We've been going to RH for 30 years; but always for breakfast. But we happened on RH for dinner when we wanted some "comfort" food. What a great surprise. It's only served at the new location on Ski Run & 50. The specials were awesome....More

Good food as in our past visits in prior years. Worth the wait! Pecan waffle excellent. The sausage patties here with eggs and toast make a great breakfast.

Small and quaint breakfast spot. Menu was custom which I liked and gave it a homey feel. Nothing too elegant just simple decor and simple meals. Still a good place to grab breakfast!

We go here for breakfast whenever we are in Tahoe. The prices are very reasonable. This is a localized place to eat at. Breakfast / Lunch and a fun Soda Fountain Ice Cream Parlor all in one.
