“A fun experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is not fine dining ... but it is fun dining. You will relish the dining options after a long day on the trail, and you might like the opportunity to share stories with some people you've not met before they were seated at your table for 8! This (along with the meals at White Wolf) is the best food you'll find in the Tuolumne area of Yosemite.

“Dining in the high country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I shared one of the daily specials, the chicken parmigiana, with a friend since the serving was huge. After a long day of hiking, it was delicious. The seating is tables of eight so we met some nice people who shared their experiences in Tuolumne Meadows.

“unique dining experience- average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

eaten here on several occasions over the years during visits and continue to enjoy the experience. The lodging is tent camping rustic and the dining hall is an old structure covered with canvas. So the quality of the food is very good and a pleasant surprise considering the setting.
The menu for dinner consists of about four specials and these are all very good. You also can get other items such as burgers. The vegetarian burger got good compliments. The breakfast menu also had a continental type breakfast plus you could order from menu. All food was average but considering the location you could probably say exceptional. If you don't enjoy the food, go outside and get over it by looking at the views in Tuoloumne Meadows.

“Good food, but high-priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I had the mountain trout and my wife had the chicken piccata. Both were very good and the atmosphere was great. But, be prepared to pay a high price for your meal.
