This resturant is the only show in town. Service was good but the food only fair. Typical limp salad bar and some entrees were good others marginal. Have the pizza next door.

My salmon was quite dry. Salad was dull. My husband's steak was over done.
Our server was quite friendly and helpful.
Lots of other people seemed to be enjoying their evening so maybe we missed something.
It is about the only place in town. Luckily there are options in Yosemite.

The bar and restaurant on site is together with a pizzeria better suited to families with children. There is nothing else really in the area so your hands are tied in respect of where you eat. The restaurant serves meat i.e steak, chicken, pork and fish with a few pasta dishes and veggie dishes. Prices are not cheap and they do take advantage of the fact there is no where else to eat in the surrounding area. I had the New York strip 12oz steak for about $28 served with veggies and wild rice .

Ask to sit outside by the river. The staff will tell you nothing is available. Salad bar is fair. Ask for extra bread.
