    The ambience is what it's all about. Also, the beer and wine selections are terrific, (thank you for carrying great CA wines), and we always enjoy the Mai Tais. The food we love is the zucchini. We typically share a Hula Pie, which was so yummy. We go to Sunnyside at least once every time we are at Tahoe (a few times/year). It's been a life-long tradition for us. We have celebrated special occasions there, met up with big groups of friends and family there, and gone for date night, especially to take in those amazing lake views. We do not go for the food, frankly, as most of the entrees (and salads) are just okay. But Sunnyside is special. The energy is always lively and friendly because of the staff. Kudos to the smiling, welcoming, young people who seem to enjoy their work. Our server was terrific, genuine, efficient, warm. We had a wonderful time.

    Another wonderful dinner at our favorite Tahoe north shore restaurant. Great view from a window table. Jack, our waiter, was especially attentive, though we’ve never had anything but great servers. Hard to narrow down our menu choices. The filet and scampi entree was terrific. Wow! Gar Woods is the place for special dinners. We will be back in three weeks for a high school graduation celebration for our twin nieces.

    Our server was great, the food was also very good. We started with crab cakes (Best I ever had) and the coleslaw that came with it was really good. Then we each got clam chowder soup (Better than SF), and then we split dinners the lobster tails & macadamia crusted Halibut. The halibut was a little dry but flavor was good. Lobster tails were perfect.

Discover Tahoe City

For those who like eating at a location with a view, Tahoe City is one of the most iconic areas of North Lake Tahoe. The mountain town is perfect for winter sports such as skiing, and during the summer months, you can enjoy a bike ride around the lake. With all of the outdoor activities that are available in Tahoe City, it's fitting that there are some great dining options as well. Barbecue is always a favorite here. Feast on ribs, chicken, pork, turkey, or homemade sides. There are a few more upscale options as well. The local coffee shops have great breakfast burritos that use fresh, local ingredients. There are also plenty of bakeries and ice cream shops where you can find something to satisfy your sweet tooth.
