Real authentic BBQ with great service. We had the pulled pork with fries. Delicious and a great backdrop being right on the beach. Well worth the short detour off the main drag!

This location is great for a sunset but that was all we enjoyed. When I bbq I'm all about the sauce. This place had three on the menu but when we asked the server and she said two and they were out of one. We found every thing bland and had to use bottled hot sauce. This is supposed to... More

We have been going to Lake Tahoe for years. This discovery a couple of weeks ago made our most recent visit to the area even more special. We live in Dallas and know Texas BBQ. This is the real deal. Prices were very reasonable. Large portions. Great sides. Delicious meat was smoked in Placerville and brought up the mountain. The... More

Well we wanted to eat during sunset, and you can't beat this location. Unfortunately, there was a fellow playing a karaoke machine and guitar to oldies by Frank Sinatra, imposing his style of music on the restaurant-goers. It was too loud, and rather out of context. The food was just OK - we had pulled pork. We'll go to Jimmy's... More

Great casual Dining on the beach, with a great menu to choose from. The sunsets are incredible here and there is a guy who plays guitar and has some background music he plays with very soothing and easy to listen to. They have heaters for cooler evenings and a wind block so it stays very comfortable outside. They serve only... More

We have been to this restaurant 3 or 4 years in a row and each time the menu has changed. This time the name changed as well to the "Beach BBQ. It is now strictly BBQ. Sandwiches and Burgers, but best of all they offer a Family Style dinner platter with a choice of 3 of 4 items. We had... More

Surprisingly good Texas BBQ, great hangout by the beach at South Lake Tahoe. It was a casual vibe with good food, beers, and great service. Great to watch sunset or see stars out while in South Lake Tahoe in summer.

We found this spot 14 years ago because we could smell garlic fries while walking along the lakefront and kept walking until we found where the fries were being served. It's no longer the same restaurant, but the location is the same. Today, it is a BBQ spot, with the same great views of the lake. There is patio dining... More

We drove to the Beach House at south Lake Tahoe a little before sunset. We had no idea in a few minutes it will became one of the highlight of our trip... The view was breathtaking. We were stunned by the beauty, speechless. The bartender was really friendly and the BBQ was out of the world! What a nice place.... More
