“Incredible food and great atmospere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2011

We ate at spindleshanks the first night we stayed in Tahoe City and the food could not have been better. I had the marinated grilled flank steak with ranchero and I can honestly say that I have not had a better steak ever. The wine list was great and the live music made the whole night out just great.

“Absolutely Fabulous !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2011

We knew we were in for a great meal the second our dishes were placed in front of us. We could just tell so. The quality of the food doesn't match the rather 'plain appearing' menus, or the cozey local atmosphere. Good size portions of an incredible recipe is what were treated to. Great wine selection also. Excellent value to boot! We'll be back for sure next time were in Tahoe. Our best meal of the week while we were here!

“Best Happy Hour on Northshore with views of Lake from Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

I love going to Spindleshanks for their half price happy hour menus and discounted flights of wine. Service is always friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. Favorite plays for girls night out.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2010

Very good food, very good wine list. Service was friendly and quick. $10 wine flights are a particular bargain. All good!
