Description: Locally owned and operated since 2004, Off the Hook has quickly become the locals' favorite spot for delicious food in a fun, upbeat, inviting atmosphere. Far from a traditional sushi restaurant, this California-style sushi bar puts a Western twist on an ancient Eastern food idea, offering so many unique flavors and ingredients you won't find anywhere else. There are over 40 rolls on the menu, but the Dragon Balls, Fire in the Sky and Gambler are a must try. The sushi is undeniably fresh as the chefs take the utmost care in breaking down and preparing the best quality fish available from whole into delectable bites for their customers. If sushi isn't your thing, the menu also includes a variety of cooked items, such as Tempura, Teriyaki, Bento Boxes, Udon Noodle Bowls, and cooked fish entrees. You'll even find Honey Walnut Prawns, Ahi Poke Salad, and Korean-Style Kalbi Ribs. The homemade desserts (tempura green tea ice-cream!)and extensive sake selection are as equally enticing! Located right in the middle of town on Highway 50, Off the Hook continues to strive to be a casual, yet high qaulity restaurant, cutting no corners when it comes to the customers' dining experience. Find out for yourself why Off the Hook has been voted "Best Sushi" by Tahoe locals for the last six years! Check out their Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4:30 - 6 pm where many of their rolls, appetizers and drinks are discounted.

“Excellent sushi especially for vegetarians and vegans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I actually had 3 veggie rolls that were the most creative delicious veggie rolls I've ever had. My husband hand one of the specialty fish rolls, and while he said it was very delicious, he actually liked my veggie rolls better. Everything was fresh and delicious!

“Fresh, fun and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Off The Hook Sushi has the old favorites and new things that you will not be disappointed with. The owner, Chi, was serving us at the sushi bar, very nice guy, they were really busy and he still took time to make sure everything was to our liking. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this place and the food was great and reasonably priced, definitely going back.

“Mediocre sushi with a high price tag.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Sign stay way - No Japanese people work here! Well, at least no one visible. Maybe they were washing the dishes?

FOOD:
- Tuna Tataki: Seared tuna with a sesame crust. Sounded great but it was so bland. This is the first time I picked at the vegetables before finishing the fish.
- High Roller Roll: The spicy scallops is what really made this roll. Well more so the spicy part which tasted like a sriracha mayo.
- Sugar Mama: Overall, quite bland in flavor. The fish itself was above average.

Thanks for the Yelp check-in for a free hot sake that made my experience slightly better.

A very forgettable experience with even more forgettable sushi. SKIP IT!
