This will be a highlight to your visit of Tahoe City. The atmosphere of this inn is delightful, it is right on the water so the view are excellent, and the food is outstanding that reflects this group that started in Hawaii.

Beautiful wood-laden restaurant with a stunning spring lake view. Very well done brunch spread with broad, delicious selection. Very good quality and cleanly presented. Waitstaff, although friendly and positive, fell a bit behind, but in consideration, there were a large number of people & families....More

We dined at Sunnyside after a day of skiing. It’s a few minutes down the road from the center of town but well worth the drive. It’s a popular place so parking was tight. The restaurant is on the lake with a near 180 degree...More

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.
