    Can't say enough good things about this place, food is NEXT LEVEL, the services matches and it's tucked away in one of the most beautiful scenic landscapes. Highly suggest getting there about 30min before your reservations to go check out the lake. *especially beautiful just before sunset.

    Great find. Rustic cabin like feel… comfortable warm and cozy. Food overall was a 6.5 to a seven. Service was wonderful. We are foodies. Salads too big unless you have a serious appetite, suggest sharing. Ordered the beef Wellington was very good steak cooked perfectly, wish they didn’t put it on top of the mashed potatoes. Again portion too big we could have shared it. Same with the bananas foster too big share it. FYI there was no phone reception on part of the road. Keep driving and you will see it. I will go there again.

    Never disappoints!! Food was fabulous! Service was superb.. Drinks were beautiful.. it’s such a treat to visit this restaurant.. I had the fillet, it was delicious my son had the beef Wellington, which was out of this world, and my daughter-in-law had the scallops which they ate every single last bite of their meal, so it was fantastic one last delicious item my daughter-in-law ordered the chef special soup, delicious. The drive from our place in mammoth takes 10 minutes to convict lake after dinner we went out by the lake and watched the stars for a few minutes.. couldn’t have been a better experience.. ..p.s you have to get the banana foster if you have desert.. it’s made table side and done beautifully..

    We frequent Convict Lake restaurant several times a year. It has never failed us. We have been patrons for over 25 years! That says a lot! Had our 25th anniversary and hubby’s 65th B day celebrations at the restaurant! Food and service are consistently excellent! Wonderful selection of wines! Perfect atmosphere is a bonus with eating among the gorgeous aspens, and watching the deer graze across the way.

    First time in Mammoth Lake, came on Thanksgiving and the food was absolutely delicious. They did a thanksgiving menu with three choices for each meal. My husband and I did the Argentinian crab and shrimp cake (best we’ve ever had), butternut squash soup, prime rib for him and pistachio crusted salmon with cilantro pesto (on my need to recreate list it was so good), and finished with the apple strudel. We were so stuffed by the end, as you should be on thanksgiving, and every bit we were so content. We thanked our server for being there on thanksgiving and tipped generously as well. 10/10 would recommend.
