Everyone in town recommended Mogul for a steak dinner, so we tried it. We were seated after a few minutes at the bar, and the server explained that she would actually be cooking our protein. She did a great job, just the way we ordered. Simple food well prepared. Great service in a pleasant atmosphere, friendly service.

We returned to Mogul as we have always enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and good food over the years. This time our party of 4 all ordered meat items, the flat iron steak, the porterhouse, and 2 elk chop dinners on special. Everyone was extremely pleased with their meals and Rusty our server cooked all the meat to our satisfaction. The... More

While not the greatest atmosphere, this is a nice restaurant with good value for the price. I have eaten here many times with my kids over the years, and we have all enjoyed it. Decent bar, but mostly they just do the basics well and don't charge a fortune for it.

Went for hubby's bday and the service was ok but the fact that the server grills your foods is a little odd. I didn't feel the the food was well seasoned and my steak was really gamey. Liked the salad bar though!

I have been coming to the Mogul since the days when you would grill your own steak. We ate there several nights ago and had a wonderful meal. This is one of the most consistent restaurants in Mammoth. There is still the great salad bar. There is a small bar that makes great drinks, with a wide variety of single... More

Phenomenal meal. Elk steaks on the bone, lobster and petit filet surf and turf, and a kid's hamburger. All excellently cooked and delicious. Plus, Rusty, our server was present and his demeanor superb. #1 in Mammoth. P.S. I'm a foodie with a killer palate.

Both food and service were excellent. Everyone in our... More

The last time I ate at the Mogul was thirty years ago and it is both comforting and a little disturbing to note that, as far as I can tell, the place -- the decor, the furniture, the menu -- is completely unchanged (with one exception: thirty years ago they let you cook your own steak). There's a reason for... More

I ate here once before, maybe two years ago, and enjoyed it. This time I was with a friend and we enjoyed the food so much that we are here twice. They have a quite excellent salad bar, especially for early October in the mountains of Mammoth Lakes. Between the two nights my friend an I had four different main... More
