Do not know about the accommodations at this Lodge, however the restaurant was terrible. Overpriced and not wonderful. Only two out of the four at our table got sick on the "sea food". Apparently the chef is new and trying to prove himself by fancy...More

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.

We had lunch at this lovely spot. Sitting outdoor with a view of the lake was the best part. We had a salmon meal, it was the smallest piece of salmon we've ever had with a few french fries nothing else for $20 for each...More

We didn't expect such an excellent meal at this cozy old restaurant at the Tamarack Lodge. We were presented with the most remarkable corn chowder, served with salted cod and croutons--this may not sound so remarkable, but the flavors were splendid. We both had the...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
