Dracula Beware But Go

I love garlic but there is garlic on pretty much every dish and lots of it. The scallop appetizer offered perfectly cooked scallops on perfect small pancakes with spinach but the abundance of garlic chunks was too much. Lovely presented Baked Brie with crisp toast points and fruit but garlic again... read more

I really wanted to eat here on our upcoming anniversary trip, based off the reviews... But when I called to inquire about if reservations were needed as well as the live music afternoons/nights someone mentioned, there was no answer. I called over a dozen times and left messages. None of which were returned. The concierge at our hotel tried as... More

Friendly staff, great food, sun shining, amazing views a place not to be missed especially to watch the sun set (some may say pricey) but worth it

Great Food, Great Drinks, Great Service! OUTSTANDING! We ordered steaks which were cooked to perfection, garlic mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus! Great selection of specialty drinks and scallops for an appetizer! All of it was amazing! Thank you

We were shocked when we walked in for lunch and we were the only ones besides the waite staff, but the service was good and the food wasn't bad. I ordered the chicken cobb salad and my boyfriend ordered the pesto chicken plate. Reasonably priced and tasted good! How can I forget, the amazing lake view!! :-)

We stayed at the hotel for two nights, and made reservations for dinner at the Boathouse. Not much can be said about our experience with the restaurant since it was closed for renovations.

We came midweek in a slow season, and thoroughly enjoyed our relaxed meal watching the sun set over Lake Tahoe and surrounding mountains. A live singer with his guitar provided the perfect touch. My new favorite spot. I can't imagine it's easy to get a table in high season.

We tried the boathouse after it was recommended by a local person we met on the ski lift (thank you Johnny for great tip). We turned up at around 5.30pm in time to watch the lovely sunset outside with drinks. As mentioned, this place is on the lake and is a beautiful setting. We then moved inside to the restaurant...

Being our first visit to the Boathouse On The Pier, we didn't know what to expect. We went for dinner on a Friday evening and arrived at about 5:45. The place is nice and quaint but not very big (I'm guessing 10 tables in the interior main seating area). There is outside seating that would be very nice during warmer... More
