Restaurant
“Cheryl's Diner is a family run Kernville staple. Good for your basic diner food cravings (homemade meatloaf on Mondays) & the staff is super friendly. A good spot if you have a pup with you since there's a patio!”

Restaurant
“Beautiful, cozy, comfortable, romantic atmosphere with amazing dishes. Great for a date night but also good for kids as well. We love their mushroom appetizer, clam chowder and baked lasagna. ”

Mexican Restaurant
$$
“Kernville's Mexican Restaurant is a simple family place with pretty decent Mexican American food. Good chips & salsa, homemade tamales and tasty fajitas. Nothing fancy here and beer only - so if you're in the mood for a Margarita maybe grab one at Ewing's after!”

Cafe
“Comfort food in a small restaurant where you can see and hear them cooking your food behind the counter. I love the atmosphere and that small town feeling... And I especially love their French toast! ”

Restaurant
“The Airport cafe is kind of a fun place to have lunch if you sit outside. You might catch a plane or two landing or taking off. Inside it can be very smoky. The food selection is ok and very basic diner-y, but it can be a less crowded option during peak tourist season when all the breakfast & lunch places in town are packed. During summer they offer a BBQ dinner outside on Saturday nights that's worth checking out. It's also a good place if you like to take your dog to lunch with you!”
