“Bad Name, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

I was initially reluctant to try this place as the name and sign on the door sort of suggested something other than a great burger place. Several locals had recommended the place and I finally gave it a try. This is clearly the best burger place in the area. There's nothing risqué or off color about the place. Just great burgers and excellent service. If your visiting the casinos and considering a casual meal, I would strongly suggest that you take the very short walk to the Lucky Beaver (conveniently situated between Harrah's and Monbbleu). You will not be disappointed.

“Finally found a great burger in South Lake Tahoe!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

It took a while to get my husband to go there. We didn't know there was a parking lot with patio and fire pit in the back and my husband (with a bad back) thought he'd have to walk to far.
We have been there three times in a month. Every time it was great! The first two time we both had the burgers. They also have great fries and tator tots!!
On our last visit we decided to try the chicken caesar salad, which we both loved.
The staff is wonderful!! Three different servers, and the manager asked us how our dinner was.
Oh, and my husband says they have the coldest draft beer!!

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

This place has the best grilled burgers in Tahoe. Forget Izzys and Big Daddies who pretend to have good burgers with a bad attitude staff. They can't compete with this place.

The staff at Lucky Beaver is friendly and care that they are doing a good job. The burgers are fresh with no hormones or additives and grass fed. This is better than the meat you would bring into your own home!

Although it is a bar, it doesn't smell of smoke and is a really nicely done in dark woods and with a lot of taste and doesn't have that cheep bar look. It is a very comfortable feel to it.

Take it from a long time local, we needed a place like this.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Wanted to come here for meal while on holiday in tahoe with our teenage kids but place is 21 and over only. Reviews were so good we decided to go for drink and order takeaway. We were not disappointed. Service was excellent, great atmosphere, and after having couple drinks and going home with take away burgers, food is also amazing. Probably best burger I've ever eaten, and also very reasonably priced. Thank you so much :) xx
