On our way to Sequoia/Kings Canyon we stopped at The Gateway Restaurant and Lodge. I've stayed at the lodge in 2008 and have no complaints. The food at the restaurant is good but the quantity is a bit skimpy but the prices are reasonable. The waitress we had was great and accepted our requests for some slight changes to the items we ordered but the cooks did not comply. If you are in a hurry, this may not be the place to stop. Though the views are gorgeous, our lunch from sit down to leaving took 2 hours (we arrived at 12:30).
