We are used to eating very well for substantially less money - Gateway was of lesser value than our usual bang for the buck. We sat outside on the deck, which was nice but chilly even with a heater- that was fine. Filet Mignone was...More

Before entering the park is a good option! Food was good. Service could improve a bit. Accept credit cards.

nice spot on the river with lots of windows for beautiful views. We just had burgers but they were delicious and the service was quick and friendly. It is right outside Sequoia's gates so perfect place to stop for a beer or dinner after your...More

526paulao, thank you very much for the review! The park's view certainly is a sight to behold, and what better way to take it in than over a great meal!

People stop at this restaurant, just because people do, but food is not that great, it can get very expensive, when you are expecting somethign else.

FABULOUS Bloody Mary with my country fried steak, eggs, hash-browns and fruit. Typical SYSCO type food, not handmade country fried steak but all in all was okay. Service (her name was Jazimine or something like that) was excellent. Cute, professional and great all around.

We ate dinner here the day after Thanksgiving and I really enjoyed my plate of "leftovers" and my husband enjoyed one of their hamburgers. The food was pretty good when considering that this place is remote- right outside the entrance to the Sequoia National Park....More

We visited here twice and will definitely visit again when we return for another trip to Sequoia. We visited several places in Three Rivers but this was our favorite. Quiet and relaxing with a great setting right next to the river. Kyle, our server, was...More

The Gateway Restaurant is indeed at a lovely place, but that's the only positive aspect of it. Prices in general are way to high in comparison to the quality of food and drinks they serve. The meat for 35$ was chewy and simple. Besides that...More
