Absolutely full of people of a sunny day. Splendid views of the Lake. You might have to wait for a table. Good food, served fast. Prices are high.

We ate at Sunnyside twice while in Tahoe, it was delicious both times. We loved sitting Lake side on the patio, that was totally out favorite dinner, ambiance etc. The Salmon bowl is to die for! Yum!

Perfect lakeside setting for dinner. My husband had their very popular fish tacos while I had the crab artichoke sandwich. Both dishes were beautifully presented and delicious.

Had lunch and then dinner and both were good experiences. Great terrace on the lake. Amazing atmosphere. Food is quite good. Suggest to book before going as it is quite crowded in August.

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.
