Best scallops I have ever had. Everything was great! I had the pork belly and scallops. They only have 10 tables so it is smart to make a reservation ahead of time. It is a great reviewed restaurant so that is why I was curious to see what the fuss was all about. It lived up to all the positive... More

Mammoth Lakes offers a lovely alpine winter experience just a few hours drive north for those of us residing in Southern California. The Lakefront Restaurant, located within historic Tamarack Lodge and Resort two miles out of town, overlooking Lake Mary, and offering lovely cross-country skiing, provides a fine dining experience equal to any in Orange County, in a winter cabin...

My recent visit was my second time here and it was just as fabulous! The lodge is super cozy on a cold winter night. What's a little surprising is that the dining room in the back isn't as cozy as the front room. The wine list is interesting so we went with a Santa Barbara Pinot Noir. We started with... More

Could go on and on about how much my husband and I like this restaurant. We both enjoy the contrast between the rustic setting and the creative menu and excellent service. The short story is that we have eaten dinner here 6 times in as many years and have never been disappointed. We had dinner here September 28 and as... More

Got in late and decided to treat ourselves to dinner at this restaurant at Tamarack Lodge. I am very glad that we did. The servers and hostess were extremely attentive and helpful - very friendly. The food was great - Halibut was very fresh and tasty, as was the venison. Our beet salad was delicious. The portions were generous and... More

If you want to treat yourself to an intimate, delicious dining experience, make this a must go in the Mammoth area. We were so glad we selected this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The food was terrific, with a great wine selection, and prompt, kind service. Will definitely visit again next time I'm in the area.

We had rented a cabin at the lodge and looked forward to a great meal at their cozy restaurant. I was disappointed that trout nor any other local fish was on the menu, but that turned out to the least of our concerns. Bread and appetizers came out quickly and they were all quite good. And then came a long... More

This restaurant is located next to Twin Lakes adjacent to Tamarack Lodge, about a 10 minute drive in the summer uphill above the town of Mammoth. It serves only dinner. And it is quite a dinner. We ordered the nightly special of Prime NY steak and the vegetarian dish. Both were excellent. They also serve wine by the glass or... More

Every time I come to Mammoth, I go here. The food and service is always amazing. Book well in advanced because it's hard to get a table on weekends especially during the ski season.
