This is one of our backbone restaurants. Always good food, always good service, rock solid. Everything is good but the ribs are killer. Go here when the rest of Truckee is packed and have a great evening.

I ordered the ribeye steak. It was really good. The menu says the products are organic and maybe that made the difference. Also the mini donut dessert was quite good. And it's in a nice spot.

After our dinner we noticed that each one of us had "licked the platter clean". The pasta with salmon was excellent as a main course. The lemon souffle was delicious. This restaurant is worth a visit!

We visited The Lodge for a drink and a few shared plates prior to our dinner at home. It was absolutely delicious! The service with Alyssa as our waitress was super. It's so nice going to a restaurant so close to home.

False advertising. Claims free drink during snow days, but snows a foot after midnight, and claims the free drink happens only if snowing during sunlight. I'll never believe their marketing again.

We have been to the Tahoe Donner Lodge for diner many times and never disappointed. The chef offers fresh takes on classic dishes and many new offering seasonally. Highly recommended.
