The food was amazing! The tomato soup is a must! I also loved the mini corn dogs. The buns on the burgers were the best my husband and daughter had ever had! Next time I am in the area it will be my first stop!

Bar dining is noisy but good
Bar dining is noisy but good energy. Back dining room is quiet. Menu same for both.

Big upgrade in food menu since
Big upgrade in food menu since we ate there a year ago. Good wine by glass at fair price.

Can't quite put my finger on it....
Overall something lacking here since previous visits. Bread (excellent) was whisked away without asking when the mystery amuse bouche was plopped on the table (cauliflower with saffron??) . Crab toast was just ok (too much lemon juice). Short ribs and hanger steak were excellent. Sadly, no more smores for dessert.

We've been going to Moody's
We've been going to Moody's for years. Even since the change lasy year (ownership split) it is still; consistently one of the best in the Truickee/Tahoe area. A great hanger steak. You won't be disappointed.

Food was great & service was good but brisk & uninterested in any answers to questions.
It was like he couldn't wait to get away!
We were a little disappointed that our anniversary wasn't recognized even w/ a scoop of ice cream. (Yes, they were told at at the time of the reservation & hostess said happy anniversary when we arrived.)
Pork Chop & Halibut was terrific, salads superb, drinks only OK.

What a Treat!
I am always excited to go to Moodys and never disapointed! We appreciate the excellent service and the beautiful food. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!This the the restaurant that I picked to celebrate my birthday.

Best pork hop I've ever eaten
Visited many times over the years. They have not always been consistent, but when they are good they are very, very good.

awesome as usual
Moody's never let's this local down. The atmosphere and food is like no other place in Tahoe!

Great food choices
There were flavorful & filling vegan options. My husband & I both enjoyed our dinners.

…and a sophisticated menu. We shared three courses, Yellowtail Ahi poke, a Dungerness Crab and Avocado Pizza and a seasonal spring vegetable platter with pea tendrils and quinua (sp?).
The wine options were interesting and reasonably priced. This a very special place, close to the center of this charming little town and near I-80.

Moody's a Hit
First time in Truckee - Surprised by the creativity and zest for a great summer meal. Excellent service, great wine list, fresh fresh food and a staff that is clearly happy to be at Moody's. Doesn't get much better. Some pretty close tables, but worth getting to know your neighbor for!

Fun and Delicious Meal
The meal was superb. Creative, fresh menu. Great wine menu, and a full bar. Options to share, or keep to yourselves. The service was excellent. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable. There was fun, live music at 8:30 and outside dining options. I would definitely recommend Moodys!

yummy and fun
vacationing in Tahoe and picked this place for Jazz and a good menu. We were too tired to stay for the Jazz but loved the food, vibe and service. The table loved the pizzas and truffle fries and I had a delicious steak tartare and California lager. Ended with the assorted ice cream sandwiches made with choc chip, peanut butter and snickerdoodle cookies. Ran into friends the next day who had tried it for lunch and loved it as well. Situated on a corner in downtown Truckee. Go there!

The only problem that I had was the music coming from the speakers in the front patio. It was so loud that my friends and I had to practically yell in order to hear the conversation between us.

This place is worth the stop
This place is worth the stop on the way to Tahoe.
They are putting love in their food by making their own
Dough, bread, sauces and syrups.
The standouts for us were the corn dogs with coke a cola ketchup, and the
We didn't try the pizza, but it looked delicious.
This will definitely be a future stop for us on the way

Well worth the visit
It being Friday night, we had made a reservation. On arrival, we were seated immediately (unlike several groups without reservations). Our server Erin arrived quickly, and was cheerfully helpful with drink and food orders. The two specialty cocktails arrived quickly and were delicious. Both the watermelon/arugula and heirloom tomato salads used honest, fresh and tasty ingredients; we'd recommend them for anyone looking for a light and heathy starter. Our entree choices were saddle of venison and flat iron steak. Both came ideally cooked (rare side of medium rare) and were nobly complemented by a bottle of 2010 Stags Leap Winery "Artemis" (a splurge, but a worthwhile one). A memorable evening, ably assisted by Erin; we will certainly return!

Lunch in Truckee
Great spot for lunch, nice outdoor area. We had an amazing pizza with prosciutto, goat cheese, arugula with a balsamic glaze!!

Johnny was our server, it started out excellent, and it just got better. The food was excellent, service excellent. I will go back
a few times.

A great dinner in Truckee!
Moody's met our expectations entirely! The food is excellent. With a reservation we had excellent service and great wine. Even the desert, which we usually skip, was very good.
We were there in the early evening on a day when they did not have live music, and it was just what we wanted.

I've been coming to this gem for 20 years at least once every summer. I don't know of anyone up here that cooks with fresher ingredients and with as much consistency as Douglas Dale. It was a special evening for me and I had let them know that in advance and they delivered. I'll see you next summer. And thank you so much for the experience. DC

Everyone fully enjoyed their meal. Great both, service great and every dish was done perfectly. Watch out for the fries as an appetizer....oh how tasty the are and you will want more.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
They only had one dish I could order but it was very very good.
If they could add a few options for vegetarions and vegans it would be great.
Our server was very good and friendly.
Go eat there, you will like it.

Such tasty fun!
We really enjoyed our first experience at Moody's in Truckee. We were there for dinner; salads were very good and the pizza was outstanding! Our servers were courteous, friendly and totally helpful with recommendations. We happily dined in the patio while folks in the crowded bar were having a great time enjoying the scene and music. We'll go back next time we're in Truckee for sure.

Best restaurant ever
I am a foodie, and very picky. It was one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time. The service was stellar, the food was spectacular. My husband had the hanger steak with truffle fries and the tomato soup. I had the bison short ribs and the special salad. everything was cooked to perfect.
A great Dining Experience

Always the BEST!
I have been going to Moody's for over 10 years and it just gets better and better! JJ and his entire staff are fun, friendly, energetic and professional! We own a VRBO rental within walking distance of the restaurant and ALWAYS recommend Moody's to our clientele for the best experience in Truckee! A true gem in historic downtown Truckee!

My wife and I enjoyed a great meal with excellent service. The brunch special (omelet with sausage/bacon side) and shared a desert. We had a wonderful lunch here Thursday while shopping in Truckee. both meals were outstanding.

Excellent food, a good band but it did make it a little to noisy

We really enjoyed the table,
We really enjoyed the table, the ambiance and Craig was fantatic. For the price, I was a bit disappointed in the taste of the food as the vegetables didn't jump out. I am used to Farmer's Market veggies with plenty of taste. I liked the idea of half glasses of wine- very astute and loved the French Fries. My friend liked the chard and felt the same way about the vegetables.
