We enjoyed are food, but it was a bit pricy. $$$$$ Even charged us $25 corkage fee. I enjoyed the Elk.

The Lakefront restaurant is very cozy and intimate and has better food than any other restaurant over 8500 ft. in elevation. However, the limited menu and astronomic prices dampened our enjoyment a bit. I would suggest lunch over dinner, given the price structure.

The Lakefront Restaurant is a treat. Not to be missed. We arrived with 4 adults and 2 kids for a special dinner, and everything exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere was warm and cozy, and a jazz band played in the bar. Drinks were well made,...More

Lakefront is one of the "fanciest" restaurants in Mammoth. But, it is located within the beautiful and rustic Tamarack Lodge. Although I have seen the occasional suit and tie and fancy dress, you will be quite comfortable... More
