Restaurants near Groveland

The quaint, but sometimes bustling town of Groveland has some great options for post-river grub, although after a long day on the river, it doesn’t always matter what you eat, it just matters that you eat something. hpim7246

Cocina Mexicana: (209) 962-6651
A favorite amongst guides and private boaters, this awesome authentic Mexican restaurant is always packed during prime hours. Service is quick and the food is tasty, but they only serve beer, so if you want a margarita, you’ll have to head across the street afterwards. Located on Main Street in “downtown” Groveland.

Iron Door Grill: (209) 962-6244
The oldest saloon in California, a night out at the Door is often an historical and cultural experience. On weekends, a mixed crowd of river folks, rednecks, and tourists heading to Yosemite find themselves dancing together to great live music. Drinks aren’t cheap, but they usually are stiff. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is also served 7 days a week. Located at 18761 Main Street in “downtown” Groveland.
