This is one of our favorite places ever. It's just 13 miles south of Yosemite, definitely worth stopping by for beer and delicious healthy food (lunch and dinner). The Sierra Sandwich is fabulous, as are several of the salads, specials, burgers and other dishes. Want something non-alcoholic? The root beer is brewed on site! In addition to the yummy food and excellent beers, the atmosphere is special. All the staff members are friendly, warm and welcoming. Kids are welcome too. South Gate hosts live bands from time to time.

Stopped at South Gate on a whim and ended up having a great experience. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The food was excellent and the beer was even better. They even have a house-made root beer. I had one of the specialty sandwiches (beer battered cod) while my wife had the South Burger with avocado. Both were well made and extremely tasty, and the portions were perfect. We finished everything. Now for the beers. I've had three: Sawtooth IPA, Oatmeal Stout, and Tenaya Red IPA. If you enjoy hoppy beer, I strongly recommend the Sawtooth. The nice touch is that you can take the beers home with you in one of their "growlers". I highly recommend it and plan to return for some of their other menu items. Fotunately for me, I am now a local.

ok, this is a place you want to keep to yourself so that you can find a table when you arrive...but it's important it stays in business. First of all, friendly folks running the place, second, very well balanced beer selection fairly priced, and lastly, great food, well prepared, presented, and good value. I really enjoyed the red IPA on both of my visits, friends enjoyed the amber and pale ales. It's a little hard to notice as you're driving by, but worth searching out. Remember, only tell nice people about it.........

When you’re on vacation it’s always nice to venture away from the tourist areas and find a family-run place that caters to locals and visitors alike. The South Gate Brewing Company in Oakhurst is one such place. This busy and lively spot is set back from the main drag (Highway 41), but not so far out of the way that out-of-towners can still find it.

This is a working microbrewery, so you’ll find an impressive variety of ales to choose from. My son opted for the locally-themed Tenaya Red, which he said was excellent. For those who are looking for a non-alcoholic alternative they also offer draft root beer, which was delicious.

The menu features various “pub-style” favorites like chicken wings, burgers, fish and chips, pizza and sandwiches, plus daily and seasonal specials. They also offer several meal-sized salads. All the dishes we ordered were flavorful and well-prepared.

So if you’re ever in Oakhurst and you want to see how the locals live, this is a good place to start!

I came here on a recommendation, and man was I surprised. The food was great, the beer was awesome, and the overall atmosphere was great too. It is a small location, so it does get crowded during the normal eating hours. But I definitely recommend this place to anyone that enjoys trying out breweries.

Thank Gh0st333
