Great food and fun time even during Covid!
It wasn't bad enough that the food was bland (tasted like frozen, flash thawed, and cooked), the waitress told us we couldn't take our time, because due to coronavirus, the restaurant is hoping to turn all its tables... pathetic.
We really enjoyed our dinner out here over the 4th of July weekend. Location on the lake is so lovely. Felt comfortable with the table spacing and cleaning protocol observed during COVID. Fried zucchini was yummy and the Sunnyside Refresh cocktail was delicious. Service was prompt and friendly.
Love Sunnyside–Tahoe. We have been coming here for over 25 years and always have a lovely evening or a fun time for lunch. We even love stopping by on our bike ride to hang at the bar for a beer and some yummy appetizers!!
The Tahoe charm and tradition remain at the core of Sunnyside. The service was excellent, as was the food and drinks. We shared the crab cakes as an appetizer and I had the Cioppino for my entree. Fresh and tasty!
Great lakeside location. Great service. Would highly recommend.
Great Fathers Day experience. Service was great and I appreciate how careful they were given the Civid situation. Typically Sunnyside is jam packed, it was nice to enjoy it when it is less crowded.
Fantastic food, service and view
All was wonderful as usual!!
Son’s birthday with family.
Outstanding, Glad to be Back! Can't wait to order a drink after docking my Boat!
Best meal we've ever had at Sunnyside! Excellent fried zucchini and excellent filet mignon! Service was also excellent
Reunion with friends.
Reliable restaurant-- you know what you are getting, food will be good but rarely great. Menu has been simplified over the years so it doesn't seem to be " fine" dining, more like expanded bar menu. Service was slow during peak time. Many large parties so it was a bit noisy.
Always a treat!
Over priced, food just ok. Very loud in the restaurant.
This is a special occasion place for me. It’s not like it used to be though. Food came to the table cold and the waitress was very on attentive. Maybe it was an off night for them but in the past 20 years I’ve been going there it has never been like this. Everything was less than mediocre for a premium price.
The atmosphere was very nice with a view of the lake while dining and the food was very good. If I were to make one recommendation is to play better background music instead of oldies, which took away from the overall experience.
They got rid of the fine singing side and turned it into a Denny’s. Very sad. Have been coming here for 50 years.
We had a wonderful dinner at Sunnyside. It was busy because of the holiday weekend and Valentine’s Day. However, our waitress was really good and made it seem like we were the only ones there. Fantastic food and beautiful view of the lake.
Food was good
Hamburgers are really good, anything else, not so much
You would be be hard pressed to find a better place on the Westshore. It checks all of the proverbial boxes - good food, service, and atmosphere.
Service and view were great but both our steaks were very under cooked and not the best in general! Other than that it was lovely.
Took 30 minutes for food to arrive - meatloaf not tasty , spaghetti not tasty - All told - very average
Had a great meal! Loved the views of the lake and the restaurant was nice too
The food was excellent and of sufficient quantity. The room was a bit noisy and our waitress was good, but not sufficiently attentive. She neglected to bring one person's main dish and forgot to bring a requested soup.
Cocktails were terrible. The food was not prepared well. The staff was not sufficient to match the volume on the holiday.
One of the best locations on the lake. Great food, nice wine list and spectacular views. Service is excellent as well.
My server was exceptional! I made a reservation about a month in advance and table was ready as promised
Beautiful, warm& friendly vibe. Delicious food& personable staff!
The people who work here are lovely.
We really enjoyed our family Christmas Eve dinner. Restaurant was full so a bit hectic for the servers, but the cooking was very well executed. We also enjoyed meeting the jolly maitre d, who came around to every table to check and see how everyone was doing. Hope to return in the summer when the sun sets later in the evening and we can view the lake. We very much appreciate the family friendly atmosphere since we have young children in our party.
We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner. Such a wide selection and because it was a buffet, you could choose whatever you wanted, from salmon to Prime Rib!
We went to Sunnyside for our daughter's birthday celebration and everything was great! Service was especially good. Our waiter was very attentive, but not overbearing. Food was excellent and our party of 5 enjoyed every bite including the complimentary birthday ice cream cake!
Service was incredible. Very well trained staff.
Went for my daughters bday dinner and it did not disappoint in any way! Food and service was remarkable. It was a little noisier than I’m sit with is usually due to a large party with a lot of kids but as a family restaurant it was fine. Go to place every time we are in Tahoe.
We always enjoy Sunnyside when visiting Tahoe City. This is a favorite restaurant year round. The food and drinks are always good. We’ll come back again!
