The sliders and wings were great, as were the burgers. They have beers on tap outside on the patio, but DO NOT HAVE SEATING for those seeking just a beer. They have 4 bar stools and a fire place with a few chairs. The waitress bit our heads off for sitting at a small table with our beers from the... More

Nice live music outside on a sunny afternoon in South Lake Tahoe. Sliders, bison chili, and nachos - a well rounded meal. Lots of spring skiers wandering by.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Tahoe. The food was amazing both times and the service was great. There are a lot of options for vegan/vegetarian customers which is a bonus. Would love to visit again.

Stopped in for lunch and enjoyed the clam chowder and bison burger. Came in right at opening time so there was no wait for a table

It's an obvious place for an après-ski drink - great location, and doing a roaring trade at 4 pm. Outside space and in, and they accommodate drinkers who are not eating, although you have to sit at the bar or round one of the fire-pits. One quibble - I would have liked an instant savoury snack (nuts, crisps/chips, etc) to... More

We had the best time at this place. They have great food, great drinks and great ambiance. It's a popular spot located right in front of the Heavenly Gondola. Although the wait time was 45 minutes for 2 people at outdoor seating it was definitely worth it. They took down our phone number and we were able to continue browsing... More

Diverse menu, live music, unique drinks and great service. Happy hour prices. Located where the old Wolfgang Pucks used to be, under the Gondola adjacent to the Heavenly Village fountain. The Bloody Mary with crispy bacon, veggies and dill salted rim is almost a meal in itself. Try the Tower 16 “Poke” appetizer with seasoned wasabi flour chips, you won’t... More
