Wawona Hotel Restaurant, Wawona, Yosemite National Park, CA

Wawona Dining Room/ Wawona Hotel on Urbanspoon

During my recent backpacking trip to Yosemite, the walking started in Wawona. I had dinner that Thursday evening, breakfast the next morning, and then dinner again Sunday evening.

Dinner was an excellent pot roast in both cases. There was a decent amount of beef, a fair amount of veggies like carrots, and some really good skin-on mashed red-skin potatoes. The pot roast had excellent gravy as well. That was some of the best gravy I have ever had, perfect consistency and flavor. The pot roast was tender, had trmendous flavor, and was an excellent meal. The tea was very good also. I had a brownie sundae for dessert Thursday, liked it. Service in both cases was pretty good. My check was $40.35.

Breakfast Friday morning was the buffet. There wasn’t a lot on it; I got scrambled eggs and some potatoes and such. Pretty lean. My check that day was more than $20, I don’t think it was very good value.

So hit the Wawona for dinner, and find somewhere else for breakfast.
