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.

I went there for dinner for my birthday. I really only go for the bananas foster and they did not disappoint. The food is good and all of my guest enjoyed it. The thing that I do not like with many restaurants is that they feel the need to sauce the steak. My filet had a sauce on it, and... More

I have lived in the eastern sierras since 85 and eat here about 6 times a year, if not more. The atmosphere is 2nd to none and views are spectacular. We have had xmas parties here, birthday parties, entertained guest here and it is always a hit. The food is great and the service is the best in the area.

At the annual "Taste of the Sierra" the best offerings were from the Convict Lake Restaurant. We wanted to go to the restaurant itself but we couldn't get to it before we left Bishop. Next time!

We stumbled upon the Restaurant at Convict Lake based on favorable reviews on Trip Advisor and other social media sites. They were correct. We thoroughly enjoyed the rustic setting and delicious food. Definitely worth it.

I don't know how the Chef is able to provide such excellent food when patronage varies as dramatically as it does. The night we were there he served only us and two other couples. Our very friendly waiter said that they had had sixty diners the night before. I would suggest that you keep this in mind when you order.... More

Our dining experience was fabulous. The service during our dining experience more than met our expectations. Our server was friendly, spent time to explain the menu selections and ensured our dining experience was enjoyable. The presentation was beautiful and all meals were delicious. After dinner closed out, we adjourned to the bar to watch the end of the BCS championship... More

We went there without any reservation and we were lucky. We got a table right at the fireplace . We loved the atmosphere and the whole stuff was very friendly from the beginning. The waiter presented himself and explained the menu and the specials of the day. We ordered the escargot and the Brie and it was delicious. As an... More
