Awesome and perfectly cooked. Also, the peppercorn sauce was spectacular!
Awesome... best bbq... better than Texas!!!
This was absolutely delicious. The shrimp were perfectly flavored and had an amazing texture. All of the vegetable wet chopped to perfection and the tostadas were crisp and delicious. Perfect to share
The fresh tomatoes pair perfectly with the fresh and creamy mozzarella cheese and sweet, fragrant basil. It is seriously like a bite of heaven in your mouth!
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.
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).
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!
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.
So yummy after a day of rafting and the beers are great too!
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.
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.
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!
This place is awesome. Fantastic view and great food.
Delicious and perfect... Very fresh, tasty and refreshing the perfect appetizer to shre
This juicy burger, encased in a golden, fluffy brioche bun was grilled to a moist pink perfection, and just melted into my mouth along with the warmth of the cheddar cheese, highlighted by the crisp lettuce and the fresh beefsteak tomato slice. Best chased down by a cold local draft beer that's as refreshing as the river running right alongside our table.
Portion size was good. Shrimp was whole and not cut up into small pieces which i liked . Chunks of avocado and lime wedges included.
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.
Ahai poke was awesome. Halibut was perfect. And nice size portions. The service was top-notch. Great dinning experience!
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.
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!
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.!
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.
Surprisingly delicious and filling!! Perfect with a nice glass of Chardonnay!! Overlooking the Truckee River!!
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.
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.
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.
