“A very good restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Went to Captain Jon's today for lunch with my wife and four friends. After being seated, we enjoyed the view of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. The waiter came and we ordered two bottles of wine, the burger, quesadilla, ahi sandwich, fish tacos, wedge salad, and the fish & chips. All items were cooked well and tasted excellent. The waiter seemed new, but was very friendly and obliging to any and all requests from us. I would, and will be returning to Captain Jon's in the near future.

“Lunch on the lake”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stopped for lunch and shared a turkey club sandwich that came with terrific french fries. Good service, great view. All in all a good lunch but nothing outstanding.

“Only go for the view and possbly a drink. Do not go for the food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This place had nothing of substance to offer except the view. Go to enjoy a drink and the view, but go elsewhere for a good meal. Our salmon crostini appetizer had two small slices of salmon that were so thinly sliced that they were transparent. My scallops arrived at less than room temperature, and the green beans were so tough, they were inedible. My husband's trout was mediocre at best. The waitress did offer us another complimentary glass of wine and dessert, but we declined, and the manager only comped half of the cost of one meal. We found Spindleshaks and Garwoods much better if you are in the North Tahoe area.
