    We love this place. Amazing food, great venue. Got there just before sunset. Might be a little lout at busy times, but we arrived at 8pm in summer and the rush was over. the trout and venison were outstanding. Mushroom appetizer amazing. This is a gem and worth the short drive from mammoth for a special night.

    This restaurant is one of the nicest, consistent, friendly, tasty in the High Sierras. The wait staff is wonderful and explains the menu choices very descriptive. Dessert save room… Don’t get me started on the mixed drinks and wine list. They have a good beer choices but I don’t drink beer.

    We were a party of four and everyone ordered something different. The scallops melted in your mouth and the steak was tender. The trout was a nice size and the mashed potatoes were delicious. We ordered escargot as a starter. They were good but I've tasted better. Overall, it was a great dinner and we would definitely return.

    Too expensive and not that good plus 20 percent tip is considered a small gratuity on a party of 9 with a bill over 500. Save your money and go to another place in Mammoth. I will never go back.

    Not on par with past excellent food. Food was fresh, beautifully presented, but the flavor just wasn’t there this time...way too delicate for my taste. I may try again sometime in the future.

    Food was very good as always. Waitress was very loud and unprofessional. We dine at Convict multiple times per year. It’s never felt like a Denny’s before. Very disappointing for a $200 meal for two.

    A great experience from the bartender, server and food. Bartender makes a fantastic classic old fashioned. Server Tony was informative, attentive and friendly. Was a pleasure having his service. The food was delicious. From the beef Wellington, scallops, beef rib special and duck- all wonderful presentation and delicious. Thank you for a fun, birthday evening.

    Excellent service from the moment we arrived. The menu selection was varied with many gluten free options. The views at Convict Lake are stunning and the whole resort is clean and well maintained. Dinners are pricey and well worth it. The restaurant itself has many windows and beautiful artwork on the walls. An old fireplace sits in the center of the room further adding to the mountain charm of the restaurant. Reservations were easy to make online, I recommend doing so due to its distance from other restaurants and the slower pace of dining, tables do not turn over quickly.

    The Restaurant at Convict Lake is our favorite in the Mammoth Lakes area. We dine there most everytime we are in that area. Always top-notch service. Excellent bar and bartenders.
