I would give Red Hut decent points for service. The food was acceptable, the prices were what could be expected at Appleby's, but the food was better. The menu was, however, very limited. I might go back for breakfast, but South Lake Tahoe has much better choices for lunch.

I thought the reviews were overrated! It was neat with cool history/ambiance but nothing amazing. The food was good but nothing unique.

Apparently, the Red Hut breakfast restaurant has been an Icon in the Lake Tahoe area for many years. It has opened two additional restaurants to the original, which was very small to begin with. Nonetheless, if you go for breakfast, you are probably going to wait for an open table anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, unless you are willing to eat at the bar. They have a $5.99 breakfast special that includes 2 eggs, choice of meat, biscuits and gravy, hash browns/grits. A very hearty meal especially if you are off to a long day of skiing in the winter. Of course there are many other breakfast and lunch specials and you can have breakfast any time of the day. As with many Icons, the original place is the most cherished, and the newer ones are much larger and modern ( not as endearing). At any rate good food, fast and pleasant service -good recommendations for all.

This was my second visit to this restaurant on Highway 50 and Ski Run Blvd. This newer location is very clean and well run. They are certainly a very good place to go for breakfast! The servings are plentiful and there are so many choices! The staff is friendly and accommodating. And they have a soda fountain with old fashioned milk shakes and ice cream sodas!! Hard to find and properly made! I have not eaten lunch there but the burgers I saw go by looked great!
