Milk shake is good after that, not to much to this place. Neat old diner feel but overall food is just not that good.

Breakfast lunch and dinner is served her with a variety of menu options and the portions are healthy. We went for breakfast. I had a veggie omelet and my partner tried pancakes.both were good yet nothing to rave about. The restaurant was quite busy and the service was fast and polite

Had breakfast here and the food was good. Interesting specials. Wait staff was friendly, with helpful recommendations, but we did have to wait a decent amount of time to order and then get served. We were not in any type of hurry and it was not an issue for us--but to those who insistent on immediate and prompt service, this... More

Stopped for breakfast on my way to Southern California. I had the special hash. My plate was full, very tasty and unusual. Never has a brisket hash, but it was spicy and had lots of meat and potatoes plus two pieces of toast. The coffee was hot and strong. Nice interior but showing it's age.

We took our son to Woodward Tahoe located at Boreal ski facillity. We drove up from South Lake Tahoe. This restaurant is next to railroad tracks in downtown Truckee. It was featured previously on Food Network. My Woman got Paleo options and raved about them. I went for Thanksgiving plate. I did have to start out with a large made... More

Stopped here on our visit to Truckee. Both of us had a slice of peach pie and cherry pie washed down with some coffee. Both really tasty! Cute little diner with friendly service.

We read good things about Jax and saw the video of their spot on Food Network. It's a classic diner restaurant but features more inventive and upscale items along with regular diner fare. I ordered the homemade corned beef hash with poached eggs. the hash was definitely not the ordinary variety, as it had a sweet component that at first... More

Most of the food is typical all American fare with a few unique items...like the Falafel wrap. The Parmasean fries were good and the potato chips are house made and delicious.

While on our way home from Kings Beach we stopped in for lunch. When we were met at the door the hostess/waitress was very busy and said it'll be a few minutes. They were shorthanded but at least they told us from the get go. Then you at least you know what to expect. Lunch was good I had a... More

I stopped here because I saw the place on DDD. I was with my wife visiting Lake Tahoe. We got there before noon. The place was busy but not crowded. We sat right away. I wanted to try the Kobe Meatloaf but was told it is made only during dinner service. Our server noticed I was disappointed and said she... More
