visiting late July 2012-good places to eat

I went to SLT once before about 5 years ago...couldn't find a good restaurant easily. I didn't do much research before...my bad, but I am looking for good food and atmosphere. Nice steaks, salmon, and good drinks...fun atmosphere, but not for children please. We like to have a couple of drinks, then a nice dinner...not dressy though. Anyone have ideas? I hear there are a few places in the casino's, which we didn't check out last time as we don't gamble, so didn't really think about it. Your help is greatly appreciated. Going within the last 10 days of July

You are going to have a hard time totally avoiding kids, they are vacationing in summer with their families.

The Lone Eagle Grill in Incline Village sits on the lake. There is a fire pit out front to sit around and have cocktails The best steaks we've had are there, and at The Sage Room Steak House inside Harvey's Casino at Stateline.

The best salmon is at Wild Alaskan in Incline Village

Riva Grill is really a good time. Fun to sit out on the deck and watch the sun set.

McP's Irish Pub is lots of fun:

The lounge at 19 Kitchen has beautiful views from the top floor:

Evans is probably the best non-casino restaurant in SLT. I've never seen any kids there. Not a good view though. Fresh Catch at Tahoe has decent (OK but not great) food and is on the lake. I don't remember seeing kids there and have been there several times. If you want a nice view go to Harrah's or Harvey's and eat at one of the top-of-the-hotel restaurants. Harrahs has two restaurants on the upper floors (not counting the Forest Buffet)---- one is moderate and one is expensive. Both have a decent view.

Thanks for the input! I probably shouldn't have singled out the children, I just wanted more of an adult place to go...usually better food too! I love kids, but I thought if I said I would prefer no or not many children I would eliminate places like Denny's, etc! LOL!! I can't wait to go, I have received lots of suggestions, now I have to narrow it down...only going to be there 3 nights!
