This place is a hidden gem. Such a warm, rustic, romantic but casual atmosphere with SUPERB food! Service was kind and attentive. Family of 4 (13 and 15 y/o) all enjoyed this fabulous dining experience! Food was amazing and wine list extensive!

My wife and I sat near their fireplace and had a wonderful dinner. We started with escargot en croute, and caesar salad with their wonderful home made dressing. My wife enjoyed her Osso Bucco and I loved the Elk special

Great food and excellent service provided by Steve. All of our meals were delicious and everyone was pleased with their choices. I had the venison which was perfection. The ambience was wonderful and we had a great table by the fireplace.

Great service. We wanted an earlier reservation as my kids were with us. The restaurant manager accomodated even though they were completely booked. The food was excellent as was the service.

I am a little late in this review, but it needs to be posted. Customer service is horrible and this restaurant sadly does not care. They don't know how to celebrate special occasions, they only know how to destroy them. I planned a nice dinner for husband's 50th birthday. I called a week in advance and spoke with Steve who...

The Restaurant at Convict Lake provides fine dining at its best. Our waiter Tim was fantastic. His suggestions from the varied menu were spot on. My wife and I each ordered the trout dinner which was beautifully prepared. This classic restaurant is a true delight.

The restaurant is really great. I especially liked dining in the dining room with the fireplace. Great ambiance. Really yummy drinks. Impeccable service. Food was good but perhaps a bit pricey.
