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.

The Backyard Bar & BBQ is currently closed for the season.


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.
