The best thing we had was the daily special which was fetuccini Alfredo. The soup on the salad bar was very bland. The salad bar was ok but very picked over and the veggies seemed like they had been out a long time. The bread just didn't taste fresh and the cheese bread tasted like it had ground up cheeze-its...

We had a large party and the wait staff was very patient with us. Everyone raved about their dinner and since we were all starving we were happy to take a trip to the salad bar.

Although this place looks like it could do with a facelift, the food is great, portions are huge, neither of us could finish our meals, and the service is friendly. Good value, nice atmosphere, worth a try if you are in the area.

This restuarant is very much a locals place as well as tourist. We were in Lake Tahoe to see the Eagles. We did not want to go to a tready tourist trap(Cabo Wabo), so on the suggestion from the hotel mmanager we made our way to the restuarant. The people are very friendly and the food excellent.

Great food! Great atmosphere! Our server was a bit cold bordering on rude, but we saw other servers who were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back!

Excellent salad bar. Fresh greens and constantly refilled. Prices are reasonable and quality of food is high. Our waitress was very good. She made some excellent recommendations for our main courses. My wife had chicken picata and I had the meat lasagna. Both portions were large enough to take leftovers home for lunch or a snack.
