Absolutely delightful, delicious, unpretentious!

This restaurant easily should be number one in the Mammoth area.

We had a nice family dinner at the Smokeyard. It was pretty quiet since we ate on a Sunday night, but the service and food were excellent.

With fish on the wall and pine wood paneling you would think you were in a vintage cabin... Oh wait you are! This isn't retro cabin sheik this is original and that makes it even cooler. Love arriving at this secluded lakeside Lodge and the history. Then just getting down the hallway to restaurant is a reminder that codes and... More

Try their home spun ice creams and sorbet in the beautiful and cozy log cabin interior. You feel like you are in another decade when you dine here, there are not many place in the states like it.

In fact, our meal this past weekend would be excellent no matter where the restaurant was located. Service was excellent...helpful, knowledgeable and made us feel very welcome. For dinner we had the french onion soup, torchon foie gras, grilled cobia and the venison osso bucco. Every dish was on point and would order the same thing tonight at home if... More

Best steak I ever had and the service was second to none with Billy C. I cant wait to go back there with my family. You must check out the best dinner in Mammoth Lakes.

This restaurant is a perennial favorite for good reason. It is romantic, the food is delicious, the service is great. Dinner is a bit pricey compared to the rest of Mammoth but it is well worth it. Lunch in the winter is served in the bar area. It is quite cozy. The offerings are soup, chili and sandwiches to go.... More

We almost passed on this place given some of the recent reviews but decided to try it out. We are glad we did. We arrived a few minutes early and waited in the Tamarack Lodge by the fire place. This was actually very nice. We were eventually seated and the hostess explained the menu was relatively new. We decided to... More
