We had lunch twice outside under the trees and one dinner while we stayed in a cabin at the resort. All meals were excellent. Enjoyed the Beef Wellington and the filet mignon.

Just got back from Mammoth and celebrated our last evening with a special meal at this restaurant. We both ordered the trout and it was excellent. Came with mashed potatoes and veggies (which were the smallest served portion that I have ever had!)--however the flavors were terrific. A bit pricey for what we had, but all in all, it was a delicious meal in a beautiful setting.

Don't be turned off by the silly neon "pizza" sign outside -- this is an upscale eatery.

We were most impressed by the wine list, on one visit we had a Gruner Veltliner, on another the Tolosa Pinot Noir from the Edna Valley, both choices turned out very well.

The service and the ambiance couldn't have been better, especially after we were moved on our request from a spot right under the air-conditioner,

This restaurant is fun to take guests to because they would not expects such quality food and service at a place so remote. I had my favorite, fresh trout which is always terrific. I also had a warm goat cheese and arugala salad which was also great. I didn't leave room for the apple studel for desert but my guests loved it. Our server, Kirk was attentive, gave good advise on menu items and was all around a very good server.

The menu is just right....not too many choices. I have been there twice now and was pleased with everything about it. Beautiful view, small atmosphere, great wines, awesome service, lovely dinners. Our waiter even reminded us to be careful when leaving as the dear and cattle cross the road going out. He was right! We saw dear as we left and I was glad that we were on our guard and watching carefully ahead for them.
