The service was a little slow. The coconut shrimp was disappointing. Ribs were good, but not great. Didn't try the steaks.

We went for dinner, and the place was just plain AWESOME... I had the Rib-eye and it was to die for..Cooked perfect... The service was just bang bang...They were always coming around to make sure all is well... Will definitely eat here again is i'm ever back up in Yosemite... But you decide...Happy Travels

The food was decent. Their "signature flat iron steak" was good, but not great. Their margaritas were also good, but not great. Even the bread was good but not great. They seemed to be a little understaffed, so it took a while after we got seated to get our waitress to take our order- she was fine, it just seemed... More

We enjoyed our very nicely done medium rare flat iron steak with sweet potato at Sweetwater Steakhouse. We enjoyed it with a glass of Coppola Cabernet. We had soup as our first course. They also have good home made rolls. Service was good. Food was good. We had a table by the windows with views of the hills. We could... More

What you expect from a steakhouse...nothing more. The food was good. The flatiron steak was flavorful, the ribeye was better. They did allow us to share a steak, a plus for those of us without huge appetites. Prices were what you might expect, maybe a little less. Overall, it was satisfying, but not stellar.

In a nutshell the staff were terrible. We were told to wait ten minutes which turned into twenty, we were ushered to the bar to wait which had no staff. A couple who came in after us were seated before us. We were left to wait in the doorway. There were plenty of vacant tables. One server discussed online purchasing... More

Food is excellent and resonably priced. Homemade cooking with excellent steaks. Service was excellent throughout our dinner. Recommend you try their homemade soups. Very good.

OMGosh the breakfasts at Sweetwater's just get better and better. The eggs come out cooked the way you order them. I had Eggs Benedict on Father's Day that was the best I have ever had. Plenty of hollandaise sauce. The hash brown potatoes are expertly cooked to your request. The potatoes they use are very flavorful and the right choice... More

We stopped here for dinner after a full day of hiking and exploring Yosemite, and had a fantastic meal. The steaks were flavorful and perfectly cooked, served with your choice of potato, and we each had a salad. Our server was very attentive and fun.

Yes that happened. My mother travels with her own tea and ordered a glass of hot water. My boyfriend and I had a steak breakfast and the steaks were amazing. However the service was horrible and yes upon receiving our bill they charged us $2.59 for a cup of hot water. Guess only the cold water is free with a... More
