Fabulous little find. We get there by boat but you can drive, it is just a perfect place to spend the afternoon. Food is excellent, I recommend the fish tacos which are delicious, and they make a fabulous Bloody Mary!

Sunnyside is always amazing , even over July 4th busy time , service is great, customer service needs to be bottled and sold! What is their magic around customer service?

Try to get a room with a water view. Nice property...a little bit dated, but works for Tahoe. Gorgeous view and is located within walking distance of bike, SUP, and kayak rentals. A grocery store and 2 restaurants are also close if you don't want to eat in the hotel restaurant. Fantastic customer service!!!

Over the years, the food and beverage menu has reflected newer tastes. You can rely on freshness,quality and pretty good value for a lakeside venue. The young staff always are friendly and informed. It's a must stop in the summer. Convenient bike rack out front - easy boat docking steps away. Fish tacos, pork torta sandwich and chopped chicken salad... More

We have been here many times over the years. Sunnyside consistently has good food and drinks, and a great place to bring friends. Great atmosphere and laid back! We sat in the bar, it was pretty busy, and the service was average, that is why I gave 4 stars and not 5. We had to flag down our waiter to... More

Have been going to this restaurant for 30 years and it has always been good. We like to go by and have drinks and deep fried zucchini. The last couple of years we have only been there for lunch but it is always good.

We ordered elk, beef tenderloin, the Kobe burger and the kids go chicken fingers. The only item that wasn't massively over cooked was the elk. The tenderloin was sent back and the repeat order was over cooked even more. The service was also poor as drink orders were messed up and the bar server was uninterested. The view really is... More

Driving around the Lake looking for somewhere to stay for 3 nights, they only had 2 nights available, the room & view were so good we took them. We had partial lake view & balcony, we were nearer the road than we would have like, but it wasn't a problem. Room was great, balcony & fireplace, comfy bed. Breakfast was... More

Just finished a family dinner on the deck at Sunnyside Restaurant on the west shore of Lake Tahoe near Tahoe City. Tasty appetizers: clam and corn chowder, tomato Caprese salad and squid. Fish tacos, poblano chiles, salmon rice bowl and hamburger hit the spot. We passed on the Hula Pie. The kids enjoyed themselves and played at the lakeshore where... More
