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

Lovely food, freshly cooked and very tasty. Portions not too large neither too expensive. The location was amazing. We sat upstairs outside and although the sun was shining in our eyes initially we were witness to a most amazing sunset that was reflected in the lake as well. It was awesome. Service was a little slow but worth the wait.... More

Went twice to this restaurant during our two day stay at Lake Tahoe. The setting on the pier is brilliant with the most amazing view on the lake, particularly during sunset. Try to get a table on the balcony! Food is of very good quality, reasonably prices and also staff is friendly and attentive. Whole family (2 kids and 2... More

After my problems with Riva Grill (see separate review), we decided on this restaurant, on a pier right on the lake. The restaurant is small and does not take reservations. So go early, especially if you are a group of more than 4 persons (we were 7), as all the tables are for 2-4 persons. The delightful hostess, Brianna, allowed... More
