About
Locally owned and operated since 2004, Off the Hook has quickly become the locals' favorite spot for delicious food in a fun, upbeat, inviting atmosphere. Far from a traditional sushi restaurant, this California-style sushi bar puts a Western twist on an ancient Eastern food idea, offering so many unique flavors and ingredients you won't find anywhere else. There are over 40 rolls on the menu, but the Dragon Balls, Fire in the Sky and Gambler are a must try. The sushi is undeniably fresh as the chefs take the utmost care in breaking down and preparing the best quality fish available from whole into delectable bites for their customers. If sushi isn't your thing, the menu also includes a variety

Best meal we ate in Tahoe. The sushi was some of the best I've ever had and prices were reasonable. Will certainly return. One thing to note was that the sushi chef in front of us was pretty rude.

Great sushi. Creative without losing the traditional craft and flavors. It can be busy but the service is excellent and the prices reasonable. "A Roll Called Wanda" and the "Dynamite Shrimp" are my favorites. They also have Japanese beer on tap. The crowd is upbeat...More

I should have stuck with the sushi, I suppose, but I wanted soup. Unfortunately, the broth was so salty, that I couldn't finish it. The sushi looked fine, and the sushi chefs were attentive....as I was sitting at the bar.....but......too bad.
