Expensive and quality is missing. Honored our reservation time with friendly service. $50 steaks were mediocre. Don't waste your money

I've had lunch here a few times - usually meeting a girlfriend and sitting outside. I've had dinner a couple of times, too, and everything is really good. I love their wood-fired pizzas that always have fresh, seasonal, interesting toppings. They have a killer ahi poke, too, and a fantastic wine list. Also, on the weekends they have some pretty...

Hot day and no air conditioning. Doors and windows were open, but still pretty warm inside the restaurant. We felt too tired and hot to walk elsewhere, so we ate there anyway. Their brag is they grind their own meat for the burgers and bake their own buns. Burger came with lettuce, tomato, and pickle but no condiments.

Not a lot of great restaurants in Truckee and Moody's is reliable and good. All food in the mountains is a bit price but good service and interesting menu makes up for a bit pricey meal.

We happened upon Moody's on a Truckee Thursday night, so they were pretty packed, but because we didn't want a patio seat they were able to seat us. Great luck! The food was excellent - the ahi tuna appetizer, tomato and burrata special, and the fried chicken roulade(?) were fantastic. The cocktails were very good, too, with high quality ingredients....

We had lunch (the menu is very restricted). The chicken sandwich were great but the caesar salad is a joke.

In the bottom of our hotel for the night, Moody's did not disappoint. Vegetables, quinoa, wine, dessert were amazing. Almost drove back from Tahoe just to eat here.

Burger was incredible- high quality meat- so tender. I loved the chicken pizza too and the beet salad was a delight to even just look at. Nice spot right in Truckee on the intersection but a dog friendly patio and superb cocktail list. I highly suggest stopping in for an early dinner. Service was good, but really- this was a... More

We dined with friends who have been here several times before. The food was delicious, hearty portions, excellent service, and a fun atmosphere. The restaurant can get very busy and loud, especially the inner bar area; if possible, request a table in the patio area at the back of the restaurant - quieter and more personal.

Went to Moody's for our anniversary dinner. We had a bad experience there a couple of years ago, but decided to give them another chance. Big mistake! Started bad when I had to return my mixed drink. The place was hot, no air conditioning and the waiters were running around, but still had bad service. The starters were very good,... More
