River Ranch Lodge & Restaurant
Located on the banks of the Truckee River between Truckee and Tahoe City, this rustic old Tahoe lodge has been a Tahoe dining favorite for many, many years. Choose between a cozy seat in our Fireplace Dining Room or along the river in our River View Dining Room. In the summer, dine on our patio that overlooks the river. Our menu changes seasonally and we specialize in wild game, fresh seafood and choice cut steaks. Nightly dinner specials are available year round.
After reading reviews on several websites, and looking at the lodge's website, we were expecting something a bit more scenic, and certainly more comfortable! When we called for the reservation we were promised a room over looking the river, but weren't told that the only room available for people traveling w/ a dog looks out to the huge patio full of after-rafting partiers! Additionally, the public restrooms for all those rafters were right next door to our room! There were long lines for the restrooms for most of the afternoon and evening. Really not pleasant. Anyway, things quieted down after 9pm or so, and we had a nice dinner in their restaurant and enjoyed the river from there. Although this is one of the few hotels on the North Shore which allows dogs, I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you plan on being one part of the party on the deck and have a higher tolerance for bathroom lines outside your door than we do!
