Parking is good. Lighting in the parking us poor. Reception was professional but a bit cold. Noise level is high inside. Outside is very serene and relaxing. Menu is interesting. Food was fresh with good presentation. Service was outstanding. That made it all very enjoyable. Rare in Tahoe. A bit pricey but worth the visit.

We had dinner early in the evening a little after 5. None of the staff seemed to want to be there, no one was smiling, and they were going through the motions. The restaurant was less than half full, as we were wanting to avoid a crowded Friday night. The service was a little slow, but once we got our... More

Hello, Although your review states that several parts of your experience were enjoyable, it is disappointing to hear that others were not. At 5pm we are transitioning AM to PM staff and often our staff is focusing on what tables need to be greeted while on the transition, that being said it is no excuse for any guest to feel... More

I ate here twice in a 4 day span. The food was well prepared, delicious and original in many respects. I had the sausage platter and sirloin platter which both get a thumbs up from me. Many beers available. Reasonably priced and very casual.

Visited twice--once for afternoon drinks and snacks and then again at dinner. Friendly waitstaff. Enjoyed the beer selections. Food was good and filling. Generous portions.

This is what you might expect from a small town brewery. The staff is very friendly and very eager to make sure you're having a good time. The food was very good, it took a little while to get to us, we came in about an hour before the restaurant closed and the restaurant wasn't very full. The food was... More

The service here was as I expected small town service to be. Super willing to please, server went over and beyond to make sure my crew was fed and filled with tasty beer in a timely fashion. "Capa" was a smooth, refreshing beer for a hot day. Grilled cheese with avo, super grind, burgers and calzones as well. Good portions... More

We had a difficult time finding the restaurant as the place is hidden in the trees & not well marked. However once found we were very pleased. The food was excellent. Pulled pork sandwich was so good we came back the next day & ordered one again! Waiter was friendly but way overworked. We had to track him down to... More

We had a family supper here and everyone really enjoyed their food. Portabella sandwich was the best!! My one son got a burger and the other got pulled pork. They both loved it. We sat outside in the shade which was perfect!!

The food was so tasty but served cold. We were a party of 4 and order a variety of food to share: soup (excellent!), rib dinner (served luke warm with cold mashed potatoes), and meat/cheese plate (good). The atmosphere is fun. There seemed to be a shortage of wait staff as we had a long wait for service. I do... More
