    We’ve dined at Sunnyside before and have always enjoyed the food. We weren’t served right away, but once we were, our sever did a good job. It was smoky outside and indoor dining wasn’t an option. That would have been a nice alternative…. Overall, we enjoy dining at Sunnyside and will definitely come back!

    We’ve been many times over the past 20+ years and found the food just okay this time. I think they are suffering like many restaurants - trying to balance expenses, quality, staff, etc. The location is great, view is beautiful so still worth stopping by.

    The girl at the desk recognized our name for 5:30, but did not acknowledge our 53rd anniversary as the girl on the phone assured me with comp. hula pie when I called to confirm. We were expecting to dine inside along an angled window at a table for two which we had done in years past. Instead the desk girl said we couldn't go in there, but to the bar, where at any table the music was too loud. We are fun-loving but relatively quiet people. We decided to test the cool air and go out on the deck. When we did no one guided us to a table or became our waiter, one brought us water. Another girl, delightful, was here for the summer from Moldova, and charmed us with her Romanian accent and lack of fluency in English. But her job was to bus dishes and practice her english. Finally another girl came by and brought us a glass of wine. We sat and sat. Finally a 50 year old man came by and brought us an appetizer, and later our fish tacos, all in a big hurry, though polite. No time to talk, as the waiters did in years past. We have history with Sunnyside dating back to our parents and the 60's. We decided not to make this a big anniv. dinner, but come back another time for a special dinner using a gift card from our daughter. The lack of care and service was disappointing. We’ll return, but hopefully with a better experience.

    Sat outside on the deck so it was relatively quiet with good outdoor ambiance. Glad to see that the menus has recovered and expanded from the reduced Covid menu. Fish tacos Cajun style were great. Good Cesar salad.

    Brian at the bar was great! Good service awful! Fish, dry couldn’t eat it.Veggies we’re good. Rice, dry. Waiter spilled wine on my arm, ran away, brought me a wet towel they clean tables with. We didn’t order wine. Caesar salad brought late, we sent it back and we’re charged for it.

    This is only the second time I've eaten at Sunnyside. It was crowded in the outdoor dining section, so the staff were running from table to table. There were 4 in our party, 2 had never eaten there. The first issue was one persons order was wrong. The second was the bottom buns on two of the burgers were hard as a rock (seriously, I couldn't even cut it with a knife). Although the table server was very friendly, we kept having to ask for things like salt n pepper, mayo, ketchup, etc, because we'd get one request out and she'd dart off again. I was actually embarrassed to have brought my friends there sadly.

    Not the least expensive restaurant in the north lake area, but location, location. location. We entertained a friend from out of town and wanted him to have the best Tahoe experience during his short stay. Andrea, our waitress was a delight, and we always look forward to chatting with her. The classic Sunnyside desert, shared by three was the highlight of our meal.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and stayed at Sunnyside for 4 nights. Annie was our server 3 of those times - she is so friendly and makes sure your service is perfect. The view at Sunnyside is our most favorite on the lake. The sunrises are spectacular. Others share our opinion as it's a bustling place with families, dogs, hikers, boaters and people just out enjoying the rest of the summer in the Sierra. West Shore and Sunnyside never disappoint. We will be back one day soon. Thank you!!

    This was my first time dining at Sunnyside and enjoyed it. The weather was perfect for seating on the deck. Live music was pleasant. Server was delightful and very attentive. Food came out quickly and was good, not great. Fish in the fish tacos was a little over cooked, but the dressings were yummy. The Mai Tai was apparently terrible, my husband couldn't finish it. My father-in-law used to dine at Sunnyside often, but he was disappointed in how casual the menu became. I did think the options were pretty limited and we really struggled to find something to order. I would for sure recommend dining here for the atmosphere and service, but not for the food. Maybe lunchtime is better?

    We love the association of restaurants: Dukes, Kimos, Hula Grill, etc. never a bad meal, but this was by far the worst meal and service we have experienced anywhere, at any restaurant in the last twenty years. The Poke Buddha bowl was confusing, bland, with a paltry ahi serving. The chicken was beyond cooked to death and plain inedible. The fish of the day (halibut) beyond overcooked. This was a very expensive and disappointing dinner. The best we can say is “the drinks were good,” and they were. But man, you have to really want them to tolerate the slow service. Save yourself a TON of money and eat anywhere else till they right the ship.

    Sat for 25 minutes and no one waited on us except initially when we sat down. There was a storm which meant outside diners had to come in. We are going to try again tonight as we have been here many times and enjoyed it.
