    Love dining here and supporting our local restaurant. The food and service is always good. Unfortunately, pretty pricey for the amount of food you get.

    Our dinner at The Lodge was excellent from start to finish. We were greeted and seated promptly and our wonderful server, Mike, got our drinks promptly and let us know the specials. He was friendly, fast, and professional, and did an excellent job of answering questions and describing both the wines and the meals we chose. Very helpful! I had the fish special which was lingcod that evening, and it was excellent. My husband had a burger and fries, and the burger was cooked to perfection and served with crispy fries. We shared the donuts for dessert, which came with three dipping sauces (chocolate, strawberry, lemon curd) and were perfectly fried and delicious. The restaurant is beautiful, with a casual mountain vibe, views of the beautiful golf course, and comfortable seating. This is our favorite Truckee restaurant. The menu changes regularly and has something for everyone, including vegetarian options and a children's menu. The wine and beer lists are comprehensive, and hand-crafted cocktails are always good. The bar is a great place to grab a drink or dinner, watch a game, meet friends. Service here is always excellent. The staff are courteous, friendly, efficient, and professional. We dine here regularly and have always had wonderful dinners, either just us as a couple, or with friends.

    First visit as a new resident of Tahoe Donner and we were not disappointed. Food and drinks were excellent (pork chop, fish tacos, burger and chowder) and our waitress Kate was very informative. We look forward to future visits.

    I really hate to write this because we have been going to the Lodge for years. The pasta special, Pappardelle with short rib ragu was simply bad. The pasta was a stuck together mass. The "ragu" was simply their usual short rib broken up on top of the pasta. It wasn't mixed in because as I noted it was a giant lump. I did mention this to the waitress but nothing was done. My wife's fish tacos were OK.

    So disappointed in the food. Ahi poke app was tasteless. Such a disappointment from the previous version. The fish tacos were boring - not nearly the level of flavor as the previous fish tacos. One guest at our table commented “the french fries are better than the tacos”. Sadly, we have always looked forward to dinners at The Lodge and last night when we left, we actually said we didn’t need to go back. Sorry for the bad review. It was not worth it.🙁👎

    This is a beautiful setting with absolutely perfect weather this time of year. However, we were largely ignored by our server when she would spend much more time at other tables. We were brought the incorrect beer, and when she finally noticed, we were almost done with our food. It was replaced, but then she tried to charge us for 3 beers when we only really had 2. The food is good and the setting is very nice. Service needs improvement.

    At first I was a little annoyed because we had a reservation and it took awhile for our table to be ready, but once I got over myself everything was awesome! We grabbed a drink in the pub while we waited. We were seated at a table outside with a gorgeous view. Our server, Olga, as well as everyone who brought our food, drinks, etc., were super fun and engaging. We started with the Ahi Poke appetizer and the tempura french beans. I highly recommend both. Our entrees ranged from the short rib, to the pasta of the day, to the rib eye. They also have an extensive wine list and creative cocktails. Everything was delicious. This is definitely a busy place but worth the wait! If you're in the Truckee or North Tahoe area, The Lodge Restaurant and Pub are a must!!

    Service was greatly improved from our last visit in June. Great ambiance on the deck, quiet and relaxing. Food was consistent and perhaps slightly improved flavors from before. Would love to see the menu change a bit more. Great neighborhood dining location.

    Matt Hale, the new Exec. Chef and the team at the Lodge Restaurant & Pub have an outstanding recipe, so to speak, with the revamped menu and the delicious food they are preparing. Max, our waiter, was terrific and handled a couple of special requests perfectly. Overlooking the green golf course while sitting on the deck on a warm summer night was just about the epitome of a "Perfect Tahoe Summer Night". We will be return customers, soon!
