We have a spectacular wine list as well as a manager's wine list with incredible deals. There are both weekly and monthy promotions and unique events taking place in the restaurant so check out our events page at www.tahoedonner.com.

We always enjoy the lodge! If you live in the area you will most likely run into neighbors and enjoy friendly conversation. The staff is always wonderful and a few favorites; Nathan at the bar, Peter service manager and Olga was our server!!!!

Although the evening was on the later side, around 8 PM, there were still quite a few people enjoying dinner. Not too slow, not too busy. Setting and ambience are lovely. Service was outstanding. We shared three dishes. The shrimp and pork dumplings were delicious. Burrata frisée salad with poached pears had a lovely delicate dressing. Great combination of flavors, although textures challenging to manage in a salad. We shared the grilled salmon over spears of grilled asparagus and mashed potato. Worth every butter-laden calorie! Generous portions. No room for dessert.
Wonderful evening. Worth the small detour from downtown. We will be back with friends!

Bests scallops we've had in a long time, they were excellent. The only problem we had was the dining room was cold and drafty. They did move us to a table further away from the windows which helped but it was still a little cold and drafty. But the scallops were really really good.

This visit to The Lodge was for Valentine's Day dinner with my husband. We chose The Lodge especially for its delicious food, excellent service, and cozy, romantic ambiance. The Lodge exceeded our expectations.

We were seated by the beautiful stone fireplace in the main dining room, which is one of our favorite spots in the restaurant. Service was prompt, friendly, efficient, and professional, as it always is at The Lodge.

My husband had one of the specials, lobster ravioli, which was fresh, delicious, and quite filling. I had the seafood special, seared diver scallops. I think scallop lovers will agree, this is a dish that when properly prepared, is sublime, and when not done well, is horrible. My dinner was sublime, with the scallops perfectly seared and medium rare on the inside. There was a delicious puree (sorry, cannot remember the veggie used) and delicious grilled asparagus.

We had the special sticky toffee pudding for dessert, and it was the perfect ending to our romantic dinner.

As good as usual. Went on Monday with lower crowd and the restaurant is quieter (nice). Service was good (has sometimes been of lower quality in past instances)

The Lodge is just a great local spot. It caters to owners and guests in Tahoe Donner but really anyone in the Truckee area would enjoy it. The food is good and dependable, the ambiance is casual and authentic and service is very good. In Truckee, it's our go-to restaurant .

This is a bit off the beaten track in the Tahoe Donner part of Truckee, but worth the trip. Service was great, and the food was prepared well with quality ingredients. We all enjoyed our dinner and would definitely go back again when visiting the Tahoe/Truckee area.

Loved it! Classy yet didn’t feel like I needed to dress up too much. We went to the Lodge after skiing and went in cozy clothes and didn’t feel out of place.

Hooray! Donuts are back! If you haven't had the donuts for dessert at The Lodge, you're missing a wonderful, fluffy, delicious treat.

But I digress. We love The Lodge and are regulars. The menu changes seasonally and there are always delicious specials in addition to the seasonal menu. The seafood/fish special is a favorite for its fresh ingredients and excellent preparation. New on the menu that I love is the Noodle Bowl, a mildly spicy preparation with big chunks of chicken in a delicate broth.

Service is such a joy here. The staff are friendly and professional, and you will always see a manager out and about making sure things are going well. They work hard to ensure your visit is excellent.

I highly recommend The Lodge, and if you love donuts, get there quick before they go off the menu again!

Really good food for very reasonable prices. We weren't able to secure a table in downtown Truckee, so we thought we'd try the lodge.
