At first glance of the restaurant's signage I thought it might just be a bar or even a strip club. Far from it. Daring to adventure my friends and I went inside and found what I believe is the best kept secret in South Lake Tahoe. And I don't give such praise lightly. You have to appreciate the time and money spent on revamping this place. What used to be a tatoo parlor is now an awesome looking bar with great food. Clean interior and a staff that is fantastic. They made me a raving fan as I noticed their attention to detail in just about every area. Cocktails were creative and tasty. Amazingly not just a drink but a cocktail done right even down to the attention to the garnish. Our server Alyssa recommended the calamari strips...fresh and lightly breaded. Just right for an appetizer with our cocktail. My friends and I were so impressed we decided to test to see if this was a fluke. Afterall, the other tripadvisor review on the place was less than flattering. Returning for breakfast the next morning (yes, they are open 24 hours) we ordered sour dough egg sandwiches. What we watched was the cook make the sandwiches with fresh ingredients not have something pre-cooked and microwaved. It was delicious. I write this because I think if you are the type of vacationer that appreciates an eatery that takes the time to do it right rather than offer fast food flash...then the Lucky Beaver is worth your business and supporting with a try of your own. Don't let the tacky name scare you off. You will be the lucky one if you walk inside and have a bite and drink.
