We ate here 3 times during our stay in lake tahoe. The first day the service was slow. On our other 2 visits the service was great. The food is good.

Went to this place because it was the only place that was open for breakfast. Got the ham and cheese omelet. It was horrible, way too much ham, big thick chunks of ham... my brothers Denver omelet was the same, too much ham. Wonton soup my son ordered was horrible. Slow service . And the sad part is we waited... More

Very good breakfast. Country fried steak, gravy, eggs, hash browns and a side of bacon. Would have done this again had we stayed another day.

If you are staying at the Harvey's or Harrah's this is probably the best place to get breakfast. They open up at 6:30am, I am use to having breakfast before 8 or 9 and beats having Starbucks for breakfast.

Anything in between we had to flag them down as they didn't come back to check on us. I ordered the breakfast with eggs, bacon,... More
