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.

After enjoying a hike we wanted to get some coffee in the bar of the lodge. The restaurant part was busy so we had to wait a little before a servant showed up. We ordered coffee and relaxed a bit in a nicely looking lodge. Having decided to move on I asked how much I had to pay for the... More

The restaurant is in an ideal location for viewing the beautiful Twin Lakes, although we did not see the lake from inside the restaurant. The Lakes are a short walk (across the road). While the interior of the restaurant is small, rustic and cozy, the food is sophisticated and trendy. We enjoyed the homemade bread, "Simple Salad" (that's what it... More

We greatly enjoyed dinner and the next day lunch celebrating my husbands birthday. Can't say anything negative, it was all so good. Just be sure to reserve in advance if you want to eat there.
