We had 2 so-so meals in the area so we were not expecting much here. What a nice surprise this place was! A bit hard to find. Turn down 426 and make an immediate left. Turn into the Realtor parking lot and drive on thru to the restaurant on the other side.

We arrive hungry from a long day at Yosemite and chose a table on the outdoor porch out back. Quiet and lovely. I had a glass of Prosecco and husband had a Mai Tai special (he was not a big fan of the mixed drinks). We ordered 2 appetizers to share, crab cakes and Parma ham wrapped prawns. Both were great. Husband had a special of homemade tagliatelle Alfredo with steak. I had a steak salad. The meat was tender, cooked perfectly and the salad fresh. Both of us liked the entrees and there was more than we could eat. A really good meal, attentive service. Next time we will try the Attic for a drink upstairs first.

Nice restaurant. Easy to find location. Recently changed hands. Slow service but good enough food. Not as many seafood selections as they once had but it's still pretty good food.

Of course with a name "Crab Cakes" - we had to try them. The portions were large. You get three crab cakes when ordered as an appetizer...its really enough for a meal. When ordered as an entrée with soup, salad and a side, there was actually to much to finish. Service was excellent.

Having previously eaten here in prior years after visiting Yosemite, we anxiously awaited trying their new location. We were not disappointed with the selected crab cakes and strip steak off their early bird menu. Each was very well prepared with nice sides of red skin potatoes and homemade bread. We shared a creme brûlée which was excellent. Service was good and prices very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food on the early bird menu. We will definitely return when next in the area.

Food and service were all above average. An interesting menu feature is that you can order an appetizer and then add sides for $10., for a full meal. I had the skewered shrimp (5 of good size) along with two sides, and it was more than adequate.
