Overall my dinner I have to say is the best I've ever had at a restaurant in my lifetime outstanding!! Food was amazing from the appetizer to the desert. The owner has been there for 27 years same chef. Had a very nice chat with him. He was very appreciative of my comments. I would highly recommend eating there for a special occasion.
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!
Classic mountainside restaurant. Graham is a legend!
We always enjoy going to Graham's when we are up at Tahoe. Great cocktails, delicious food and a nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend it.
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.
Food was excellent. Desserts wet fantastic. Older lady serving was very brusque and not helpful, like we didn’t belong there
Wonderful service,food was great!
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.
Perfect, we have found our new favorite restaurant in Squaw Valley.
First time to this restaurant and it was fabulous. Jay our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. They had a creative menu and everything we had was wonderful. We will definitely be back next time we are in Tahoe.
The food and wine are excellent and good value. Ambiance is wonderful. Graham is almost always present and greets his guests. A special place for an apres-ski dinner with fireplaces, no music and no TV.
It was our first time at your restaurant and the experience was excellent👍 The food and ambience were great ! Graham greeted us at the door and also on the way out, which was greatly appreciated🍷 We will return for sure😁
Graham's was wonderful. We requested a table near the fireplace and it was amazing. The food was excellent and Graham was a very gracious host. He greeted everyone by name and came by the table often to check on us and share stories. Although fully booked with reservations, he managed to make room at the bar for a couple who came in last minute. He coordinated transportation for diners staying locally and was truly an amazing host. The place is rich with history and three of the staff have been there working with Graham for the past 27 years. Grahams will be our go to place for a wonderful dining experience every time we are in the area.
Very bad experience at Graham's. Kitchen staff left large pieces of cellophane type plastic sheeting in my salad. Server and manager did not respond sufficiently. They picked up our desert but I was still gagging over the salad experience. This place is still operating the same as it did in the 90s. Very dated and overpriced for what you get. Would never go back.
This is for sure the best restaurant in the area that has been consistently serving super delicious food with top notch service. What makes this restaurant unique is personal approach, plus unique menu and truly the friendliest service! Portion sizes are huge, you can spend entire day skiing in the mountains and show up starving at Graham’s and you will for sure have the most delicious huge meal that will not disappoint!
The food was great, the service was warm, friendly and knowledgeable and the great fireplace in the room makes it all come together.
Great place, great food. Service was excellent. Meet
Consistently the best dining experience in Squaw Valley!
Sea bass was delicious and a big piece of fish! Brie, asparagus, prosciutto appetizer was delicious but very rich...warm bread, delicious and shows care...bubbles always a favorite...nice place...pricey...
Fabulous food. Wonderful service. We are regulars and will continue.
Graham’s was a lovely place to recap our day at Squaw Valley and relax. We had a table for two next to a fireplace, enjoyed a bottle of wine, and otherwise had a wonderful meal. Graham and the staff were very attentive to all the guests — great hospitality. We ordered the filet of beef and the elk chop for our entrees — both cooked to perfection much appreciated after a long day of skiing. We definitely want to dine here again in the future!
The asparagus appetizer was great. Thanks to our waiter for telling us to share it as it was very rich. Ample portions of duck and ahi rounded out the meal. Good start to the ski season. Now we just need snow
I made this reservation to surprise my husband with a date night while on vacation in the area. The wine and food tasted delicious, but as more families arrived for dinner we were completely ignored. We are a mixed race couple and it became very clear that we were not treated equally by our server or any staff at this restaurant. Every caucasian family or couple that arrived received attentive service whereas we were completely ignored after receiving our dinner plates. I had to ask a hostess for our bill after waiting for over 30 minutes with empty plates and glasses in front of us while all tables around us were checked on and offered refills. We will not be returning nor recommending this restaurant to others.
Fantastic service & wonderful food! We sat by the window with a gorgeous view of the mountains!
Incredible food and outstanding service! Graham's is an outstanding dining experience for either special occasions or a romantic Saturday night out. I highly recommend this establishment!
The food was great, from the appetizer (prosciutto wrapped asparagus), to the seafood chowder, to the elk shank and my wife's chicken dish. It was all delicious! Our waiter, Peter, was a great addition to our dining experience. We will definitely return on our next trip to Squaw!
My wife and I always hit Grahams when we are in Tahoe and are never disappointed. Graham is always there to greet guests as they arrive and is cheerful and glad to see you. The food is consistently good, you have to try the seafood chowder, and there is enough variety to suit whatever mood you are in. The Elk chops are a favorite of ours, but the bison ribeye is a close second.
Great as always. Graham is totally charming. Feeling so welcomed every visit. Highly recommend this spot
Graham's has a limited menu, but everything is great!! Friendly atmosphere and good service!
The food was excellent! I had the Salmon and it was a huge piece and It was so delicious, I ate it all. My husband had the duck and enjoyed it.
Graham's is consistently good, a rarity in Squaw Valley. Although the place itself is a little worn, the food and service are excellent, the ambiance is old Tahoe, and it can accommodate a large group or a table for two comfortably.
We really enjoy Grahams and the staff is great! The duck is awesome as was the gazpacho!
The food was well prepared with great flavor. The kids loved their steak and mashed potatoes. The buffalo ribeye was cooked medium rare and was delicious. We also had a great tasting and moist sea bass prepared with a macadamia crust. Peter our wait person was very attentive and friendly. We look forward to going there again.
Our first visit and what a treat! Graham greeted us at the door and we immediately knew it was special. The food was delicious and a wonderful selection of wine. Our waiter was a delight, having worked at the restaurant for over 25 years.
Graham's is a rare old gem in this day of trendy new places popping up in destination resorts (such as Squaw Valley). The food, wine and ambiance are true classics, and much of the staff has been there since the beginning over 30 years ago. Something is working, and I think its due to the genial host, the great chef, great wine selection, the overall value, and of course the timeless rustic elegance of this historic Squaw building. All the entrees were prepared perfectly, and I would highly recommend the Elk and the Fish Chowder. Classic European American mountain feel.
We love Graham's. It's a classic Squaw Valley location with a wonderful history to the house. Every time we arrive, we're greeted by name by the owner, Graham, and warmly welcomed. My favorite place to sit is in front of the stone fireplace. Cocktails are always superb, the calamari is light and tender, and I love the buffalo ribeye. Highly recommend this beautiful treasure.
We went to Graham's based on recommendations and reviews I saw on OT. Turned out to be a good decision. Host/chef was very personable and friendly and the French food was very good. Excellent Caesar salad. A fresh tuna entrée also excellent. We skipped desserts but they were probably worth having - apple tatin, etc.
