From the road Sierra Gourmet Grill looks like a little house set back among a huge parking lot yet when you step inside the restaurant is quaint and rustic with prompt service.
Once inside my husband and I were instantly greeted by Kevin who was standing behind the bar. Since the restaurant wasn’t crowded we were able to handpick our table. I was drawn to their picnic table and asked to be seated there. Unfortunately my husband who is 6’4” and had back surgery a year ago couldn’t get quite comfortable in the table so we eventually asked if we could move.
Without a blink of an eye, Kevin moved us to a more comfortable spot so my husband could have a regular chair with some back support. If you have any back issues, I would suggest not being seated at their very beautiful picnic table. In fact, all their tables were beautiful. According to their website, the tables and bar top are cedar plants made from repurposed trees from the Angora fire that occurred in South Lake Tahoe just up the Mountain.
What the little restaurant lacks in seating, it makes up with BIG flavor through their food! The menu choices were very appealing from sandwiches and burgers to steaks, chicken and seafood. And an added bonus they have a kids menu as well.
