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

The pizza was tremendous -- thin crust and piled high. Taste fantastic. Beer was excellent and served promptly as was the pizza. TV's all around. It's a little noisy as the locals hang out here. Only downside is that it is up the Grade in Stateline and not on the strip or the village, so you will need to drive... More

A loud atmosphere with friendly staff. Large menu with big portions at reasonable prices. Server was friendly, but not efficient, brought our entrees before our appetizer. Had to wait a long time to receive the check when we were ready to go. A decent choice if you want an expensive meal with lots to choose from on the menu.

Local hangout, old style sports bar, food is good quality, portions are hugh, prices low, located at the bottom of Kingsbury Grade. Friendly staff, easy going atmosphere, several big screen TV's tuned to sports and weather. Same owners for many years

This is a tavern so its not fancy, but the food is good tavern fare, the prices are reasonable and its located at state line. If your expectations are of finding a good spot for good food with a reasonable price tag - not easy to find in south lake Tahoe, then Mott Canyon is a good spot.

You truly cannot go wrong with Mott Canyon. It is my families "go to" place when we want an inexpensive meal, a drink, and even better atmosphere. I honestly think between us, we have had everything on the menu and have never been dissapointed. Last time we were there, I had my favorite Bacon and Bleu burger, which had some... More

We had their prime rib sandwich and it was wonderful and so tender. Bar had a nice atmosphere and very friendly staff too. We will be sure to go back soon.
