Not a bad choice, but not one that I would feel a need to return to a second time. It's hard to describe, but it just seemed like something was missing that could have made the experience one that I'd be eager to repeat.

Located between Oakhurst and Yosemite, This provided a good meal after a day of hiking. Excellent steaks cooked to our Requests. Salad was super fresh! This is not a fancy place, but staff was welcoming and efficient.

We stopped here on our way back to Oakhurst from Yosemite; it's on the east side of town. The steaks were excellent, the service great, and the bartender knew how to make a good martini. I'd go back

The most recent meal I had here was just okay. My steak and potato were warm, but not hot. The flavors are good, but it's too bad it had cooled off.

We've eaten dinner before at Sweetwater, decent steaks. Decided to try breakfast and were glad we did. Wife had bacon and eggs, I had Western Omelet. Very, very good! My omelet was great and we both agreed the hash browns were outstanding. Cooked perfectly and...More
