Choose between a cozy table in our Alpine Dining Room or along the river in our River View Dining Room. In the summer, dine on our patio that overlooks the river. Enjoy great food and drink that is creative and interesting while being delicious and familiar. The menu changes seasonally to ensure use of the most available sustainable, fresh ingredients.

We were there for Mother’s Day Brunch. It was buffet style with a mains food line, an appetizer table and a dessert table. The selection was great and everything we tried was tasty and well presented. We got 1 drink token each and got mimosas. There was live acoustic guitar music that was nice and low enough that we were able to chat without problem. Like pretty much all food in the Tahoe/Truckee area, it was a tad pricey but we enjoyed ourselves and my wife was happy with the choice.

Tam and her team are amazing! We had a blast for our team retreat with a delicious dinner before bowling. The food was so good! We couldn’t stop eating :). Drinks were delicious, great presentation! We loved the music that accompanied our dinner and bowling. We were laughing, singing, along and dancing! HIGHLY recommend this as a group destination or just a fun date night!

The ambience is what it's all about. Also, the beer and wine selections are terrific, (thank you for carrying great CA wines), and we always enjoy the Mai Tais. The food we love is the zucchini. We typically share a Hula Pie, which was so yummy. We go to Sunnyside at least once every time we are at Tahoe (a few times/year). It's been a life-long tradition for us. We have celebrated special occasions there, met up with big groups of friends and family there, and gone for date night, especially to take in those amazing lake views. We do not go for the food, frankly, as most of the entrees (and salads) are just okay. But Sunnyside is special. The energy is always lively and friendly because of the staff. Kudos to the smiling, welcoming, young people who seem to enjoy their work. Our server was terrific, genuine, efficient, warm. We had a wonderful time.
