“Okay if you are really hungry and not picky”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Mammoth Lakes, Ca has so many restaurants to choose from and after asking a local for a few suggestions we found out, the wait to get a table on Labor Day weekend for not what we had in mind, since we were hungry after hiking to Ruby Lakes.
So, we found Smokeyard which could seat us within 10 minutes and took the opportunity to try it. Not great, but probably the best thing on the menu is pizza. I tried the chicken/pineapple/onion pizza and the sauce was minimal but okay. I probably would not go back again since there are so many other options. When you are hungry, you get desperate.

“Very poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We decided to go here after seeing good reviews in the magazine in our hotel. Very disappointing family of four with four different meals and not one good one out of the four! We should have complained but being on holiday you don't want to make a fuss. Do not go here.

On the other hand Giovanni's Pizza was fantastic and highly recommended!

“Great BBQ Lots for the Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The beef ribs here are delicious and generous. The sides are also very good. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. There is patio, bar and inside seating. Get there early or be prepared to wait.

“Lots of food - better to not order cocktails”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The meals were about 25% over priced, but the portions were HUGE. Two can eat each entry, which gets the price more reasonable. Bar is exceedingly expensive ($9 for a shot of Kahlua).
