    Great setting and ambiance. The soup is always good. Entrees are great. The bread is served fresh and hot with real whipped butter. Entrees are excellent and usually served with vegetables. The service is attentive and friendly. Definitely not cheap, but menu items include filet mignon, beef Wellington, rainbow trout. A classy place!

    Drinks in the bar are top notch. Great lodge feel. Dining room is quant and has views of the mountains. Great selection of appetizers, we had the mushrooms they were served with hot sourdough bread, so yummy. For dinner I had the trout and husband had the duck, both were perfectly cooked and served with mashed potatoes, squash and asparagus. The wine list is extensive and we found a great Walt Pino. We dine at Convict Lake Restaurant whenever we are in town, this was the best experience we ever had.

    Whenever we're in Mammoth we always have dinner here. We were served promptly and quickly. It was noisy because we sat between two big groups. Our trout was a bit overcooked but it was still good. Our field greens salad was delicious. Looking forward to our next visit.

    Well after looking at many menus around Lake Tahoe, we decided on the 2 1/2 drive to CLR! That says a lot and CLR did not disappoint. We had escargot, Scottish salmon, duck, beef Wellington and crème brûlée. A memorable birthday dinner for sure! I missed the bear out front after dinner but my husband and son were overjoyed with him.

    The restaurant was overcrowded and sadly understaffed. We waited 20 minutes to be seated with a reservation at a table that was ready for us the whole time. Then we waited another 20 minutes to be served anything. On a Sunday late evening we were expecting better service. The food was excellent as usual. We’ve had many dinners at this restaurant in the past.

    Best white table cloth experience in the Mammoth Lakes area without being stuffy, or enjoy their full menu in the more casual bar. Excellent service and food. Fresh fish and excellent steaks. Extensive wine list and full bar. Always consistently good through out the many years we have dined here.

    I was totally unprepared for food of this caliber at this quiet, unassuming location. Every single thing that hit the table was delicious. I opted for the trout - something I don’t usually choose - figuring why not? And I’m so glad I did. It was absolutely wonderful. The other two members of the party both chose steak and were beyond pleased with their food. The apple and mascarpone strudel was amazing. This is a quiet, casual setting in an off the beaten path location but don’t be put off by any of those things. Make a reservation and go!!

    The restaurant was very busy, but there was sufficient wait staff available for our waiter to be attentive. The special- filet mignon with large scallops - was cooked to perfection. The Belgian Chocolate Grenache was very rich and we will enjoy the other half of the dessert tonight. The atmosphere was nice, but I think the set up for numerous large groups makes it less than romantic. If you only have eyes for each other it wont matter. The pricing was reasonable for a resort area. Definitely will go back!

    My wife had the filet and stated it was the best she had ever had so tender she hardly had to use a knife to cut it. I had the beef wellington not what I expected somewhat disappointed. The service was impeccable!

    Best dinner in the Eastern Sierra. You pay for what you get, “excellent service and food.” I’ve been here off and on for over 20 years and the chefs not only cook the food to perfection but the presentation is above anything I’ve seen. Congratulations

    The restaurant convict Lake has long been our favorite in the entire area. It’s situated in such a beautiful setting, and the restaurant itself is classic and beautiful. The food is always wonderful. Our server last night was especially nice, a young man with long blonde hair who had a quiet enthusiasm and was both present but not at all obtrusive. He anticipated our needs and did a great job.
