  • "We've been celebrating our anniversary here for the last few years as treat to ourselves and it continues to impress us with it's outstanding presentation of the whole dining experience."

  • "Have been here several times. The food is always excellent. Great for steaks and fish. Reasonably priced for the quality. The big issue I have is the quality of service. Very inconsistent and rushed. There are two male servers who are not great. Try and avoid them! The steps of service mean they try to clean your plates away before everyone has finished - making you feel you have to rush your meal. Not good. They'll also try to sell you the house specialty chocolate pudding. Not worth it. They'll also sell you the Landrys Card. Take this if you want to go back to one of the group restaurants. I wish they would create a more personalised service style. It's more an upmarket Cheesecake Factory the way the current service flows. "

  • "We have eaten at this venue numerous times; this occasion topped the list of excellent experiences. The server was outstanding - personable, attentive and, very importantly, spot-on perfect with his recommendations. Can't go wrong with the well-provisioned salad bar. The clam chowder was superb. Likewise the scallops, coconut fried shrimp and key lime pie. Absolutely nothing negative to say regarding this dining experience."

  • "Chart House in Mammoth is more than just a restaurant; it is always a memorable experience. The food and service are always excellent. They make you feel special no matter the number of patrons in the restaurant. They take reservations and are always on time. Our frequent visits are to Mammoth are not complete without having dinner at Chart House one night. We especially enjoyed Kyle as our server during our last visit. "

  • "WE ORDERED THE LAVE CAKE AND IT CAME WITH NO LAVA, THEN OVERHEARD A DIFFERENT WAITER EXPLAINING THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE OVENS, AFTER ANOTHER PATRON COMPLAINED, WE FEEL OUR WAITER SHOULD HAVE BEEN UP FRONT WITH US REGARDING THIS MATTER AND IT WAS RATHER DISTURBED THAT THE OTHER PARTY WAS OFFERED A COMP DESERT WHERE WE PAID FOR OUR LESS THAN PAR SIGNATURE DISH. THIS WAS NOT WHAT WE HAD COME TO EXPECT FROM THE CHART HOUSE!"

  • "Great dependable restaurant in Mammoth! We were disappointed by many other restaurants in the area, but this was pleasantly outstanding. Unexpectedly two of the best filet mingons we've had...and we went to Mastro's in Beverly Hills the other day! And a divine chocolate lava cake. YUM!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "While there are several outstanding dining choices in the Mammoth Lakes area, Chart House remains in the mix due to the consistency of service and food."

  • "Mammoth has few good restaurants and most of them are busy. Luckily we were able to get a reservation at the Chart House which is always reliable and this one still has a salad bar which is always a plus. Food was good, Service was so-so. Olympics were on, couldn't be better."

  • "Reservation 7:30 and waited 20min and was there on time. People who came after us who complained were seated before us."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The service was lacking. It took us 25 min to get our drink order from the bar when we got there. After we were seated another 20 min. to get our drinks from the table. They were obvioulsly very busy and had not planed accordingly. The manager finally came over after we complained. We had been there 2 hours and had not received our entres. We had them cancel our entres. Good thing, hearing the table next to us everything was cold. Will not be going back to Chart House in Mammoth again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We spent Valentine's Evening at the Chart House. It was super busy, but we never felt rushed or neglected. Our waiter Kyle was very attentive, knew the menu very well and had some great recommendations. My friends and I visit the Chart House every time we go skiing and the experience has always been great. We go there for great food, good wine and fun time."

  • "Went to Chart House for a nice dinner and it was great as always. We had the seared Ahi and prime rib. Both were delicious. The service was good and the experience will bring us back!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "It was Freezing in the restaurant !!! We told the waitress and manger and he acted like he came to turn on the heat but clearly did not. Our food was cold and not very good. Even the coffee came out cold, we ordered Mudd Pie at the end and they did not have any whip cream for it. We come to Mammoth at least 3 times a year and always go to the chart house but that will not occur again. We will never end there again"

    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "First time here in winter. Made reservation ahead. We had a party of 7 & got squeezed between 2 other tables. It felt very cramped. But the worst part, absolutely no service for about 20 minutes. No water. No bread. Nothing. With 3 hungry kids who skied all day. It was a busy night but two separate parties that arrive after us got served almost immediately. I complained to a staff and about 20 minutes after we sat down our server finally showed up. Food was very inconsistent. Appetizers were good but my fish & wife's pasta was very overlooked. Been here several times in summer on fishing trips and always had good experience. Overall very disappointing."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Actually I was disappointed. We had 20 people and spent quite a bit of money. The service was off. it was disruptive and disjointed. Maybe because there was 2 servers for our 2 tables. We ordered 2 bottles of expensive champagne to toast an engagement. Half of us sat waiting while our champagne warmed while the rest waited for champagne glasses. I refilled champagne glasses. Our dinner order was taken immediately after hot appetizers came out. T. Makes no sense. Let people enjoy the food they just got first. The salad bar had no lettuce when our big party went up to the bar. No caesar salad person serving. Many items at salad bar were empty. Unbelievable really."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Booked the reservation a month in advance, and was looking forward to a great time and experience. Haven't been to a Chart House in some time. Seated quickly and was giving a great table. My complaint was with the waiter. Seemed hurried and rushed. He didn't take the time to engage and overall I was disappointed. I just remember the Chart House as having exceptional service, and this wasn't the case for us."

  • "The Charthouse in Mammoth is always good. Even though it is a chain, it is very good. The service was great. A delicious meal!"

  • "The food was delicious, the ambiance was warm & cozy and the service was great."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Overall this was one of my better recent Chart House experiences; it was superior to the South Lake Tahoe version in terms of both Prime Rib and fish special food preparation and quality even though the menus are identical. Service, however, was really only okay. We had to wait more than 25 minutes for appetizers while tables around us received theirs (same items) in less than 10. Water and bread were quick and attentive, however, so that helped balance it out. Would probably give them a second chance but our overall recommendation is relatively weak."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We were seated at a table by the front door next to the hostess station. It took forever to get a dinner and our food came out luke warm. We barely good get a second drink. It was our Christmas Eve dinner. Not pleasant!"

  • "I've been to many Chart House restaurants in my time. They typically can't rival the best high end fish houses, but my experience has been that you can get a nice meal and usually a nice experience. This is NOT true of Chart House Mammoth Lakes. I should have known that seafood wasn't the right choice in a ski town. Our dinner was not up to par on quality, preparation, or presentation. Service was abysmal. It literally took 20 minutes for my wife to get her water glass refilled. If you're looking for a nice dinner out after hitting the slopes, I'd research other options in the area."
    Dined on 9/6/2013
  • "We had not been to the Chart House in Mammoth Lakes for years and it was just like we remembered it, a classic setting for steak and seafood with welcoming servise. The suprise was great Happy Hour prices on appetizers and drinks until 7."
    Dined on 8/23/2013
  • "We have eaten at this Chart House many times and were seated immediately. This time, people ahead of us were told there was a 40 minute wait, so I made an Open Table Reservation on my phone for 5 minutes later. When it was our turn, I mentioned this to the hostess, and she politely said, "We will seat you at 7:15," then explained that the place had been empty the night before so they were short-staffed for the walk-in crowd that night. As promised, we were seated on time and served in a timely manner. Chart House food is consistent and good, so we got exactly what we expected, including an order of chocolate lava cake. Of course, we'll be back. Kudos to our hostess, and praises for the power of Open Table."

  • "Had dinner at the Chart House in late June. Restaurant was full for early dining and then cleared out fairly quickly. Mammoth Mountain residents and tourists must be early risers! Had the Distinctive Dining menu for 29.99. Chopped salad, Beef Short Ribs & Tilapia and Mud Pie for dessert. An excellent bargain. The bar area looked very inviting with a nice fire pit -- probably would be more popular during ski season. Service was nice and we enjoyed our time there."
