Favorite place inTahoe

We come to Tahoe every year to hike and this is our favorite place to eat. Great outdoor patio. We love the Kona pizza, pear salad, Mac and cheese, and French onion soup. Everything we have had here had been delicious!!

Love the food here. Amazing fish and chips! Cant go wrong with the entire menu. The place is small, always packed and loud. Locals hot spot. They will even cook up fish you have caught on the lake. Yum, yum and more yum!

I didn't really want to eat there, but the Scottish birthday boy in our group won out. It was great fun, and you haven't lived until you've had the truffle Mac n cheese! The bread pudding was yummy too.

We went there around 2 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon so it wasn't crowded. We ordered calamari for an appetizer. That was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside which is no small feat with calamari. It was pretty good. I ordered their mushroom and swiss burger which was okay. My husband ordered the cabbage and the corned... More

We ate here 3 times in 1 week, what does that say? We couldn't get enough and I'm not sure how because I've never seen such generous portions!!! You just want to try it ALL! We always ate outside it was so pleasant. Lots of different beers to try if you want too. The staff very warm and friendly.

We were looking forward to dining at Macduffs Pub since we loved dining there 3 years ago. One of white cloth napkins with the utensils inside was dirty. The cup of water tasted like beer. The table was dirty and we had to ask a server to clean it I ordered a burger and asked for it to be well... More

A short walk from Inn By The Lake, this local pub has a little bit of everything. Has a small but interesting bar, nice lake view patio seating outside and a menu with a variety of choices. We had salad, pizza, hamburgers and warm bread pudding for dessert. Full bar and nice choice of IPA's. Great service and very eager... More

We stopped on a lovely summer day and outdoor dining was very inviting. During our lunch waitress was more interested in her telephone than checking on tables. Clam chowder tasty but not hot enough. Fish and chips pricy for portion and batter, while light, was undercooked and anemic in color. On a Monday, coleslaw was limp, obviously left from weekend.... More
