I used to be a huge fan of Plumpjack Squaw Valley Inn. I even had my wedding reception there. Their wine list is still out of this world with a full range of interesting choices. The last time (fall 2006) I found the whole experience to be below average. After speaking with other, I don't feel this was just an off night. The staff had an indifferent attitude to the customers. I mean we all know workers in Tahoe have other passions, but this was to the point of unwelcoming. We had a group of 6 and no one was impressed with their main however the desserts were still great. A potentially fabulous dinner turned into one no better than a Thursday night at TGI-Fridays. The hotel and restaurant look dated and it appears they are resting on their laurels. I used to recommend it but no longer.
Pros: cool location, great wine list, good desserts
Cons: over priced average food, unmotivated staff, dated
