We had a really good breakfast and it didn't cost as much as some nearby restaurants. The staff is attentive and friendly, the place is informal, clean and pleasant. I would definitely come here again for breakfast.

Red Hut has great food at reasonable prices. The service is prompt and friendly. I ordered the grilled avocado cheese and tomato sandwich and it hit the spot. My husband loves the bacon waffle.

We went in for breakfast and noticed the specials listed on the board. They had a $4.00 special that consisted of 2 eggs, pancakes, and bacon. It was good and for only $4.00 that is a deal that can't be beat! The server was very friendly and the service quick.

I came here on a vacation trip and the place is pretty much what you would expect from a Denny's type establishment. They do seem to have an extensive soda tap set-up so maybe the fountain drinks are more noteworthy. I ordered eggs and sausage and my wife had some waffles. Nothing horrible or outstanding about it. The service was... More

I've stopped and eaten here a dozen times when vacationing in Tahoe. The food is good, the servers are very friendly and the prices are reasonable. There's so many eateries as you make your way through Lake Tahoe it can be a crap shoot at times. The Red Hut Cafe is a safe bet for a good meal in a... More

Awesome! This is as good as it gets for a greasy spoon breakfast place! I hadn't been here in years until yesterday, and it's every bit as good as I remember. I love the pecan waffle. The food is made fresh and great quality. Happy parents and happy kids. Fast, friendly service.

There was a short wait, but we were willing to sit at the counter so we didn't have to wait as long as some others. The Jalapeño Bacon Bloody Mary, made with rice wine instead of vodka, is just one of the reasons we would go back. My husband ordered the waffle sandwich and it wasn't as heavy as we... More

Fantastic breakfast spot. We visited en route to Kirkwood. VERY large servings. My omelette was fantastic and were accommodating with no cheese. Spinach and mushroom only, it was delicious and healthy. Kids pancakes were amazing….huge servings. American coffee was good…I'm used to expresso and it was fine. Service was excellent, atmosphere was fun. A true local American diner. We plan... More

We were in Lake Tahoe for a quick getaway. We asked for a recommendation at the hotel for a breakfast venue. Lake Tahoe has few restaurants open for beakfast on a Monday morning so we headed to Red Hut Cafe. The location is very easy to find, very clean inside and out, & decorated as an old diner. We were... More
