Child without a hat

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.

When first moving to Tahoe this was my go to bar, I ate once a day, and whenever I went out this was my spot. Now that I'm closer to stateliness I don't go as often. But the food is great, I've never had a bad meal and I think Ive had almost everything on the menu. Breakfast until 2... More

If you like the way it looks on the outside, you'll be happy when you get to the inside. No overpriced drinks. Just happy people getting out of the house for a few drinks and a few laughs. Great place to destress.

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

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.
