First time at this restaurant, but for sure you'll be visiting again. The food is just great, the service is excellent, up to the smallest of details. I love the baked bread and butter, the best in town for sure. Also the view is spectacular,...More

Great salad, Easy comfortable atmosphere, looking forward to summer on their deck. I can't believe I have to have more words to complete my review.

Was looking for a late lunch and remembered my favorite Tahoe pitch and putt restaurant is open year round. Great staff...perfect Cobb salad. We didn't try anything extravagant, but sometimes just the basics hit the spot perfectly.

This is the cafe attached to a small golf course. Our exceptions were low, and this well exceeded our expectations. Club, pastrami, two salads...all solid. I will go out of my way for lunch (same with Sunnyside). Service great too.
