Love the comfy booths, old rustic decor,and great views of the lake! Rib eye was awesome and my friend had the ribs - awesome as well!! Little pricey but unlike other places around the lake you get large portions that can easily be split!

Dined with friends for dinner. Very dark inside restaurant and decor is a definite 70's flashback. We were lucky enough to sit by the window and had a view. Service is beyond slow. Not the friendliest either. Steaks and salads were good and large portions. Not sure we would dine here again with all the other options out there. The... More

We had a bit of a wait to be seated but the prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes, and Ceasar salad were delicious. Bartender and server were very friendly.

Crowded restaurant, food really pricey (chicken $22), server lazy and not friendly. Had to wait 30+ minutes to get a table. Too dark to read menu.

Had the the hearts of palm salad. Says it is enough for two but could have easily served three. Would have liked a little less dressing but was quite good. For entrees, we had the ribeye steak and the lamb shank. Both were tasty but think the lamb shank was the better of the two. It was served with gnocchi... More

When we came to north shore Lake Tahoe, I was surprised there were not many restaurants. And if you did find a restaurant, you had to have a reservation, which we did not have one. We found the Old Range Steakhouse and had a GREAT time! They got us in right away and the service was right on. I had... More

My family ate at the Old Range last night. The restaurant was clean and the decor was old school. Frosted glasses with the beer was a great start. We all had steaks and the sizes were very generous. My steak was cooked as ordered and very tender. All entrees come with made from scratch garlic mashed potatoes which were delicious.... More

My husband and I both had the early bird prime rib special. It was a petite size but was more than enough. The service was prompt and the staff very friendly.

We were staying at the Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort and this restaurant is within walking distance. The time of year we ate in the restaurant it was low season so tourists were not in high numbers but I imagine that it is very difficult to get a reservation in the winter. Because it was quiet, the latest we could eat was... More

This by far is the best Steakhouse at Tahoe. The salads are so good all the dinners are so good. Large portions. You won't leave hungry. Unique lakeview restaurant. The best chicken ribs and steaks
