We visited twice and both times loved every dish we ordered. The food is delicious and portions are generous. We love coffee so it was a plus when they offered more without us asking. If you are ready for a big, classic breakfast look no further. This is your place. You won't be disappointed.

We had about a 15 minute wait on a Thursday late morning. The restaurant is clean; staff was great; food was good. I had the hash brown casserole with two eggs which was a large portion; good; and filling!

We ordered takeout from RHC several times during our stay at the Alder Inn. It was excellent food and super convenient to take on the road with us for our daily adventures.

We just wanted a cup of coffee and to relax in a nice atmosphere, well it didn't happen here. Walked in and the music was so loud and horrible that we just turned around and walked out. Not a great place.

Stayed in South Lake Tahoe and ate at the Red Hut twice for breakfast. Had a traditional American breakfast and the blueberry bread was delicious. Great service, even though they were busy. Flew out of Reno, and ate at a Red Hut for lunch and had a YUMMY malt. Nothing fancy, but the food is good and reasonably priced.

Several locations in the Tahoe area opened for breakfast and lunch only. This one also serves dinner. We ate breakfast anyway because it sounded good and it really was good. Nice, reasonably priced cafe style restaurant with good service and good food.

Apparently, there are three cafes in Lake Tahoe named The Red Hut. We had previously been to the one located on Kingsbury Hwy. It is much smaller and the wait times can be an issue. This one was located just a few blocks from the hotel were were staying in and has a slightly larger seating capacity, but is does... More

Went here for breakfast upon recommendation from our hotel. Place was packed with a 20-30 minute wait for groups of 4 or more. Since we were just 2, we were seated pretty quickly. Nice menu options, huge portions. It's a bit noisy.

We had an early lunch/brunch, and the burger was good, the turkey club as expected. Good thick fries. Atmosphere is fun, and much like a ski lift with chairs around the diner.
