The Restaurant at Convict Lake
Although the name of the restaurant may lead you to believe that it is on the lake, it is not. It is fairly close to a lake, but unfortunately, you have to walk over a hill to actually even see it! The restaurant itself has a very cozy feel with aspen trees surrounding it! This is probably one of the nicest restaurants in Mammoth.
Favorite Dish: If it is in season, the trout is exceptionally good. The grilled chicken breast is fairly good as well. They have an excellent wine list and has been rated by Wine Spectator for some of their wines!
Convict Lake Restaurant. It's about 10 miles out of town (south) with excellent food and 5 star surroundings.
Out of town, away from the crush of people
Favorite Dish: Ahi Tuna grilled in a Pistachio crust. And, while we're at it, the double pork chop with port wine demigloss.
