I love this restaurant...the atmosphere is great, nice roaring fire. The food is well prepared and the waiters are very knowledgeable. It doesn't take very long to drive over from Mammoth Lakes..it is worth the drive!

We were on a camping trip staying at Convict Lake Campground which is just across the creek from the Convict Lake Resort. The dining room is a rustic delight, with soft golden lighting, white tablecloths, wood paneled walls. and outstanding service. Fresh Trout is their specialty, though they have a varied menu including duck, beef,, chicken and vegetarian dishes. The... More

One of our favorite restaurants year after year...this restaurant continues to find superb chefs to prepare a proven menu of favorite entrees. Last reviewed 5 years ago, The Restaurant at Convict Lake has only got better. The picture is of the scallop entree which tasted as good as it looks. Oh, and the homemade ice cream is downright decadent! One... More

Friends recommended this restaurant as excellent fine dining. I found the setting, service, drinks, and menu offerings to be excellent. I had an American Mule cocktail and salad. I didn't order the rack of lamb since I disapprove of how baby animals are inhumanely confined until slaughtered. Instead, I ordered the duck with a berry sauce which came with potatoes... More

We were going for a week long hike in Sierra and this was out "last meal" before the hike, so to speak. The restaurant serves solid if not exquisite meals. However it is an expensive place. The cheapest entree will set you back by about $26. Do not get me wrong it is a nice restaurant but the quality-to-price ratio... More

We arrived at mammoth lakes from Yosemite and decided to have dinner at this restaurant. We arrived at 5pm, the staff informed us that dinner was served at 5:30pm so we made reservations and waited outside., It appeared that they are a resort location, host weddings and also have a gift shop. There was three of us and when we... More

Every time I want to impress friends or business associates, I come to Convict Lake restaurant. Out of all the restaurants in Mammoth, I think it is the best! The service is always consistent, the food is delicious and if you have the opportunity to meet Mike you will know why this restaurant is so successful. I highly recommend it!
