Make reservations for dinner. You do not need reservations for lunch, maybe if you want to eat on the deck. The food is excellent and there is not a bad dish in the house. The staff is excellent. Also, they make excellent drinks both alcoholic...More

Beautiful setting. Sat outside for lunch and ordered a. $10 Caesar salad. It was so small, I laughed out loud when they set it down on the table.

We go to Mammoth Lakes every other year and stay in the same cabin at Tamarack Lodge. One of our highlights is the Lakefront restaurant. As always the food and service is excellent.

The best lobster roll I've ever had! Lovely service and very pretty location. Homemade lemonade was also delicious.

The place itself is small and adorable. Seats about 25 people. Very romantic. The food is excellently prepared and the wine selection is top notch. The service is really good and I have dinner here every time I visit Mammoth Lakes.
