“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went here for dinner on Christmas. The food was excellent and the service too. Loved it! What a pleasant surprise in an old casino. I saw good recviews and thought I'd give it a try - we lucked out! It's very retro, w/o being intentional but they pull it all off!

“Excellent meal and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We were at South Shore Tahoe between Christmas and New Years, a very busy time in Tahoe. Our friends recommended the Timber House, which they eat at every time they are in Tahoe ( a lot!). We were not disappointed. The restaurant is in the Lakeside Inn Casino, over the state line on the NV side. It is not within walking distance from the gondola (we stayed at Marriott), but it was just a short drive of about a mile (or less ?) & they have a parking lot. The restaurant is upstairs through the casino & we are not used to cigarette smoke, so that was a little rough. If the smoke bothers you, ask for a table in the back room (which we did) and there was no smoke issue for us there. The service was exceptional all around. The food was also exceptional. I have a dairy allergy, so I had the lamb & the server graciously accommodated me by substituting a baked potato (vs. mashed) & added bacon bits and chives to it, steamed the broccoli (vs. sauteed) & asked the chef to omit the crust (butter in it). The lamb & gravy were so good, I didn't miss a thing on flavor. My husband had the short ribs, which he said was delicious and our teen son had the steak from their "small menu" (don't let the title fool you - huge portion for $10!) which came with mashed potatoes and veg. Being from Hawaii, we thought the prices were very reasonable & a great value for the amount of food we got. We will definitely go back when in South Shore Tahoe.

“Christmas Eve Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My husband and I were here on Christmas Eve and decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal. It is on the pricier side, but was definitely worth it. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

“Fabulous food, well worth a visit (decor could use an update).”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

First for the decor; think 1970's diner. That is really the only downside we found to this wonderful restaurant.

We've been coming to this locals favorite for years and have always been very pleased with the food and the value.

The food is delicious, high-end and a terrific value. The filet was fabulous with the bearnaise sauce. The french onion soup was delicious. They also have some terrific sandwiches and outstanding gourmet burgers.

You'll find the place packed with locals (always a good sign). The casino is small but very friendly (again, a local's favorite).

Well worth a visit.
