Oakhurst and the surrounding area offer quite a few restaurants to choose from. Here are some of our favorites. We recommend checking Yelp for directions, hours of operation, tips and reviews.




South Gate Brewing Company

This is a local favorite with a great selection of burgers, pizza, salads, tacos, and entrees along with - of course - their own house-brewed beer and a great selection of wine. It can get pretty busy sometimes so it’s best to go during the “off hours” to avoid a long wait for a table. 40233 Enterprise Dr, Oakhurst. 559.692.2739.


Plazuelas Mexican Restaurant

Excellent Mexican food in the plaza with the Raley’s grocery store in downtown Oakhurst. Their tacos are delicious. 40015 CA-49, Suite 203, Oakhurst. 559.658.7771


Marisco’s Colima

Tasty Mexican food on Highway 41 near the Deli Delicious (which is also good choice for sandwiches). Their burritos are probably the best in town. 40208 CA-41, Oakhurst. 559.683.6066.


Matsumoto Samurai’s Kitchen

A fantastic local food truck selling poke bowls, sushi rolls, Tokyo fried chicken, gyoza and more! Great food and they are great friends of ours. Bonus: they use our commercial kitchen to prepare their food! Check their Facebook page or call for current location. 559.273.9035.


Idle Hour Kitchen

Our favorite winery is now serving weekend brunch! Check the Idle Hour Facebook page for the latest menu and call for reservations. 41139 CA-41, Oakhurst. 559.760.9090.



Solid Italian food on Highway 41 along with a full bar upstairs. 40282 Hwy 41, Oakhurst. 559.641.5588.


El Cid

An Oakhurst favorite for many years, El Cid offers a variety of slightly upscale Mexican dishes along with a full bar for margaritas and more! 41939 Hwy 41, Oakhurst. 559.683.6668.


Smokehouse 41 BBQ

Oakhurst’s best barbeque located - you guessed it - on Highway 41. Recommended. 40713 Hwy 41, Oakhurst. 559.642.2271.


The Hitching Post (Ahwahnee)

An area staple that also happens to be the only restaurant here in Ahwahnee! This is a classic roadhouse bar/diner/family restaurant with pool tables, TVs and more. If you’re lucky it’ll be karaoke night! Don’t order too much - the portions here are enormous. 42592 Hwy 49, Ahwahnee. 559.683.7917.


Love Cafe

A new addition to the area serving tasty vegan dishes. 39993 Hwy 41, Oakhurst. 559.642.5683


Round Table Pizza

Not the best pizza in the world but it’s the best in town. They are also one of the only places that will deliver out here! Be sure to tell them your cabin number when placing your order. 40034 CA-49, Oakhurst. 559.683.7472.


Erna’s Elderberry House

If you’re looking for something really special and price is not an issue, make a reservation at Erna’s. This 5 diamond restaurant offers a world class, fixed price nightly menu with truly gourmet food, wine, and cocktails. It’s truly a restaurant that would be at home in the San Francisco high end food scene, located in Oakhurst. 48688 Victoria Ln, Oakhurst. 559.683.6800.

Wineries & Bars

Idle Hour Winery

A lovely spot run by some of our favorite people. Stop in for a tasting or enjoy a bottle on their patio overlooking the Fresno River. All of their wines are great but the award-winning Tempranillo is their crown jewel. 

Snow Line Saloon

A new honky tonk bar with great drinks, great food and great music. A fantastic new addition to Oakhurst's nightlife.


Reimer's Candies & Ice Cream

Excellent spot for ice cream and sweets on highway 41 as you are heading to Yosemite. We haven't had a bad ice cream flavor here yet (and trust us, we've done plenty of testing). Sundaes here are also delicious. 41969 CA-41, Oakhurst. 559.642.3232.

Judy's Donuts

You're not going to find donuts better than Judy's located right on Highway 41 in Oakhurst. Maple bars, plain glazed, pick your poison: they are all absolutely delicious. Highly recommended. 40444 Highway 41, Oakhurst559.683.2095.


Bass Lake

Ducey’s on the Lake

A local tradition for many years, Ducey’s has a nice view of the lake and a variety of options for everyone. Note that it can be fairly expensive for dinner; if you arrive early you can take advantage of a discounted menu. 559.642.3131.


The Forks Resort

Classic roadside diner food. They are known for their burgers and fries. 559.642.3737.


Casa Velasco

Excellent little Mexican restaurant at Bass Lake. Call ahead to make sure they’re open. 559.683.2272.


Miller’s Landing

Comfort food with outdoor seating and a great beer selection. 559.642.3633
