This place was packed for good reason. Their Moscow Mule is pretty much worth dying in battle for. Major babes on the staff. Fantastic food. One of the few places seemingly able step up the customer service proportional to whatever is being thrown their way. Awesome place, would love to return next trip through. Good location, parking easy. Has a... More

Our family needed a restaurant close to Northstar for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Our headcount was 40 guests. After visiting several venues in Truckee, North Star and Incline Village, we felt Moody's best fit the bill. They have a private room off to the side called the Parlor which seats up to 50. They accommodated all of our requests regarding... More

My partner and I went to Truckee for the weekend. We meant up with another couple and the suggested Moody's. I am glad they did, the food and drinks were great! The icing on the cake was the band started setting up as we were sitting down. The lead singer was this young raspy blues singer. They had a bass,... More

Moody's is a pleasant surprise! There was a small hiccup with our reservation for 9 people which was made in error for the wrong day. They fixed it up and managed to get us table quickly, which is to be commended! It is all about service recovery! The appetizers in particular we have enjoyed. I love the Ahi Poke -... More

A fun atmosphere, livelier in the bar, quieter in the back. Always choices that sound good and are good. Reliable.

Took the family for lunch. Service was very slow. We couldn't even find the waiter when we wanted our check. The menu was limited and it was difficult for my teenagers to find something they would like. They don't eat kids-menu food, but the regular menu had ingredients that were too gourmet for them. I ordered the French onion soup... More

My husband and I were looking for brunch, but opted for a couple of delicious sandwiches instead. The chicken sandwich was served warm on their homemade bun with fresh guacamole. My husband thought it was good, but it paled in comparison to the divine lamb sandwich. Which was also served warm. I would make a trip back just to order... More

This had been "the" restaurant to dine in Truckee, then the service, the food and the value all vanished. But the mojo has returned and its better than ever. The chef's vision and execution show brilliantly in the food. Depth, breadth and unusual and wonderful layers of different tastes distinguish Moody's from the standard and mundane faire found elsewhere. Foodies... More

We were pleasantly surprised. Really great service, some nice variations in the menu and great food. We dropped in for just appetizers and a drink and were surprised by a great deconstructed avocado and beet salad and a few other appetizers. We will be back to try some entrees.
