Had good fish supper out back on the patio, food and service great, nice relaxed feeling, there had been some dust in the air since they set the table and just a bit of fine dust on things, once they were aware we had staff descend on the table from every direction, we were not even complaining just saying are you aware of the problem, they really seem to care about standards. Simple things like we're English and don't do ice with a bit of water in a glass, they heard our accents and asked do you want just water, water with a bit of ice, or the full ice thing, nice.

Good location, staff were great, but the food really didnt do it justice. It was acceptable, but for the prices we expected it to be better.

Clean and an extensive menu. Food was good not great but very acceptable for being near Yosemite. This area is not noted for its food. Bread was served hot and was yummy. We both got Surf and Turf. My husband had the crab cakes and I had lobster. Nthe crab cakes were good. The lobster overlooked and definitely frozen not fresh. The steak was a small ribeye. The steak was tasty but a bit small. It was served with very fresh green beans and red potatoes.

The best part was dessert. A low carb cheese cake caught my eye and it was just like a real NY Cheesecake. Crab cakes also makes wedding cakes so I think someone is a pastry chef!

We are passing through and trusted our trip advisor AGAIN to point us in the direction of a good local place to eat and it did. Good menu, good presentation, hot food and enjoyable. I would recommend it as a place to stop.

The friendly service was helpful to weary travelers. For a special treat, try the bakery's flourless chocolate cake! We liked it so much that we ordered one to go for our anniversary celebration.
