For many years, even when staying elsewhere in the Valley, my wife and I (and fellow travelers) have been coming to the Ahwahnee bar for dinner. It's a limited menu and pricey by all but Yosemite standards, but far less than the Ahwahnee Dining room with none of the pomp. Good drink menu, great service, fast and cozy -- far more intimate than any other place in Yosemite. On the menu they have some wonderful European-style platters to share, plus a range of other nicely done dishes. Makes you feel like you've found your own secret spot. But it's our secret, so don't tell anyone!

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Yosemite. Both times the food was fine and the service was okay. Their chicken/apple salad on a croissant role was very good, as was their soup. $15 for a martini is a little high, but it was a double. The bar has a nice atmosphere, with old pictures and artifacts on the walls.

On our hiking break, we ended up at the Ahwahnee Bar for a snack and beverage break. We sat outside in October and it was beautiful. Awesome Old Fashions and yummy appetizers (not cheap, but take a look at the view!) Complaint: Squirrels creepy!

I like to mix it up, go for a healthy hike then enjoy a good meal! The Ahwahnee Bar is perfect, it has a great menu, the food is nicely prepared, the servers are always friendly, and it costs much less than the Ahwahnee Dining Room which is great for breakfast but out of my price range for anything else.

With both inside and outdoor patio seating, you can choose between fresh air, and warmth or air conditioning, according to the season and weather. Either way you have a great view, and the squirrels that dart in and out "cleaning" the floor of crumbs are adorable.

Try a spicy bloody mary, or a selection of hot teas. The soup is always wonderful. My favorite is the local, organic Diestel Roasted Turkey, but as a wrap instead of a sandwich. It is big enough to share with a friend, and comes with a side of fruit salad. Yummy!
