We ate here during our stay near Yosemite. We ate in the bar area of the restaurants after nipping in to try one of the inventive and tasty cocktails from the barman Shane. The pub itself was really friendly and we got chatting to a couple of locals which was great. The menu was really extensive and had lots of fresh fish options. We would really recommend people to visit here if they're in the area!

The start of our evening was good, the front of house guy who showed us to our seats was very welcoming. Our server was also very good and knowledgable about the menu. The experience started to loose it's appeal when the food arrived. I had chosen cajun fish which was really disappointing. The fish fillets being much smaller than I expected. My Husband's dish, a fish platter was much more plentiful and tasty. We had arrived at the restaurant about an hour before closing. Towards the end of our meal we were the only ones left. As we finished our meal, we were aware of two of the younger members of staff walking around and around clearly checking to see if we had finished, no doubt they were hoping to be off home soon. They were not discreet about it at all and we found it extremely off putting. If our original server had still been around, I would have called her over and had a word about it. We eventually finished our meal and they were right at our table collecting our plates and producing the cheque. As we left, I was hoping to see the front of house guy again and tell him about this last part of the service and suggest that the younger members of staff undertake some training in how to treat customers. alas he wasn't there either. It kind of spoilt our evening and this coupled with a disappointing meal means that I wouldn't return or recommend it to anyone else.

We visited Crabcakes later in the evening & the dining room had already been closed. (It was a quiet time in Oakhurst because of the recent shutdown of the National Parks) We were given a nice table upstairs in the bar area. We had a lighter dinner of soup, salad, and the crabcakes. They were outstanding--crispy outside, delicious inside. The soups we tried were very good, homemade, and the salad was delicious, crisp with lots of "extras". Our meal was served with warm rolls. The prices were great and it was such a wonderful, local restaurant.

I recently had the opportunity to dine in at this establishment and was greeted by a young man who promptly took us to our seats. The restaurant was so clean and the service we received from Elisa and the host we forgot his name far exceeded our expectations. To top it off the food was great!!!! We will return and defiantly reccomend Crab Cakes to our friends passing through!!!!

After being in Oakhurst for several days, we were looking for something different from pubs and BBQ's so we tried Crab Cakes Restaurant. The service was good and the food was good. We had the special which was pan seared trout. It was good and the potatoes were also good, however the veg was awful.
