Rosie's Cafe is a great place for breakfast. It is well worth the hour drive for us and we often go up for the delicious food and great service. It does get busy during the ski season and summer, so we usually confine our visits to the spring and fall.

very friendly and attentive staff, and the food was amazing! There were 3 adults in our party, and even though it was busy, we did not feel rushed.

Stopped here to get takeout spaghetti platter so I can eat in my hotel room while on a trip out west. Sat at the bar and had a drink while my food was being prepared. The bartender was a bit rude and not very attentive. When I returned to my hotel room to eat, I got halfway through the meal... More

Heard about this place from a local I met on my flight in. He told me it was a great local place with great food and great prices and would be a better value than the resort food at the Hyatt in Incline, where we were staying. We stopped by Saturday night on our way back to Incline. We had... More

Nice ambiance, friendly staff. I had the famous chicken fried steak. If your in the area, it's worth the stop.

Had pizza (again), quite tasty. Spouse had veggie noodles with pork, which had a good flavor. Had burgers on last visit, which were really good.

Really good service and good food. Even when business gets frantic on a Sunday morning, quality of food or service does not suffer.

We loved the food and found the decorations quite peculiar. Best Breakfast Burito ever! Quality, fresh ingredients, tasty bacon, tomatoes that pooped in your mouth. Personally, I've had better Country Fried Chicken Steak & Eggs but the gravy was good. Why the "Average" rating? We dined inside and taking a closer look, we noticed the place was dusty and needs...

Great location but food for 3 ranged from not very good to really nice dressing on a not to well presented cobb salad, medium rare cheeseburger was well done. fries were loaded with salt. diet soda seemed watery, cheese sandwich with egg was greasy?? the view of the lake probably added a star
