I realize there aren't many places to eat in Yosemite, so I suppose I shouldn't complain about WhiteWolf Lodge, but I'm going to. The service was great, so let's start off on a high. Unfortunately the food was just average. I had duck, it was quite dry but the sauce was pretty good. The spinach salad was very bland. My... More

The staff at White Wolf lodge are so willing to make your experience positive….However….. no coffee for breakfast IS a deal breaker. Many excuses were attempted by the staff but it was not for just one day is was days with no coffee. Patrons smiled and were polite but deep underneath there was frustration with the management. As for me,... More

This place two stars because they have good tea and there is no other place to stay within 30 miles. Let's start, the good was the tea The bad was the Tuesday breakfast that did not have hash browns ( their shipment was late in being delivered) and little quarter sections of waffles being served instead. Did I mention the... More

Disregard reviews prior to 2016.... management has changed and, based on our experience at least, things have gone to hades in a hand basket. Our party of four's dinner: Decent salad with fresh greens dressed with basalmic vinegar; not a dressing, just the vinegar, no oil, no other seasonings. Soup: warm milk with ground broccoli, no seasonings, no potatoes, no... More

This is a great breakfast stop on the way to upper country or a hike. It opens at 7:30 and the breakfast is a buffet, but the food was good. The bacon was very crisp, the eggs well cooked and the waffles were very good. You can also get oatmeal, fruit, cold cereal , etc. the prices are very reasonable... More

I liked everything about the White Wolf. The welcome was great, I had to wait 20 minutes to be seated but that was not a problem because Francesco entertained outside diners and I with his acoustic guitar. I am a solo traveller and, as do all customers, was seated with other diners at long dining tables. This added to the... More

This was our 2nd meal at WW, but our first meal as walk-ins (we were staying at the lodge last time). I knew the routine -- called ahead a week ahead and reserved our spot. Also walked through the list of allergies that my daughter had. We then had to call back and add two more to our party, than... More

Tuolomne Meadows was a 1.5 hr drive for us, so after a whole day of lolling about the meadows and Lake Tenaya, we started to drive back, wondering what we were going to do about dinner. We had noticed signs for the Lodge on our drive up, so we decided to pull over to see if they had a restaurant.... More

We were lucky to stay in a hard side cabin for 2 nights, and it was very nice. Rustic as expected and the bathrooms could use some updating, but perfect for what we were looking for. We weren't exactly looking forward to the "family style" dinners, but it actually went very well! The food was very good both nights -... More

We had entered the park at 0600 and by the time we reached the White Wolf Lodge turned off were ready for a morning meal. The little country café was a treat and the breakfast buffet was nice. Price per adult $12, child $8 under 5yrs free. It provided for a nice stop and break before hitting the road to... More
