we went for a late night dinner and sat outside. local band playing and and they were great. 2.00 tacos were really good. BUT service was a bit slow. They were out of some stuff that we wanted and said a shipment was coming tomorrow.

It looked to be a cozy little spot to grab a bite, but we were anything but cozy. We sat outside, only one family was there aside from us. We placed our order within the first 10 minutes of being there, waited over an hour, watched a whole other family (who arrived about 30 minutes after us) get their food... More

I liked the outdoor seating, but also the cozy bar. We had the New York steak and eggs, and a jack and coke, the steak had excellent flavor especially for a breakfast steak, it said 8 Oz but seemed to be more. And my drink was perfect. Friendly team-oriented staff. The bartender has been there for 27 years, but be... More

Very good service, friendly and food was good. Nice outdoor seating, clean. The table next to us should have put a hat on the little baby. Was sunny and warm but comfortable tables with umbrellas.

We stopped off here for a quick dinner one night after driving down from Tahoe City. As we were sitting at the bar, their music and televisions kept going out. We were told that the entire area was out of power and Brothers was only open because they had a generator. More and more people came in and we heard... More

We watched the US play Portugal in the World Cup. The bar was packed and cheering loudly. Chants of "USA USA" filled the room when we scored. The beer was cold. The burgers were very good, and the service was good. Overall a good experience.

Had been to Brothers once before years ago and seemed a decent place. I was staying at the Lake last weekend with my family and after a long day hiking a burger and a beer seemed like the best way to end the day. We were greeted when we entered and told to sit anywhere and after selecting a table... More

It's a tad loud inside, but the food is great and the staff very friendly. One of the best burgers I've had in years and the fries and tater tots we're perfectly crispy and hot. Good prices. If you're hungry and want to watch sports on TV, look no further.

I've had a really good time every time I've gone to Brothers, the staff is always friendly they pour good drinks and they are easy on the wallet, I generally end up staying here much longer than I expect to, always a sign of a comfortable spot you enjoy being at and feel welcome. Brothers is definitely a working mans... More

looks & feels like a home for Harleys, but it is family friendly, has dark but comfy bar area with multiple sports-TV's, and bench outdoor seating, rugged, cool, different...food not bad, had a good burger, but be careful if gluten intolerant cause the great french fries are cooked in flour batter.
