    The service was outstanding. Both from our server and the hostesses. They were professional and courteous. However the food was disappointing. I had the fried chicken sandwich and my friend had the bbq chicken, both were incredibly bland. *But the fries were delicious. Wouldn’t recommend the chicken though.

    The host was very accommodating finding us a table by an open window since all the outdoor tables were taken. Our waitress could not have been more helpful with advice on the menu and apologizing when our drinks from the bar were a bit delayed. We enjoyed our steaks and the hot fudge sundae. We always enjoy dinner at Bar of America when we are in Truckee.

    We had the rib eye steak and it was not worth it. There was so much fat, it was tough and no taste. We also go out jalapeño popper after the dinner was served. There weren’t that many people in there. Very disappointed.

    The food here is consistently good, and our server, Kaitlin, was attentive and always came to the table with a smile, despite the lunchtime crowds. We were outside and every table had an umbrella providing a delightful dining experience notwithstanding the temperature. We have been eating here for years and will be back a few more times this summer.
