“Excellent!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This July was the 3rd time we ate at the Restaurant at Convict Lake. And, like the previous 2 times, the food was excellent! Whenever we are in the area we make it a point to eat there.

“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We went here with our family to celebrate my husband's birthday. Maybe it is because we are from LA with many fabulous restaurants, but we found the food at this restaurant to be extremely poor, very boring choices and way over-priced. Most of the entrees were in the high $30's and $40's and for that I expect something special. The ambience was not at all romantic, just rustic and ugly.

“Everything was great”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

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.

“Rustic Elegance”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

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.

“Our favourite spot in Mammoth Lakes”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

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,
