The menu isn't much to write home about (corn chips with salsa, chilli con carne, soup of the day, sandwiches... no hearty meals or sides of fries or anything) but the atmosphere was fantastic. Roaring fire and plenty of weary travellers speaking all sorts of languages and enjoying the wilderness together. We spent the election night here coincidentally (New Zealanders... More

We came in here looking for a good meal with great ambience at a working-persons budget level and we found it. After a day of adventuring around Yosemite and checking in to our motel room we were very relieved to find this nice option still open.

Food; not exactly cheap... but this is one of those places where they can take what they want... not too many... More

Warm and friendly staff and a good place for a few drinks. Good wine and a few good beers on tap too. Most tables are next to huge windows with fab views into Yosemite. There is a roaring fire in the middle of the room, which was nice to sit around once it became dark. We didn’t fancy anything on... More

If you are looking for a drink and a sandwich or lighter fare this can be a good option. Get there early or you will probably wait for a table. Because of the crowd that is usually there, the service can be a little slow although friendly but there are not a lot of options for fast service and decent... More

The menu here is limited and the food is OK but not great. It seems like more of a drinking than eating establishment.

Horrible service, went in sat self per signs waited 30 ish minutes for a server even for a drink order. Approached the bar to ask if we were going to get a server for our table. We were told they are running a little slow because they had a new waiter. Only 2 servers for whole restaurant. Need more help!!... More

Ate twice here, and each time was uninspired by the food. You cannot now book a table for dinner, so we were told we had an hour and thirty minute wait one evening while only a half hour wait on another! Service was just OK. Staff seemed too busy.

Friendly, casual atmosphere with good attentive service, a bar, tv, windows, comfortable chairs and decent pub menu. A welcome break, little or no wait, no or few kids.. kick back, converse about your adventures, have a drink and some hint to eat

We ate dinner here two nights because we were staying at the lodge. Everyone was so friendly - and the food was good. We loved the atmosphere - the wine list needs a little help - especially the white - but we really enjoyed it.
