This is a hotel restaurant so it's convenient if you're staying at the hotel. Breakfast is complimentary and pretty basic buffet food. I also had dinner at the restaurant one night since there are not a lot of dining options in Oakhurst. The food was...More

Nice place at the hotel. We had dinner there after we got back from the park. Food was good. The restaurant was nice inside. Nothing fancy so you don't have to dress up. Perfect for a person that is traveling. Service was nice and friendly.
