Very good stop on a trip around Tahoe

Baked Brie to start was excellent. Mahi-Mahi and Crab Cakes were both done very well. Service from Cory was on time and he was always present without being overwhelming. Worth the stop.

First, we're locals and have enjoyed meals here in the past, which is why I wanted to go there for my birthday. Upon seating ourselves out on the deck the busboy was immediately at our table to take drink orders and give us menus. We told him we'd have an iced tea and water until we could order wine for...

We went Father's Day and learned some of the kitchen staff had walked out earlier. No specials as advertised. Chaotic. Nice view of marina. Slow but friendly waiter. Long waits for food. Very good steamed clams app. Our dinner order originally was forgotten and we were given the bill but after our reminder it was prepared and tasty lemon butter... More

My wife had the steak and shrimp, I had the fresh caught MahiMahi. Our bill came to $60. For that price you would expect a little more than water in a plastic cup, no bread and paper napkins. The only food we actually enjoyed was the coconut shrimp.

We're visiting from out of town, we love great food & excellent service at reasonable prices, if you do too this is your place! Portions were huge & food delicious. We had ahi tuna appetizer, excellent! Fish tacos AMAZING! Our waitress was Michelle, has worked here for 30 years, she was delightful. An excellent find.

This used to be a terrific place, always clean and awesome service. Not so much anymore. I could go on and on, however I'm not going to. All I can say is you can pass right by this place. We left before we ordered so can't rate the food.

Fresh Catch food is consistently good and reasonably priced compared to most South Lake Tahoe 'touristy' places. The location in marina is beautiful - right on the lake, and enjoyable in all seasons. On Wednesdays through Saturdays you can enjoy music by one of local groups. It's one of our favorite restaurants in Tahoe.

Considering pub setting, the food is great. The menu looks awesome for fine dinning approach, I didn't went back for dinner so can't comment

The view was nice, we decided to sit outside to have a better experience, but not a good idea. It was mosquito city and very unpleasant . The live music was very nice!! Now to what is most important the food and the service. Well the service was horrible!! The waitress seemed very nice, and made me feel like she... More

Loved the views of the marina, especially at sunset. Drink selections were fine - ordered chardonnay and there were enough wine choices for us. The jazz band started around 7 PM - they played more traditional jazz numbers and they were playing their butts off. Food was just average - okay but not exceptional in any way. Loved the atmosphere,... More
