The view, the service, the food are all top notch. Even the the bar is a pleasure for a light meal. It is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere.

Visited after a year's absence. Sat in the cozy bar area by warm fireplace at a pub table with friends. I ordered the pork belly with risotto appetizer, so tender and good I recommended it to other diners who inquired how it was.; my friend ordered what he described as the best fried chicken he has ever had!;, and another...

Last night's dinner was perfect. Sat by the fireplace so the ambiance was warm and quiet. Since we were on diets (a New Year's Resolution), we had the small plate sized entree of Salmon, rice pilaf and fresh vegetables. Another diner had crab cake appetizer and soup. All delicious. We had first stopped by another restaurant which was busy and... More

Service, food and atmosphere are all first rate. If you can dine while the sun is still up, it has one of the best views of the lake making this a must while you are in Incline.

This is the nicest Tahoe area restaurant in the North Shore section of Lake Tahoe. The food ranges from very casual to inventive and surprising elegance. The setting is drop dead Tahoe. You won't get a lake view like this in many places. John and his crew always have a special going on and you won't be disappointed in your... More

My favorite establishment in town. Best bar. Best food. Great view, super friendly staff. This is where us locals go. Martinis and bar menu great for a quick upscale bite to eat.

The location and scenery is amazing. The food is a bit pricey but excellent and the service is always superb. This is a great place to eat dinner in the summer, but a great place to hang out with friends in the winter when you come off the slopes at the Diamond Peak ski area. The bar menu and drinks...

I shot a wedding reception here in October. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was superb but above all the service at this place is out of this world!!!! We made sure to let them know how fantastic they were! It made for a stress free reception for my bride and groom and their guests!

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.
