  • Moscow mule, so yummy!
  • Shrimp and wine overlooking Truckee when it snows. Awesome!
  • These are the most knowledgeable and friendliest bartenders in town. Tip generously as they've earned this praise every time I frequent this establishment.
  • Eat Brussels sprouts
  • Try the pear salad
  • The pear salad with balsamic marinated onions is incredible. Then the NY steak with bleu cheese was even better! Definitely coming back.
  • Brussels sprouts are my favorite
  • All the food is excellent. Caesar salad is particularly good.
  • Amazing atmosphere. Home of the 1st ski slope in California! Get the Brussel Sprouts and wings to start, don't want to miss those! Entries are delicious, but the enchiladas stand out!!
  • Rib eye is delicious. Wings are amazing. We also took creme brle and the fresh berry crisp, which were super good.
  • Tasty food, gorgeous outdoor deck with live music in the summer
  • Only serve sourdough pre-meal. Seafood stew was good. Butternut squash enchilada was good too. Pork appetizer wasn't good. Cesaer Salad wasn't impressive either.
  • A more casual dining experience than Trokay/Stella/ChristyHill. Well-executed classics, some with well-done twists (the ribs are great).
  • Get a table in the fireside room.
  • There is a great view overlooking truckee from this restaurant, you have to stop by for some drinks at least once!
  • Awesome outdoor area
  • Rustic sheik, old farmhouse but with white table cloths and candles. Great acoustic music. Food's great too. One of my favs!
  • Try the French Margarita!
