The service was excellent. The view was great. The food... Well, two out of three was good.Seafood special and the steak superb. The duck was NOT very good, very fat and not crispy and with a mushroom side that was so overpowering that everything tasted awful.

Enjoyable special occasion meal and beautiful setting. Made reservation for just before sunset. The view and meals matched. My wife enjoyed the duck breast and I had an excellent grilled filet (with grilled asparagus).

Definitely recommend this restaurant - the food was great, and the view was incredible. It's a great place to watch the sun set. Staff was very friendly and service was great.

Loved the organic fried chicken. Was enough food we probably could have shared one plate with 3 people. But delicious, excellent service, and a view to die for.

We love Big Water Grille. Tonight, we brought our friends who heard negative reports. They were so impressed that they kept talking about how delicious the food was. They loved that the dressing on the salad was just right and didn't have to request it on the side. They loved that the fish was moist and the sauces delicious. They... More

Eaten here many times and it is a regular stop when in Tahoe area, a great menu that changes with the seasons. Worth a visit when in the Incline area

The food was good, the service was good but the prices were outrageous for what you got. I don't mind paying top dollar if the food is over the top. $14 for a small capresse salad appetizer is too much. Ribeye for $40 seemed over the top for the small portions served. They need to rethink their prices. The view... More

The atmosphere on Sunday night was absolutely perfect for my friend, husband, and I at Big Water Grille! I was so impressed with Ian and Feda's (pronounced Feta...I think) service and knowledge of the menu, and attention to detail at every course. Sometimes as locals are options seem less and less, but now that Big Water Grille is back on... More

Awesome lake views, gorgeous sunsets delicious food. Why would you go anywhere else? We started the evening with huge top shelf martinis and followed by carrot ginger soup. The bowls were huge and could be a meal in itself. Thick, flavorful and delicious. We both chose the smaller plate option for the main course. My husband had the salmon with... More

Went here for Valentines Day dinner and nothing disappointed us...a rose given to the ladies, special dinner menu and a view to die for with the setting sun. Totally awesome and a hidden gem which is on the way to the ski resort
