If you go, ask to sit on deck, weather permitting. The view is a picture postcard. The food is excellent. The salmon ceasar salad was superb. The kobe hamburger is fantastic. The service in the summer is top drawer. The only downside is the cost....More

We ate hear a couple days after the kitchen had a small electrical fire. You would have never known that had just happen. The service was great and the staff were helpful, timely and appreciative.

We always enjoy Sunnyside--any season, any time of day. We have even stayed at their on site hotel many times on the years. I would highly recommend it as well as their sister restaurant in Maui.

Been eating at Sunnyside restaurant for years and years. Always good food, great service, and a fantastic view from the deck. There are reasons it's always crowded, just go and enjoy.

Sunnyside is a must, at a minimum for drinks. Seems like the outdoor restaurant menu has been greatly reduced to basically tacos and burgers, hence the three stars. We just had drinks and a calamari app. My husband was not pleased with a pink house...More

Fish tacos were great. Service was good. Both formal and patio dining options. We sat on the deck and the view and weather were great

We went to Sunnyside for dinner after an afternoon boating on Lake Tahoe. Setting can't be beat. Food and service were very good and prices are reasonable. They have a fairly deep wine list and good selection of food.

Sunnyside is a nice restaurant with the best part being the great views . We would visit several times each summer. Unfortunately for us, they've priced themselves out of our business. Food is good but nothing worth the prices they are now asking.

I had lunch here with colleagues after a conference and we found the food very good (meat and desserts in particular). Nice people around and cool live music too.

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.
