The Lodge is consistently delicious. In reading other reviews I noticed the only real criticism was variety in the menu. I have ordered the wild halibut three times in the last 6 months each time the preparation was very different and all were delicious. The pasta special had been different as well. The filet is always perfect. The Lodge truly... More

The filet was done to perfection with a demi glaze sauce. Others at our table had a skirt steak with a special demi sauce, mac and cheese with gruyere and parmesan, a rib eye steak. This was a special deal which was a round of golf at Tahoe Donner Golf Course, and then $20 off for the dinner...great buy and... More

Went to The Lodge for dinner. Great food, very nice service, and generous helpings. Not a pretentious place at all -- Shorts and t-shirts will do, which is great at a "Tourist" spot.

The Lodge is an amazing restaurant. The location is beautiful and the service is outstanding. I had the halibut off the daily menu. It was as good as any fresh fish in Hawaii or San Francisco. It is served as a complete meal, garlic mash potatoes and asparagus. The salads are large enough to share. I have tried most of... More

It was my first time and it will not be the last one. We had the halibut fish and it was out of this world. We also had the burger and the Ceasar salad they all were very good. Service was excellent.

My husband and I have been coming to the Lodge for years and have seen it go through lots of changes....good and bad. Judging from last night's dining experience they have definitely pulled it all together! The service was friendly, efficient and relaxed. Our meals were beyond wonderful and some of the best restaurant meals we have had in awhile.... More

We visited the lodge on March 13. As always it was a great experience. I usually get the burger but changed it up this time to the the short ribs. Smart move as they were the best I have ever had. Our waiter, Peter was top notch. The wife got the mac and cheese and it was also very good.... More

You will never stumble on this restaurant unless you are staying in Tahoe Donner but it is worth making the detour from down town Truckee. The menu is small but everything is well done, stand outs are the short ribs, turkey meat loaf, and the spinach salad. Daily specials such as fresh pappardelle or a nice salmon on mashed potato...
