We were able to walk up Ski Run Blvd in a couple minutes and get here. Nice casual outdoor seating (chairs could be improved). Fantastic soups and unique menu including ciopinno and beef burgandy with tons of beef.

Was recommended to eat here, by a nearby lodge. Very neat place,very clean,we sat outside under the pine trees amongst the native mountain foliage,ferns,wild flowers and such, but the food is pricey and the food is very average,nothing to brag about and not worth going back or recommending anyone to this place. I had a hamburger, my wife had chicken... More

Nice restaurant close to our hotel. Enjoyed outdoor seating. Mixed reviews on the food. My husband loved his salmon and quinoa. The pizza dough on the pepperoni pizza seemed doughy rather than crispy. Toppings were good though. I would go again but would order something different than the pizza.

My husband and I ate dinner there. I got the fish and chips. The batter on the fish was perfect - not too thick and not greasy at all, just crispy. It was also a large serving of fish. It was probably one of the best fish and chips I've ever eaten, and I've eaten a lot of fish and... More

We arrived just as the the restaurant open. We sat on their beautiful front lawn, where they had a water bowl ready for our dog. They have a very friendly staff and some of the best burgers we've tried!

Sat outside had the pepperoni pizza which was great. Also the salmon with quinoa was very good. Maybe ten beers on tap more in bottles. Server was polite and good.

Nice spot when arriving in Lake Tahoe-late lunch a Saturday afternoon. Kids & adults all found healthy favorites-pizza, turkey wraps, and burgers. Portions were nice sized too! Great food with a comfortable eclectic atmosphere!

Arrived late on a Thursday night very tired from a long plane ride. The cod was good and the kale slaw was pretty but tasteless. The ribs were OK but the garlic mashed were also bland. I ordered a Moscow mule that was served in a fruit jar. also very weak and tasteless. Staff were friendly, but the meal fell... More

We enjoy going to small restaurants off the main drag of Tahoe because they feel much more relaxed. This café is located on Ski Run Blvd, and was easy walking from the place we stayed at for a few days. Also, on Friday nights the Framers Market is set up right in front! We had dinner during the week and... More
