This is a favorite Sunday lunch venue for us. We love the food specials offered in the bar/patio area. Joe's steak is among the best ever, the flavor is totally different from offerings by traditional steak houses. Service always excellent and the cheesecake is the bomb!

Pretty good food. A little pricey for lunch but we had a gift card. We had a coupon for a free appetizer and we loved our choice of the Railroad Camp Shrimp. I could've just ate that. We all had something different. Each was a hit or miss. We have a bit left on the gift card so we might... More

Nice restaurant but very crowded. Excellent food and beers. Staff is friendly and very professional. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. Will recommend this place to anyone who likes good food and who doesn't care about the crowd and the noise.

While this is chain restaurant it does not seem so when you are there. They do a good job on steaks and chops, salads are good as well. Large portions--you will not leave hungry.

When you go to a steak house you know your going to eat well and Tahoe's is no exception. Great design and great food. The Bakersfield location offers outdoor seating as well as interior. Menu choices are abundant and you're sure to find something to enjoy.

I've not had a bad experience in all the years I've been going there. I love their Railroad Camp Shrimp. My wife loves the Tahoe Joe's steak . Often combine the two, but I mostly have the shrimp. The rolls they serve are also excellent.
