The first place I wanted to eat when we returned to Tahoe was the Red Hut. I seriously craved it for 2 years! Breakfast is delicious and worth the wait. This is the original location and it's very small. Do not expect to have a large group seated together since theres a counter and booths are small 4 seaters. In... More

Food was great. My husband ordered the coconut shrimp and loved it! Customer service in the cafe was spot on. Young man working in the soda shoppe however, may need some more training with helping those first in line instead of jumping to different people. My husband and I had been waiting patiently for him to finish with the customers... More

This restaurant is located right on the "main drag". It occupies the corner spot of a shopping center with plenty of parking off street. This is actually 2 different eateries under one roof - one a cafe, the other an old fashioned soda fountain (ice cream) place. There are a few items from the soda fountain that can be ordered...

We tried out this place because this was featured in the tv show, Man vs. Food. The place was nice and it tends to be full. The wait is worth, though. The servings are generous and the food does not disappoint. We went there for brunch and their pancakes are to die for!!! We'll make sure to drop by again... More

We went to the red Hut at Kingsbury. Not the original at Statelineline. We were so excited to see Chicken and waffles on the menu. And bitterly disappointed to get frozen chicken tenders on our plate! Gross!

Not really worth the wait. Undercooked food, very average. Ok atmosphere. Commercial. Not high quality ingredients.

We breakfasted with a group. Wait time was 50 min. This place is popular. It's nothing spectacular. Just decent, basic food. I didn't dislike, but I didn't think it was anything special either.

My brothers & I stopped in here during our visit to South Lake Tahoe. Seems as if this place is known for its awesome breakfast, but we were here for lunch and our meals were pretty darn good! My patty melt was cooked just right, and my brothers' orders also came quickly & were heartily enjoyed! Good stuff!

After searching for a place to eat with a view of the Lake, I found the Red Hut Café. There are few reasonably priced restaurants in South Lake Tahoe and only a couple with a view of the Lake. We hit the jackpot with the Red Hut. Reasonably priced food. Very generous portions and a server named Deb who couldn't... More

This restaurant was our breakfast find and we had 3 days of wonderful breakfasts here! Fresh food, cooked to perfection, and a really sweet atmosphere to be at.
