Description: 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.

Never would have expected to find such tasty bites in Oakhurst. Huge portions, perfectly seasoned, great waitress, really liked this place.

We found this gem of a restaurant and all food was homemade, plenty of it and the waitress really knew her menu. Place was empty when we arrived but do not let that put you off as the previous night it was reservation only. Place is simple inside but the food was gorgeous.

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.

What a shame, we didn't even get to eat here. We weren't even acknowledged when we got there-had to track down the one and only overworked waitress and asked to be put on a list. Were told it would be 20 minutes although there were several open tables. Waited 45 minutes, still nothing. Went back in to remind them we were there (several times) and finally a man who seemed in charge immediately put two tables together and we sat. Still no acknowledgement from waitress for 10 minutes. Got up to leave and found them in kitchen to tell them we were disappointed. Were met with a lot of defensiveness and not one sincere apology. So bummed-we were hungry and it smelled great. Their lack of acknowledgement of me as a customer from the very first moment was a bad sign and I should have left then. Now I know! No customer service whatsoever. I guess they think their food stands on it's own. No restaurant is that good.
