Stopped here for lunch on a recent trip to Tahoe...food was good,but took forever! Worth a stop, but don't expect fast service!

“Just what we needed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

After a long day of playing in the snow, this little whole-in-the-wall was just what the Dr. ordered. We had gyros, burgers, and onion rings... and it sure hit the spot! Everything was delicious. Our food arrived quickly, despite the fact that there were quite a few people there. We shall return the next time we're in the area!

“An Institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

You must go once. A road side institution, aptly named, The Char Pit was a wonderful stop. Nothing fancy, but burgers, ribs, et al cooked probakly the same way for the last 50 years. Hit the spot, I would recommend.

“Cheeseburger in paradise..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011 via mobile

Great food, good service, expect a wait when there's 30 tickets in front of yours and you waited in line for a while, if you want the quality of food that they offer let it cook and shut up, just enjoy yourself in such a beautiful place...

“Horrble place to visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2010

We have terrible experience there. Because this restaurant is just one in all Sand Harbor Park you have to expect to wait your orders for long time ( around 45 min at least). Personel is so slow and rude including a chef and supervisor .We was waiting for our order ( one salad , one burger and ice cream) during 1 hour and 20 min and after soo long time waiting we asked for our money back. The Screaming supervisor returned just part of our payment and accused us that we had eaten the ice cream already , which we never got ,so we asked her to return rest of our money too. Finally, she said " get out from my restaurant and started screaming on me in front of public that " if we will not leave her restaurant she is going to call to police and police will give our money...." It was very painfull experience in me life. Please never go to this place if you will not be hurt emotionally and physically and take your food with you if you want to visit Sand Harbor Park.
