Food was excellent except for my daughters slider which was over charred.
We came to Bar of America for my sons birthday dinner- there wasn’t a kids menu online but happy to see they had one at the restaurant.
Overall our food was good- CA sea bass buttery and flaky and the pesto risotto with portobello mushroom was just enough, kids had Mac and cheese and the pizza was a little undercooked.
They server brought out a brownie a la mode with a candle for my son- it was fun we all sang happy birthday. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for fine dining that isn’t pretentious.
Always a great meal! Great portions, great variety! Service was outstanding! Highly recommend B of A!
The food was fantastic and the drinks were great! My husband and I will definitely be back!
We have been to Bar of America several times. It always surprises us with food quality and service. It is a lot of fun and a good value.
Very noisy but food and service great. Made reservation and was placed in dining room with several loud children. Also lighting was poor. Saw a person use his phone flashlight to see menu.
I had “the usual” pizza-very good! My wife had the cowboy chili and gave it 👍👍 and the Parmesan truffle fries were to die for! Jordan provided exceptional service!
We had to wait 15 minutes for a table for 2 despite a table for 4 being open, which remained empty the entire time we were there.
Bar of America is always our favorite spot in Truckee.
The Poppers are our favorite appetizer, and should be tried by all
Went with a large group on a Friday night. Great service and reasonable prices for a big group. The live music was fun and the scene was bumpin’.
First time eating here. Food was good and menu had decent options. Would probably eat here’s again. Good and comfortable vibe.
Good food and great service. Would definitely recommend.
The service could have received a 4 Star rating if the staff was more focused on the customer. There seemed to have a training going on for the espresso machine and the conversation regarding the proper recipe for coffee drinks could be heard by th customers. Training needs to be completed and up to speed before customers are in the restaurant.
Food was tasty and very ample.
Very loud place! But having said that, the food was amazing, the people watching was on point, and it didn't break the bank. Will absolutely be back!
Great place. Met friends and their young kids for lunch. Our server, Lisa, was,awesome. Definitely recommend for lunch or dinner.
We are locals and have dined at Bar of America for many years. It’s a fun place to dine although it can be noisy at times. We usually order the swordfish or sea bass and have not been disappointed. The food is good and the servers are friendly.
Bar of the Americas is located in Truckee. Offers great food, amazing cocktails and overal a great place to eat. The summer is fun because they offer outside seating! Great place for lunch and dinner! Enjoy a must stop if you are in Truckee
Frustrating experience with the manager. Asked to sit at a table next to the one they suggested. While standing there waiting the manager said he could not make any changes cause “everything would go wrong”. Not a great start to the meal as it was literally one four top to another and within 5 minutes another group of four sat there and we both left at the same time with the same server.
Server was great. Pizza was sub par but martini was great. Too bad as the manager’s lack of any flexibility will make me think twice before returning.
Every time we come up to the Tahoe area we eat here, it’s a great solid staple. Food is always good but I. Suggest making reservations during the peak seasons!
Service is great - food delicious - good kids menu!
Not good! Would not return.
Christmas Day, so very crowded, which was expected.
Service was good and server very cordial.
Some of the entrees were fine, but some overcooked and may have been sitting on a warming table too long.
It's probably better to stick with the basics- pizza, hamburger, etc. than to go for fine dining.
Loved this, wonderful Christmas experience. Delicious food and attentive staff. Will come back again when in Truckee.
Food was very good. A bit noisy.
Great people work here. Good food and ambiance. Went back for dinner with another friend !!
The seabass risotto is always our favorite! We recommend getting a reservation. This place can get very busy during the weekends.
Can always count on good food. Convenient. Right in downtown Truckee.
Love their seabass rissotto. We always come here everytime we drive up to Truckee.
A bit pricey, for a relatively basic menu, but they execute well, our waitress was great, and our booth provided a very comfortable view of the TVs over hanging the bar. Good, fun and reliable.
We travelled through Truckee on Thanksgiving day. Bar of America had a dinner reservation open. We came 2 hours ahead of time and asked if they could seat us. They did! The food was good quality food: A Cob salad with chicken skewers and a Cesar salad with Salmon were fresh, with some creative touches. Good size, interesting twists: Cesar had dried berries (blueberries?) added. Everything is on a spicier side than expected: Kids cheese pizzas were spicier than expected. Blackened chicken skewers, salmon all had a spicy touch. Good for adults, a bit harder for the kids. Overall, good spot.
Good upscale pub food and atmosphere, service was excellent.
My second visit to Bar of America was good and I will return in the future, but would be great if they could improve their service a bit. There were plenty of empty tables the evening we were there so it wasn't that it was crowded with winter sport enthusiasts or locals. We ordered their truffle fries as an appetizer but the fries never arrived so we ended up cancelling them when our meals came. Server seemed a bit distracted the whole evening. Salmon with chutney was tasty but was described as being served with asparagus but actually came with broccolini. Not a huge deal, but my son and I both love asparagus and that was one of the reasons we ordered it. Would have been nice if they would have at least told us that as we ordered. My husband had the rib eye (done medium) and said it was good. I like the location of this place and the casual Truckee vibe but was a bit disappointed this time around. Worth giving it a try as I've been their once before and enjoyed it much more. This might have just been an off night.
I ordered the fish and chips. Service was quick and professional. Food was excellent.
This visit was not the best and it was not totally the fault of the restaurant. It was Truckee’s Halloween parade so the town was full of children and we did not know this event was taking place when we made reservations. It would have been more pleasant if we had been seated in a different part of the restaurant rather than in the area where families with young children were allowed to run around, being loud and obnoxious. That makes for a very unpleasant evening for the diners and for the staff.
Great server. Excellent fish and beef entrees.
We go to Bar Of America each time we are in Truckee, about 10-12 Times a year. We enjoy the fun bar/restaurant atmosphere, watching the various games on the screens, the friendly staff, and the drinks and good food.
Our last visit was during a wine event in truckee so the town was full. We came to truckee for a hike and specifically have a fun dinner at BOA. I was relieved I had made reservations with a specific request to sit in the bar side of the restaurant once I saw the crowds.
We arrived early and the hostess said she could not sit us in the bar area. We told her we had a half hour before our reservation so we can wait because we did not want to sit in the quiet side. The hostess did not give me much faith that she cared. We had a drink at the bar and watched tables turn over. I checked back in with the hostess and she said she could not sit us in the bar area and sat us in the very quiet (boring) restaurant side. The screen showing the game cannot be seen and my buddy and I had dinner with a few older and pleasant couples. I watched the hostess sit more tables of two in the bar area.
I thought I made it clear in the request and provided enough flexibility to the hostess to at least try to accommodate us. But I realized she really didn’t care. Thanks for the boring meal. Maybe we will try something else next time.
I have brought almost every person who has come to Truckee to see me to this place. It is a bit expensive but occasionally you can splurge and enjoy food, the train passing and Cottonwood in the background.
The kids love this place too
Good food and fantastic wait staff. Very responsive to your needs.
Great time overall! Reservations were on time, pepper poppers are a must with a hand crafted beer to top it all off. The ambiance and toe tapping music lifted up our spirits or maybe it was the combination of great music and great crafted beer. We were visiting with friends and we will include Bar of America on every vist.
