fresh salads, delicious steak and yummy sweet potatoes.Unfortunately no room for dessert but could have taken it to go.

We hit this little steakhouse on our way home from Bass Lake. Decor nothing to write home about and the food was decent but overpriced. Service was friendly but didn't override the just ok food so we won't be back.

Bit of a wait for a table, but then the service was good. Unfortunately, we didn't get a seat with a view and the atmosphere was just OK. But the menu is very varied and we were pleased with what we ordered. The value for money seemed good as well. Almost 4/5, but the music/lighting/decor just didn't appeal.

We were seated near what looked like the kitchen, although the host claimed it was a serving station. No matter what it was called, my view was of a freezer chest and refrigerator through a door where servers were going in and out. Despite our request to move, the host declined to do so, claiming that it was necessary to... More

Although neither my wife nor I had the steak, our meals (salmon and shrimp) were good. I think that my salmon was frozen not fresh, and I doubt that the shrimp were grilled. But the portions were more than adequate and the food was well prepared. Service was very good and the atmosphere was fine.
