Pizza, beers and appetizers. We make this one of our dinner choices whenever we make it up to Tahoe. It's always busy, because the food is good, hot and prompt. They usually have entertainment in the evenings and games of cornhole out front while you wait for a table. Everything we have had here is good. We love the BBQ... More

One of the few places in South Lake Tahoe to get a decent pizza. I got pepperoni pizza and it was full of pepperoni's and tasted great. My wife loved her salad and she's really picky.

Delicious pizza! Even better than we expected. Our waiter encouraged us to try the Thai curry pizza and we thought it might be weird but it was great. We'd definitely go again.

We drove over to Heavenly to check out the shops and restaurants and ended up eating lunch at Base Camp Pizza Co. We sat outside in the covered patio and had a good server who brought drinks right out. We had delicious pizza as well as a couple of appetizers which were prepared very well. We had Hummus and Pita... More

I went for dinner around 5.15 and it was just starting to get crowded. Wait time for outside was up to almost a half-hour. I was willing to sit at one of the high tops in the bar area. Food was delicious (personal pan fireroasted veggie pizza) and no excessive wait time. Waitstaff friendly and curteous. Total for pizza" and... More

We spent the day at Heavenly and we're famished. The weather was perfect to sit outdoors, and there was an acoustic band playing country rock/pop. Not too loud, but fun for kids. Our server was awesome. So attentive and patient with the kids, and indecisive Dads! We ordered the Garlic Chips and Garlic Cheese Bread to start. Loved the chips,... More

This place was such a huge positive for me and my crew. Hiking the PCT, we all were a bit anxious with all the people around. The entire staff made us feel at home. From the hostess to the server to the bartender, all had smiles, eager to help and all had a super positive attitude. Will come here each... More
