The food tasted like a nice home cooked meal. Their dressing is made there and so are a few other items. The grilled chicken I ordered was tasty and not processed tasting like some places. No frills.

We stopped in here for lunch. The staff was friendly. We split a lunch which they gladly did and plated it separately for us. The burger and fries were good but nothing outstanding.

A very pleasant restaurant with pleasant staff and good service. I have been on several trips though the town and have been lucky to be taken care of by Kelby. What a great guy and good server!

Ate dinner at this cafe. Burgers were ok. It was busy so it must be a popular place for locals as well as tourists. Highly recommend the onion rings.

The food was wholesome and filling and not at an unreasonable price. The menu was a bit limited but generally acceptable. Some of the staff however need to get a personality facelift.

Diner with a western feel. Good selection of burgers. I tried the elk, not bad. Fried corn on the cob interesting. Friendly service.

Was there on a Tuesday night (March 2017) and the rib special is excellent! Was there the following Saturday morning and had the Mt Whitney Omelet, again excellent!

There is not much to choose from as far as restaurants in Lone Pine this time of year. Mt. Whitney Restaurant serves basis American fare but its not that great and overpriced. We got spaghetti and the sauce was watery. Server was pleasant. Open until 8PM.
