    We went out to dinner for Thanksgiving because we were leaving Tahoe the next day and with three people, too many leftovers driving two days in the car wouldn’t be good! We have always loved Sunnyside and have been dining there for the last 30 years. The ambiance is relaxing and warm. The wait staff are engaging and very welcoming. They were serving traditional Thanksgiving dinner so two of us selected the dinner while the other ordered fish and chips. We always start off our meal with the fried zucchini. It’s like a rite of passage! We’re never disappointed with the zucchini as it’s always crispy and hot. Conversely, the Thanksgiving dinner wasn’t all that flavorful. The turkey was quite tender which was surprising considering how many dinners they turned out that night! The green beans were very good. Stuffing, gravy and potatoes just needed a little extra seasoning and it would’ve been fine. The fish, on the other hand was delicious! Beer and vodka battered super crispy around flaky, tender fish with equally crispy fries and home made tartar sauce was the hit! Our wonderful waiter really made our night. He was so accommodating and friendly. Poor guy was running all over but had a smile on his face and just made our experience so pleasurable. We’ll always come back to Sunnyside. So many great memories. Thank you!

    I would have given a 5 of 5. The reason why. I ask the waitress if the Filet Mignon was choice or prime. She said she would check. When she returned she was told it was prime so I ordered the Filet Mignon. Upon my first bit I realized it was NOT prime Filet Mignon. You would think if someone would got through the trouble to ask, they might know the difference.

    Made an early reservation with our 3 kids ( 2 of which were 1 year old twins). Our server ( I think his name was Woody) was kind, attentive and got us everything we needed quickly. Food was delicious as always, and we got a beautiful family pic at sunset and a hula pie to go. This place is a family staple, we love it.

    Scenery and service excellent as always. Loved our waitress. Very friendly and informative about choices. Food was good. I have dined at Sunnyside restaurant many times and always enjoyed it. The local’s 20% off on Thursdays was a great bonus. Dinner could have been a bit hotter but it wasn’t cold so we didn’t mention it to the staff. Normally not an issue.

    Bar service by Sean was excellent. Disappointed with the halibut portion served. After splitting the entree, the halibut portion was almost too small to fit on a Ritz cracker! I know T&S can do better than that having dined at several of their restaurants on Maui and Kauai.

    Dinner was spectacular; AND if you were a carb lover, the continental breakfast seemed fine. But many of us try to avoid danish and croissants to start the day( for better or worse). But, by 715 there was no salmon/lox and only REALLY hard to peel eggs for breakfast. Also, there were no adjacent stores or restaurants to address the limits in the breakfast. The room was quiet, and had great views; staff were professional (even if somewhat limited in number). I do recommend Sunnyside, but would advise the health conscious to be conscience of the limited offerings for breakfast. Thanks Dave Irish / Sandy Cortes

    As an older woman sharing a meal with her sister we felt ignored by our waiter. It took at least 25 minutes for him to take our order, he didn’t seem that busy. I don’t know if his lack of attention was because of the stereotype that women don’t tip well, however regardless it did detract from the beautiful view and the delicious food. The setting is spectacular!

    The one thing is that we were able to make reservation for outside but then upon our arrival we were told they don’t do reservations for outside so we had to sit inside. It should be stated somewhere that no res for outside can be made or not allow for res outside to be made. Food was good and really no complaints but it also was not above average. Would I go back? Yes

    We like to eat at the TS family of restaurants (Duke's, Jake's Del Mar, etc.) and so while we were in Lake Tahoe, we made a point of eating at Sunnyside. We were lucky to be sat outside with a gorgeous view of the lake. We shared a Buddha Bowl and had one glass of wine, one beer and a slice of Hula Pie. The only think that I think could be improved on was the service which wasn't overly friendly or polished like we've experienced at their other restaurants. Free parking was a bonus.

    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!

    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.
