We were staying at the Mammoth Mountain Inn where we had stayed in Nov/13. In Nov. I took my son & his friends to the Mountainside Grill, where we got burgers that were super-deluxe, but over-priced. It was late, & hardly anyone was there, but the service was good. The chef, a lady, even came out and checked on us to make sure we were satisfied with the quality. She was very nice, & we were satisfied. When we came back on 2/23/14 Feb, the situation was similar. We were staying at the Inn, it was late, & hardly anyone was there. The waiter/host was inattentive, didn't greet us or even look up from his computer, & made us wait, even though hardly anyone was there. When we were seated, I tried to order a draft beer. He told me the taps were all down, & had been all week because the system was being remodeled. When I looked over at the bar, it was busy. Who does a remodel on the bar at the flagship restaurant of the major hotel of a world famous ski resort, on a weekend, in peak season? I had to order a bottle of Mammoth Brewing beer, which I was informed may be out. He appeared with what he said was the last one. It was warm, as was the pint glass it came with, and it cost $6. I ordered crab cakes for an appetizer, which were good, but there were only 2 of them, & they were tiny. There were 4 of us. They were also $18. I expected more than 2 tiny cakes for $18. I also ordered the caesar salad, which came drowned and soggy with yucky dressing, a million too many capers, & 5 lbs. of over-salty parmesan cheese. I could barely eat any of it. It was $14. The cup of onion soup was drowned in cheese, and cost $8. We were supposed to get %10 off for being hotel guests, but the lazy guy didn't give it to us. They even charged us an extra "resort tax", on top of the regular, unusual sales tax. To top it all off, when we left, I asked if I could get a bone for our dog, who was also staying at the Inn. He made up a bunch of excuses why we couldn't get one. The bill for the whole meal for the 4 of us was $130! I wish we had gone to McDonald's. At least I could have eaten the salad. I'm never eating there again.
