Delightful diner-style cafe with a very retro feel to it. There are about 6 or 7 counter stools and about 6 or 7 tables, so think "small and cozy." You walk in the door and the staff is quick to greet you. Service was top notch and the food was down-home good. The wait staff was attentive-- quick to notice... More

We really enjoyed eating at the Red Hut Café. The experience was great, the staff greeted us immediately.

My husband had... More

Good old American comfort food. Just remember you are in tourism area and in the mountains and the prices reflect that but the quality was good. We had a good lunch followed up by some good old ice cream sundaes...yum!!! It was recommendation from the hotel and it did not disappoint.

We love eating at the Red Hut because it is a Tahoe original! It's a small restaurant with lots of nostalgic decor from the early days of the area. The food is plentiful, delicious and well priced. Make sure you get, "the usual". The biscuits and gravy are fabulous! The service is always excellent. On a weekend morning, be prepared... More

I love eating the local places in town! This place had the best Belgium waffles! It was recommended to me by the Days Inn. I would definately eat here the next time I come to Tahoe!

Red hut has great food! I always go there for breakfast. The location is downtown and easy to access but the wait can be long. WORTH IT

Can't go wrong with Red Hut for any meal. Prices are good, food is awesome, service is impeccable, and their coffee is very good. Go! This is one of those places I call "satisfaction guaranteed".

Just what you would want in a breakfast joint. Quick, great menu and fun service. Huge breakfast menu but I went for a custom breakfast sandwich that was awesome. Coffee was hot, the servers were all super nice and the wait was zero, so this was perfect!
