Sawyer was a terrific server & bartender. Excellent handling of COVID protocols.
Bar of America is one of our fave Go To spots when we dine out (which is much less frequent in the COVID times.). We always start with Ahi Nachos which sounds the opposite of what it is. Spicy, super fresh ahi tuna on wonton chips. It is delish and the chef always accommodates a sever avocado allergy. Tonight we had the pistachio crusted sea bass which is one of the best fish dishes served in Truckee. They have a wide variety menu to suit just about any taste. Meat, salads, pasta and burgers. But for us it’s all about the fish! Great consistent experience and top notch food! Thank you BoA!
It was a great evening with family and a good end of summer outdoor dining.
Best service ever. Food was awesome. Will be back.
Great place with a unique menu. Food is consistently good here, as are the cocktails, and the portions are quite large. The interior is nicely arranged and the outside dining is nice, as well. Our go-to place when we are in Truckee.
Great outdoor vibe. Food was ok.
Food was great, service was excellent and outdoor ambiance was fantastic. We had a great night at Bar of America.
Food was very good and service even better! Love the outside seating area on the side of the building.
It was our Anniversary and it was beautiful night in Truckee. Loved the outdoor seating.
TOM AND HIS TEAM ALWASY DO A TERRIFIC JOB, AND IN A TEDIOUS ARRANGEMENT DUE TO COVID-19 PROTOCOL ARE ALWAYS TOPS IN HOSPITALITY.
THEY EVEN COMPED ME A DESSERT FOR MY BIRHTDAY!
Great time, great service, awesome cocktails,,,outside downtown truckee, doesn’t get any better!
I had the Ahi Nachos. Amazing. My husband had the Cod Fish Special with Risotto which he said was the best he ever had, and he's picky
Great meal. Somewhat noisy, since we were sitting outside street side.
We had such a good experience here, we came back a few days later for lunch!
Fantastic food and cocktails. Great service too! Would recommend heaters for outdoor dining though.
Wonderful food and wonderful service! Can’t wait for our next visit!
The food is outstanding and our server was absolutely delightful, helpful and a very positie person! Thanks Sofie!
Excellent Service and Food! Would definitely go again and again.
Solid food. Similar to Garwoods
We set outside on beautiful day & enjoyed the experience
Always enjoy stopping here to enjoy lunch on our way to Tahoe. We are disappointed that we did not receive points for this reservation with no explanation as to why they were not granted. Arrived on time..ate there & have a receipt to prove it?
Would like to receive reply to clear this confusion
We had an early reservation for outdoor seating due to Covid restrictions. We were seated immediately upon arrival, and were surprised to find that they were also seating people indoors.
We ordered the filet mignon (me), the burger (my wife) and a pepperoni pizza (for my daughter). The steak and burger were excellent. The pizza .... not so much. The crust was doughy and the sauce lacked any flavor. Fortunately, she also had fries to fill her up.
The outdoor seating is right on the corner of a busy intersection so it was loud throughout our meal. Our server was friendly and attentive.
Overall, good meal for the grownups, not so much for the child, service was good, and atmosphere was so-so. But I’ll attribute that to Covid and having to adopt new outdoor seating in these tough times.
Outside for lunch was special. (In front).
Had a lovely beet salad here for lunch during a busy weekend. The restaurant is doing a great job at making the dining experience as good as possible despite the covid restrictions.
Our server Alli was fantastic and it was the best dinner we’ve had in Tahoe this summer!
The food and service was amazing...the noise level on the sidewalk wasn’t the best, but under the covid circumstances, we appreciate the effort to remain open! We just laughed at all the angry people that honked and don’t understand the 3-way stop!
The chicken and waffles on their weekend breakfast menu was outstanding! They are very considerate and taking precautions seriously. Great experience!
I had fish and chips and it was excellent. My husband had a philly cheesteak sandwich which came upside down, hardly any cheese. He never leaves a bite. He left half. Didn’t even take it home, Very unusual for this restaurant.
Our server Nick was awesome. Great food and great experience, Yet again. We come here every time we go to Truckee
Very good food with wonderful staff. I took my mom for her birthday and we loved our choice! She ordered her rib eye medium well and said it was juicy and my swordfish was delicious. Look forward to our next visit!
It was too hot to eat outside, but tables were well spaced inside and there was only one other party, so we felt totally safe. Server was really pleasant, and the quality of the food was remarkably good for a suburban restaurant in a strip mall in Utah (sorry, we're from San Francisco).
I was initially concerned when I saw the ingredients for the pasta carbonara - it had miso, and several other ingredients foreign to the dish (I say this as a native Japanese;
true carbonara should only have guanciale, eggs, wine, and parmigianno), but my daughter's pizza margherita was thin-crusted, light, and delicious.
The salmon and plantain dish was beautifully presented, proportioned very appropriately (not huge, but still very filling), and had a wonderfully fresh taste. I think their take on carbonara is worth going back for a try!
Excellent from start to finish. Loved the conversation with the manager about the history of the building/pictures on the walls. It was a 10! Thank you
Excellent service, alert and in tune with food allergies. Safe.
First time dining out since SIP. Restaurant is doing good job following guidelines. All staff wearing masks and super friendly. A few patrons with attitudes about masks when trying to get a table but for the most part very calm and easy. Our waiter was excellent and made our first public experience super enjoyable. Our food was amazing-I’ve missed this place and their amazing fish dishes! Can’t wait to come back.
We were greeted right away by the hostess but upon being shown our table a waitress almost ran into my daughter and when my daughter motioned for her to go first the waitress who was wearing sunglasses got upset and under her breath stated next time watch out. We didn’t let it upset our lunch as we were traveling and were hungry. Our waitress at first greeted us was extremely welcome and warm but then completely forgot about us. I get she was busy and expecting so we were trying to not be demanding and didn’t want her making frequent trips to our table but to wait 20 mins for a refill is insane.
I understand businesses are just opening but customer service is huge and if she can’t be nice choose another job
The food is excellent all around. They were able to seat our family with a last minute reservation. Ambiance is great. Classic spot in Truckee
One of the best places to eat in the Tahoe area. We had steaks, swordfish and pizza. Everyone loved the flavors, textures and temperatures of their meals.
Kudos to Garrett for another great dining experience with him as our server!
We are never disappointed with the food or service. And they make the best Irish Coffees in Truckee!
