Squaw Valley Restaurants

Including Alpine Meadows

While the amazing natural beauty of Lake Tahoe feeds your soul — it does little to calm the tummy rumblings when hunger strikes. Let this Squaw Valley restaurants guide (that includes Alpine Meadows restaurants) help make your vacation delicious and satisfying as well as relaxed and adventure filled. Fast food restaurants are found next to intimate Mom and Pop eateries and close to lavish venues. Where Olympic athletes tread in 1960, present-day restaurants deliver diverse Squaw Valley dining options from Cal Asian, Irish, American, Italian and other foods such as Mexican and Chinese. Many Squaw Valley restaurants, no frills to high-end, come with fabulous views of mountains and the sky at various altitudes.

In Squaw Valley restaurants, you can fuel up for a Lake Tahoe day of fun with a loaded bagel, bowl of steel cut oatmeal dotted with fresh fruit or a colorful juice smoothie. Need a snack in between hitting the slopes and shopping the stores? Pizza, in every size and for every palate, is a favorite boost. Some Squaw Valley dining options feature the best of local Placer County wines and produce. Dinners can start with layers of flavors from grilled peach, sharp bites of arugula accompanied by creamy goat cheese or candied almonds’ crunch along with a white balsamic vinegar emulsion and port reduction.

Squaw Valley Restaurants Are Diverse

Casualness in dress rules at Squaw Valley restaurants but not on all menus.

Seared tuna and shredded Napa cabbage delight Squaw Valley diners with the creamy and crispy textures from sliced avocados, carrot slivers and wonton pieces. Squaw Valley restaurants welcome every appetite with delicious food at a great altitude.
