Located inside the Majestic Yosemite Hotel, this is a great option if you want an upscale experience. Built in 1925, the hotel and restaurant have been a bridal destination ever since. With vaulted ceilings, stained glass, rich wood, and massive chandeliers, it's incredibly romantic.

  • A breakfast buffet is served Monday through Saturday, from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
  • On Sundays, a brunch buffet is served from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM. This is their most popular service.
  • Lunch is served from 11:30 AM to 3:00 PM. Their lunch menu is more affordable than their dinner menu.
  • Dinner is served from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

Their dinner service often books up, so whether you have a large party or it's just the two of you for dinner, make a reservation! View their dinner menu to see selection and prices.

If you still want the amazing ambiance of the Majestic Yosemite Hotel, but don't want a full meal, or are on a budget, their lounge is fabulous. It's on the left when you walk into the lobby. They have a great appetizer menu, including sandwiches, salads, soups, and other simply delicious bites. The portions are pretty large, so three appetizers for two people is perfect. They have a good wine selection and also serve mixed drinks. I really like a spiked hot cocoa with lots of whipped cream if it's cold outside, and a lavender lemonade if it's hot. Sometimes reservations aren't required, so call and make one just in case. Be sure to stroll through the entire lobby and look at the amazing architecture and huge fireplaces.

P.S. The large gift shop inside the Majestic is amazing, full of Native American jewelry and other keepsakes. Some brides purchase a piece of jewelry to remember their amazing Yosemite wedding day.
