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

My husband had the filet and it was so tender and tasty, it was unbelievable. For desert, we shared the homemade... 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

We recently stayed in the cabins and fished at Convict Lake. While there we discovered The Restrurant @ Convict Lake. This place is well apointed w/ white table clothes & nice wine glasses. The dress is casual (out door camping casual), but the food is not. There are steaks, sea food, and many other delights. My wife had the special... More

Excellent food and service. I've had dinner here twice, and it is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. This restaurant has the total package: excellent food, atmosphere, and great service. Come here to dine, not just to eat.
