The wait is over and a new name for the former Ridge Club Deli has picked, thanks to an online poll this summer.

Names were created by Ridge Tahoe guests, the community and beyond that best describe the restaurant and its fresh, natural and simple food selections. The names were narrowed to three and the public was asked to pick again. Now The Ridge Tahoe proudly presents the Mountain Side Eatery.

“We love it because it says exactly what we are: a place to enjoy delicious, savory, wholesome food atop a high Sierra resort,” said The Ridge Tahoe Executive Chef Stephen J. Moise.

Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and a lighter dinner, the Mountain Side Eatery offers a casual and innovative menu that you can eat-in or take back to your room.

Breakfast features bacon and eggs, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and other goodies to help start your day off deliciously and a full-menu of coffee drinks are available throughout the day.

Deli salads and sandwiches can be packed to take on the go as you tour Lake Tahoe or enjoyed in the comfortable dining setting at the Mountain Side Eatery. Lunch menu features traditional sandwiches (think turkey and cranberry) but also includes tasty specials like a Cobb Salad loaded with bacon and blue cheese, or a Shrimp Louis Wrap of beautiful fresh vegetables and plenty of tine shrimp.

Dinners vary daily and include favorites like salmon with wild rice, prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes, fried chicken with roasted vegetables, giant chicken burritos, and other tempting dishes.

Pizzas, burgers and homemade soups are available throughout the day. Fresh baked goods from the pastry chef are the perfect sweet accompaniment to a meal or a delight on their own.

The Mountain Side Eatery also features an omelet bar Saturday and Sunday mornings, a stir fry dinner on select nights, and a taco bar on Saturdays from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.
