As I write this review, The Stove is currently ranked as the Number 1 restaurant in Mammoth Lakes. While The Stove is good, the food is nowhere as good as at Convict Lake or Lakefront Restaurant at Tamarack Lodge. On the other hand, The Stove is nowhere near as expensive as those places, so it certainly has high value.
We ate at The Stove a few days ago. We had a large party, and were told to be there before 6 PM if we didn't want to wait (it was a weekday, btw). So we arrived at 5:30 and were seated promptly. The staff was friendly and efficient. Our party tried several different dishes, including the pork chops, chicken pasta, fried chicken, seafood pasta, bacon avocado cheeseburger, liver and onions, and meatloaf. None of us would categorize our food as being anything other than average. It certainly wasn't up to any expectations I had of a Number One restaurant. The portions were generous, however, and I certainly could have skipped the salad, and I'm a pretty big eater.
So, don't hesitate to go, but you should go with appropriate expectations. The food is ok, and the prices give the place good value.
As for me, been there, done that. No reason to return anytime soon.
