We come here every year for vacation on Shaver Lake. The food is great, l would come for the spinach salad alone. But you can't get a side potato and the mushrooms are very limited. It probably has to do with the availability of produce this far up the mountain. But a fun lodge atmosphere and nice 1960s and 70s background music.

We go to Camp Edison at Shaver Lake every summer. One tradition is to dine at the Trading Post restaurant. It is a homey place that was first established in 1927 (according to legend) and looks like it hasn't changed very much. So step back in time for a great dinner in the mountains. We always enjoy the food and the atmosphere, whether sitting inside or on the patio. I ordered the rack of lamb which comes with soup and salad and is about as good as it gets. 3 of our party ordered that and all enjoyed it. Other items were the Filet Mignon, and the Ravioli, all of which were raved about at the table. The soup was a summer vegetable that was absolutely delicious and the spinach salad had a wonderful dressing. Ordered the apple pie for dessert which was more like a cobbler but had fantastic flavor and a soft crust - scrumptious!

We love to go here for dinner since it is so close to home. Reservations are suggest on busy nights. We most recently had the prime rib which was good. Service is always good. Atmosphere is nice since it is a woodsy, log place with old décor. Menus pretty much is always the same. Love their spinach salad and the dressing. Food pricing is getting to be a little on the high side but that is consistent with most places now a days. It is a come as you are place.

We actually live in Shaver Lake and the people in our community consider it a nice evening out to go to dinner at The Trading Post. Great menu with many options and everything I have had to eat there has been fantastic. Reservations needed.
Located up in the High Sierras above Fresno, CA. It is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL area. In the summer months there is also outside eating in a quaint and beautiful outdoor area.

The Trading Post Restaurant is the ONLY restaurant in Shaver Lake with a full dinner menu. Did I mention it is only open for dinner? It is locally owned and operated and has a 4-star menu. It serves everything from steaks, chicken, to seafood -- all expertly prepared. Reservations are recommended but not required most nights. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, delicious dinner meal in Shaver Lake, this is the place.
