In business for 21 years, Graham's is located in the historical Poulsen family home. Built in 1946, Sandy and Wayne raised 8 children here. Their home now is our restaurant and also the Christy Lodge which has 6 hotel rooms. Just minutes away from all of the activities in Squaw Valley, Graham's has been a favorite Apres Ski and Dinner House to locals and tourists alike. Summertime means bocce ball with Hor's D'oeuvres and cocktails before dinner on our heated patio with spectacular views of the mountain peaks. Winter time is the time to enjoy the warmth and cozy ambiance of a true mountain lodge, open wood burning fireplaces, vaulted ceilings create a unique Tahoe experience. Graham's also has an active bar scene with full menu dining at the bar. Award winning wine list with 450 selections. Menu changes weekly with a good selection of fresh seafood, great steaks and house specials such as seafood chowder, cheese fondue, duck cassoulet, osso bocco and tarte tatin for dessert.

Love this place. I've been there several times. A bit pricey, but the cabin feel and the multiple fireplaces make it unique. But the draw is Graham himself. He is a very friendly happy and enjoyable person who makes every effort to chat with all his guests making everyone feel special.

We recently had a wonderful dinner at Graham’s. We had some unexpected last minute changes to our party size and timing and Graham, himself, was incredibly accommodating and patient with us. The food was excellent and it was a great experience!

Once again, we had an excellent dinner at Grahams. The seafood chowder was excellent and the Caesar was very good. The chocolate mouse cake was a delicious ending to a nice meal.

I have been eating at Grahams for 20 years or so and have never been disappointed. The Staff, that includes Graham himself, are the best. You just have to go there. If you are not up on your wines, the staff will guide you to the price point and quality on the wine list that you desire. They will also describe the menu items precisely, and that is what you will get. If something is not right, they will correct it if possible. I had the Buffalo Rib Eye last week, first Buffalo Steak ever. I will be ordering that up again, DELUXE. If you like French Fries, be careful, you may want to live there.

Staying at Squaw Valley for Valentine’s week. Read the reviews and made a reservation for Valentine’s Day. Arrived about 45 minutes early, hoping to have a drink at the bar. The bar was full and instead of having us wait, they seated us straight away. We loved the ambiance and the fireplace. Ordered the king crab legs and asparagus dishes for appetizers. Fabulous! The butter for the bread was made from artichoke hearts, basil, garlic, and olive oil. Amazing. For the entrees we had the Elk Chop and Bison Ribeye. Both were prepared perfectly. Kerry, our server, did a great job. No charge for corkage. Our dessert, the Linzer Torte, was over the top. We absolutely loved the atmosphere and the food. Excellent dining choice. We will return as a regular spot each time we are in the area.

We were there an hour before our reservations, but they welcomed us and seated us right away. I had the duck breast and my husband had the special pasta. Both were wonderful. We would definitely recommend it to friends.
