I wanted to try this restaurant on our visit to Oakhurst last week but unfortunately they had some technical problems with propane. We went to the bar upstairs for a drink before dinner and Bill the bartender was excellent. He made a great martini and had a lot of information to share. When we got ready to go downstairs for...

Had a delicious dinner here with our son and daughter-in-law. Menu included seafood, fresh fish and meat dishes. We ordered coconut shrimp, fish and chips, and grilled salmon and each of us gave it a thumbs up! Wish we had time to come back again!

After a long day of hiking in Yosemite, our group of six was hungry for a steak. This restaurant was one of the few serving dinner past 8:30 PM on a Saturday night so we gave it a try. We could not have been happier with this restaurant, and not just because we were extremely hungry. The seafood is fresh... More

This is our second time here. Both as a planned mini-get-a-way family trip to Yosemite National Park and stayed at Oaklhurst near the south date of Yosemite. We ordered crab cakes, large bowl of clam chowder, and an appetizer side of potato skins. The crab cakes with their special sauce and generous soft baked bread with butter spread were the... More

Excellent service and care for our disabled son. Good clam chowder (my wife is from Boston) very fresh fish and vegetables. Seems to handle pressure of tourist crowd. We have been coming here for 7 years.

The food and service were okay but not up to the description of "fine dining", upstairs and down. The prices are a little high for the menu. I think they're shooting for that but the night we were they may have been a little off. Note the review comments about the downstairs booth sizes - they're actually kind of small,... More

The food was ok, the service so so. The booth was too small to be comfortable. It was overpriced. The stairway to the tiny upstairs bar and lounge was filthy. The upstairs was not inviting. I wouldn't go back.

A welcoming greeting, friendly staff, steaks were consumed scallops swallowed, wine imbibed. All good, for our tastes the food was a tad too salty, but this was a useful place and a satisfying dinner.
