A favorite gathering place for Truckee locals and guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, The Backyard offers a casual American dining experience on the back patio with ski-in/ski-out outdoor smokehouse dining in the winter and poolside service during the summer.

A dip in the pool overlooking Northstar Mountain goes hand in hand with crafty cocktails and casual cuisine. Stop by our walk-up pool bar or receive poolside service. Learn more about our elevated pool experiences by reserving a poolside cabana.

Inspired by traditional barbeque favorites, the Backyard BBQ Bar & Kitchen offers many home-style dishes such as Texas-smoked beef brisket, pulled pork, and other selections of meat cooked on our on-site smoker alongside a variety of house-made barbeque sauces. Pair any dish with a seasonal beverage or craft beer from the Lake Tahoe area. Our Backyard Bar & BBQ remains seasonal with hours and menu offerings subject to change.
