“Horrible breakfast”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Staff were grumpy and food was terrible. Cold toast ("you can put that in the microwave to heat it up"), extremely poor hash browns, luke warm coffee (don't waste your money, get the Peet's on the other side for free with the coffee coupons from the front desk, its good and hot). Hard to understand how you can ruin a simple breakfast when you charge as much as they do. Agree with the comments about prison food and at least we had the option of only eating here one morning.

There is no excuse for this.

“Really good for what it is.”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

You will dine with visitors and valley staff in this large location. I will say that the number of options are many and the food was good. In venues such as this, we always go for the a-la-minute options to avoid any potential issues. Therefore, a burger that was grilled to order in front of me took a little longer, but was worth the wait and the soup was good and hot as well. Good stop when hungry and in the area of the valley.

“inedible patty melt and grumpy service”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

got a horribly inedible thing called a patty melt that was on a hamburger bun, with hamburger fixings. the person who took our order was grumpy. it was burnt and gross. YUCK - highly Do Not Recommend. my husband had the veggie burger, it was better than mine, but bland.

“I liked the soups”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

While in the valley, this is where I ate the most. It's a little expensive for the type of food you're getting, but this is Yosemite. I ate a lot of soup, and it was all very good. I also thought that the short-order cook did a mean grilled cheese. Everything I had here was mediocre to really good. Again, yes it's crowded, you might have to stand in line, it's more expensive than at home; but you are in Yosemite, and if any of these things surprises you, you should have done more research.

“Beware the Food Court”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Expensive, bad institutional food you might get if you were in a prison. Just good enough to keep the inmates from rioting.
