I dined and stayed with River Ranch in back in 2004 and remember having the Caesar:) all menu items were fabulous!! I have just completed my reservation to stay at River Ranch Inn over the NYE holiday season. I would love to win your giveaway for me and my guests.

* Durham Ranch Bison Burger

Tomato bacon jam. Enough said. But if that isn't enough to win you over, I promise this burger is fantastic, one of the best in the around. Soft bun, fresh veggies, and a juicy bison burger, gives it a extra-fancy twist on a classic.

Double-Cut Elk Chops

WOW! My husband ordered this meal and I wanted to steal it from him it was sooooooo good. The elk was two huge chops and cooked perfectly medium rare. The cherry demiglaze was the perfect pair to the elk. The asparagus were crunchy and tasty. The The fingerling potatoes were pretty, but bland. Overall would totally order again!

Ranch Stroganoff

We visited for my husband's 50th Birthday dinner end of July 2020 The patio was beautiful and the food and service were awesome! My husband had the Ranch Stroganoff and he keeps talking about it! We will be visiting in September for my birthday and he says that's what he will be ordering.!

* Heirloom Caprese

My husband of 47 years that day had the Elk Double Chops, we shared a Salad Caprese which was soooo scrumptious and I had the Seafood Stew (to die for). Can't wait to have a special occasion come up so we can enjoy the ambiance and the food. Service was excellent and timing was perfect.

* Baby Lettuce Caesar

Great Salad. Also had the prime New York. It is a thin steak so hard to get rare but it was close and had great flavor. We did not realize the double room only had one bed so a little uncomfortable but doable. Also, it was 80 degrees in the room and we did not find the fan in the closet until the next morning. Next visit we will get a king on the river and use the fan.

* Famous Ranch Nachos

We rafted the river, and much like nearly everyone else, we stopped afterward at River Ranch for some sustenance and refreshments. As usual, we were not disappointed. We had nachos and another member had chicken (tenders?) along with some soft drinks and adult beverages. Due to Covid, it is a little different setup, but things went pretty smoothly and we received our food and drinks in a timely fashion. It was a beautiful day on the river and we enjoyed the outdoor patio.

* Famous Ranch Nachos

The River Ranch is one of my all time favorite spots in the Tahoe area. The deck is fantastic fun to watch the river roll by and see friends with families have a good time on the Truckee. All of the food is great and the cocktails are even better.

BALCONY KING, OVER/ON PATIO

Such a fun and relaxing vibe @River Ranch! We loved our balcony room right by the river takeout. We really felt like we were at a resort. The rafting company and crew hauling out behind our side porch reminded me of my youth in a rafting town in Pennsylvania, and the constant sound of the rapids made it a very soothing and happy location.

* Durham Ranch Bison Burger

The Durham Ranch Bison Burger was cooked perfectly and was scrumptious (I added mushrooms and avocado). I could really tell its difference from a beef burger in that it was leaner, and I didn't feel quite as heavy afterward. The bun was grilled and buttered and was yummy as well. It's my go to when I want to feel comforted (which is always right now).

* Bristol Bay Diver Scallops

I had the Bay scallops and they were PERFECTLY cooked, and so delicious. The dish came with 4 huge scallops. The asparagus risotto that accompanied the dish was rich and creamy. I wanted to lick the plate it was so good and a huge serving. Totally get your money worth. Thanks to our waiter Stewart for the recommendation!! Can't wait to go back here!

* Famous Ranch Nachos

Good taste with the pork, but not much pork included and chips under the top layer were cold and hers wasn't melted. Also, overpriced at $16 plus but very little meat. Lastly, really need to clean the ladies restroom. Trash piled up to counter.

My favorite burger in the North Lake Tahoe / Truckee area! Love the cozy interior during winter months and the deck overlooking the river during summer.

Ahi Poke

I LOVE this place. Great service, great food, good vibe. I've had many dishes here but the ahi poke is delish as well as the tacos. Highly recommended.

Double-Cut Elk Chops

What can I say!? A lot actually! What an amazing restaurant, after our rafting expedition we pulled up into this little place to get out of our raft and shuttle back to our car. We immediately were drawn by the patio ambiance and seating. So once at our car we headed back. The FOOD O.M.G., I had the Elk which was so amazing. I am from a family of hunters and they did it just right! With a delightful cherry sauce and crusted in tellicherry peppercorns. Yum! My husband had the ribeye, which was to die for! And my kiddos had the chicken nuggets and pasta! Did I mention the soup of the day was a mushroom bisque? SERIOUSLY! It was the best bisque I've ever had, hands down!! We visited during COVID and the staff made us feel welcome and the service was amazing! All anxiety was set aside during this trying time. Oh and brussel sprouts appetizer with shishito peppers was scrumptious so so good! I would recommend highly. I have eaten at 5 star Michelin restaurants and this place can definitely compete!
