“What a wonderful new find in Tahoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012

Wow, the North Lake Tahoe restaurant scene just took a gigantic step upwards! Between the beautiful new dining room, professional and attentive service, reasonable prices, and best of all, the mouthwatering food, there is nothing else like the Rustic Lounge today on the North Shore. The experience is the equivalent of Stella (Truckee) which is setting the standard with their inventive cuisine. You will find the same quality here at better prices, and you are right across the street to the Lake! Alan and Martha have created the perfect destination fine dining room- with the added benefit of world class service (which stems from the attention to detail throughout their fantastic Cedar Glen Lodge hotel onsite). But don't get me wrong- by no means is Rustic Lounge stuffy or pretentious. Our little girl was welcomed with a smile and give the same great service as anyone else. Grab a table by the window and prepare to be dazzled. Its a very small restaurant (but the tables are not jammed together) and with the way things are going, soon it will be very tough to get a table. The new and gorgeous wine and beer bar is an added treat for Happy Hour!

“Great Food For All”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

Four of us had a great time at the Cedar Glen Lodge. It is a perfect place to spend a relaxing
and enjoyable week there. The restaurant serves great food. The service is exceptional. Alan
and Martha see to it that everyone is catered to. They go to great lengths to make sure that
everyone is happy and is treated well. We even were able to have the food delivered to our
balcony and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner outside, under the trees and with a scenic view
of the lake. We will surely visit again and the lodge and restaurant will be our home again
for our next vacation.
