Lone Eagle Grille Restaurant Review: Location, location, location is the adage at Lone Eagle Grille. The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe’s flagship restaurant takes full advantage of its prime, lakefront setting to offer cuisine that’s as inspiring as the view. The lounge and restaurant have plush leather seats to settle into close to the rock fireplace beneath soaring ceilings with rough-hewn beams. Putting regionally sourced ingredients center stage, the kitchen presents California fare in a seasonally changing menu that balances heartier wild game and meat dishes with fresh seafood and produce. Game such as elk and buffalo are the biggest sellers, but a pairing of seared ahi, crispy tempura shrimp and briny scallops with microgreens and seaweed salad is a welcome ocean treat. Another standout is the rosemary grilled quail stuffed with goat cheese atop a crisp spring pea pancake. An extensive wine list is helpfully detailed, and the knowledgeable sommelier provides tableside recommendations. Lone Eagle’s lounge is perfect for après-ski (or après-beach) and serves creative Tahoe-themed cocktails, pizzas, calamari and other bar-friendly snacks. For a special experience, grab a Golden Eagle margarita and head outside to roast s’mores on the fire pit.
