Once you see the beautiful Eastern Sierra mountains, you won’t want to let them out of your sight.
Both Mammoth Lakes locals and visitors from across the country can’t get enough of the scenic wonder surrounding the town, so it makes sense that there are plenty of great places where you can eat and enjoy views of the Eastern Sierra Mountains. Whether you’re trying to enjoy a view of the mountains from indoors during winter or you’ve spent all day outside during the summer and aren’t ready to go inside just yet, our list of Mammoth Lakes restaurants with a view will help you choose where to eat!
Mammoth Rock Brasserie
Thanks to the bowling alley in the basement, lounge on the main floor, and brasserie on the top floor, Mammoth Rock N’ Bowl has something for everything. That’s not all Mammoth Rock N’ Bowl has to offer though, because Mammoth Rock Brasserie offers spectacular views of the Sherwin Mountains and the National Park Reserve. Since Mammoth Rock N’ Bowl offers so much to do, it’s a great option for activities even when the view from the brasserie is obscured and the weather keeps you from enjoying the outdoors. Do yourself a favor and check out the view from the top!
The Eatery by Bleu at Mammoth Brewing Company
Views of the Eastern Sierras are hard to beat, but when you add in beer brewed by Mammoth Lakes locals who add the flavor of the mountains into each beer you’ll appreciate them like never before. The Eatery at Mammoth Mountain Brewing serves comfort food by seasons, just like their beers which are famous throughout the area for good reason. Enjoy the breweries’ outdoor seating which offers picturesque views of the Eastern Sierras.
The Lakefront Restaurant
As the name suggests, The Lakefront Restaurant is located on the shores of Twin Lakes which makes its view a unique dining experience. The Lakefront Restaurant is located inside historic Tamarack Lodge and is a great option for guests of the lodge, but everyone can enjoy their fine dining, cozy building, and the excellent views of Twin Lakes and the towering mountains beyond. Like the Eatery at Mammoth Brewing Company, The Lakefront Restaurant offers a seasonal menu that incorporates the tastes of the Eastern Sierras with fine dining. If you’re looking for Mammoth restaurants with a view or an excellent place to take a date, then The Lakefront Restaurant should be at the top of your list!
The Restaurant at Convict Lake
If you make the 10-minute drive from Mammoth Lakes to Convict Lake, then you will be rewarded with some of the finest food and views in the entire region. Like The Lakefront Restaurant, The Restaurant at Convict Lake is part of a historic resort which makes it extra convenient for guests. Still, the thing that draws people from all over the region is the fine food and scenic views of Convict Lake and the surrounding mountains. The Restaurant at Convict Lake offers a four-course dinner service, but they also have a lounge with full dinners, drinks, and TV’s if you want a more casual atmosphere.
If you ate any higher up than Eleven53 Café, it would be a part of your in-flight meal service. Eleven53 Café is located on Mammoth Mountain’s summit at 11,053 feet and is accessible by the Panorama Gondola. Although Eleven53 Café is open for lunch only and serves food in a food court style dining room, the view from the top is just as spectacular as you’d imagine. The gondola ride, quick and simple food choices, and view of the entire region makes lunch at Eleven53 Café a great family activity.
