A word from Graham's at Squaw Valley
In business for 21 years, Graham's is located in the historical Poulsen family home. Built in 1946, Sandy and Wayne raised 8 children here. Their home now is our restaurant and also the Christy Lodge which has 6 hotel rooms. Just minutes away from all of the activities in Squaw Valley, Graham's has been a favorite Apres Ski and Dinner House to locals and tourists alike. Summertime means bocce ball with Hor's D'oeuvres and cocktails before dinner on our heated patio with spectacular views of the mountain peaks. Winter time is the time to enjoy the warmth and cozy ambiance of a true mountain lodge, open wood burning fireplaces, vaulted ceilings create a unique Tahoe experience. Graham's also has an active bar scene with full menu dining at the bar. Award winning wine list with 450 selections. Menu changes weekly with a good selection of fresh seafood, great steaks and house specials such as seafood chowder, cheese fondue, duck cassoulet, osso bocco and tarte tatin for dessert.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I have had an excellent experiencing organising a business dinner for a group of 12+ at Graham's. It was a very important occasion, so I was a little nervy and paranoid that everything go well. Graham put my nerves to rest : even my special requests didn't phase him, for example taking certain foods off the printed menus and bringing around pre-poured sparkling wine en masse for a toast. Flawless service. The food itself was extremely good. I had a beautiful raw tuna dish for appetiser, and the shrimp linguini for entree. Both excellently done. I couldn't fit in dessert, but it certainly looked very good. My colleague had the special (scallops) and the steak, both of which looked delicious also. Thank you Graham!"

  • "I booked Grahams for my partner's birthday. When we were seated, the owner (who was our server) insisted we order our meal immediately, before we ordered a drink -- because the "kitchen is slammed". The bus boy told us they only had wine, later found a full bar. I am gluten free and asked if there were breadcrumbs on a dish - he told us not that there weren't many and I should order it. Our starters came within a few minutes, before we had water or wine, and the entrees about 15 minutes later. Our meal lasted less than an hour. My steak was well done, versus the medium rare I ordered. Our tab was $208 before tip. By comparison, we ate at Plump Jack the next night and had a wonderful meal, including complimentary birthday wine."

  • "Set in one of the valley's oldest homes complete with beautiful stone fireplace, Graham's offers a charming ambiance and fabulous food. The wine list is long with many affordable options. Corkage fee is a titch high at $30 but with many bottle options starting at $40, it is easy to get a nice wine to compliment the food. We started with baked oysters which were just amazing. We then followed the recommendation of our server and had the scallop "small plate". Yum!!!! Soak up the sauce with the yeasty bread. We asked to split the Osso Buco (lamb, not veal which is the way I like it) and it was no problem at all. Delicious. We also shared the tarte tartin which was a great finish. Recommend it all!!!"

  • "Food was good, however, the filet of soul was bland. Ahi Poke was very good as was the asparagus appetizer. Seafood chowder and oysters were wry good. It was a pleasant dining experience and would recommend to others."

  • "The ambiance is warm and inviting. The osso bucco was the best of the 4 entrees our family sampled. After dinner drink menu and wine selection was very nice. Walkable from Village at Squaw Valley."

  • "We have been going to Graham at Squaw Valley for several years. The food is always outstanding, service is great and its a very friendly atmosphere. On this night, we had Lamb Osso Buco. And once other guests saw the huge portion, they were ordering it too. Wonderful flavors and I was impressed that it was "fall off the bone" tender. Our waitress, Liz, took very good care of us. We will be back!"

  • "Tahoe area restaurants are all pretty mediocre, and this is no exception. There are almost no option for nondrinkers other than water. Almost anywhere else one can at least get a nonalcoholic "mocktail" or beer, but not here. The food was fine, just not great. Hoping for better as it was or 25th wedding anniversary. The service was abysmal. The server had a table of 8 as well as our table for 2, and was nowhere to be found most of the time."

  • "We went to Graham's based on the reviews. However, there were some concerns. Out of six people who were in our party, three had the Shrimp and pasta and were quite disappointed saying this meal was tasteless. I had the Filet Minon and was quite pleased with the taste, size and quality of the meat. The ambience was somewhat attractive but could be improved both inside and out. So, our experience did not match up to the concierge's oppinion from our hotel who felt that Graham's was a wonderful restaurant."
