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.

Lounge was not busy (about 1:30 PM), but kitchen and service were very slow. The server clearly wanted to be somewhere else, and not serving us lunch. Simple sandwiches and a bowl of chili were OK, but not exceptional. Views out some of the window were, of course, stunning.

1st let me say that ARAMARK took over all the operations in Yosemite on 3/1/16. ARAMARK is an institutional operator. Their primary business is Stadiums and Arena's where the food is NOT quality, it's just sheer volume for a captive audience at crazy high prices. We had reservations from Sunday the day before labor day until the following Thursday in... More

WE went here because the Mt. Room restaurant had too long a wait. WE waited anyway, because the lounge was way understaffed--2 waitresses for a big crowd. Food was so-so when we finally got it.

Service here was excellent. We came in late and our first choice meal was not available but the waitress got the kitchen to split a meal between the two of us which worked out at the right size for us.

We were seated at perhaps just about the perfect table for taking in a view of Yosemite Falls - something I had long anticipated. Unfortunately, I hadn't anticipated the possibility of the falls being dry. I asked the server if she could fix that and she in good humor played along. That set the tone for relatively good service along... More
