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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
