Truckee Tavern wasn't horrible but it wasn't very good, either. The $49 ribeye was a particular joke, like one of those breakfast steaks -- diner food at gourmet restaurant prices. Nice outdoor dining area. Indifferent service. Edible food.

One of our favorite spots to eat in Truckee. Their mac&cheese is a family favorite. We love sitting on the balcony and watching what is happening downtown.

Haven't been here in years and it was really good overall. They've done a great job with outdoor seating, reasonably priced excellent food and service.

One of the best burgers I have had. We loved being on the balcony overlooking the activity on the street. Staff were all compliant with COVID-19 rules.
Will go back next time we are in the area.

They did a good job distancing tables- and all staff were in masks. Our entire party felt safe dining there. They have amazing gin cocktails and food is quite good.

They were incredibly responsible and socially distant! Very respectful of their health as well as others and we felt very well taken care of. Definitely enjoy ourselves every time we go there and love them now even more!

Everything we ordered was fantastic! I split the burger, side salad and Mac&Cheese with a friend. The burger was cooked perfectly, the salad was delicious and beautiful due to the perfectly ripe strawberries and gorgeous multi-color radishes. I couldn’t have dinner at the Truckee Tavern and not at least try a little of whatever mac&cheese was currently in the menu. Their mac&cheese is always so smooth and creamy. The bacon bits in the current version added great flavor. We will definitely be back again this summer.

A bit too noisy and limited choices for those who don’t want to eat lots of red meat. Salmon was ver good but it was the only fish choice after appetizers

Came twice with my kids. Ordered the NY steaks. I recommend to avoid the starter bread to leave room for the meat.
It was made exactly to the level I asked.
Not cheap, but worth it.

The food is always reliable, but they were “out of buns” at 7:45pm, for what is arguably their most popular item on their menu. The service was the worst I’ve ever encountered. Unapologetically slow and inept.

Celebrated our anniversary, 3rd year running. The everything about Truckee Tavern is enjoyable. Hands down the best restaurant, cocktails (Best cocktails in California? Very likely), and food in the Tahoe area.

Great location, vibrant bar scene, but we are not part of that. Pasta dish was delicious! The pork chop was tough, carrots were bland and unexciting.

Great atmosphere. They have a very creative cocktail list. We each had a cocktail, and they were very good. One tasted like warm apple pie!! Service was excellent (thank you Justin). We had the grilled shrimp as an appetizer, 1/2 chicken and the salmon. I
love salmon and order it often when I am out. It was just ok. Not very flavorful and for $42 I would expect a little more creativity in the dish . Overall I am sure we will return.

Love this place! Hendrix and Cat Stevens in the same loop piped overhead, but not enough to disrupt the conversation. No better cocktails on the mountain, and the pork chop is a must-have! Service has been the best every time we’ve been here.
