Spectacular setting. Attentive service. Highly varied menu which accommodates various dietary preferences. Good selection of beers and wines. Food was very good but perhaps not really special. Still, a highly enjoyable dinner. Only one downside. When I called in advance, the hostess said we could bring our dog on the deck, but was told otherwise when we arrived which meant we had to make other last minute arrangements. All staff should be aware of the ground rules and ideally this should be made clear on the web site (if its there, I couldn't find it).

My husband and I decided at the last minute to eat at The Brooks. Such a good decision. The food was great, the weather was good and the view was incredible! Our waitress (I think her name was Yvonne) was so sweet, friendly and provided great service. We will be back on our next visit to Lake Tahoe!

Ever since the Edgewood Lodge was built, the food (at both places) has been gravitating to average. My hamburger was cooked as requested, but it was smaller than Brooks' previous years' servings. Also, a smaller serving of fries. Brooks' still can command a stunning view, and great outdoor dining, weather permitting. But the food isn't really that good anymore. Merely OK.

I had a salad with salmon added. Usually, the salmon is in a small fillet and very good. This time, it was three "fish sticks" of tasteless, dry, salmon that was awful. My wife's hamburger was good. But there are no added seasonings so one must add everything onto the burger that one wants. When we came into the restaurant, it was basically empty at 1:00 on a Sunday. ? The server was great, but the ambience was very strange. Tomb like.

Brooks is consistently good. But this time I was disappointed that they had no sparkling mineral water available. Fairly basic I would have thought

Food was good and service was great. We arrived at 7 and they were sold out of the surf and turf, but didn't notify us until well after placing our order. Other than that, we were pleased.

I hit Brooks once a month or so...usually a burger and beer stop. Yesterday, now actually the last 3 times I’ve been there, burger meat is sub-par; spitting out those hard spheres of fat you’ll find in low-end ground beef. For the price and intended experience, Brooks shouldn’t cut corners on ingredients.

Brooks Bar offered a very nice Thanksgiving option of the entire bar menu in addition to the classic turkey dinner. Turkey dinner included a big pile of white meat, green beans, stuffing, gravy. No Taters or roll. We asked for some kind of roll and our kind waitress snuck some from the fancy schmancy buffet dinner next door at the Edgewood Restaurant
An additional 8 bucks got you a festive dessert.

We were lucky enough to get reservations for Thanksgiving last minute. So happy we did! The food was exceptional. We had Lindsay as our server. She was great! She was even kind enough to take a couple of photos for us. The view of the water as well as the golf course, is quite scenic. It was absolutely fabulous. It was raining during our visit. so we appreciated the valet parking as well. Highly recommend this place for an afternoon bite or quiet and laid back dinner!

First time to this place and it was fabulous! I have been coming to Lake Tahoe for years and although I knew of Edgewood golf course I had no idea the clubhouse dining was this darn good. This is definitely one of my new "go to" places when I am in the area. The chicken sandwich and sweet potato tots were without a doubt the best I ever had. I never thought I would get excited about a chicken sandwich! My wife had the Mahi Mahi tacos and they were equally fantastic. Great ambiance and a nice lake view with very good and friendly service.

I had the harvest salad and my date had the house salad. Both salad dressing had so much vinegar that we about choked. Very disappointed in the quality of the harvest salad that was skimpy with anything other than iceberg lettuce. I have always enjoyed Brook's and this was the first time I can say I had a bad meal .

This was my third experience at Edgewood. All I can say is that the service and food is consistently poor. The only redeeming quality here is the location and view (which is world class).

I went to Brooks for Sunday brunch. It was a very stale and common brunch buffet. Service was incredibly poor, as drinks were served after we had asked for the check to depart the restaurant after we had finished our meal.

This visit to Brooks was for a group of 6 that was celebrating a birthday. We had REALLY hoped to sit out on the patio...but it was just too cool and breezy... Darn! We ate inside, which was fine, but kinda noisy. Great food as always, and LOVED the Brussel Sprout appetizer!

This was my first timing dining at the restaurant as I was staying as a guest at the Edgewater Resort.

In short, my service was horrible! It took the wait staff over an hour to bring my mom & I our food. This was even after having to get the manager involved. The waitress was really nice but unfortunately, the cooking staff failed to meet our expectations and once the food arrived it was subpar to say the least.

Yes, the ambiance is wonderful, but for a restaurant to be on the property of a 5-star resort, I expected to receive outstanding service from all-parties involved. Given our reservations were at 7 pm and the food didn’t arrive until after 8:30 pm finding another restaurant wasn’t ideal so I stayed and made my frustrations known to the manager.

As far as the explanation for the delay, I was told they were really busy which clearly wasn’t the case given larger parties were served following my mom & I placing our orders. Noting all we ordered were a burger & fries and the salmon fish & chips, so our meals were fairly simple to prepare.

I will not be dining at this restaurant for the remainder of my 3 day stay. Diner beware!!!
