The restaurant is quite small. Food was good. Nice atmosphere in a good location over the water. I would eat here again.

The sandwich was dry. It took two hours for a lunch that should have been one hour. The servers that were off work, were... More

We had dinner here when staying at the adjoining Beach Resort and Lodge. Beautiful setting to watch a sunset over the lake. Food was fine but nothing to write home about. Sauces on seafood dishes were a little heavy on the cream counteracting the seafood taste. Note that, at outside tables, it can get a little windy but worth it... More

Stayed at the hotel and chose to eat here twice. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Food was superb. My husband and I opted for the baked brie with garlic and honey as an appetiser. It was delicious and I had one of the best steaks I have eaten in a long while. The meals are not particularly cheap but... More

Took our son and his wife here for father's day. Five dollar Mimosas and Bloody Marys were a hit. Moderate selection of menu items from crab eggs benedict to cuban sandwich. I had the chilequilles and they were scrumptious, spicy and very filling. It's right on the pier and you have a great view of the lake. Would definitely eat... More

The Boathouse on the Pier was a pleasant surprise. Located behind the Tahoe Retreat Resort, it's right on the lake with beautiful views of the sunset over the Lake. It's very small so you'll need a reservation unless you go before 6:00 PM. I had the lobster tail and my wife had the scallops. The lobster was very good especially... More

The Boathouse on the Pier is located on a pier extending into Lake Tahoe. The restaurant is located on behind the Beach Retreat & Lodge and is on the second floor of the pier building with a great view of Lake Tahoe looking west. We had a reservation (the place is fairly small and was almost full when we arrived)... More

We got married in Lake Tahoe so went there for our 25th wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with the service and the staff. Our food was great and the wine excellent. It made for a great anniversary celebration. I would recommend it highly.

We enjoyed our dinner as the food and service were very good. The New York steak was great, but the price was a little high for a steak with french fryes as the side dish.
