I had the Teriyaki chicken with pineapple. My friend got the California Chicken both were good options. Plenty of food adequate service considering the restaurant appeared fairly empty. Although it sounded like there was a function in the next room. Had to ask for refills on our drinks. Food was good quality and portions were well sized for price paid.... More

Arrived in Oakhurst late after a long day of hiking. Review said place closed at 8pm. Hotel said place would be open til 8:30. We're seated promptly,great people, great food. Not rushed at all with late arrival. Warm rolls,pretty and fresh salads, delicious steak and yummy sweet potatoes.Unfortunately no room for dessert but could have taken it to go.

We hit this little steakhouse on our way home from Bass Lake. Decor nothing to write home about and the food was decent but overpriced. Service was friendly but didn't override the just ok food so we won't be back.

Bit of a wait for a table, but then the service was good. Unfortunately, we didn't get a seat with a view and the atmosphere was just OK. But the menu is very varied and we were pleased with what we ordered. The value for money seemed good as well. Almost 4/5, but the music/lighting/decor just didn't appeal.

We were seated near what looked like the kitchen, although the host claimed it was a serving station. No matter what it was called, my view was of a freezer chest and refrigerator through a door where servers were going in and out. Despite our request to move, the host declined to do so, claiming that it was necessary to... More

Although neither my wife nor I had the steak, our meals (salmon and shrimp) were good. I think that my salmon was frozen not fresh, and I doubt that the shrimp were grilled. But the portions were more than adequate and the food was well prepared. Service was very good and the atmosphere was fine.

This restaurant was the first one we ate at on our recent vacation to visit the High Sierra area National Parks. We were there between the lunch and dinner hours, so the restaurant was not at all crowded. The wait staff was courteous and efficient, the food was very good.....we had sandwiches and salads.....and the restaurant offers a great view... More

Our senior dine out group was bigger than the number we'd made reservations for and six came late.. Could have used more help. Servers did their best, most dinners were good, specially the steaks. Not everyone was satisfied but as a former waitress, I wasn't surprised. My artichoke chicken was excellent. Having eaten there many times, I was disappointed that... More
