Love this brewery...friendly staff, great food! Love the wood fired pizzas! Love their new 1864 Ale in honor of Abe Lincoln's signing of the Yosemite Grant. Would highly recommend this brewery!

We are locals and were really excited when we heard that a micro-brewery was going in at Oakhurst. To avoid the crowds we went mid-week for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, as well as the beers we sampled. It was good enough for a repeat, however, this time we went at noon on a weekend. Big mistake. The problem is the bar/restaurant operates as "Seat Yourself" and you order at the bar. The restaurant staff does nothing to keep track of who is the next party to be seated. That's fine when there are empty tables, but when the restaurant is busy people hover in the dining area, waiting for a table to open up. Once that happens its a mad rush for a table and then you still have to go to the bar and stand in line to order. If you make the mistake of ordering first, you could easily find yourself with food and no table.

Went here whilst visiting Yosemite as a result of reading the reviews on here. We were not disappointed. Great bar, good selection of ales, great food and good service. Has a real local feel about the place, busy and a buzz. Reasonable prices too.

In this 6 weeks of touring the USA, eating out at least twice a day, South Gate Brewing Company is in our top 2 and the other one cost 3 times as much.

Full, noisy, fairly routine menu done excellently with great, relaxed service and high quality beers (and a wine list we didn't explore this time).

This is probably not the place for a quiet early date (until you know the other party really understands the good things in life). It may also be a risky choice if you are trying to demonstrate sophistication as the high quality of the execution of the simple menu may go over the head of some.

It's a pity about the plastic baskets used for some dishes but I can't wait to come back, I may even buy a T shirt next time,
