Lots of food choices, some offerings better than others and no alcohol about sums up the food court. Prices are what one would expect in a National Park so bring some money... What impressed us the most was the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff with special request and offering suggestions.

But the food is not on the quality side, and not cheap at all. But because there are no other logical options, this is the most reasonable place to eat

Yosemite Valley Lodge's food court is reasonably priced ($25 for two people) and has adequate selection (pizza, burgers, fries, pasta bowls, grilled chicken sandwiches, panini's) affordable pricing and lots of places to sit.....however be prepared to eat outside on a bench during summer tourist months.

Given the limited dining in the Valley this is a good place to get some food but that is all. The lighting by fluorescent lights give it a very cafeteria feel. The service was very good although not the fastest and food was good but not something I would go out of my way to eat.

Our family (two adults, two elementary age kids) dined here two nights during our Yosemite stay. We appreciated the wide variety of options for food within the food court and the reasonable prices. There is a roving staff member who comes around to bus your table, and ours was especially friendly. Definitely worked best for our family to eat here... More

If you have low enough expectations, you won't be disappointed. Cafeteria style food at best. Give it a pass and try one of the other options nearby...

We dined here for lunch on a Wednesday the week before Easter. The only word to describe it is CHAOS. The park is not fully open at this time of year, so there are minimal places to dine at lunch time. Thus, most of the visitors are jammed into a few places and this one in particular absorbed the brunt... More

We had four meals here: two dinners, one lunch and a breakfast. The kids liked the pizzas and hot dogs and the donuts, while we had a simple (non remarkable) salad, several salmon burgers (chose for several meals as the adults liked it), and soup. We made the mistake of getting here during peak hours once, but then liked it... More

We found the food (cheeseburgers and salmon burgers) to be excellent - once we got them. There was a long line at the grill and the grill was manned by 1 or 2 incompetent, inefficient guys. Even though there was a long line and most folks were ordering burgers and their grill would probably accommodate 30 burgers at a time,... More

We had breakfast here while stopping at the lodges. The food was fairly bland and lukewarm, but the place was reasonably priced. I see it as a needs must kind of place as its a captive audience.... That said, the selection and range of products is quite good.
