Met our Truckee local friends here for lunch. I remembered eating here 25 years ago but think it was something different then. Good beers on tap with very knowledgeable barkeeps. We waited in the bar briefly for an outside table. Very friendly and personable waitstaff; good sense of humor! We had great fresh, local salad greens salad and taro root... More

My husband, the gourmet cook, said he couldn't stop eating the truffle fries. My veggie burger didn't really hold its shape but it was so yummy I didn't care. Fast service and free refills on iced tea. I understand there is jazz at night but we were there for lunch.

Ate there last night at Truckee Thursdays. Fun night where the whole downtown area turns into one big party. Lucky for us we grabbed an early seat outside without a reservation, near a couple of wonderful singers who were playing for the street party. Food and service were excellent! We both ordered the salmon with heirloom beans and corn. Would... More

We chose Moody's for lunch on a rainy Tuesday around noon. We entered and found the host podium in the middle of the bar area. The host said it would be 15 minutes for a table, but we were seated much faster than that. The vegetarian options BLEW MY MIND. I started with the tomato soup en croute. The waitress... More

We like Moody's and for the most part get fantastic meals and service. The Tomato salad w/Burrata was great but the calamari was a bit soggy with grease. Service was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere and most of the food but an entree was also lacking. Ribeye very good, but hanager steak was just ok and the sauce was... More

We stopped in here for lunch while staying at The Hotel Truckee, it’s in the same building. We saw that they had a good Zagat rating and thought it would be nice to try. It was definitely a good choice. We had a salad and the fish sandwich. Both were very good and the presentation of the salad was beautiful.... More

Started with a bunch of shared apps = Highly Recommended: The Truffle Deviled Eggs, Heirloom Tomato salad w/Burrata, and beef carpacio. For dinner, we went all over the menu: i had the ribeye (awesome), my wife had the burger (great) and our friends had the salmon and one... More

Moody's is a fun hip place to dine. The menu is good with something for everyone, they have a GREAT hand made burger, a nice selection of appetizers and elegant entrees. The cocktails are well balanced and they have a nice selection of wines by the glass. Best of all is the decor and the talented musicians they bring in.... More

7 of us sat at the bar...the bartender was great, the cocktails were superb. The food was creative and yummy. I had Moody's Mule. The muddled cherries were delish. We shared a beet salad, an ahi poke, ad a tomato salad with burrata. Everything was really tasty and fresh.
