“Make Reservations”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Excellent food and service. I've had dinner here twice, and it is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. This restaurant has the total package: excellent food, atmosphere, and great service. Come here to dine, not just to eat.

“Bananas Foster is the best”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I went there for dinner for my birthday. I really only go for the bananas foster and they did not disappoint. The food is good and all of my guest enjoyed it. The thing that I do not like with many restaurants is that they feel the need to sauce the steak. My filet had a sauce on it, and it was not that good of a sauce. I like my steak with just a bit of salt and cracked pepper. The service is beyond comparison. Mammoth has lots of restaurants, but most of them simply do not have all around good food and good service. They are hit or miss. This place you can order almost any item and you will have good food and the service is always good. I am sad to say that the making of the dessert got more interest than the actual dessert so I do not have a picture of the dessert. Needless to say, it was delicious. But watching it being made is a lot of fun. You will not be disappointed if you dine here. It is very cool to go in the winter after a good snow, as it is a beautiful setting. I also want to say that I really miss not being able to get Alpers trout. I hope it comes back because that is my favorite item on the menu.

“As a local, this is my personal favorite”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

I have lived in the eastern sierras since 85 and eat here about 6 times a year, if not more. The atmosphere is 2nd to none and views are spectacular. We have had xmas parties here, birthday parties, entertained guest here and it is always a hit. The food is great and the service is the best in the area.

“The best food at "Taste of the Sierra" was Convict Lake Rest.”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

At the annual "Taste of the Sierra" the best offerings were from the Convict Lake Restaurant. We wanted to go to the restaurant itself but we couldn't get to it before we left Bishop. Next time!
