“Nice food and staff”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Stopped at Oakhurst after a day in Yosemite, pretty hungry by the time we got there. It was very hot and had started to walk along the main street to look for an eating place and decided to try Crab Cakes. It didn't disappoint. Staff were very pleasant , starter and drinks were served very quickly after placing order. We decided to share the Captain's platter which was very nice ( cod, calamari, shrimp and clam strips) Only downside was that the main course was served to us before we had finished our starter however this didn't detract from the lovely food. I had a surf and turf ( 6 oz ribeye steak, cooked to perfection with coconut prawns) Couldn't fault it at all. My husband had the blackened sea bass which he enjoyed. To finish off we shared the snickers pie....one word delicious!

“Very disappointed!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

My son and i had dinner here
My clam lingini was bitter tasting i told the waitress nicely as she whisked it away rudely! Didnt ask if i wanted anything esle or offer me to see the menu.
My sons food was cold. A while later the chef came out to offer to make another dish which i did have. But by that time my son was done with his dinner.
Also the bread wasnt served until almost the end of our dinner.
The whole experience was upsetting and our server was very rude which made it very unwelcoming! We are local and will not return here

“Most friendly place I've been”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The food was super, the wine selection was very good, and the service was exceptional. Everyone there was friendly and helpful, from the girl at the front desk to the guy cleaning up the tables. Someone has shown some real talent for training the staff to be so consistently nice. Not a sour note anywhere. Friends were dining at a table in another room and they were as pleased as we were with this place.

“Friendly bartenders”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have not eaten at this restaurant, however, upstairs is a nice bar to enjoy a cocktail or two with friends. The bartenders go out of their way to learn your name and make you feel welcome and best of all make excellent drinks. The night I was there, one of the girls in the group wanted a margarita, and it was made fresh and another girl liked the taste of that one, but wanted her's to be sweeter and he tweaked the fresh margarita to suit her tastes and it was totally different but delicious also. We had an awesome time up there. I would recommend stopping in.
