About the restaurant
A memorable dining experience awaits you as you enter the Christy Hill Restaurant in the center of Tahoe City. The restaurant sits on the shoreline of Lake Tahoe on an elevated embankment offering diners a panoramic vista. The intimate setting offers guests a view that is only upstaged by the cuisine, wine and service. Spectacular sunsets that can be seen from every table is just one of the many reasons that Christy Hill was voted "Most Romantic Restaurant" and "North Lake Tahoe's Iconic Restaurants with World-Class Views" by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Executive Chef, Luis Vallin, focuses on sustainability and innovation, supporting local merchants and farmers. The thoughtful and playful menu pays homage to the tradition of Christy Hill while continuing to uplift and propel the cuisine and restaurant into exciting new territory.

With food true to the land and served by real Truckee people, The Sawyer is the perfect name for the final, most awaited addition to Schaffer’s Mill

If they served nothing but the ahi poke nachos appetizer, I would still come and have more than one of those. Unique and delicious. Just arrive early in the day, because parking in Truckee is basically terrible.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Duke's, and it was an unforgettable experience. A heartfelt thank you to Armen, the manager, for ensuring everything was perfect, to our server for their attentive and friendly service, and to the busser who kept our table immaculate throughout the night. The steaks were cooked to perfection, and the ambiance was just right for a memorable celebration. Highly recommended

The Lodge is our favorite go-to restaurant when we are in Truckee. With several cozy indoor dining areas, a friendly and lively bar, and comfortable outdoor seating overlooking the golf course for warmer months, The Lodge has something for everyone. In summer, the patio is a great place to chill, have a drink, meet with family and friends for summer fun. Service is wonderful here - many of the staff have been with The Lodge for years and are seasoned veterans who know how to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They are friendly, professional, and dedicated. The food is amazing! The menu changes seasonally and there is something for everyone. I nearly always get the fish special, but other favorites include the seasonal salads and the pasta specials. Save room for dessert! Donuts or Lemonade Pie are always a great way to end the meal. The wine and cocktails are also very good, with a nice selection of old favorites and new additions to try. The Lodge is truly a wonderful experience.

Located on the banks of the Truckee River between Truckee and Tahoe City, this rustic old Tahoe lodge has been a Tahoe dining favorite for many, many years.

Enjoy great food and drink that is creative and interesting while being delicious and familiar. The menu changes seasonally to ensure use of the most available sustainable, fresh ingredients.

Walked the bike path along the Truckee River for 30 minutes before dinner. Loved sitting by the open window listening and watching the Truckee river cascading over the boulders as it flowed by. We shared an assortment of warm rolls and butter and a delicious beet salad. We each had some of each other’s entrees (prime rib with garlic mashed potatos and asparagus, and seared scallops with butter beans and prosciutto) and enjoyed both. Finished the meal with the pear and apple crumble ala mode for dessert. A perfect evening out.
