There were 4 of us staying in Tahoe City, California last weekend. We decided to have a nice dinner and one of our group recommended Sunnyside Lodge. The weather was perfect and because I made reservations the day before we were able to sit on the deck looking at the beautiful lake. We brought our own wine and paid a...

After kayaking in the lake and driving around being tourists, we came upon Sunnyside Restaurant. We were greeted by a friendly staff and had a wonderful late lunch. We shared the fried zuchini sticks and I got the torta and my husband had the fish tacos. All were delicious and came out quickly. We also had a specialty drink-I think...

Fabulous little find. We get there by boat but you can drive, it is just a perfect place to spend the afternoon. Food is excellent, I recommend the fish tacos which are delicious, and they make a fabulous Bloody Mary!

Try to get a room with a water view. Nice property...a little bit dated, but works for Tahoe. Gorgeous view and is located within walking distance of bike, SUP, and kayak rentals. A grocery store and 2 restaurants are also close if you don't want to eat in the hotel restaurant. Fantastic customer service!!!

Over the years, the food and beverage menu has reflected newer tastes. You can rely on freshness,quality and pretty good value for a lakeside venue. The young staff always are friendly and informed. It's a must stop in the summer. Convenient bike rack out front - easy boat docking steps away. Fish tacos, pork torta sandwich and chopped chicken salad...

We have been here many times over the years. Sunnyside consistently has good food and drinks, and a great place to bring friends. Great atmosphere and laid back! We sat in the bar, it was pretty busy, and the service was average, that is why I gave 4 stars and not 5. We had to flag down our waiter to...
