My favorite dive bar and breakfast place in Tahoe!!!

They do it right! Have several screens around the walls not plastered with dollar bills so that you can find whatever game(s) you are looking for. Breakfasts that would fill a football team, and good too! Love the guys, love the place. My kind of livin' :)

Never had a bad meal there. My favorite place to watch a game. Lots of TVs so everyone has a good view. Great staff. This is my favorite bar in South Lake.

Love this place, super friendly and full of local types. Good bar and good folk. When I went there was a brawl and most did not leave their stools like it was a regular thing. Just saying.....

Good burgers and a place to rub elbows with the locals. Friendly and home-like. A good selection of beers and TVs abound to see the game

Leaving Lake Tahoe, were looking for a place for late quick lunch. Brothers looked all right. First we went to the bar and I loved the mood, the decoration, the customers (a bit on the rough side), and the menu was OK as well. Nothing fancy, some didn't have to read a novel to make up its mind. There were... More

The sign on this place says Brothers Bar & Grill - Sports Bar so you don't expect the food to be very good. But we had just hiked the mile uphill from Emerald Bay about 10 miles north and cold beer sounded great. Once inside and looking at the menu, we realised there was food that sounded good and met...

I love this place! The bartenders are always nice. When you order food you get in a timely manner and it's piping hot. Funny thing, my friends and I went on St. Patricks evening and the place wasn't packed. It was more a locals place and the people were nice and not rowdy and rude. On the outside it looks... More

Lovely food. Very helpful staff. They only served one size beer and I wanted a small one so they suggested my husband and I share. They suggested the same for our meal. This was more than adequate for us and saved us a lot of money.

Locals love this joynt -- and for good reason. It is cheap. It is friendly. It serves good food and cheap, cold beer. Come for the pub food and "Cheers" atmosphere. Sit with the contractors and tradespeople to enjoy your delicious chilli fries.

We stopped here for a quick bite on our way through. Service was good, meal cane quickly and was tasty. We sat outside which was pleasant. There were a few bikers stopped for a drink and a bunch of locals inside. Easy relaxed atmosphere and a tasty burger.
