Excellent food as always. Outside dining under the Aspens very pleasant in these COVID 19 times. Service was pleasant.
Food was better than great! Sitting outside was wonderful with no wind. Great service and ambiance.
Every time I’m in the area I have to eat here. The food is always delicious, service is impeccable and the outside dining was lovely. I was so happy you were open amid all this craziness. Well done as always!
It was truly an amazing experience, we will definitely be going again.
My son and I shared a great evening at The Convict Lake Restaurant. Even though we all had to sit outside due to COVID, the staff worked extra hard to make our evening enjoyable. The outdoor ambiance was perfect and the food was amazing! It really is a first class evening in the Sierras!
My wife and I have ate at the restaurant many times and always have had a great experience. We had reservations on the fifth Aug. and ordered the rack of lamb. It was terrible, tasted like it was pre cooked and frozen. I couldn’t finish it. It was super rare and grisly actually under cooked. However the veg. Was lovely and grate service.
Tables moved outdoors on lawn in this Covid era....socially distanced tables and wait staff with masks. Food is still EXCEPTIONAL! We will be back!
Convict Lake Restaurant never disappoints! Each dish, Diver scallops, Scottish Salmon, beef Wellington, and venison was prepared skillfully and absolutely delectable... outdoor seating properly spaced for Covid-19... staff charming and attentive... absolutely delightful evening!
Lovely evening! Lovely dinner! Service was great! I highly recommend if you’re in the area.
A memorable family dinner with terrific service an elegant food
Food was really, really good. The chef definitely understands how to infuse lots of flavor into each plate. Our servers were both professional and kind. The restaurant has done a remarkable job spacing tables outside and making guests feel welcome.
Food was delish, but we had a long wait even with a reservation. A very lovely ambiance was created outside on a beautiful tree studded lawn to accommodate the Covid 19 orders. The wait staff were dealing with the transition as best they could and were friendly and accommodating. The food was slow to come out and our table got lost in the shuffle for a while, but it was made up for by wine and dessert being comped. All in all, a good experience - just glad we had plenty of time. Hopefully they can go back inside before it gets cold.
Wonderful menu. Best restaurant in the Mammoth area. Duck confit amazing, short rib delicious, trout so fresh and the desserts were the highlight.
Although we were required to dine outside, the weather was lovely and the setting was serene. Food was OUTSTANDING!!
The food was excellent. Because of the pandemic, the food was served at tables outside. The ambiance was beautiful with trees, mountains, and boho lighting.
Delicious shrimp/crab cake appetizer, splendid desserts (apple struedel, homemade ice cream), good entrees (scallops, venison). Service a tadnslow but good.
We had a wonderful outside under the lights. As always our meals were cooked to perfection. Steve did a great job serving us. Our favorite restaurant.
Amazing food. Good service in a very pleasant setting. I was hoping for a lake view but you can’t have everything.
We loved our dining experience at Convict Lake. We were greeted and seated in the very lovely and romantic, Covid dining outdoors setting. The ambiance was so amazing, being outside under the lights. Our server, Tony, was absolutely fantastic. Super friendly and attentive. We each ordered a salad and I would highly recommend the pear salad with endives. Saved some for the next day. Hubby had the romaine and it was a nice caesar salad. We shared the trout and Tony suggested the split plate as they give you extra sides for the two of you. The trout arrived and it was heaven. The sauce was so delicious, lemony, buttery and complimented the filleted trout. The sides were also tasty. Mashed potatoes and squash. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert but lucky for us, we were going to order the bananas foster which they flambe at your table. But due to the new set up they aren't serving it. So now we have a reason to return. Tony told us the Beef Wellington is one of the best items. Definitely going to visit this restaurant again. Yum, yum, yum!!!
I never liked the menu before so haven’t been there in several years. The menu this last visit was much improved for me. The outdoor ambience was lovely. Our table next to a fence wasn’t the best but understand the social distancing. Our waiter, Tony, added to our dining enjoyment .
My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner with beautiful surroundings.
Outstanding as usual! We always try and make it to dinner at Convict when we are in town, and we are always thrilled with everything!
Pleasant experience! Nice ambiance, even under the challenging circumstances.
The chef at Convict Lake Restaurant is a culinary artist. Our filet mignon was served in picture perfect beauty and appetizing appeal. Every vegetable was cooked to perfection. We each desired different methods of cooking for the beef and were pleased with the chef's excellence. Dining outdoors was made comfortable and eye appealing with white lines and overhead quality decor lights. The feeling was romantic. Thank you to the staff of the restaurant for doing everything well in the midst of draconian times in CA. You made my birthday celebration very special!
We love Convict Lake Restaurant first time to come to The Restaurant was in the 70's
and we keep coming back to this 5 Star Gem

Always outstanding food and service!
Super yummy and definitely the best food we’ve had up here in years
Always a joy. The daily home made ice cream is the best.
A classy atmosphere even when forced outdoors due to COVID. Staff and food excellent. Not your typical choice for Mammoth mountain, a bit pricey but the choices and results are great.
Excellent food, great service, especially considering they just opened back up and are working hard to rework their servicing system due to COVID. It was our first time there and would definitely to back!
It’s hard to believe food this good can be found in such an out of the way location.
Wonderful place to dine. Really friendly service and fresh food. The one thing to work on is enforcing the mask wearing by the clientele. Multiple people got up for smokes and restroom breaks without masks, some coughed into open spaces while walking or standing up.
The best on the East side and most anywhere you live. Beautiful setting; pretty good wine line list; excellently prepared food. Try the Venison.👍🏻
Thanks to all at Convict Lake for a very excellent evening. We’ll be back some day!
Such an amazing experience. Highly recommended for special occasions - a hidden gem in the Sierras.
Juicy, tender and very very tasty! One of the best steak dinners I have had. (Better than Mortons) Worth the money!
Pleasant setting and reliably good food. Also their Covid19 procedures are good and seem to be followed by both staff and diners.
The food here is superb. I had the Duck. Moist and flavorful (loved the Grand Marnier flavor). My wife enjoyed the Trout and the Halibut my daughter had was excellent. Great service and very attentive to social distancing and mask wearing.
The restaurant is first class from the ambiance, service and the food. I had the scallops which were delicate and huge, in a light tasty sauce. My husband had the rack of lamb which was excellent. Covid precautions were followed and we felt safe.
Always a favorite and must go here on every Mammoth trip we make. Never disappoints and worth every penny!
