I ate dinner here on a night when power had gone out in the national park so the place was very crowded and understaffed. Nevertheless my shrimp and vegetables were pretty good. The salad bar was pretty meagre.

Nice kitchenette. Microwave. Every you need to cook. Reasonably priced. Warm. Big bathroom. And a fairly quiet Hotel. We were very happy

The food is average, not terrible. Service was good and the portions were big. The steak looked good, but the taste was a bit bland. The wife needed A1. I had the ribs and the meat was tender, a bit mushy. The sauce was bit too sweet. When you're out here though, this isn't a bad option.

We booked four nights at the Yosemite View Lodge because of location to the park. We were not disappointed. We had a riverside room and enjoyed our view from the third floor. The pizza we ordered from the on-site restaurant as great. After touring the park daily for four days it was always nice to come back to our room.

This restaurant is tucked in the corner and is one of the handful of restaurants where you can grab grub before going to Yosemite National Park. The bartender and the restaurant lead - definitely they are the friendliest in this place! Their hostess can work on her smile and being more welcoming.

The food is nothing special, but not bad, especially after a long day in the valley. I would go for the Pizza.

I have just had the worst breakfast ever for the amount of 20usd. Juice and coffee where paid on the side and they were disgusting... literally juice from powder... the buffet was ridiculously bad.... really bad quality food... not even the eggs where good... I feel intoxicated! Service terrible too....don't recommend this to anyone!

Good selection of quality food in buffet style. Allowed us to have a great breakfast and quickly start our day of hiking in Yosemite. Very polite service.

Not many places available when you come out of park so it was convenient. Good breakfast! Also had dinner several nights, food was good and staff was attentive. Would go back.
