This place (Lake is mile away) advertises in the local papers that they have the loosest slots....I found no credibility to this statement and therefore - highly INVALID claim. More like "the Loosest teeth in their staff" - I found to be extremely valid!!! And did I mention definitely the smokiest casino in the entire U.S. I'm convinced of this... More

Thanks for visiting Lakeside Inn and Casino. Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy yourself on your Tahoe vacation. We understand that it's frustrating to be "mad on vacation" and we apologize if we played a factor in that. We have air filtration systems placed throughout the casino to help eliminate smoke. Have safe travels back to the two biggest... More

I went here to play poker while staying a short distance away. This is a nice poker room, with mostly locals playing each night. They are very friendly and treated me as if I was a regular. The food in the cafe is surprisingly good and very inexpensive. I will go back.

This is the " down home " place for the locals, so the food is good. A little to much smoke for me. Odds seem a tad bit better here than the big stateline casinos. A tad off the beaten path , but no big deal. Good over-all for fun.

Wed. nite offers poker night for anyone (over 21). $25 buy-in and they will teach you how to play the hour before. Blackjack tables the cheapest in the area. Good for some fun gambling.

Went there after going to a concert at Harvey's. Wanted something small and cheap and came across their after midnight breakfast deal. It was a really cheap price and the food was really good.

We go to the Lakeside every year, usually for their steak/prime rib, but this time we went for lunch. There were 4-5 specials, including pulled pork sandwich, fancy hamburger. Three of the specials were preceded by a delicious soup, which had a chile taste. We all loved it.

The restaurant prices are so very reasonable...my breakfast was $4.99 and my husband's steak and eggs was less than $10! The casino promotes itself as the "loosest slots in Tahoe" but we did not find that to be the case! But definitely try the restaurant, the service and food were good and the prices are unbeatable.
