Very busy small restaurant, with a cool vibe. Interior décor is also very busy. Service nice and friendly. I had scallops which were very fresh and huge, my partner had beef which was tasty although a little tough.

In the South Yosemite area, there is a great Cajun restaurant in the town of Oakhurst. The gumbo soup was excellent and the blacken Sea Bass was also. The flavors of the big easy was here in this mountain town. All Y'all will enjoy.
