Great Food and View

I've been coming here for many years; the food and service is always great. This time I felt the staff brought out the courses a little too soon before we had finished the previous, but it's still a 4. Food and wine prices are on par with the area and the bartender makes a great dirty martini.

The restaurant is on Ski Way above Incline with view of mountains and lake. The bar is a good way to start with a bartender who knows what he's doing. The menu is well thought out so we started with mussels and pork belly which were outstanding. Then lamb rack and fried chicken to end with chocolate torte. This is... More

We consider this our "local." Go there every chance we get. Love sitting in the bar area for a casual meal or in the dining room for a more upscale dinner.

A fine dining restaurant in a forest setting that provides a filtered view (as realtors here like to say) of Lake Tahoe. That said, it fell far short of what one would expect from this kind of establishment when we dined there recently. We were seated and our party of six placed our orders which included two Caesar salads. The... More

This is one of the better places to eat in Incline. If you go and can sit at the bar I suggest it Jeremy is a riot. Best Burger around too!

Incline is fortunate to have a handful of very good restaurants. This is one of them that you should try. They have Lake and open space views, the food is good, the service is superb and the ambience was soothing. They have a great bar and more terrific views. The owner/host was delightful and made you feel welcomed. They have... More

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.
