Fodor's Expert Review Restaurant at Convict Lake
The lake is one of the most spectacular spots in the Eastern Sierra, and the food here lives up to the view. 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. The restaurant offers shuttle service from Mammoth Lakes for groups of four or more (reservations required). If you can't make it to Convict Lake, try Morrison's, a wood-fired barbecue restaurant in Mammoth Lakes owned and operated by the Restaurant at Convict Lake.
