I've had a second home at Tahoe for the past 20 years and have dined at Spindleshanks several times over the years. They just seem to get better over time. Service was superb, nothing akin to hovering, but there when needed. The full rack of lamb was superb, seasoned mildly cooked just a tad pink of medium. The presentation was excellent, as were the accompanying sides to the entree. Spindelshanks remains on my "A" list for dining establishments at Tahoe.

We ate at spindleshanks the first night we stayed in Tahoe City and the food could not have been better. I had the marinated grilled flank steak with ranchero and I can honestly say that I have not had a better steak ever. The wine list was great and the live music made the whole night out just great.

We knew we were in for a great meal the second our dishes were placed in front of us. We could just tell so. The quality of the food doesn't match the rather 'plain appearing' menus, or the cozey local atmosphere. Good size portions of an incredible recipe is what were treated to. Great wine selection also. Excellent value to boot! We'll be back for sure next time were in Tahoe. Our best meal of the week while we were here!

I love going to Spindleshanks for their half price happy hour menus and discounted flights of wine. Service is always friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. Favorite plays for girls night out.
