Right off the Dutch Flat exit of highway 80, 1 hour south of Reno, 30 minutes north of Auburn. This family owned and operated restaurant is a true gem! We discovered it 6 years ago and quickly discovered why this place is a local favorite! The menu is amazing with something for everyone. Sometimes I just want a burger but... More

I researched places of interest on the way to Truckee and came across Dutch Flat and the Monte Vista Inn. My wife and I had a wonderful meal with great service. I suggest a side trip a few miles away to Dutch Flat. Its history dates back to the gold rush and early railroad days, and there are a few... More

I live closer to Sacramento and had always headed towards the city when dining. A friend recommended this place, so we checked it out. It's a fun play in which to eat and the food is of excellent quality, too! I've eaten here many times now, and have never been disappointed!

We have been going to Monte Vista Inn for many years and that is because of the great service and excellent food. They treat you like family. What I like the most is how well they treat my parents. They always great them like family.

This is a great out-of-the-way place with a rustic atmosphere and great food. The regular menu is terrific, but the specials are, for me, the real draw. Especially when they have bison short ribs -- Yum! Sides are always cooked just right, and the dessert tray/pie selection is not to be believed. It's fun for a special occasion, too.

We took a family gathering to dinner at the Inn on a Saturday night which is risky at best. But our service was excellent and there's enough space between tables that we weren't sharing our conversation with the other guests. The old log structure has seen many years but still remains elegant. The owners pay attention to the small details... More

Service was OK except we we're never asked for a drink order so we had water. The food was not worth the wait. Overcooked and excessive sauce. I think its a local hangout in the lounge bar area. Keep going 10 miles south if you have the time.

Do yourself a favor and take 80 east for a short but lovely drive to Dutch Flat and Monte Vista Inn. Getting takeout today and as usual, warm and friendly staff and owners with a fire in fireplace. Oh yeah. Food is great as always. :)

From the rustic look both inside and out to a plate of home grown heirloom tomatoes with fresh mozzarella cheese, this place has definately got it going on in the right direction. Easy Hwy 80 access, friendly, warm owners and wait people, interesting menu with great prices. Try it ......you will like it!

The food here is good and good variety on the menu.The service was beyond bad.Thank God the busboy was around and saw to it that we were looked after because the waiter sure didn't.It is hard to believe anyone could be that bad.THis place has good food and a great atmosphere but I would have to say go somewhere else.
