Excellent

Great place for breakfast. We have eaten here several times. Wait time for a table is reasonable. Waitresses are attentive. Food is fresh and tasty.

The waffles at the Red Hut are delicious. There are plenty of options. We will definitely visit them again if and when we return to Lake Tahoe.

You would think breakfast is breakfast and so it would be the same everywhere but am wrong. This is one where the food is worth coming back for. I tried waffle... More

We stayed across the street and decided to stop here for breakfast. Glad we did. Reasonably priced and the food was amazing. Had the Rosti. Large portions. Quick and amazing service.

Good down home cooking at a reasonable price. This is sort of like visiting hour old auntie's house for a hearty breakfast. The oldest location on South Lake Tahoe Blvd is small, but my choice among the three locations.

Crowded but sat down immediately. Lots of locals. Wife had Texas French toast. Both were great. Service attentive and kept coffee cup full. Homey little place. I love it.

There are 2 Red Hut's in S. Lake Tahoe. This review is for the Original Red Hut Waffle Shop. There is a new one (owned by the same people) at Ski Run & Hwy 50. Food is tasty and some choices are unique (like the Rosti we had). We will probably try the new Red Hut next time, but the... More

This place was recommended to us by someone at our hotel. A great recommendation. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. The breakfast was so big i couldn't even finish it. The waitstaff were great and very friendly. Definitely would recommend and would certainly go back next time we're in the area.

The food was fantastic and the service was very good but for us the cost seemed a little pricey and there was a 30 minute wait. The decor is very cool and they have a nice little gift shop. Had to eat there based on all the hype but would not make it a regular stop during our visits to... More
