Not being from N'Orlins, I won't make any claims about authenticity one way or the other, but my crawfish étouffée was mighty tasty. Started off with a bisque, which was creamy and flavorful. Finished the meal with the bread pudding - excellent hard sauce. The...More

Who expected a good Cajun restaurant in the middle of the Yosemite forest? The soup was very good, the jambalaya well seasoned and just spicy enough, without being intrusive. The bead pudding was one of the best I've had. Didn't try the wine cellar. Unimpressive...More

The diverse menu and delicious taste combinations were fantastic. The service was horrible - a girl who appeared to not want to be there, and she let us know. Other than that damper on our anniversary, the food was good.

We surveyed the restaurants in Oakhurst on the GPS and choose Woody's New Orleans West for the suggestion in the name of the dining traditions of New Orleans--and we were delighted by what we found. Woody's has a nice, laid-back ambiance with Mardi Gras paraphernalia...More

This little place surprised us...with it's unique New Orleans style menu. We've been several times - miss their spunky daughter...she was a hoot! It's hit-n-miss as far as food quality. Definitely worth giving it a try!

Cozy ATMOSPHERE: small room, dim on Saturday night with candle on table, masks, trumpet, saxophone on wall, quiet enough to chat. Distinctive MENU, not very long, but with enough variety (sausage, pork, chicken, seafood...) and creativity to tantalize all five of us. The BAGUETTE slices...More

Not a lot of choices in this little town. Shrimp and grits were particularly good. The decor leaves a lot to be desired.

You wouldn't expect to run across the bigger than life flavors of New Orleans in a little mountain town just south of Yosemite National Park, but that's exactly what you'll find at Woody's New Orleans West in Oakhurst, CA. Woody himself is in the kitchen dishing up New Orleans favorites like Jambalaya and Etouffee, all set against the backdrop of the Sierras. Along with traditional New Orleans favorites Woody serves some special creations of his own, drawing from his exposure to cuisines from all over the world. Unique dishes like the Spicy Crawfish Balls and Mardi Gras Pasta have Yosemite locals coming back for more. Woody's New Orleans West offers the best of all worlds: Southern food with a global flair, sophisticated cuisine in a mom-and-pop atmosphere where you'll really become one of the family. Take a couple minutes to look over our menu and get ready to travel into the heart of the South while in the mountains just outside of Yosemite.
