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.

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

Our hotel was right near the restaurant so we thought we'd check it out. The place was packed but they found us a spot at the counter. It was fun watching the cooks through the service window. The food was great and huge portions. be sure to come hungry.

We had the pancakes, hash browns, eggs, bacon, biscuits/gravy, and sausage. All had great taste. Tasted like my grandma cooked it! Highly recommend for breakfast food.

They were close to the hotel we were staying at. We went for lunch. I had the chicken and waffles. I'm very picky about waffles and theirs was pretty good, not as brown and crispy as a like but it had a good texture. Served with real whipped butter and maple syrup. The chicken were actually chicken fingers which was... More

This is a great place to eat when you want to get away from the hotels. The food was tasty, (a little pricey, but then it is South Lake Tahoe). Great Spot!

This is an interesting place with a very unusual menu. I had waffles & brisket for dinner. Not a big fan. I love brisket, but this brisket was overcooked and not tender as I expect brisket to be. Okay I guess, but after the meal was done I had wished I would have tried someplace else.
