The decor in this place is reminiscent of a 1950's bar and restaurant. The food was excellent and the service outstanding.

This was one of the best meals we had during a recent holiday in California. The atmosphere was busy and loud and everyone seemed to be enjoying their evening. This is everything you imagine an American steakhouse to be and I should imagine very cosy in the winter months. They had a couple of large parties in so we had... More

Great atmosphere. Great food. Prime Rib, Lamb Shank, Salmon all very good. Awesome view of the lake. Come early. The place fills up very quickly. We love Old Range. Hopefully you will too.

We had been to this restaurant a couple of times 10+ years ago, and weren't very satisfied. We figured we'd give it another try and boy, were we pleasantly surprised! The prime rib, filet mignon and ribs were all great. We'll visit this restaurant again, next year when we return to Tahoe!!

I just had the most delicious pork ribs I have ever had in my life. This restaurant was highly recommended by my brother-in-law, a serious meat eater. This was the highlight dinner of my five day say in the Tahoe City area. I would recommend reservations, they do get busy. And I would highly recommend the pork ribs. 🍴

Great place for fine, leisure dining. This is not dollar menu/fast food; but quality and done to your specifications. Everyone we have taken here have only good reviews about their varied choices.

We made a last minute reservation on the Fourth of July and just walked over from our little lodge. They sat us right by a window so we could continue to be mesmerized by beauty of lake. We ordered a spinach salad to share, it was gigantic and only $14. The squaw bread was served warm with a mound of... More
