We had such a nice time for dinner. It was absolutely the best table and we had the whole dining room to ourselves. Our server was excellent and provided such a nice atmosphere for us. We had the shrimp cocktail, braised short ribs, and my father in law raved over the duck breast! The chefs soup was also excellent. I... More

Nice food. Fish was fresh. A lot of interesting wines on wine list. Nicer than most as far decor. Not a bad place.

After all the great reviews, had to try Big Water Grille. The setting is great, and the facility has a great up-scale feel. But the menu was disappointing. Very limited, with only 5-6 entree choices. We expected a wide range of fish (given the name), but only a couple of items. It may be that our visit (9/24) is a... More

Service was a little spotty but great food and wonderful views - a lovely evening Waiter was late bringing bread, seemed a little distracted

I have been here for cocktails and dining. They always have great chefs, despite being in an off-the-path restaurant. Service is always good too. Seems like there may be a bit too much wait staff in some instances. Always a pleasant experience here.

We had excellent meals on this visit. Most of us had the scallops. They were cooked to perfection and the flavors were amazing. Some at the ribeye and enjoyed the too. Don't forget the blondie for dessert.

Special occasion July 2016- pty of 5 with resv. Table location very nice. Wait staff attentive but our waitress had such a soft voice and noise in rest. So loud, we had to keep asking her to repeat herself...not her fault at all. 4 out of 5 of us were very dissatisfied with our meal(s). The 5th diner said his... More

We have a place in Incline and have visited almost all of the restaurants; this has fallen off of our radar because we can't walk to it but it's worth the 2 minute drive! Fabulous peaceful view on the deck and fantastic service. They also offer smaller portions of some dinners if you want to sample and share. One of... More
