Happy hour is from 4 - 6:30 p.m. Bartenders and crowd are very friendly. Prices are reasonable and my wife's Crown Royal perfect manhattan was excellent. The black Butte Porter draft beer was delicious as was the meatball slider we had. Nice selection of draft beers. They offer a nice selection of discounted appetizers during happy hour. Would go back next time in Mammoth.

Thanks for writing your awsome 4 STAR "Happy Happy Hour Review"!! We advertise "classic cocktails * classic Bartenders" and we are so pleased you enjoyed both, as well as our extensive list of Bar food specials and craft beers. Love Avila Beach....used to race P-Cats there years ago...such a beautiful spot. Thanks again, Cindy A. owner

The service was great, we made it for happy hour but still ended up paying more than we wanted, the food was "ok" nothing to really jump up and down for, but the staff was friendly and it seemed like a good local place to grab a beer and appetizers.

Thank jb2186

Much appreciation for your 4 STAR review! Do you happen to remember the name of your server? ("great service). The Staff loves to hear good feedback. Everyone gives it their all here, we're very proud of all of them. I see you're from Reno...my husband and I love visiting all the new places popping up in Midtown and by the River...lots of fun R&D. Thanks for taking the time to write. Hope to see you your next visit to Mammoth. Cindy A. owner

We didn't want to wait for a table so we ordered in the bar. The spicy shrimp was particularly good. Higher quality and more sophisticated than pub food. Friendly server. We would return but try to hit Happy Hour. A little pricey.

A Great Big THANKS for your 4 STAR Review: "Appetizers were Perfect!" My husband obsesses over our appetizers, actually the entire menu....sometimes he'll wake up at 4am and he's come up with a new twist for the spicy shrimp or the ahi poke etc. From your very favorable comments looks like he and our kitchen and serving Staff are on the right track. We love hearing your input and glad you had such a good experience. Your "a little pricey" comment is the toughest part our job.... balancing 'out of control' food costs with the "high quality" you mentioned and then calculating our menu prices as fairly as possible...is extremely challenging for sure. We do offer lots of great food deals during Happy Hour along with our locally famous $4 Certified Angus Happy Cheeseburger with all the trimming plus fries. On this Summer's regular menu we have 43 items, with 35 priced from $3.75 - $18.95; and 8 items priced from $21.95 - $29.50. Our goal has always been to offer a quality, varied menu with many choices along with a large price range in order to appeal to every pocketbook and taste. Thanks so much for coming in and we look forward to your next visit. Again, much appreciation from all of us at Slocums for your super 4 Star review! Cindy A. owner since 1983

Nice Menu, very courteous wait staff. Nice atmosphere but a bit pricey for a blue cheese burger. We would have done better to share a burger and an appetizer.

Hi Bob F, Many, many thanks for your 4 STAR review..."nice menu, nice atmosphere, courteous staff". Re: "blue cheese burger a bit pricey"...our Smokehuas Blue Cheese Burger and Fries $15.75 listed under our "Deluxe Burgers". In order to make this popular burger, we use only top-notch ingredients: organic farmer-certified hand-crafted Applewood-smoked Blue Cheese from the Wisconsin Amish country, a 1/2 lb of Certified Angus Beef, crispy onions & mushrooms and a sesame seed brioche bun. And we even serve it with french fries. You picked our highest priced burger and we're glad you liked it. Sometime come in for Happy Hour, (known as Mammoth's favorite HH for over 31 years) daily from 4-6:30 for our locally Famous Happy Cheeseburger: 1/4 lb Certified Angus Beef with Real American Cheddar, all the trimmings and served with french fries for only $4.00....you can bet we sell LOTS of those. Hope you visit us your next time here. And thanks again for taking the time to write a review, and ESPECIALLY thanks for giving us 4 STARS!! Cindy A. owner

Came in and were immediately seated. The host suggested the smoked prime rib and despite the fact we had prime rib the night before (at Mogul's) we decided to do that, in addition to getting the escargot and pretzels.

The escargot was delightful, and different -- I haven't much seen escargot served with melted cheese and while the cheese obscured the escargot flavor a little, it was still quite ... snaily. The pretzels were OMG delicious.

But the prime rib ... I have no idea why I haven't seen smoked prime rib anywhere before. It's amazing. Every single thing accompanying it was also wonderful -- from the crunchy steamed zucchini, to the carrots, to the mashed potatoes.

We had the lava cake to take home; the morning after, it was delightful.

I'd come again, and again, and again ...

Thank Roy R

What a super 5 STAR review!! Thank you so much. Our Sat. nite hickory smoked prime rib has quite a large and loyal following, and now we can add Mr. Roy R of Pacifica to the list.
After you've had it smoked there's no turning back. Thanks again from all of us and hope to see you on your next visit to Mammoth...again, and again and again! Cindy A. (original owner since 1983)
