* 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.

* Wagyu Cheeseburger

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!

* 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.
