So it's a bit overpriced for a burger and beer, but it's got charm. Stuffed animals cover the walls. Dollar bills are attached to the ceiling along with a disco ball. Good times. Grab a bite before heading into Yosemite or on the way out.

There aren't many dining options in Groveland, and the Iron Door should probably be your last choice. It looks to be an interesting place and may have been at one time, but now is just another bottom feeder on the tourists passing through. You know the kind. They assume very few customers are a potential for repeat so they price high, put on a cute appearance, and serve indifferent food. I was a potential for a repeat but after one round at the Iron Door decided to take my business elsewhere in the town (either of the hotels, the Mexican restaurant, or the pizza place will give you a better meal and I tried them all). The first clue was that the Iron Door was hiring for all positions. The second was that they were only serving food in the bar, not the restaurant side. The third was the $6 draft beer. The fourth was the hamburger I ordered that had all the touch of having been prepared by someone whose training consisted of flipping burgers at McDonald's. The fifth was the indifferent service. The sixth was the smattering of patrons, none at the bar, no surprise. Perhaps the place simply needs new ownership, because the current owner is decidedly running the placeit into the ground.

We went to Iron Door Saloon on 10/21/2006 on our way from Yosemite and ordered some appetizers at the bar. It's a fun place, we really liked it. Appetizers and service were pretty good. We closed our tab and after that decided to have another round of drinks. Our drinks were served by a different barman. We put a 20 $ bill on the counter to pay for our $ 9.50 check. He took the bill, fiddled around with the register and went on serving other patrons. When we asked him for our change, he told us we never gave him the 20 and ergo there would be no change. Strange enough, he also said he would not charge us for the drinks again (why would he do that if in his mind we had not paid). We were 100% sure of the 20 since we checked our wallet when we took it out. We asked him to check his register but he would basically just ignore us and tell us "Sorry, Dude". We then involved the barmaid who previously served us and she gave us our change. Thank you.
Our negative review is soley based on this barman, otherwise the place was fun.

Cold beer, cold wine, fun bar atmosphere (with a few locals who've had a few too many. Neat history. Friendly service, though not too fast. Good parts of our dinner for six included sweet potato fries, garlic soup, and pasta dishes (portabella ravioli and shrimp with spaghetti). Burgers are overpriced and mediocre, as were the undercooked fries that accompanied them.
