The menu is limited to what you would expected for a small dinner. The food is good and comes out pretty quick. Daily specials rotate per day of the week. The ice cream here is the best part. Huge scoops, good prices, and great taste. Definitely worth a trip.

Ate here for the last morning in Lake Tahoe. Place is neatly decorated and has a gift shop with a pretty cool selection. Decor is geared for the ski season throughout the restaurant. Servers were attentive and the food came out hot and pretty tasty. The hash browns were a little under seasoned, but still good. Nice place to just... More

We found this restaurant with Trip Advisor! I loved the food, but the wait on a latte was ridiculous! We had a large party, 7, so we waited in the coffee shop area. There was only one customer in front of me, and one behind me. He was making specialty drinks for the "shop" as well as the restaurant, so... More

Get there early as regulars are always there. Great country breakfast along with excellent pancakes.

Casual breakfast at its best. Always tasty, filling, and fair priced. The service has always been friendly and timely when possible. It's well deserved reputation makes it a busy place at certain times but it's still worth the wait. It's been a long standing tradition to go there whenever I'm at South Lake/Stateline. Comfort food for all.

I'm usually in Tahoe to snow ski and make it a point to stop by the Red Hut (either in South Lake or Stateline, both are great) to fuel up before hitting Heavenly for a big day. I can only speak to their breakfasts, but they are fabulous, with huge omelets, pancakes and French toast, hash browns done just right... More

The omelette I had here was excellent-huge, expertly cooked, and with lots of fillings. With Lake Tahoe being a resort town it seems like there are lots of places to get ripped off--this is not one of them. The hash browns were addictive, the servers were super-friendly, and the prices are reasonable. My daughter had one of the kids meals... More

The food was nothing out of the ordinary for being diner food, but the service made our visit so great. We were starving, the waiter immediately took our order, and we were served in less than 10 minutes. Dishes I'd recommend: the bacon waffle, the patty melt, and the veggie burger. **we tried to go for breakfast but the wait... More

We spent four days in Tahoe and had breakfast at a different place each morning: Driftwood Cafe, Heidi's, A Cup of Cherries, and Red Hut. The overall family favorite was Red Hut. Among the four of us we had two omlettes, one order of pancakes and one order of waffles. We also had a bowl of local berries (strawberries, blueberries,... More

Stayed four nights in Tahoe and had four breakfasts. This was the best breakfast we had. (The review is for just out one dining experience.) We must have hit the timing right because we didn't have to wait. (There were only two of us, so that might have helped.) When we left, there was a wait to get in. And... More
