Pretty good little spot

Cute little place. The menu is limited at the small location we ate at, so it was kind of disappointing to order a shake which was on the menu and be told that it is only available at their other location. But the food was good and reasonably priced.

We always hit the Red Hut at least 1 to 2 times while we are in Tahoe! Always has and always will be a favorite place for breakfast which is my favorite meal of the day!

Delicious Food! We ate at the location on Ski Run, cool decor, nice staff! It was a Saturday morning and crowded, but we had a group of 2 so we opted to sit at the counter which was only about a 10 minute wait. We ordered the "Country Scram" special (biscuits, eggs, gravy, sausage) and French Toast with Egg and... More

Food was really great but the place is always packed so it's about 20-30 to be seated. The staff wasn't very friendly and they forgot our sides after reminding them a few times then they arrived at the end of the meal. They seem to be about average for price, maybe a little more but not much. But the meal... More

The wait staff there was very caring and quick, I came by myself and they made sure I had a paper to read. The coffee was hot and it kept coming. I got the biscuits and gravy and the gravy was well seasoned and the biscuits were fluffy. I would go back!

Go to the Red Hut. Three trips on our recent Lake Tahoe visit. We had ice cream one evening and two breakfasts.Sat at counter as it was busy but food was great. Pancakes,omelettes, eggs, or waffles all get 5 stars. Friendly waitstaff,attentive but not bothersome. You will not go wrong
