The view is spectacular at the Big Water Grille and the food is the same. This restaurant is perched high on the side of a mountain overlooking Lake Tahoe. The dining experience is elegant without a feeling of snootiness. You can be just as comfortable in shorts as you would be in slacks. The entree portions were quite large and... More

We had a wonderful dinner in the dining room overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe; and the large windows surrounding the dining area allowed us a beautiful sunset view. They have lovely specials and we chose the halibut which was succulent and delicious. Although the review of the restaurant showded $$$, I didn't find it to be that expensive. The wait staff... More

Just attended a lovely wedding and reception at this restaurant. The food was great. I especially enjoyed the tuna passed appetizers and the tribes. The staff was attentive and helpful. There was never a wait at the bar and the bartender had great suggestions.

My husband and I have eaten here many times over the last five years. We had been pleased with the food and the service in the past but not this visit. We have been there during off-season as well as high season (summer), so we have seen the restaurant and its service function at a lull and at a chaotic... More

Great view and atmosphere with delicious food. Excellent cocktails and wine list and the ribeye is a must have for meat eaters. My husband and father both had it and I was a silly female and ordered the halibut which was delicious but if I could do it again I'd also go for the meat. Our server recommended it and... More

I was told the chef was from GA so I had to try the fried chicken. It was very good. My wife had the fish and it was excellent too. Waiter was helpful and had a great attitude. We had a nice dinner. The place isnt elegant but its very nice. Lets call it casual but classy. I highly recommend.

I've eaten here more times than I can count. It is always outstanding and the artwork is beautiful. The fish is amazing and fresh. The service has always been great. This is our "go to" restaurant in Lake Tahoe. Enjoy!

Big Water is endlessly going through ups and downs in the kitchen and appears to be back up again. Love the bar!

While the food is almost always terrific, and the service is always dependable, there have been some misses with BWG. One time the fired chicken was dry, on another it wasn't. I guess inconsistent is the word I am looking for. Before I gave up red meat, my favorite was the smoked rib eye. Last time I had the halibut... More

The food was decent, staff was friendly , view is beautiful- nothing to write home about though. Menu is limited and pricey. Go to lone eagle grill- same type of place except better view better food better service and much more for the same price
