The Mill

The best place on the slopes. Very strategic location at 2,600m, between the Canyon Lodge and Main Lodge skiing areas. Very reasonable lunches with plenty of BBQ and fresh salads in front of the fire. More relaxed party atmosphere outside with sunloungers and bar counter.

Skadi

The only fine dining restaurant in Mammoth Lakes, run with a warm and welcoming hand by Ian Algeröen of Norwegian descent. Scandinavian tastes, plenty of smoked and air-dried dishes on the menu, but prepared with French finesse by a highly trained chef with a tongue twisting surname. Food he calls High Alpine Cuisine.
