Great food and drinks!

Lovely little restaurant right on the lake. Happy hour is awesome, and a must try is the fish tacos and Brie appetizer!

I had a delicious beet salad along with the spectacular view. They will fix meals to go so you can enjoy them on the beach - or stay and take in the view from their deck. Allow extra time if you go during the busiest hours.

We ate here because we had a $15 meal voucher from our hotel. We got to sit on the porch, so the lake view was fun. My fish and chips was average (obviously frozen and then fried). My friend thought her salad was also average. Our waiter was definitely not interested in his job. I will not go back to... More

First I have to say the food was delicious and deserves a higher rating. I rated it low because of the service was the worst that I have ever had. When entering the restaurant you have to walk past the kitchen and the staff was joking around with each other saying "blow me", not exactly what you want to hear.... More

I would first warn you that this establishment has a quite small kitchen which limits their ability to serve quickly when they have many customers i.e., weekend lunch and dinner. That being said, if you don't mind having an extra glass of your favorite beverage, sit back, relax, enjoy the view of beautiful Lake Tahoe, and a delicious meal will... More

Other than the view and the drinks (which were the only saving grace of this experience), this experience was awful. The food took over an hour to come out and we ordered a salad, a kids meal and the crab cakes. The kids meal took too long to come out (more than an hour) considering that we explained to our...

We were a group of 60 people, half retirees, looking for a place for lunch during our trip to Lake Tahoe, Reno & Virginia City. Thanks to Lori, the catering manager, instead of eating inside the Boathouse, a beautiful venue was set up right on the shores with white tent & white chairs and great food. Our friends from all...

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is very good. There are two outside seating areas, at picnic tables on the pier or on the second floor patio, both overlooking the lake. We were in the mood for a burger and we were very happy. The meat was perfectly cooked and the brioch bun held up to all... More

We sat outside on the small patio. Our server was more than accommodating. Service was friendly and casual and the food better than you'd expect with such a view. We shared a tuna tartar for a starter and I had a pork chop stuffed with house made andouille sausage, while my wife had an impeccably fresh and well--prepared fish. Without... More
