We have owned a home in South Lake Tahoe since 1975. Restaurants come and go. Mostly there isn't good middle priced places to go. Someone told my mom about this place a couple of summers ago, and now it is my favorite spot. Please realize that everyone is Lake Tahoe is on what the locals call "Tahoe Time", which is a lot like Hawaiian time. For the rest of us in the bay area, that is code for slow. Be patient, the food is worth it. It is a family run business and the owner will come out and talk to you. I haven't had anything I didn't like, but the place is always crowded, so get a glass of wine and bring good company so you forgot how slow it takes them to bring you your food.
