The Cottonwood Restaurant is located on the south side of Truckee off of Brockway Rd, old Hwy 267. It sits on the hill high above Truckee and has great views overlooking the city and the Sierra mountains. From the rustic entrance to the cozy atmosphere this is one of Truckee's favorites. It is centrally located between downtown Truckee and Sierra Meadows and is a short drive to / from Lahontan, Martis Camp, Schaffer's Mill and The Village at Northstar. They have a great selection of starters, salads and entrees and the bar area is very comfortable as well. Thursdays and Fridays they have live music and in the summer months the music is out on the deck, weather permitting.
