We had a Quinoa Bowl which tasted delicious. Full of quinoa, rice and vegetables. My spouse had wonderful fish tacos. Speakeasy Payback Porter was tasty. The signature Run Runners were powerful. Service very nice. You can’t beat the setting on Lake Tahoe at Camp Richardson.

Best lunch we had for our entire week at South Lake Tahoe. Situated at Camp Richardson Marina, the view is spectacular, the best of all the beach front South Lake Tahoe restaurants. The cost is typical mid-range for the area (not cheap by any means),...More
