Curry Village Tips (17)

Curry Village: The Salad was great

The Curry Village restaurant is a cafeteria style restaurant. You can go through pick what you want and buy it at the counter. We got some Italian food with two sides, a salad, and a drink and for both of us it was about $40. Whew. Super expensive. They also have a pizza place, a bar, and a coffee shop all in the same building. The food was not bad but the salad bar was awesome and had everything you would want on a salad, BUT watch out because they weigh it for the price. Ekk

Favorite Dish The salad bar

Curry Pavillion: Breakfast buffet

This thread has not been updated some entries from 2006. The food was more than acceptable. Al you can eat with a great selection. Not a finer place for breakfast in Yosemite Valley and perfect for families with kids. If you can't find something you like here your not hungry.

Favorite Dish Make your own breakfast tacos.

Pizza Deck: Good pizza and draft beer

Very good pizza. It takes a while to get your pizza once you order. They had some good fresh fruit and salads too, and cold draft beer. Try and avoid the usual lunch and dinner hours so the line won't be so long. If you go early before 5, it shouldn't be too bad. Grab a table before you even order if you can, they are somewhat limited.

Favorite Dish Pizza

The Paviollion buffet at Curry Village: Buffet is a great value

The food is good, great selection and a very good value unless you are a super light eater. It's open for breakfast and dinner. We had a big breakfast at the buffet, and snacked during the day on trail mix and other stuff, then had dinner. There are lots of tables and the line was pretty short.
Open from 7-10a for breakfast, 5:30-8:30p for dinner. Get there at least 30 minutes before closing time for the best selection.

Favorite Dish Lots to choose from...make your own tacos, etc. Something for everyone.

Curry Village: pizza anyone?

Yosemite National Park probably has one of the most elaborate conglomerations of eating options of any in the park system. The hotels all have restaurants of various calibers depending on the type hotel it is but the real find is Curry Village with a near boardwalk feeling to its open air food court. There is Mexican food, pizza, and a full grocery store. Yosemite Village is similar though lacks the rag tag carnival flair. Whatever your preference, you will not starve and they seem to keep the prices at bay considering they have you at their mercy in what is a remote area.

Favorite Dish The Burrito stand has strange hours and it not open for dinner so only we ate there only once. It was $10 for two burritos and they were just okay and not filling enough for the price. Luckily, there was a pizza place and this is perhaps the perfect food for carb-starved backpackers. We ate there twice, always right after a multi-day trip and were quite satisfied. This place was always packed and at dinner time positively slammed. They serve beer and getting a table looked to be a nightmare. We took advantage of the burrito stand being closed as there were tables in front it it as well. We would grab a table and a six-pack of beer from the grocery store right along side it. Doreen would wait with the table and beer while I went to order the pizza. There was always a big line for this but it moved quickly enough. The best part was after paying for the pie, they gave you a buzzer so you could go back to wherever you were hanging out and once you heard it go off, you could go and retrieve your goodies. A large pizza with a few toppings was about $20 but we saved quite a bit by eating right around the corner as a six-pack was about the price of two beers at the pizza place. It was great for people watching and had a real buzzing feel to it.

Curry Village Food: Bring your own food.

Imagine giant cans opened by college students with no interest or particular fondness for cooking or campers and you have the buffet at curry village. It didn't even taste good after 10 hours of half dome.

Favorite Dish The pizza is edible.

Curry Village Buffet: Food was great!

I don't know what everyone is talking about. The food at Curry Village was great! Tasted good and the cooks were constantly refilling near-empty entrees. I'm looking forward to eating there the next time we go!

Curry Village Pizza Deck: Pizza and more

I've heard that the pizza at Degnan's (at Yosemite Village) is better than Curry Village, but I didn't bother taking a shuttle bus halfway across the valley and instead ate at Curry Village. Curry Village's pizzas aren't very special, but aren't too bad either. At the least the prices here were somewhat lower than Yosemite Village and the Curry Village buffet.

Favorite Dish Cheese pizza... didn't have too much choice about that. A bit on the greasy side, but it wasn't too bad, especially after a day of hiking.

Curry Village buffet: All you can eat

The quality of food at the Curry Village buffet really isn't very good, but after hiking a day, anything tastes good; for $12, you can have all you can eat, with a good variety of dishes. In general, food here is rather salty and greasy; also, after 6:00, lines start forming. Best to come at 5:30, get all that you want, then sit down and eat. Their soda machines basically dispense water and high fructose corn syrup (uncarbonated). Still, there were enough acceptable items to eat a meal here.

Favorite Dish Hard call... probably their baked potato bar, wasn't that bad... the menu changes every day, you can find it at the entrance to the buffet.

Don't go here!

I had dinner at the restaurant in the Curry Village Pavilion... bweh! I really couldn't eat any of it, it tasted aweful! I wish I picked another (more expensive) restaurant in the park. I really can't recommend going here!
