One of Truckee's Best for Dining
Have been going to The Lodge for 10 years now. The food is always very good. In the bar area, casual foods like burgers and fries, sliders and macaroni and cheese are delish! Sports are on all the TVs and the ambiance is lively and friendly. The main dining room is more upscale, yet still casual. The food is gourmet and the service attentive - short ribs are really tender and flavorful, seafood dishes have all been well prepared and tasty; the sides are top notch, too. It is located on the Tahoe Donner Golf Course, so the view is beautiful looking up the 1st and 10th fairways. In the summer, deck seating is the best! I see they are expanding it now - it has always been popular!

Make Sure to Stop Off at The Lodge
We had 13 people in our group, including 3 children. Mike, the General Manager, was wonderful at working with us to make a very enjoyable seating arrangement for our group. We felt very special. He even called us back to make sure we were set. It was a very nice anniversary and birthday celebration. The Malbec wine was a great way to start off, and the food was very rich and tasty. I had never had a fish taco before, and probably won't have one as good as that one anytime soon. I would highly recommend The Lodge!! Thank you!

The Lodge is a Gem
This is an awesome restaurant in the heart of Tahoe Donner housing development. It is convenient for residents and visitors, but also a destination for anyone visiting the Tahoe area, as the setting is lovely, relaxing and the food and service superb. Highly recommended.

One of our favorite restaurants as locals. Food does vary a bit but overall it's very good.

The lodge has a fairly small menu that changes seasonally. The food is outstanding. Nice views of the golf course, all with great service. We will go back.

Good with a suggestion
Overall, our experience was very good and consistent with our other visits to the Lodge. One of our guests wanted a dessert wine. Although the wine he wished to have (Sauterne) was on your menu, it was not in your stock. Perhaps you might want to update your menu on a regular basis.

neighbourhood gem for sure
We live very close to the restaurant so it's definitely very convenient but also one of our favorites in Truckee. Great food and a friendly staff...a must for us for any occasion. Every Tuesday is "no corkage Tuesdays" which is an added bonus and business is brisk on Tuesdays for sure. If you're in the Truckee area any time of the year, be sure and visit this restaurant, it's beautiful in winter too with the snow outside and you come in to this great restaurant with a fireplace and lovely decor. For casual dining the bar is a fun place with a less expensive menu and still great food....can't say enough about how much we love The Lodge.

Very enjoyable experience---Halibut
Very enjoyable experience---Halibut special was great! ---Fish tacos and meatloaf were very good, and reasonably priced---The view of the golf course and the mountains would be amaziing, BUT, they have erected a permanent seasonal white tent which blocks the scene from the very nice main dining room !!! --- A real shame.

Wonderful Dining Experience
Once again, the Lodge didn't disappoint! Brought some friends along, and they loved their dinner as well. In spite of it being the busiest weekend of the year, the service was efficient, the food was divine, and the wine was great! No one makes better halibut than the Lodge; not even Manzanita at the Ritz Carlton. So moist, a creative assembly with heirloom tomatoes, arugula, portabello mushrooms and a wonderful balsamic and oil dressing. Yummy!! The calamari was also terrific, as were the short ribs and chicken.

Lodge at Dusk
Requested a window seat which we received but there was a large white tent in front of the window blocking the view. Food and service were excellent.

Have eaten at the Lodge on several occasions when visiting the Truckee/Tahoe Donner area.
Food always good and service is good in the dining area, not so much in the bar area.
Will go back again!!

We frequent The Lodge since we are home owners and it is convenient. The food is always good and the service is always very good. It would be nice to have some new items on the menu or change a little with the seasons.

Tahoe Donner The Lodge
We are very please to have rented a beautiful perfect home up the hill from the Lodge.
It was so convenient to be at dinner in 5 minutes with to traffic or lines and plenty of parking.
The Lodge has multiple options for seating and atmosphere for all occasions.
It is on the beautiful Tahoe Donner Golf Course with lawn and forrest in all directions.
The waiters are well versed and prompt service was all around us.
Overall is was a very pleasant experience.......

Service was excellent once the server realized she had four people at her table. Although we were given menus as we were shown to our table and water was provided minutes later, no server came by our table for over 20 minutes. We finally had to ask another server to send a server to our table. Once the server "found us", everything was excellent.

A neighborhood gem
One does not have to live in the Tahoe Donner community in order to enjoy The Lodge. It has a great atmosphere, freindly staff and very good food. Sitting outside in the summer and fall is delightful. The value of the food is also good. Tuesday is "no corkage" which makes the meal even that much less expensive if you want to bring your own wine.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We try to eat here each time we're in Donner. Perfect after a busy day or the drive up. Never had a bad meal, the service is great.

Worth the trip up the hill
The Lodge is off the beaten path. It's located at the Tahoe Donner Golf Course about 4 miles from downtown Truckee, CA. It's not a place you stumble upon; it is definitely a destination venue but well worth the short trip up the hill. There is plenty of outdoor dining in the warm months with views of the golf course. I believe the Lodge has the best chef in the North Tahoe area. I've been to this restaurant many times and found every dish I've tried to be very delicious and well presented. This time I tried the Pork Tenderloin on Mashed Potatoes and it was awesome. The staff is friendly and attentive. The full menu is also available in the bar/pub.

Turkey Day at The Lodge
We have eaten here numerous times and the food has always been great. The Thanksgiving dinner was no exception. Great food, huge portions (had to take most of it home), amazing desserts! The staff was very active and attentive. The Lodge will stay on my list for go to dining! And its a great place to take your weekend guests.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
As usual, this is a great place hidden away in Tahoe Donner. Food is always good, there's enough variety for everyone to find something they like, prices are reasonable and the service is good. Portions are good size too. I always take visiting friends and family here.
