    This was our first time dining at the CH Pub and had I not chatted with the Head Chef down at Ski Hill restaurant, I never would have stumbled upon it. This is a hidden gem and a refreshing departure from the chain-y, overpriced tourist traps and fine lakeside dining in town. The restaurant itself is in the main lodge and is a throwback to earlier days. The atmosphere is cozy, clean and cheerful. The food was a pleasant surprise. The ahi poke cones, elk pot pie and schnitzel were all recommended. The poke cones were enormous, fresh and presented in handmade wonton-like cones. The elk pot pie and schnitzel (which comes three ways) were delicious. Everything is fresh, homemade and made with care. It’s family friendly and the value exceptional. Only downside is that it took us awhile to locate the restaurant due to poor lighting and signage. In the dark all of those buildings look the same…or maybe that’s the way they like it? We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and may even try it again tomorrow night as we didn’t have enough room for dessert!

    We had a wonderful dinner experience here last night. We have been here many times and it was always good but the menu and quality have been raised under new leadership. I have eaten a lot of meat and vegetable pot pies over the years but the elk pot pie here was the BEST I’ve ever had. Beautiful to look at, a light almost croissant-like flaky crust and a savory inside loaded with delicious tender meat. My wife had their classic chicken schnitzel which now comes with a choice of three sauces. She went with the pepper and onions and loved it. Because the portions are large and we are seniors, we both planned on eating half and taking the rest home. Both our plates were emptied, though, as we didn’t want to stop when we reached our target. Our server was a very nice young lady from South Africa, very friendly and professional. There were a lot of families present but the cabin atmosphere and roaring fire with ample space between the tables made for a quiet, comfortable experience. There is a limited selection of wines by the glass but those available are good and priced reasonably. Check this place out. We are already looking forward to our next visit when we return to the Tahoe area.

    Cozy pub that can accommodate all size groups. Smallish menu but something for everyone. Fair prices and good food. The wines by the glass are very reasonable too. There are also nightly specials and Friday has yummy Fish and Chips. The staff works together to get people seated and waited on quickly. They are all friendly and nice.

    This was a family get-together for 6 adults and a toddler. The staff were down one person, but you would never have known it. They stepped up, and service was flawless. The bartender is skilled, the wine selection was good, and the interesting food choices included some for our vegetarian diners. I highly recommend this restaurant for an apres ski meal.

    Cozy pub on premises. Nice menu with a wide variety of choices. Fair prices and nice friendly service. Wine/drink prices are good for Tahoe and wine pour is generous. We eat here every time we visit Tahoe. They have daily specials, Build your own salad and several favorites like schnitzel and Burgers. It’s a smallish room so neat to reserve.

    The venue was decorated nicely and the DJ was a great touch. The staff were very friendly. We had a reserved table which was a further nice touch. The food for the event was generally good. Overall a good experience. A few suggestions. The event was a bit understaffed. While the food overall was good there were a few dishes that were too fancy for the event, and didn’t hit the mark.

    Hygge dreams come true! The most cozy winter dining room, complete with rustic wood cabin interior, large stone fire place sitting area, casual small town atmosphere giving Cheers vibes, and the most hardworking, hospitable staff. Ask for Lukas who year after year has been the most friendly host in the dining room, at the bar, and out back in the woods lumbering away. And the F&B is always offering top tier comforts - tonight’s steak & au gratin and Irish coffees really hit the spot. Can’t wait to go back.

    Food is reasonably good but we waited a really long time even after reserving one of the first spots of the evening. The service was hit or miss with some great but also some disgruntled waiters. Service seemed very disorganized, not working as a team - maybe missing a leader? No idea. Food was served quickly (after a super long wait >1h) on day 1 but it was really good so we were ok with coming back again but then on day 2 we reserved an early spot (5:15pm!) with the hopes that service would be good and fast but this time service was slow but also food was slow to arrive after we had placed the order. Super frustrating. Also the same dish we had ordered the day prior which was really good on day 1 was subpar on day 2. No idea why they didn’t follow the same recipe for the same item… We’ve decided not to go back.
    Granlibakken Tahoe - Cedar House PubResponded on December 30, 2023
    Thank you for your comments. Our F&B Director is aware of the challenges being experienced in the restaurant and is addressing them. We have met about the service times and the consistency between cooks, and this is being addressed. Consistency is critical and we know this and what also tends to happen is that when the kitchen falls behind the servers who are people-pleasers sometimes bring that stress into the restaurant as they truly want you to have a great dining experience and to return. We are not giving up and we are pushing for great service levels and consistent product. Maybe give us another chance when you are next back in Tahoe, we appreciate you as a customer

    The restaurant is casual, but very warm and inviting with a big fireplace. Our server, Lucas, could not have been better. He is very meticulous about the order, but so warm and very funny. His team is very attentive, but doesn't hover. They were very kind to get the food out immediately for the 3 year old and her little sister. Grilled cheese is just bread and American cheese. The mulled wine is sooo good, better than some we've had in Europe. The Whitehall Merlot is the wine to order - very good and really reasonably priced. The hot cocoa with Peppermint Schnapps is great! The olive bread with butter was excellent! Make your own salad is your own creation made from a list of from great ingredients. We order the Norwegian Charcuterie boards, which are our favorites. The ahi cones were quite good but not much kick, which we would have liked. The fish and chips is excellent. We were so sad they had run out of Elk Pot Pie! My husband had had that and it was really good. The schnitzel could have been improved with a better sauce. It was a little gloppy. But all in all, we love this place and it is very reasonably priced.

    We had a lovely dinner! Our server, Danika, could not have been warmer and more attentive (without hovering). The entire service team was terrific. It felt like a locals' place. The restaurant is not large, on the casual side, but a lovely fire was burning in the fireplae. The rolls were quite good, and the wines were reasonably priced. I went with the Whitehall Merlot ($11) , and my husband had the Beringer Cab ($16). We shared the Norwegian Charcuterie platter, whcih was excellent! It reminded us of being in Copenhagen last Christmas - herring in sour cream, gravlax, potatoes, mustard sauce, pickled beets, farmers' cheese, pickles....great! I had the make your own salad and it was great! My husband had the Elk Pot Pie which came with exellent sauteed spinach. Delicious. I finished with a decaf coffee. We thoroughtly enjoyed our time there and have made a reservation with the family for next week.

    Friendly staff, great deck for our pups, food grilled right there. Ate here because many other places nearby were booked, but glad we did. Best part was the chill nice deck among the trees, sit at the rocking couches with fire tables!

    We really enjoyed dining on the patio. Heaters provided as needed. We had the picanha steak, Hawaiian hamburger and shrimp skewers. Service was attentive and timely. Brownie sundae shared for dessert. A really nice evening.

    Friendly and attentive international staff, great menu and chef, in a woodsy old-school lodge setting. We ate on the spacious deck in the cedar trees and enjoyed Paloma cocktails and a unique cactus/avocado appetizer. The grilled fish was to perfection. The dark chocolate vegan cake was delicious. We are regulars in Tahoe City and this restaurant is one of those at the top of our list in the area.

    The waitress didn't seem to know the menu and multiple people kept coming by to take our order although we had already ordered.

    Thanks for your review JSTAR38. You have helped us identify a weakness in our team and training will be conducted on the menu for the individual and with the team on how to know which tables have ordered and which are still waiting to do so. We apologize that you experienced service less than what we would like to be consistently delivering. We hope that you give us a second chance.

    The outdoor seating was very pleasant with the exception of the bbq smoke blowing across the Diners most of the time. The bartender came & took our order, but we waited about 15 minutes for our server & after I went to the front desk to ask for someone to help us. She seemed overwhelmed as she took our order, I suggested she write it all down, which she did put it into a tablet (& an item was omitted from the order anyway). There was a LARGE party inside the restaurant and as our sever told us, “ you’ll be waiting awhile for your food.” I went to the bbq where I could see our orders sitting there after waiting for 45 minutes. The cooks said I couldn’t take our dishes & they would get someone. As we ate our meals, which were delicious, we were never serviced again. I asked someone else for a take home box. Our server came back to give us our bill via the tablet, so I couldn’t see the itemized bill. I paid the bill & even tipped, although in hindsight, I shouldn’t have. My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant years ago and we were excited to eat here again, but sadly, we won’t be back after this experience.

    Thanks for your review Elizabeth. We apologize because your experience is far from what we typically hear about our restaurant and also not what we want you to experience. I have forwarded your comments to our management for action. We are onboarding a lot of new employees for the summer and it seems that a trainee without proper supervision may have ruined your dining experience. We really hope that you will consider giving us a second chance.

    This hotel is a nice idea with a great ropes/zip line course but the execution is really sloppy from top to bottom. Example: We enjoyed sitting out on the deck but the low end Chardonnay (wasn't offered a higher end until I asked later) was horrible/worst wine I have tasted in 30 years and shows a lack of focus that was evident in other areas. This is a great potential property. The management needs to lean into better communication (never said the rooms weren't going to be made up during our visit), buffet was average and the restaurant was just ok.
    Granlibakken Tahoe - Cedar House PubResponded on June 19, 2023
    Thank you for your review Dave. You very clearly point to a staff training deficiency which we are actively addressing. We certainly aim to deliver higher than what you describe. Our area is very dependent on seasonal employees and with most of these only arriving now we are under pressure to get them trained to the standards that our customers deserve. Thank you for highlighting areas that stood out for improvement.
