Good food withing the Yosemite Valley Lodge. Come early when in tourist season, or book a table. It wasnt tourist season when we visited, and even then it was quickly full and a line waiting when we' were finish... Food; not exactly cheap... but this is one of those places where they can take what they want... not too many... More

Warm and friendly staff and a good place for a few drinks. Good wine and a few good beers on tap too. Most tables are next to huge windows with fab views into Yosemite. There is a roaring fire in the middle of the room, which was nice to sit around once it became dark. We didn’t fancy anything on... More

If you are looking for a drink and a sandwich or lighter fare this can be a good option. Get there early or you will probably wait for a table. Because of the crowd that is usually there, the service can be a little slow although friendly but there are not a lot of options for fast service and decent... More

The menu here is limited and the food is OK but not great. It seems like more of a drinking than eating establishment.

Horrible service, went in sat self per signs waited 30 ish minutes for a server even for a drink order. Approached the bar to ask if we were going to get a server for our table. We were told they are running a little slow because they had a new waiter. Only 2 servers for whole restaurant. Need more help!!... More

Ate twice here, and each time was uninspired by the food. You cannot now book a table for dinner, so we were told we had an hour and thirty minute wait one evening while only a half hour wait on another! Service was just OK. Staff seemed too busy.

Friendly, casual atmosphere with good attentive service, a bar, tv, windows, comfortable chairs and decent pub menu. A welcome break, little or no wait, no or few kids.. kick back, converse about your adventures, have a drink and some hint to eat

We ate dinner here two nights because we were staying at the lodge. Everyone was so friendly - and the food was good. We loved the atmosphere - the wine list needs a little help - especially the white - but we really enjoyed it.

Lounge was not busy (about 1:30 PM), but kitchen and service were very slow. The server clearly wanted to be somewhere else, and not serving us lunch. Simple sandwiches and a bowl of chili were OK, but not exceptional. Views out some of the window were, of course, stunning.

1st let me say that ARAMARK took over all the operations in Yosemite on 3/1/16. ARAMARK is an institutional operator. Their primary business is Stadiums and Arena's where the food is NOT quality, it's just sheer volume for a captive audience at crazy high prices. We had reservations from Sunday the day before labor day until the following Thursday in... More
