This restaurant has a good view and decor. The pine trees are growing and blocking the panoramic view of the lake, but the filtered view is still beautiful. We ordered cat fish and, steak and some appetizer. I thought the small portion of the steak was overpriced (@$40) for it's size and taste. But I enjoyed the catfish.

awesome view of the lake in Incline Village. Food good, not great, and service good too. Try to get a reservation during sunset for awesome views of the lake. Or just stop by for drinks and apps at the bar.

The food WAS good, but the prices were exceptionally high and the portions were tiny, so it is not a good value unless you pay through the nose for a larger portion size. Its a beautiful restaurant nestled in the trees above Incline Village, with a nice view of the lake, but there's something that strikes me about a place... More

On the road to Diamond Peak ski area, This restaurant has a commanding view of the lake and forest. Sitting on the balcony having drinks and appetizers was lovely. I had the final final drink (chocolate martini) and my husband had Malbec. For food, we had meatloaf sliders on brioche(2 large sandwiches), spring roll with peanut sauce and surf and... More

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.
