Craft & Quality

Stopped in for treats after cruising on Lake Tahoe. The location is just out of S.Lake, headed towards CA. A nice, low key kind of place, lots of glass and easy parking. Had three appetizers and Pliny the Elder on tap. This might be the only place in all of the Lake area with Pliny on tap... read more

Food is very fresh and yummy! Big variety. Nice choice of craft beers. Best of all is the dining on the roof watching the sun set over Lake Tahoe!!

Stopped by for lunch mainly for the view of Lake Tahoe. Food and service was top notch. We had the fish and chips with halibut and it was off the charts-cooked perfectly and served with a sesame cole slaw. I would go back in a heartbeatr.

Great fresh dishes and best beer selection in South Lake Tahoe (Pliny, Deschutes Pinedrop). Great atmosphere with a Hawaiian theme. Don't let the shopping center stop you. Love it here!!

Nice local place that you wouldn't just come across since it is in a building with a lot of other storefronts. But if you happen to find your way there, you won't be disappointed. My husband is "vegan before 6" (ala Mark Bittman), which sometimes makes it difficult to find places to eat. Freshies has the vegan and gluten-free menus... More

If you want an affordable and very nice, informal meal with a view, in South Lake Tahoe, head upstairs onto the patio, and enjoy a terrific meal under the umbrellas while enjoying the killer view of the lake! Prices are moderate, food is terrific, beers are great, and life is good, at Freshies! It's one of our few 'go-to' lunch... More

Excellent food and service. Also very kid friendly and had hot apple cider. My sister and 3 children all do not eat gluten and we found that the entire menu is gluten free!

We followed a recommendation to go to Freshies and we really were glad that we did. The chicken taco that my husband had has some sort of sauce on it that was amazing. The fresh salsa for his chips was really good, I was sort of wishing I'd ordered what he had. And the beans were honestly the best that... More

We were looking for a light lunch and the concierge at the hotel recommended the crunch salad. She said it was her favorite. We tried it and fell in love with it. They were a little hard to find at first, but once you find it, you'll keep going back....
