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.

Everyone we come to Tahoe we try a new breakfast place based on reviews but this is gonna be problem because I think we cannot try another one again! 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.

After an early photo shoot of Lake Tahoe that started at 5:00 on a bone chilling morning, it was decided we'd go to the Red Hut for breakfast...What a great idea..The food was delicious, the wait staff friendly and courteous, the prices good..Be mindful when you go, there will be a wait...Ours was about 45 minutes..This is not a big...

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

Oh My Gosh! Based on our experience, I don't see how anyone could give this place a positive review. The only positive was that the 35 minute wait we were told about was pretty accurate. This was a crowded noisy place. My bride ordered an omelet made with egg whites. I ordered the same omelet with regular eggs. Well, the... More
