The restaurant is just beside the Lake. We have lunch inside, the place is warm as well as the food and service. Quite enjoy.

This restaurant is located in the Tamarack Lodge. Make a reservation, there is limited seating. We had the spinach salad, escargot, mixed game selection, elk medallions, and the chef's selection for dessert. Everything was magnificent. And the view of the sunset over the lake was very romantic.

My wife and I just had a truly wonderful dinner here. Everything was perfect, the views, the rustic setting, the perfect baguettes, the appetizers, entrees, dessert, all exceptional. Highly recommended. Bravo!

We have been travelling this summer and spent a week in Mammoth Lakes, as we do each year for our family reunion.

We made arrangements to eat there twice during our trip - once lunch on the deck with my brother and another time for dinner with my parents.

For lunch, I started with a charcuterie platter for he table. It did not have Pate' on it - a highlight as the chef made it... so when we asked, the young waitress (who did not know the past chef) said it cost extra for the Pate'. We said OK - then she returned to say they were out. They were also out of 3 other items we tried to order. The rest of the meal was OK - but every time prior it was superb.

We kept our dinner plans later that week - as the waitress said the sous chef was trained by the French Chef, who we now know has been gone since April. They did not tell us this when we made reservations and raved about how he came out to say hello. This "cook in the raw" needs more traiing. She yelled (we could hear her from the kitchen) when we had to return the meat for being over cooked. There was only 1 fish choice and the sauce was coagulated. The staff did not even apologize.

We will not be back and we do not recommend it.

Great food in an off the beaten track set in the most beautiful setting... The French Onion Soup is a must try and we love the Boar!
