We had a fine meal for six by the fireplace. The service was excellent and the Grilled meat beautifully prepared. The Lamb special was very good as well as the sea bass. The duck breast special was aa bit overcooked for my tastes, but still...tasty and finished. The calamari was share and very good. I liked the selection and recommendations of the wine list, although many were smaller Western vineyards that were great to try. The Canadian ice wine was a nice treat to find for dessert. A 20% service charge was automatic. We look forward to trying again when the mountain opens or next season.More

Nice location, good variety of menu choices. Excellent presentation. I had chicken roulade and my wife sea bass. Both excellent. The wine list is extensive but expensive. We brought our own bottle. The corkage fee is high at $25. Most in the area are $20....Cozy by the fireplace too.More

The BEST meal we’ve ever had in Squaw Valley and we’ve been coming here for 18 years. Excellent t food (better than Plumpjack by a mile) and wonderful service. Super cozy friendly atmosphere. We met the proprietor when we checked in and he made us...(and all of his guests) feel like a VIP. We will definitely come back!!!More

Graham’s Restaurant is like discovering a precious gem in a stream. It’s uniqueness begins with the feeling you get as you enter. It’s like visiting a relative or other loved one, who has an upscale home tucked away in the mountains. You immediately feel welcomed...and blown away by the art on the walls, images of Squaw Valley and other limited editions by Gallery Keoki. White linens are draped over the tables, people are chatting and laughing and the vibe is just right. But what makes Graham’s over-the-top special isn’t just the vibe, the artwork, the laughter, the delicious food or overall ambiance, it’s the man himself - Graham. You can’t get by Graham without a cheery and warm greeting. Graham knows everyone and everyone seems to know him. If Graham doesn’t know you yet, he will after your first visit. He welcomes me by name every time I step in. For these reasons and many more, you won’t find a better restaurant in Squaw Valley.More

We were 10 couples on a retreat. Graham’s is a charming spot for dinner and is in the oldest building in Squaw Valley. Very charming. The food was exceptional as was the service. You can bring your own wine and they will charge a corkage...fee. Desserts were delicious. Comprehensive wine list. The free shuttle from Squaw Creak Resort will drop you off and pick you up.More

My wife and I are in Squaw Valley for a wedding. Tonight, we had dinner at Graham’s. It was just what we needed. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and quiet. The service was outstanding. They have a very complete wine list. We ordered a Cesar...Salad and the baked asparagus appetizer. They were perfectly prepared. For our entrees, we had the duck and the bison ribeye. Both were excellent. This is a very good place for an elegant dinner.More

This restaurant was very highly rated, so it was surprising to me that we got a reservation so easily. After our meal, I am not surprised about the ease of availability. My halibut was WAY over cooked. My husband’s salmon was not properly filleted. The...owner was super sweet and personable, but our waiter was completely apathetic to our desires. He did not explain the sides with our entrees and we ended up with flavorless jasmine rice. Our appetizer of calamari was drenched in lemon juice and the flavors were not balanced. The bread was not made in house and the artichoke spread served with it was ice cold. Overall we had a really poor experience for what we thought would be an exceptional meal.More

Four of us dined for a celebratory dinner last Saturday night. Alisa was our server and did a fantastic job accommodating us. We ordered almost every single appetizer from the menu. They were all superb! My favorites were the melt-in-you-mouth scallops with a leek cream...sauce, the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus with a crispy parmesean crunch, and the loaded seafood stew. We also tried the king crab legs, the oysters, and a caesar salad. We were almost too full for an entree, but managed to share a medium-rare steak with extra mashed potatoes and veggies (thank you, Alisa!). And since it was a birthday we had to try the apple tarte with vanilla ice cream and carmel sauce. Graham's is always a highlight on each trip to Squaw Valley and they made this celebration very special.More

We decided to visit Grahams our second night at Squaw. Graham met us upon entry and was very chatty and gracious. Food and service were excellent and we had a delightful time. Would return another time.

Locals abound, including ski legends, and the owner, a rare gem, introduce yourself. Had the duck breast drizzled with honey. Wine list is brief but focused with reasonable bottle prices, found a great deal in a Tablott Pinot.
