If you are staying at Convict lake or nearby, this is a great choice. The food is excellent, the cooking is very high end, and the setting is extremely charming.
Delicious food (hearty portions), beautiful setting, good wine selection and Bananas Foster is a must!
Great spot - the Steve’s are great hosts!
Everything was amazing. The Food the drinks, the service perfect!
Awesome as always
We can’t do a trip to the Sierra’s without a stop here! Food is amazing. This year we rented a cabin and staying here as our base camp. Great to enjoy dinner and drinks here after a day out and about.

Amazing quality of food and service was great. Overall wonderful experience and can’t wait to return!
We always visit Convict Lake restaurant when we come up to Mammoth. It’s always an excellent experience. We brought our friends for their first time and they loved it too! The food was delicious and the service is always top notch.
Our waiter, Tony, did an amazing job; Attentive, service minded, and spectacular at making banana fosters an entertaining and delicious end to our meal. This was not our first time at this hidden gem of a first rate restaurant, and it wpn’t be our last! A real treat, every time!
Spectacular as always! It’s an incredible 5 star tucked away by a be a beautiful lake that’s backdrop is the most beautiful mountains in the Sierras. We’ve been in all 4 seasons and loved it each time of year ❤️
Just opened after COVID shut down and great as ever!
Just amazing: Everything from our pre-dinner coctails to the heavenly deserts! This place is a gem! We already made our next reservation. Best place in the Mammoth mountains, for sure.
Great to visit my old work place! Never a disappointment wonderful service delicious unique food best in the area!
Keep up the great work Mike and Penny and chef
It was nice that they could accommodate a party of 7. The food was outstanding. Everyone in my party raved about how good their dinners were. I had the halibut special which is pictured. And the desserts were so good, especially the bananas foster. Tony was our sever and he was great. We will definitely go back during our next visit to Mammoth.
Amazing food, beautiful view, and great service from Tony!
Always on point service and food. Our favorite date night spot in Mammoth.
The Restaurant at Convict Lake is a “must” for all my visiting friends they expect it and request it, and we are never disappointed!
Same great place after the shutdown. Get out there!
Highly recommend. Excellent all around. One of my favorite restaurants by far.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in the world!! The ambiance is great and the food simply NEVER disappoints! Can't wait to go back again!
Food service and ambiance was outstanding! We will definitely be back!
Great location. Very good to excellent food. Superb people and service. Prices a bit high but quite reasonable for an out-of-the-way resort with really good food. We drive nearly four hours for dinner and a room.
Very nice restaurant. Excellent food, great service and friendly server. Will go again.
A little pricey, but well cooked and seasoned food. Wine and dessert were good as well!
Everything from the location, atmosphere, food, drinks, and service were perfect. We had the clay pot garlic, beef wellington, the special (beef short rib), and fuji apple and mascarpone strudel. All were delicious, especially the wellington that simply dissolves in your mouth it is so tender. The prices are extremely fair for what you are receiving. Overall, it was a very pleasant find and kinda feels like a hidden gem.
Fabulous!! Waiter was excellent and the food and wine is outstanding!
The Restaurant at Convict Lake is our favorite while up in Mammoth.
We had a lovely dinner and Terri was terrific
Great evening, with delicious food, and friendly, timely service.
Warm, rustic & inviting atmosphere, heady cocktails, delicious cuisine and very friendly & attentive service. Stunning setting amidst the mountains and adjacent to the lake, with a cozy feel, nice wine list and flavorful courses. Went with a group of 4 and all agreed it was a wonderful experience.
We have been coming here for 20 years and have always enjoyed it. They are friendly and helpful. They just want to make your experience as good as they can.
Food and presentation was excellent. Our server was attentive and timely. An awesome birthday dinner!
This was wonderful. Sat in a booth looking out a huge window with Aspen trees in full fall color. Service was great. Food outstanding. Perfect place for a special celebration or just a fine Dinner
What a hidden gem! I didn’t even know this restaurant existed until I saw them on Open Table when I was looking for a place for a great date night while we were in town for the weekend. Short drive from Mammoth. Quaint little booths with a beautiful fireplace in the center of the room. The food was amazing!! We started with the triple mushroom appetizer then my husband had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection and just melted in your mouth. I had the chicken with mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Chicken was wonderful. Very tender and moist, not dry at all. Mashed potatoes were my favorite. We also shared a scoop of their homemade Bailey’s Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!! I highly recommend this place for an amazing meal, great and attentive service. Amazing!!!
Very nice ambience, spacious, rustic interior, good service.
Amazing food!!! Great service. And loved the martinis.
Excellent service and impeccably seasoned food. They also had delish homemade cherry ice cream!
Since Covid they put up the plexiglass between booths. I think it’s great and helps mute conversations at other tables. I hope they permanently leave it up!
The Restaurant at Convict Lake is one of the best if not the best restaurant in the Eastern Sierras. The fillet and the beef Wellington were cooked perfect! Save room for desert-you cannot finish the night without a banana’s foster!!
Always a wonderful experience...our server,Sarah, was terrific!(ps..wish the chef would put the Mushroom soup and fab mustard sauce back on the menu... and possibly a gourmet burger)
