    The fish was crusted halibut, good, dry, there was a dribbling of sauce but would have been better if lots more sauce. roasted carrots good. Our table for two was next to a large table that had a bachelor party of loud guys.

    Seems like as it was getting dark, the rush was on to feed and get us out ASAP. I’ve never had food delivered to the table so fast- we’ll before we finished the appetizer on the table.

    Quintessential West Shore Tahoe dinning experience! A MUST for a full moon evening! (They hold their own in winter, too.) Casual, up-beat atmosphere. Good bar. (Pretty good wine list.) Decent food, sizeable portions. Can't beat the ambience!

    First of all, be careful to note that the street address is wrong. It is 1835, not 1850W Lake Blvd. It’s about a mile and half difference, and open table and the restaurant site have the wrong address. Maybe it’s their business address? The menu is small but varied, and our food was very good. The goat cheese tart, the mahi mahi tacos, and the poke were all excellent. We ate outside on a perfect evening, so we got lucky.

    We scheduled a birthday dinner here, couldn't get in till 8pm, but we figured at least we'd get to see the sun set. Unfortunately, we weren't taken to our table till 8:25, so no view, just dark! The manager on site got us seated and apologized with a couple of appetizers, which was nice. Our waiter was friendly but very rushed. Without the benefit of the view, the food was just okay, and the ambiance was loud. Would not go back for dinner, maybe just drinks and snacks to enjoy the great deck and view.

    A very busy Friday night made our 8pm dinner experience unpleasant. We sat for 25 minutes before anyone offered us water or drinks. We had to approach the hostess to finally request an order of apps and drinks. We placed our dinner order when the apps arrived and asked for napkins and place settings. When our meals arrived we still didn’t have any silverware. We waited patiently, but finally had to approach the hostess again for attention. Our dinner was nearly cold when we received our silverware. The food was great, but service was awful. We won’t be back to Sunnyside on a Friday night.

    We were sat on the patio at a beautiful table overlooking Lake Tahoe, when it began to pour rain. We asked to be reseated and within five minutes we had found a nice table by the window inside. The waitress was very happy to see us and treated us with kindness and the best service was provided.

    Always a great summer spot! Summer in Tahoe isn’t complete without at least one dinner on the deck at Sunnyside. It is a family tradition for so many Californians and never disappoints..

    Sunnyside has a very simple menu. The steak frites was probably the best entree ordered out of 5 entrees. The grilled chicken sandwich has a portion of the breast that was thick on one side and thin on the other so it did not fit a round bun which made it hard to eat. This is not a foodie experience restaurant. The view and ambiance is fantastic. Go for a burger. We had a poor server experience. Not sure why since this is not a new restaurant. It was very busy but every lakefront restaurant is very busy. Parking is almost impossible since their lot is small and this is a lodge as well. We had to park down the street 2-3 blocks and on the West side of the highway in a neighborhood. Walking back to our car in the dark was not a leisurely stroll since it is very dark in the mountains and it is on a very busy highway. All in all it was just ok.

    This is a lively, fun place to have a drink or meal, with a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. The menu is limited, but everything is good. The bartender knows what he/she is doing. All the waitstaff is very friendly and accomodating.

    My family has been coming to Sunnyside for years to take in the view on Lake Tahoe while enjoying drinks (the Mai Tais are especially good). I decided to take my boyfriend there for the first time so he could see what the hype was about, but we were a bit disappointed with the service and ambiance. We had a reservation and still had to wait around 15 minutes to be seated and greeted by a waiter. On top of that, the tables on the deck were so close together that we were entirely too squished to enjoy ourselves. With prices being quite expensive for the type of fair Sunnyside offers, we expected better service and seating arrangements.

    We always come here for the views. Food is usually pretty good, not excellent. What struck me this time was the lack of maturity from our server. Yes, they are only early 20’s college students. However, she kept asking if we were ready to order « apps ». Huh? Do you mean appetizers or starters? It’s also very irritating when the server asks « are WE ready to order dessert or more wine » as if she is joining us. This will not keep me from continuing to come. It’s just that the Manager may want to do some additional training with its staff to ensure that they can communicate appropriately with an over 30 year old crowd.

    Pathetic! I’ve been coming or Sunnyside for 40 years! The food is awful! Limited menu and when they run out of something like lemon butter sauce for the fish…they just serve the dry fish with out it! Our waiter apologized so many times, but no price adjustment or comped anything! The beautiful lake view kept me calm, but the owners should be ashamed! Do yourself a favor and get fast food and and a blanket before you waste your money.

    They need to do some cleaning on the outside deck and entryway. Both are filthy and greasy. Not a good first impression when you walk in. New carpet in the entry and power wash the deck are no brainers. But it appears management is either blind or not involved in day to day operations. The facility has gone downhill and is very tired looking.

    Great view of Lake Tahoe. The menu has slimmed down quite a bit offering mostly bar food, burgers and salad. Nice to see families outside enjoying the summertime weather. We sat on the pier which felt like our own private dock. I would suggest making reservations after 7 because the hot summer sun can be quite hot.
