We have eaten at The Restaurant at Convict Lake many times. In fact, it is one of our favorites in the Mammoth Lakes area. Firstly, we love the lake and always plan our dinner time such that we can be at the lake for sunset before we go to the restaurant. The food is consistently wonderful; the bread is incredible,...

We camped at Convict Lake Campground and walked over the bridge for the pizza everyone was talking about. Everyone we meet. They were right on. Bonus was family of deer we got to hang out with on the way back to our campsite. Great experience!

Every time we camp at Convict lake we eat a meal here. They still do it right. Really, it is 5 star dining in the middle of nowhere. I have found no other mountain resort with dining that can come close to this place. The food is always prepared perfectly with a beautiful presentation. The duck is the best I... More

We decided to try this restauarant for my husband's 65th birthday as he wanted trout. Our reservations werre for 6p; I... More

We had dinner and brought our wine. The menu has a small selection, yet broad choices (fish, lamb, chicken, venison and a special or two). The salads can be split, dinners usually have a vegetable and starch. The wine list is ok, variety on the low to mid price range or bring your own with a $20 corkage. The deserts... More

The restaurant at Convict Lake Resort is truly excellent. The Sea Bass we had was not only cooked to perfection it came with vegetables and Mango that were prepared just right. The waiter Steve surprised us by knowing precisely and in great detail how the various dished were prepared by the chef. Deserts were equally delicious. Altogether a great dining... More

Our group stopped by this restaurant while exploring the lakes along Highway 395. This is a rather small restaurant, I don't think you can seat more than 30 patrons at a time (I would definitely recommend making reservations). We ordered the beef wellington, steak, and the special (it was a halibut dish). The dishes were all well prepared and service... More

I had high expectations for The Restaurant at Convict Lake since it was rated # 2 in Mammoth Lakes. What I experience did not match their rating. The staff was friendly. The food was over priced. The appetizers were good but the entrees were terrible. My granddaughter ordered a steak that was over cooked and had to be sent back.... More
