Old fashioned cafe type restaurant, food is plentiful and tasty. Obviously a popular spot with locals and tourists as our family party of 8 had to wait 40 minutes on a Wednesday morning for seating. The service was prompt and the food came quickly once we were seated.

We came here early for breakfast as my husband wanted to go to an old-time diner type place. This fit the bill perfectly. Got a table immediately. Every person we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. The portions were huge and the food was great. Loved it! We will be back!

My family loves breakfast, and upon reading the great reviews for this place, I knew we had to give it a try. We arrived later than I'd hoped and sure enough it was already quite busy. We were told at least an hour and 10 minute wait. It ended up being a bit less than that, but not by much!... More

The Red Hut original cafe is famous for their waffles however everything we saw was sumptuous. They are open for breakfast and lunch, we had breakfast it was the traditional waffles, mouthwatering! The servers were very attentive and friendly, we found our new favorite breakfast spot.

We came first for breakfast on a recommendation from a friend. Went with the whole family and everyone was satisfied. Food is great and the staff was always friendly. It does get packed so depending on the size of your group you may wait around a bit because it is not a huge place, but well worth the wait. Coffee... More

You have to eat breakfast at the Red Hut, We visited two of them in Tahoe, and had great breakfasts each time. Fast, friendly service too.

This is a little hole-in-the-wall kind of place that has obviously been around for quite some time. I had the pecan waffle (homemade) with a side of jalapeño bacon,, yum! Very busy place so be prepared to wait for a bit. Great service. Would definitely eat here again. The only negative I have to add is I observed a waiter... More

Large group descended on the Red Hut on Sunday morning. Fortunately for us, the group are all early risers. We walked from our hotel to this place for breakfast. (WE had 13 in our party- wedding guests and family). The selection for breakfast is great; even our vegan friends were able to satisfy their needs. The wait staff was quick,... More

This is a good place for breakfast. Compared to many tahoe breakfast places, this place is clean and service is fast. I ordered french toast but I don't care for syrup or jam. I asked for applesauce and it was brought out quickly even though it wasn't on the menu.
