Best Wings at Lake Tahoe!

Great friendly service from our bartender. Even when he got slammed he still made time for us out of towners (this is a locals bar). Good menu with a few surprises...calm relaxed atmosphere. Nice place to grab an afternoon pint. Late night menu and two for one drink special s.

My wife and try to visit here 5 or 6 times a year while we are in South Lake Tahoe. Really friendly staff here. I have met both owners and they really work hard to satisfy their customer's needs. Full bar, wine and 14 beers on tap. Multiple flat screen TV's to watch sporting events and they also have approximately... More

It was very good place off the main path. It was really good food and the prices were very fair for the portion and good alcohol selection!

Really great burgers but there is a much nicer selection of food than what you might think with a place that has "Tavern" in it's name. Serving are universally generous and very tasty! Great & super- friendly bar scene (lots of locals). Casual is the "word: for both the dress & the decor.

Our hotel steered us to this locals place just off the main drag and it was awesome! The bartender was super friendly & efficient, and knew almost everyone who came in. Food was great and portions were generous. Loved this place!!

Adding to my review from last year. Went again to Mott Canyon with my family and had another great value meal. The spicy wings were particularly good. Had the IPAD beer that I could not pronounce, Itchi...... something which was really good. As I said last time, I will undoubtedly visit again.

We live about a mile from Mott Canyon Grill and it's one of my daughter's favorites. We all love the Reuben, the fries are excellent, the red and blue potato salad is my favorite. Sometimes a little too loud for me, the music is always blaring, would be nice if they had it a little lower during main dining hours... More

Stopped by for a quick beer and decided to have some wings. Quite a nice surprise! The wings had nice and tasty crispy outside, moist and delicious inside. The large portion was served with two dipping sauces. For those who partake of Delta Dining Rewards, this is the only place in Tahoe that's part of the program. I'll be back--for... More

Arrived at our suite late, and they recommended Mott Canyon. There was only one person serving both bar and eating area, but service was prompt and friendly. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich and my wife ordered a BLTA (A for avocado). Both meals were really good for bar food, slaw was tasty too. Had a good variety of draft... More

Have been travelling to Lake Tahoe for many years now and my sons have it as a firm favourite. probably because of the connection to Mott canyon in the Heavenly Ski Resort on the Nevada side. They (and I) like the sports theme. The staff were friendly and the place normally quite lively. The food was good, the portions were... More
