Had Easter Sunday Brunch and it was very good. The service is excellent and very attentive. The carved meet station was delicious along with a lot of the other buffet items. The only disappointment is that they have removed their omelette station over the past couple of Brunches that I have been to and it's not only missed by me,... More

Almost upscale lakeside dining on West Shore Lake Tahoe ... great views! The views from most parts of the restaurant are option and the modern American fare was quite nice, but pricey.

I love outdoor restaurants, especially during perfect weather conditions. I was able to visit Sunny side in September when it was not too cold. It was a lovely experience. The ambience, service and the food was simply great. We had burgers and fried zucchini. I would definitely visit again if possible. A must do when in Lake Tahoe.

We went here to celebrate our son's 10th birthday after skiing at Homewood. The hangar steak dish was delicious! The kids menus were great and a large portion of food. The server was so friendly and they brought out a Hula Pie dessert, with a candle, for our son's birthday. It was an incredible view (make a reservation before the... More

Enjoyed a very nice dinner at Sunnyside. Both entrees we had - brick pressed half chicken and fish tacos - were well prepared and lots of flavour. I enjoyed the smoked carrots. Unusual. Also a good choice of craft beers. And you can't top the view from the deck or a window seat.

We live at Squaw, and always find ourselves gravitating over to Sunnyside. It's a gorgeous small boutique hotel resembling a large estate on the lake. The interior is warm and inviting in a high mountain way, but the action is out under the sea of umbrellas out on the large deck! The food is good, and the drinks are better.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals. On a busy Friday night, we were seated, without reservations, in the restaurant as the bar area was quite busy. The food, wine, atmosphere, everything was terrific. Wished we lived near here as this would be a place we would return to again and again.

Made a reservation here for a nice Valentine's Day dinner. I picked Sunnyside for the view but when we arrived for dinner they were getting ready for a private party in the main dining room, so they stuck us in a side dining room where the view was blocked by snow banks. I made the reservation earlier that morning and... More

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.
