My family and I have been going to this restaurant for years. We usually stay in Oakhurst whenever we go to Yosemite. This restaurant use to be across the street at a smaller location. Their current location is a lot larger and nicer but fare warning, it's a bit harder to find now since it's tucked away in the back... More

The place is a little pricey but well worth it. I had salmon that was very good too and moist not... More

It's hard when new owners take over a location that you have gotten so use to and love the old owners but Well done. Went there the other day with a friend and the meal was wonderful. Easy location, easy parking, service was wonderful and spot on. Will be back soon with more friends! Thank you

Our new neighbors spotted us in the crowd of people at the Christmas lighting. They invited my wife and I to the Crab Cakes Restaurant for a meal. I had a hard time with the name Crab Cakes, I am a steak and potatoes man. They served steak. Oh boy what a steak it was. Don't let the word Crab... More

Crab Cakes has new owners, and so I was concerned as to what awaited me there. The clam chowder has a different flavor [no rosemary] and consistency than before. I didn't care for it, but my husband loved it. The salad was crisp and fresh. and all the meals portions are adequate, but the crab legs were plentiful, sweet, and... More

a great place to eat with a friendly atmosphere. We have dinned here with our Miata Club many times before they moved to their new location which is much larger. Great service.

Crab Cakes was the highlight of our Yosemite vacation. Catilyn was such a sweetheart and very patience with my husband's high maintenance food order😆 The bartender Shane is a rock star and should go on tour for his one man show. I kept coming back for the ahi tuna salad. I swear I'm still chasing the experience of that salad... More
