This place is on Lake Tahoe...literally! We sat outside overlooking the lake and found out they were having happy hour with 50% off appetizers so we ordered the warm brie place with fruit and the crab cakes - both were excellent! You can't beat the location of this place. They also have music 7 nights a week!

The Boathouse certainly has a fabulous setting on a pier right on the lake, looking directly out towards the sunset. Location wise you couldn't ask for a better spot. We choose to sit out on the balcony - it you don't like the full heat then rather sit inside, We ordered the ahi tuna poke to start, which was a... More

The food at this place was nice and the waiters where friendly. Food was served in a good time. The sunset on the balcony was amazing.

The setting on a long pier extending from the beach hotel would make this special even if the food were so/so. . .but the food is wonderful and the view is just icing on the cake.

We stayed at the Beach Retreat and Lodge so it was great to have such a nice restaurant close by. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly and attentive. The view from the outside patio overlooked the lake and was just so relaxing. I want to go back already!

First night in Lake Tahoe. What better than to enjoy a seafood dinner over looking the Lake. Well the view was nice, but can't say much about the food. Let me start off by saying everything came out cold. My husband who loves Cioppino asked to sample the broth. It's all about the broth. The chief denied that request. Sure... More

My sandwich did not even stand a chance... The balcony spot we scored was great and the service was very impressionable.

The location is great, but the food is not memorable enough to offset the sketchy service. The staff was nice but inept ( to his credit, the bus boy kept bringing us sodas to keep us occupied) . I'm not sure if the problem was with the kitchen or the wait staff, but I'm not going back to find out.... More

The Boathouse is a great place to go for dinner, especially for the view of the sunset over the Lake. Try to get a table outside (there are limited numbers so you may need to wait inside at the bar until one becomes available). We had salmon (a tad overcooked for my taste, but I like it on the rare... More
