This has become one of our favorite spots to stop for breakfast on our way through Tahoe. We had three orders of "The Usual" (excellent biscuit and gravy, coupled with two eggs and hash browns) along with hot fresh coffee. The 10 minute wait for a table was well worth the while.

Just had lunch with my wife and I at Red Hut Cafe. You better be hungry if you go there, so much food! My wife had the Turkey and cranberry sandwich and I had a bacon cheeseburger with a egg and it was amazing. No lie it had to be 5"-6" high, it had a steak knife stabbed in it... More

It could be better, it's definitely not like the original red hut. This red hut is geared towards the tourist, so they kick out the food fast. Unfortunately the quality of the food and the service takes a hit in this environment. The food is not bad, but it's not the same quality as the original hut. The service is... More

Excellent food quality, quantity and service. Very reasonable prices. Pancakes were fluffy and cooked to perfection we were hash browns and eggs.

Don't confuse the Original Red Hut with their newer restaurants. You'll want to enjoy the food and the ambiance at the Original Red Hut. With 3 orders, we had enough left over for almost another meal (which we ate at the trailhead). Don't miss this oldie but goodie!

We loved breakfast so much, we came back the next day for lunch! Breakfast was fantastic. We each ordered something different: blueberry French toast was simply the best!!! The rosti was delicious and a country breakfast was yummy. For lunch we had chicken fried steak, Thai chicken and rice soup and honey chicken. All were great as well.

We walked to Red Hut Cafe from our timeshare & it's about the fifth time we've visited. I enjoy the daily specials "the usual" is my favorite & my brother-in-law cracked up thinking I ate here regularly; I would if I lived in the area. Service is prompt & friendly & they can all describe the menu items very well.... More

Wife and i stopped in for breakfast after looking on TA for a top spot. It fit the bill well. Small inside but we came on a friday a.m. and sat right down. Good service, better food. My french toast was probably the best I've ever had. The wife got a nice looking waffle with strawberries and whip. No complaints,... More

Red Hut is a family owned restaurant that is casual, but good food. We had breakfast there this time and sat looking out over Lake Tahoe. We have eaten there many times for Breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as treats in the Soda Fountain.
