We have stopped at this family-style diner on our way to Mammoth several times over the years. The burgers and sandwiches are hearty and tasty, and the berry pie alone is worth stopping for. Service is always friendly and fast, and the trophy fish display and quirky signs are always fun to check out. One caveat – don’t order the turkey dinner special. Nothing homemade about it – gravy from a can, instant mashed potatoes, and shredded up turkey, with a blob of salty pre-made dressing. I’ll be back, but I’m sticking to the pies and sandwiches.

Great spot in downtown Bishop for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Opens everyday from 6 am to 9 pm. They bake all their breads and pastries. Full breakfast menu spans everything from eggs, omelettes, benedicts, pancakes, waffles, french toast, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy, bacon, ham, sausage, pork chops, corned beef hash, chicken fried steak, ground chuck and steaks. They also have smaller portions. Lunch offerings range from burgers, cold and hot sandwiches, soups, salads, and chili. dinner items include steaks, chops, chicken, meat loaf and grilled beef liver, salmon, pasta, fish and chips, hot sandwiches, ribs and anything off their lunch menu. Prices are moderate - most full breakfasts range from $6 to $10, lunch from $7 to $10, and dinner from $9 to $19. Pies, cakes and ice cream for dessert. They serve beer and wine. Lots of free off street parking. Roomy clean dinning room is bright and welcoming. Clean restrooms too. Friendly knowledgeable service staff and the orders come out of the kitchen quickly.

We went for dinner and had the chicken fried steak - the smaller version. So glad we did order the smaller portion. There was a lot of food on the plate. However, I was disappointed in the gravy - it wasn't the usual white gravy. Not sure what it was but it wasn't great. The rolls brought to the table were a tad stale but when I mentioned it to the waiter he immediately brought over a couple of lovely fresh warm rolls.
We also went for breakfast = again, huge portions. The bread for the toast was made on premise, I believe. The ham steak I had was great, but big enough to feed two.

Excellent breakfast! HUGE portions. Ham and Egg scramble was good! Hashbrowns were crispy and the 8 grain bread was awesome!

If you are heading south, gas up here or between Independence and Lone Pine, place on the right.

This is the place to go! Loads of locals.

Looks nothing from outside but then inside half of Bishop seemed to be in there.

Great breakfast, tasty and good value. Definitely will stop here again one day
