    Food was great. Service was ok. Food took at least 45 minutes to come out and that was from the point our appetizers were done.

    At first I was a little annoyed because we had a reservation and it took awhile for our table to be ready, but once I got over myself everything was awesome! We grabbed a drink in the pub while we waited. We were seated at a table outside with a gorgeous view. Our server, Olga, as well as everyone who brought our food, drinks, etc., were super fun and engaging. We started with the Ahi Poke appetizer and the tempura french beans. I highly recommend both. Our entrees ranged from the short rib, to the pasta of the day, to the rib eye. They also have an extensive wine list and creative cocktails. Everything was delicious. This is definitely a busy place but worth the wait! If you're in the Truckee or North Tahoe area, The Lodge Restaurant and Pub are a must!!

    Service was greatly improved from our last visit in June. Great ambiance on the deck, quiet and relaxing. Food was consistent and perhaps slightly improved flavors from before. Would love to see the menu change a bit more. Great neighborhood dining location.

    Matt Hale, the new Exec. Chef and the team at the Lodge Restaurant & Pub have an outstanding recipe, so to speak, with the revamped menu and the delicious food they are preparing. Max, our waiter, was terrific and handled a couple of special requests perfectly. Overlooking the green golf course while sitting on the deck on a warm summer night was just about the epitome of a "Perfect Tahoe Summer Night". We will be return customers, soon!

    Everyone in my group of three was very dissatisfied with their food. The lodge hamburger has always been a favorite of ours for the last 18 years but no more. It was blah. The brisket sandwich was heavy and greasy and we couldn’t eat it. And the fish tacos were over cooked. All in all really sorry to see the food go downhill

    Delicious entrees, everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. We had the octopus appetizer, that was on point as well. Attentive service. Would have felt more comfortable if more of the servers were wearing masks but I understand it's not a requirement.

    Reconnecting with old friends Service and drinks fabulous. Striped Bass over done. My bad for not requesting medium rare but the skin was black. Like a steak, it should be medium rare or medium, not well done. Otherwise still love this place and the staff!

    Our waiter was excellent and all out appetizers were great. We ordered the striped bass fish special. Fish was cooked perfectly but not much flavor to the sauce. We would have preferred more sauce or a little more flavor to the dish. Overall the food is always good at the Lodge!

    This is a cut above your average ‘club’ restaurant, well above in fact. Comfortable decor, friendly service and good food. A new chef has recently arrived and it looks as if he will be making upgrades to an already solid menu.

    Very disappointed. We got married there for 4 years ago and we were very excited to be back. Our appetizer (ahi tuna) and my dinner (pasta special) had NO flavor. Husbands dinner was good.. They did absolutely nothing for our anniversary, didn't even acknowledge it. Don't ask us if we are celebrating a special occasion when we make our reservation if you don't care. We will not be back and I will make sure to not recommend to anyone.
