The wait can be burdensome...generally this place is jammin with hungry locals and visitors who have heard of this place and great food....it is somewhat '50-ish in decor and feel, with a small counter and leather booths & chairs...but pleasant and a bit loud....waiting in the lobby area on wood chairs is a bit uncomfortable. Next door is their sister... More

When we travel we find places we enjoy eating at. Red Hut made that happen. It's always busy which says a lot. The service is very good as is the food with a good selection. On the menu. Prices are in the breakfaat ballpark

Popped in around 1:50 p.m. jones-ing for breakfast. Treated like old friends even though we were right on the line for 'closing' time. Totally pleased with Bev's friendly service and the hot pancakes, bacon and eggs that the cook ( we learned his name is Oscar) got out to our table in very respectable time. Hot coffee, whats not to... More

There are 2 Red Huts in Tahoe. Only this one is open all day. We went here twice during our stay because we don't like fancy, expensive food. The first time we got one of their daily specials - Grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes and chopped asparagus. It was good. The topping on the chicken was a bit odd... More

My wife and I had eaten breakfast here on two successive mornings. I had the Texas french toast, which was scrumptious and a huge banana milkshake! My wife had eggs, but what was really cool was that she had jalapeno bacon, which was great! I ordered that the next morning, with my pancakes.

We love the Red Hut and eat breakfast there every day that we're in Tahoe. (We switch locations just for fun). Also can't say enough about the bacon waffle.

The Denver Omelette was very good. Bacon, eggs and pancakes were also good. Looking at the lake while eating was an added bonus. It was a bit of a wait for a table of 5, but the food was very tasty.

Breakfast isn't my meal and I wish I liked it better, the menu is extensive and anyone should be able to find something to their liking. The Red Hut Rosti was very good and the coffee was great. And how can anyone pass up jalapeño bacon?

Thank Jamie F
