Description: Sunnyside's spectacular location on the pristine West Shore makes it the place to be in Lake Tahoe. Panoramic views of the lake and mountains beyond abound from nearly every table and during the summer, guests can also enjoy alfresco dining on Lake Tahoe's largest outdoor deck. The Lakeside Dining Room features new American cooking - fresh, vibrant presentations of American classics with a focus on premium seafood and steaks. The award winning wine list has been carefully selected to complement the menu and offers a wide variety of wines including some rare & limited offerings. Our Mountain Grill offers a more casual menu and is seated on a walk-in basis only. Sunnyside is also a classic lakefront lodge with guest accommodations overlooking Lake Tahoe. The 23 mountain inspired lodge rooms are inviting places to sink into after the day's activities.

“Outstanding Ambience”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great food and views here, even though it gets cold if you are seated by the windows. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly, and the food was great. Definitely a good place near Tahoe City and Squaw.

“beautiful restaurant on the lake”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

great views during the day/early evening. Food is varied and excellent. Nice bar scene. I had the scallops which were incredible - a bit on the salty side but still delicious. Many choices - beef, pasta, lots of seafood options, and even vegetarian.

“Sunnyside Restaurant - GREAT!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

My husband and I had dinner here last night... and it was so good we're eating here again tonight. We ate at the bar and had a wonderful meal, our server/bartender Sean was great, and the view of the lake is beautiful.
