If you are staying in the South Lake Tahoe area, you must eat at this restaurant located at the longest pier in the lake, enjoy a lovely view of the lake and the mountains, but actually the food was great and the service lovely. Their happy hour includes some items in the menu too.

The lobster bisque was exceptional. The Caprese salad was amazing......indoor and outdoor seating. Simple, yet fun and excellent food and service. Dining lakeside with a view of the mountains......will definitely return when we visit Lake Tahoe again next year!

Great views in summer or winter. This establishment is clearly overshadowed by the spectacular views. The food is not bad; the drinks and service are about like you'd expect, and the patio area is an amazing place to enjoy this place.

This should be on the short list for a place to watch the sunset, enjoy great food, drinks, and service! And live entertainment! All the food was wonderful! Go for crabcake appetizer and try the ribeye if you are okay with drooling as the waiter serves you the plate! They have half price appetizers and special drinks for sunset as... More

The wife and I took an old friend there for luncheon Tuesday the 17th. Seating was easy, seat yourself. The waitress was very nice, took our order and it arrived soon after. I had the fish and chips, the chip were the sweet potato fries. They were very tasty. The wife had the crab cake sandwich. It had a goodly... More

while traveling in South Lake Tahoe, we were advised to try a new restaurant that we had not been to before. First off, it is right in the downtown area, so that it is easy to get to. You could def. eat there all four seasons and there is outside seating weather permitting. The menu has various selections. I had... More

You can tell when a restaurant is well-run by the staff. The people who work at the Boathouse are top-notch. We decided to sit at a tall table near the bar so we would be closer to the music and that worked out perfectly. We were served by the bartender and she was terrific. In fact, her friendly, efficient service... More

We had a Groupon that was supposed to allow us to have two "sun-setter" sippers - a mixed drink. We don't drink many of these and asked to use it for beer and wine and were told No because they were more expensive. It would have been better service if they could just have given us credit towards the beer... More

The service here was good. The place was small, right on the pier at the Beach Retreat and Lodge which was very inviting and such a great location! The food was good but unfortunately not good enough for the price. Pricey! I had a roasted beet salad with very few beets--I asked for more, mostly greens, and a cup of... More
