We stopped for lunch after our Cathaven visit. Food was good and service was very attentive. Cute directions and very comfortable. We ate inside although they have outside dining. My grandson enjoyed his spaghetti and I liked my hamburger. They have a very reasonable children's menu. We would stop again if in the area. They do not open until noon... More

My brother and I went on a one week fly through tour of many of California's natural wonders. On our way up to Sequoia National Park we happened to find Gena's Place. Thankfully for us as it was the last accommodations for miles and it was getting late. It turned out to be the surprise of the trip. The place... More

This is a very cosy place to have lunch, I stopped by on my way from Sequoia National Park. The service and atmosphere is very nice and the food is fine. I had a burger and can highly recommend it, if you like burgers :)

Not many places to eat in the area. Stopped in here because it was there and glad we did. Excellent crunchy outside-moist inside fried chicken. Homemade cherry pie, too. The place had some very good music playing. Seats and booths. Right on the road into the park. Would go to again.

When you first walk in you get the beat vibe the owner is amazing...the food is the best I've ever tasted. Also has the best karaoke and good times when you get the kids to sleep. Stayed 2 night and left feeling like I've found a new getaway spot. WILL FORSURE BE BACK IN THE FUTURE!!!! :)

We visited Sequoia national park for our honeymoon and looked for somewhere to stay last minute. All the lodges were full so we went a short way out of the park and found Genas place. Its very basic but was perfectly fine for the one night. Its a family run place. I know the owner lives there, runs the motel... More

Gena makes the best homemade lasagne I have ever tasted, as well as pies and cakes. While the prices may be a little high the portions more than make up for it. Plan on taking a lot your meal home.
