First rate breakfast in Kings Beach

Breakfast is fantastic. Sit outside if the weather allows. They have plenty of shaded areas and you can watch the golfers tee off.

I first ate at this location at a restaurant under a different name. The location and wonderful terrace deck with view made it a highlight! The wife and I were in town for our 47 anniversary on September 21 when locals recommended Spindleshanks at the Edgewood Golf Course. We went, we ate and it was tremendous. I had the grilled...

We used to live this restaurant while in Tahoe Vista and we're always wanting to visit the Kings Beach location. We did and while the patio is nice giving filtered lake views or golf views, the food was marginal. We had 3 appetizers and an entree, all of which we just ok all with some positives and negatives. Service was... More

I read the reviews tonight before going and almost didn't go based on some of them but our friends said it was good so we went. I'd been to the Spindleshanks down the road before years ago but now it's at the Old Brockway golf course so I don't know what's going on. Anyway, food was great. They have schnitzel... More

Not the best. I ordered chicken and it was raw. Not impressed. Went with friends and tried some of their food and was not impressed.

Same good menu as they had at their previous location. Nice deck seating, with bocce ball courts, golf putting green. Might have been a bad day - but the wait staff could have done better. We have enjoyed many good meals at their previous location, and will come again. Wedge salad was always a favorite here - it was disappointing... More

This restaurant is located on a lower end golf course. The dining area is small, but it has outdoor seating and seating also in the bar area. This is not a classy restaurant, it feels more like a Greasy Spoon Cafe, with wooden tables and chairs like a country store. The day we were there, they were setting up entertainment... More

My husband and I ate here one night during a recent Tahoe vacation. We sat on the deck on a night that was cooler. There is seating inside, but almost everyone was out on the deck that night as it was pleasant and enjoyable. Umbrellas protect you from rain and sun, and you have a partial view of the golf...

Had lunch recently with my wife and it was our first time here. The service was good and the location nice. I understand that they have moved here somewhat recently. I think that the reputation is for fine dining and I found my lunch to be good but not gourmet. The price however is reasonable and they do have outdoor... More
