Sunnyside's spectacular location on the pristine West Shore makes it the place to be in Lake Tahoe. Panoramic views of the lake and mountains beyond abound from nearly every table and during the summer, guests can also enjoy alfresco dining on Lake Tahoe’s largest outdoor deck. The Lakeside Dining Room features new American cooking – fresh, vibrant presentations of American classics with a focus on premium seafood and steaks. The award winning wine list has been carefully selected to complement the menu and offers a wide variety of wines including some rare & limited offerings. Our Mountain Grill offers a more casual atmosphere and is seated on a walk-in basis only. Sunnyside is also a classic lakefront lodge with guest accommodations overlooking Lake Tahoe. The 23 mountain inspired lodge rooms are inviting places to sink into after the day's activities.

We came for dinner and were so disappointed that a longtime favorite has gone downhill. We always start with zucchini fries and they were greasy and over cooked. That set the tube for the rest of the meal. The food was poorly presented and visually unappealing. Flavors were ok but it was an inexpensive waste of money. Please get your kitchen staff in order.

I would have given 5 stars but for the fact that we were not seated at an outside table, despite my request via phone call (as sunnyside requests), and promised the evening before. We got a window table, fine, but disappointing, and not the way I like to start an evening - the Caesar salad was so heavily dressed my friend couldn’t even taste the nice piece of salmon she ordered with it.

We split an Apple and candied pistachio salad which was good but had no apples or pistachios. We asked our waitress if they were missing and she said oh they must have forgotten to put them on but didn’t offer to bring them or refund us.... my halibut dish was $34 and the halibut was about 1/2 the size of a playing card. Service was good and of course the ambiance is lovely but the menu is really lackluster and my fish dish was rather lukewarm. My sister’s French fries were stone cold.

One word: Disappointing. The overall quality and service has really gone down. We've been coming here for 15+years and it's usually one of our favorite places in Tahoe. This time, we had poor service (slow, no clearing plates between courses, messed up food order, etc.) and the food was not good. Fish was dry and chewy with no flavor, and $15 glass of wine tasted like it had been sitting open in the fridge for a couple of days. Very disappointing, as we had hoped to celebrate a special occasion. I've had better food and service at Cheesecake Factory.

Great food and service. Only issue I had was that it was not relayed how much the mimosa were and we were charged $10.00 a glass . We each had 2 coming to $20.00 that was a little bit of a shock. As almost all buffet’s I’ve been to include unlimited mimosa’s . But we will return love the food and service.

This brunch was a complete delight. Last year we were at Garwoods for their Easter brunch. It was fun but super intense, noisy and chaotic. So the Sunnyside lovely and peaceful atmosphere was such a relief. The food was amazing and we had excellent service from our server and the entire crew. I was so impressed and will go again next year. My adult children all enjoyed it immensely also.

We went on Easter. The hot food on the buffet line was warm to cold. For example, the egg Benedict, potatoes, sausage were cold. The breakfast was 37.00 per person. I think it's a beautiful place with Fabulous views. I would go back for another meal but I'd stay away from the Sunday brunches.

Easter brunch was just perfect! The staff is always so friendly and they make you feel like your not just at a restaurant but at someone's home. Always making sure your enjoying your experience. Cindy always welcomes you with a warm smile even when it's crazy busy. When entering the dining room you can see that everyone is laughing and enjoying their experience at Sunnyside. Sierra at all time was attentive and enjoyable to talk too. Allie and many staff members love to say hi and make you feel like family. One thing about Sunnyside they want their guests to be like family! JR, the Manager is there to make sure we are relaxed and enjoying our experience and the wonderful food. JR likes to make sure that all their guests are important and welcome them back. We got the pleasure to meet the new Executive Chef, Will, who reached out to the guests also. Looking forward to trying his new summer menu.
Great food, Great staff, Great view, Great time!!!

We did the easter brunch, and since there was an easter egg hunt, that assumes that you expected kids to be there. I would just recommend making the experience more kid friendly, so having beverage containers more suited to children and baskets for the easter egg hunt (none were provided), and bowls for the yogurt & granola. Overall though, it was really a lovely time and those were very minor conveniences. The staff was also abundant and helpful. Location on the water is excellent. Would def. recommend this to people.

There are very few restaurants at the Lake that can match Sunnyside. Between the views, the service and the food, it may very well be the best. Everyone had on big smiles, including Mr. Ox, the manager. You can't go wrong booking the Sunnyside before sunset.

Everything was great except for the hen party that was seated near us. A groups of screeching women. It was like dolphin people were having a yelling match. The server was nice enough to move us to the other end of the restaurant which helped. We had dessert in the bar and laughed up with the staff. I would go back with out hesitation, but may take an airhorn to blast back at any unruly "hens".

Was looking for a place to eat on our way back from skiing at NorthStar to our timeshare in South Lake Tahoe. The food was delicious and our server was great. We shared the zucchini sticks and then had the Mixed Seafood Hot Pot and the Short ribs Bolognese. Would highly recommend and would definitely come back again. And views of the lake are beautiful.
