Fodor's Review

The lake is one of the most spectacular spots in the Eastern Sierra, and the food here lives up to the view. Beef Wellington, rack of lamb, and pan-seared local trout, all beautifully prepared, are among the chef's specialties. The woodsy room has a vaulted knotty-pine ceiling and a copper-chimney fireplace. Natural light abounds in the daytime, but if it's summer, opt for a table outdoors under the white-barked aspens. Service is exceptional, as is the wine selection, which includes reasonably priced European and California bottlings. The restaurant offers shuttle service from Mammoth Lakes for groups of four or more (reservations required).
