i recommend this place OVER Jake's at the Lake ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. The food was great!! I had Char Grilled Chicken, my boyfriend had the Rib Eye. The service was timely, the drinks and the atmosphere I preferred much more as well. Check out the 19 year collection of lamps, lights displayed.

Reasonably priced excellent steak dinner and immediate seating was just what we needed after a long day in the snow. The atmosphere was excellent and service was very good providing a great value in dining especially for this area. I would recommend strongly and plan to go back next time in the area.

We were staying in Tahoe Vista while skiing for the weekend. Our firsts night we ate at Old Range. It has a nice atmosphere with a good selection of wines and beers. We were there before 6pm so we each got the "early bird" special which included the salad and glass of wine (which we never got). The prime rib... More

I have been visiting the Steakhouse for a few years now. It's fantastic! The service is great and the food is the freshest ever! Yes, a tad pricy but what a treat. The quality of what you order is beyond anything I have been too. The owner, he is usually behind the bar has a good thing going! I believe... More

Great way to step back in time & get into the rustic, comfortable vibe that is Tahoe. Arrived about 4:30 to catch the sunset from the beach & enjoy the early bird specials. The filet didn't seem like a filet but okay; salads were yummy; Gnocchi portion was huge. View wonderful!

This place has all the requirements of a good steakhouse - good bar, large portions, meat & mash potatoes. However, it also has lovely fish, crisp vegetables, and non-traditional desserts (home made peppermint ice-cream!). The ambiance has the same appeal - some tradition (booth seating) but fabulously refreshing and eclectic charm with lighting from multiple periods. The few is great... More

I read some of the other reviews. Yes, it is rustic and yes it is old school dark wood inside but I think that is what makes the place charming. The booths and tables are fairly well situated so that you nearly all get a view of the lake out the main window. The view is an unexpected surprise. Service... More

Love the comfy booths, old rustic decor,and great views of the lake! Rib eye was awesome and my friend had the ribs - awesome as well!! Little pricey but unlike other places around the lake you get large portions that can easily be split!
