The dinner entree was so great the first night we went back the second night and found it was just fabulous!! Kalen was one of the most helpful, courteous and attentive waiters we have ever met. What a great asset for the business.

Stopped for breakfast on way to Yosemite. There aren't many places that can mess up on bacon, eggs, hash browns and toast. The service was poor. Our smile-free waiter never came by to offer coffee refills or to see how we were doing. Another waiter served his table refills, but he walked right by us as if we were off... More

We stayed next door at best western. Breakfast for three mornings was excellent. We tried dinner twice, but food was average both times.

The staff are very friendly and helpful but at times are really busy so service can be a bit slow . Some of the food... More

As we were staying here we used this restaurant both nights. The Ravioli was just OK but the Friday night Prime Rib was great.

We had breakfast here because we were staying at the Best Western and couldn't find a more attractive alternative. Honestly, not much to say about it and in line with what the hotel offers. Portions were just OK, service a bit slow but friendly. And they could use an update in terms of decoration. Just like the hotel.

This place gets too much bad press. We had a very good dinner. Our server Brandon was polite and really helpful. Overall much better experience than expected from previous reviews.

The menu looked interesting and we waited for the food with anticipation. When it arrived it looked artistic but we were surprised by how little of it there was. By example my wife and boy had the chicken. This was one slice of a chicken breast, marinated with spices and pan fried. There was nice looking veg and garnish but... More
