We stopped here for dinner because it smelled so good walking by and our noses didn't fail us....we sat outside and enjoyed the band that was playing. Our server was attentive and friendly. The pizza was sooooo good and the large is more than enough to feed four people. We will definitely be coming back and there is a 10%... More

Slow service, but that is what seems to be prevalent in Lake Tahoe. The pizza and beer were great, though, and it was very pleasant listening to the live music sitting outside.

Loved this place. We got a salad that had amazing gorgonzola dressing. The garlic bread and garlic chips were very good. Pizza was delicious and service was amazing because they were very busy. Liked the music outside playing too!

Can you say Yummy :-) For our pizza we decided to go unusual and ordered the Thai Chicken Curry - very good. For as crazy busy... More

We've been to South Lake Tahoe twice in the last couple of months and have eaten at Base Camp Pizza three times. We love going there, as the food and service is great. You can sit outside with your dog and enjoy a meal while listening to music. It's also a great place to people watch!

If you want great pizza, good drinks, and a great time, head over to Base Camp. It is in the heart of the Heavenly Village and it is always packed so call ahead if you can. This place caters to everyone...singles, couples, and families (most of the patrons). There is usually some live music going on outside in their lounge... More

We stayed at the Marriot and this restaurant is located on the ground level of that property. We had take out pizza and salad from here twice in one week. It was delicious and the people were very friendly.

This place is busy for a reason, great pizza, great beer, and good live music. I will start by saying we were feeding 6, 2 teens, 2 parents, 2 grandparents, to give you an idea how this went. We waited about an hour for a table, got there at 5:45 on a Friday. The wait was up to and an... More
