“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

I would really recommend this place when visiting Lake Tahoe. Great nachos, wings, and burgers. Not too far from the casinos but you definitely need to drive not walk. Super friendly service and reasonable prices. Maybe 49 for a burger? I forget really but get the nachos and split it among two people. We did one of the times, do big guys and it was plenty when washed down with a draft watching sports on the tv. Highly recommend.

“Wings and Locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We enjoyed the locals, wings, and kind service. It's a very casual dive bar that has neat historical decor hung around the room. Great pricing. The wings, pizza, and burgers are all great after a long day skiing. The Chipotle Aioli sauce with our french fries was yummy. It's fast and easy if you need a quick place for lunch, and offers a place to sit and talk all night as well. It's just a short trip up from Heavenly. Check it out!

“Home away from home for a dark pub with good food luvin' girl. :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Not really that dark, but definitely good pub food. I suggest the home-made kettle chips instead of fries. My husbands burger was a little small, but he enjoyed the taste. I had the 49er sandwich, and loved it. It was a bit much so that worked out well for my husband. He doesn't like 1000 island, but tried it anyway and really liked the flavor of the sandwich. We will stop here again when we are in he neighborhood.

“Sit out back and enjoy life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Stopped here 3 times while in town for a bachlor party. Sat out back each time and so nice to just sit have a beer. Food was very solid each time Pizza, French Dip and Old 49er. First stop we did not know it was happy hour and were blown away by the size of the beer for just a couple bucks. This is for sure a place to stop at and when you get there go in the front door and right out the back door.

“Average pizza but great salad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We ordered a cheese pizza and salad. The salad was delicious - fresh and delicious. The pizza was not very tasty and I don't think it was cooked completely. Since we had it as take out there was no complaining to the chef!
