The food and service are very good but I suggest going when they open. Once the restaurant is half full, you can hardly carry on a conversation with your dinner partners because of the noise level.

Seating a bit too close quarters. Any movement was bumper cars with opposing table chair knocks. Food was terrific!

Recommend Morrison’s very highly. Great selection and very good special dishes, reasonable wine prices, fantastic wait staff, nice ambiance and quiet enough to enjoy conversation. Visited as a couple on a recommendation, enjoyed it so much we brought friends along just two days later. We had a seared Ahi tuna main and a seafood with spinach angel hair pasta dish one night, and a sea bass with hot mustard and another sauce on the other night—all with wonderful flavors and well seasoned.

Love the atmosphere here! The food was delicious and our server was excellent. I had the crispy skin salmon which was excellent while others in our party had the homemade pasta (excellent) and steaks. All the meals were tasty. We were going to pass on dessert but decided on the Convict homemade strawberry ice cream. SOOO good - we wanted the recipe but...We will definitely return on our next trip to Mammoth!

It was a delicious and a very enjoyable experience, we will eat there again! One suggestion, we asked to split the Caesar salad, would have been nice to get 2 salad plates vs sharing from one plate.

We had a reservation for a Friday night dinner. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated immediately (although the table was not that great, next to the hostess stand). Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. The food was very tasty (Caesar salad, lamb shank, branzino). The portions were very good. We really enjoyed our dinner.

We had a great time at Morrison's. Started with drinks. The Mule was terrific and so was the Old Fashioned. The beet salad was excellent. Could have been a whole meal but I followed it with butternut squash ravioli which rounded things off perfectly. My husband had the ribs and really liked them and someone else in our party ordered the hamburger which she loved. Would definitely go again.

Loved the low key contrast of Morrison's to the noisy and tacky, cheaper restaurants within walking distance of our lodging spot, the Quality Inn. From the clever and artful postings of the evening's specials, to the welcoming comments and recommendations of the owner, to the quality of the service and food, this was a hit for us. As "engaged" seniors, we felt we could enjoy an upbeat ambiance but didn't have to be overwhelmed by noise and boisterous craziness. There were some terrific and creative menu offerings, and the individual attentiveness from the owner was really appreciated. The prices were right, and the full bar creations were terrific. Thanks, Morrison's!

This was our first visit to Morrison's and we enjoyed it very much. The experience definitely met our expectations. The food and wine are good value and reasonably priced. The menu had some unusual dishes, which made for a welcomed change from the usual, such as smoked chicken wings and thighs (the thighs seem to have disappeared from the menu), bronzino, and barramundi. The food was very well-prepared and delicious! We liked it so much we went back a second night and recommended it to a friend, who also enjoyed it very much. If you get a window seat, there is a bit of a view of the mountains. The ambience is very pleasant, nice for a date night or casual dinner, and the service was quite attentive. We highly recommend it and will definitely return on our next visit to Mammoth.

We really enjoy this restaurant. The food is delicious and the wait staff is great EXCEPT for the manager. He has such a sour personality and thinks way to highly of himself. He is NOT a good people-person to have out mingling with customers who are going to spend at least $100 on a meal. Get rid of him and keep everyone else!

Fantastic service and delicious food in a smaller dining room that was quiet enough to have a thoughtful conversation. Great mountain-cabin ambience. Wish we had known that we could park at the adjacent hotel, but the sign was blocked so we walked a few blocks. Definitely a place we will revisit often.

We both had the whole fish and it was spectacular! Our server was knowledgeable and very available but unobtrusive otherwise. Looking forward to coming back to Mammoth just to eat here.

My partner booked dinner here for the two of us last minute and my am I glad she did! Our host Chris was attentive, well-informed and very professional. All of the food we ate was incredible and if we weren’t on the road passing through Mammoth Lakes we would definitely come by and eat here again. 100% would recommend. Everything about the service, food and ambience was perfect.

Food was excellent. Our server, Chris, knew all about the dishes being served and we also had some fun talk about our pets. Overall, what a nice evening out it was. I have to also say that the $7 Cab was very good. The art is exceptional also.

Fantastic place. Definitely my top place in Mammoth and I’ve been to them all many times. I’ve been coming to Mammoth for 30 years. We’re always trying to find a decent place to eat. Our friends turned us on to Morrison’s a few years ago. Since then I always try to come when I’m up here. Everything comes out really great! I love the burrata cheese and arugula salad with pistachios. So good! The main courses are all excellent and cooked perfectly. They come out on a piping hot plate. (Never understand why other restaurants don’t always do this). The bread is warm and delicious and drinks are great. Never tried the deserts but I’m sure their good too. Ambience great too! If this place was in OC I’d go all the time.

Not sure if we just caught a bad night, but we waited almost 10 minutes for our drinks (even though they were there on the bar). We weren’t offered pepper with our steak, we requested some but nobody showed. The food was very good, but the service was not good.

Great spot! For all of our trips to Mammoth, we’ve never found this gem. Great food- especially loved our halibut and salmon dishes. The Mules were great too! Service and ambiance were relaxed but professional. We’ll definitely be back!

I like well-seasoned food, but some of the dishes were too seasoned for my taste. For example grilled BBQ shrimp had so much seasoning that it was difficult to taste the shrimp.
