We did a little research into restaurants knowing we were going to be in mammoth lakes for a couple of nights. Moguls was rated very highly so we decided to try it. I cannot say a bad thing about Moguls. Seeing how crowded it was we were not the only ones who think that. On a weekend you definitely need... More

Unique in that your server also grills your steak. All staff friendly and provided great service. Steak was done perfectly and my wife loved the prime rib. Making a reservation really helps. BTW, the bartender makes a wonderful Manhattan.

It has been over 20 years since I last visited The Mogul and the steaks are just as good. The wait staff is also the grillmaster and our steaks were cooked to perfection. Suggest reservations.

This place is old school (hello, salad bar) but with great surf and turf offerings. I'd recommend for a family dinner or even a date night.

We have read good reviews so we went there, a total of 9 adults and children. The food quality is not good, the steaks are Disappointing and the service was too long. Not recommended!

We have stayed in Mammoth for over twenty years and have to say that Mogul is the best in town for quality, price and service. We were served by Bryan last night and you could really tell he really took his responsibility seriously with great attention, friendliness and the right amount of chitchat. Over the years we have seen restaurants... More

Tried and true, the Mogul comes through (again). The Mogul is as much a rock in Mammoth as the Crystal Crag. Nothing chi-chi or froufrou here; cocktails are solid pours; good wines, good steaks, good fresh fish, good deserts. Decades ago we cooked our own entrees on the big grill... nowadays your server grills your entree for you so you... More

The Mogul is part of Mammoth history, someone told us once this should be your first reservation to do after you book your trip to Mammoth. We enjoyed great steak and prime ribs numerous times along the years, with the cool salad bar, in this beautiful pinewood mountain cabin interior. Great atmosphere and personalized attention to detail from the owner.... More

The Mogul has been an excellent steakhouse for many years in Mammoth Lakes. Lots of chicken and seafood choices also. Reservations necessary in the peak summer and winter seasons. Service is always outstanding.
