The salad my wife had was good but my hamburger wasn't. It looked and tasted like frozen hamburger patty. Would recommend with caution.

We had the sweetest little server. The food was good. Maybe alittle over priced for what you got. The fish wasn't that great , just the frozen kind dumped into grease. The shrimp looked good. Next time, we'll try breakfast.

This was a good place for breakfast. Very popular (there is a wait) and if you're a waffle lover they have plenty to choose from. I love hash browns and they make them which is fantastic.

We enjoy Red Hut with each SLT visit. The food is great and the servers are genuine service-oriented servers.

Underscoring The Red Hut's popularity, we had to wait for 1 hour to get a breakfast table. Our delicious breakfasts were well-worth our wait! The breakfast menu has many choices. Each of our meals were perfectly made and delivered piping-hot to us. This place was packed during the entire time we were there. The Servers were outstanding and their swiftness... More

It's good old fashioned comfort food. They have a ton of selections - burgers, salads, ice cream, etc. It's pricey but not too bad - more people obviously more costly. A log cabin feel to it. A staple of the Lake Tahoe tourist. Pricey but good American food.

Went for breakfast on our last day in town and wasn't disappointed. Place was busy, but were seated quickly and staff was prompt and friendly. I ordered the pecan and Walnut waffle which was delicious. My wife got regular pancakes and had more than she could finish. Would definitely come back again.

Can't go wrong here for breakfast. We always make a stop here while in Tahoe. Can get busy so try to arrive before 8. We go to the one on hwy 207. Hasn't changed in 12 years. Love it.

We found this place 2 years ago when we went to Tahoe and ate there several times on our trip. Now that we are returning, we can't wait to go back to Red Hut! Great food, big portions, cheap.
