Always good for breakfast

This restaurant has been here for years. Good food and service. Megan served us. Large portions and a fair price. Open until 2 PM.

The food was pretty disgusting. They over buttered the toast, yes the omletes were pretty fill but they were disgusting and weren't cooked all the way through. The biscuits and home fries were dry with no flavor. Not happy about spending 44 dollars plates we did not enjoy.

I always eat at Heidi's when I am in Tahoe. Had the most delicious veggie omelette. Service was friendly and quick to get orders out

The most tasty pancakes we ever tasted. We now know why they are called 'fluffy'. Servings come with 'fresh' fruit. You may have to wait on the weekend, but it's worth it!

I've wanted to eat here for years. Cute place, bigger than it looks. People are friendly, kitchen was a bit slow, but it was Sunday @ 11 am and pretty busy. Breakfast for 4 was 75 bucks without the tip, so a little high for breakfast. The food was good, service ok. Probably won't go back soon. Interior decor is... More

While I'm glad your food was tasty, I'm sorry to hear your service was a little on the slower side. Given that you had been wanting to try us out for years, it's disappointing that we didn't knock it out of the park. Even though Sunday at 11 in our busiest hour of the week we still aim to get...

Coffee refills plentiful and nice orange juice all included in price.... More

After reviewing a few locations thru Tripadvisor we decide to try this place. Located in the main road of South Lake Tahoe was easy to find. The waitress received us with a big smile. They offered us drinks and coffee. My coffee was fine and they kept filling the cup, cool. I just missed the brown raw sugar on the... More

We enjoyed Breakfast at the Red Hut. The breakfast was good. It is a locally owned restaurant, and is full of Tahoe tradition. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating.
