“A bit expensive”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

No problems with food and service but food and berverages a little pricy. Might expect to pay this if in the middle of a large city but here and out of season (assuming summer is)! Ok on first night as we arrived late but no repeat business from us for reasons already stated.

Thank you for the review and feedback regarding prices of entree's. We believe that good food costs money and as a result we only use the highest quality meats and vegetables available. Our steaks are all Certified Angus Beef, our veal is always 100% Provimi, and our Ahi is always number 1 grade sushi quality. Obviously Mammoth is also not an inexpensive place to do business and things just do cost more, however comparing us to other restaurants in Mammoth we are probably on the lower side regarding price. In addition we offer a daily early bird specials with $3.00 off each entree as well as a daily happy hour with significant savings on both appetizers and drinks. Thanks, Austria Hof

“Out of the norm and tasty!”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

I came by here last month with a group of 10, excited to try some fine dining options outside of the crowded village. At first glance, it doesn't have the appeal of a modern upscale restaurant, as the decor is dated and the lighting is on the dim side, but it felt reminiscent of some of my meals abroad. I ordered the pork shank with parmesean polenta. The pork was Devine- falling off the bone resting on a savory sauce and polenta. The three combined made an incredible bite. The manager introduced himself, and said he used to manage the restaurant at Convict Lake. The place seems like a hidden gem as far as finding a less crowded, off the beaten path place to dine.

“Dated and Tired - interior and cuisine”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Made a rezzie there during our trip last week. Much to our amazement it was almost empty possibly due to Monday night. The interior is dated and tattered: carpet torn and dirty.

Menue selection average for a restaurant of this genre but all meats smothered in heavy sauces so you can't really taste the meat. The spatzle l appeared to be pre cooked as in starchy. Good wine. Would NOT return. Problem is Mammoth has very few excellent dining options due to mostly a LA crowd that doens't have the sophistication of the Bay Area and other cosmopolitan areas. Food for the masses and not for the classes, sorry to say!

“great place to hang out......”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

We hung out on the outside deck while waiting for the kids to mountain bike. You have to order the fries that have several types of cheese....super good. Not good for you.....but SUPER good. ALso the pretzel on the appetizer menu was so much fun. It is at least a foot in diameter and comes with several sauces. So great to share......pricey....but you are in mammoth! (Our waiter even brought out a water bowl for our dog!)
