Best meal we ate on our trip to Lake Tahoe! More importantly- BEST SERVICE!!! A must for hungry travelers weary of searching for good food in Tahoe area. Live music was the icing on the cake 😊.

After reading all the wonderful reviews here, I knew we had to try this place. It did not disappoint! I love pizza, as does my entire family. We order it often. I was a little hesitant about the prices here. A large (8 slices) is between $24-$26 which is more than we usually pay. We have some really good local... More

We met here several times because relatives liked the informality and the beer selection. Pizza selection was varied and suited every taste. Even with the personal portion pizzas we often brought leftovers back to the hotel room to eat for lunch the next day.

The bartender was very helpful and offered samples of beer to help us decide what to order. Nice selection to choose from. Don't know if we hit happy hour but the prices were very good: three dollars a draft. Pizza was tasty. We had the Mediterranean. Service was great!

We visited this restaurant multiple times during our 7 day stay in South Lake Tahoe. Not only was the food delicious,but the service was always great! There were always large crowds but this is a well oiled machine when it comes to getting the job done. Kudos to the management!!

Our first night in Tahoe (Friday, June 27), we went here after seeing that it was ranked so high on here, not just as a pizza joint, but a restaurant. We were seated outside in a perfect spot to watch the live music going on right there. We had a waiter and his trainee, so we were well taken care... More

South Tahoe is not the place to find good pizza but Base Camp has the best of the location. Good toppings, good crust and sauce. Nice location and eating outside in nice weather a bonus.

We ate artichoke dip that was awesome and a large base camp special. You are served XL pop and they are quick to refill. The outdoor concert music was great too. Family friendly.

We decided to order a Pizza for a simple & quick dinner. We ordered the pizza and decided to pick it up for indoor dining at our condo. Seems like a simple task. Someone we know who visits Lake Tahoe regularly, recommended Base Camp. We decided to give it a try. The person who took the order seemed proficient. Told... More
