We splurged and made reservations after hearing hotel guests & staff rave about this place. This was where the staff would bring their out-of-town guests. Had to try it and so glad we did. The service was great and the food was even better! I got the Alfredo Carbonara and it was excellent, my husband got a steak and loved... More

We were staying at the co-located Best Western Inn and had their complementary breakfast three mornings in a row. The service was fast, friendly, and the food was good. The menu was sufficiently varied to be able to have lots of choices.

My husband wanted a steak so I looked on line to find s steakhouse, not many in Tahoe. Decided on LewMarNel's slightly hard to find and not a lot of parking but the food is very good. I had the breaded veal and my husband had his ribeye both were outstanding. There is complimentary cheese fondue that was so good... More

...the food was pretty good. The dining room is a bit dated but the service was great. We had steaks (small filet and NY Strip) and both were cooked perfectly. In a throwback to days long gone, there was complimentary cheese fondue with the bread basket and a house salad as well. This is by no means the quality of... More

Can be a wait for breakfast due to hotel traffic, but excellent service. Dinner was very nice - Alfredo Carbonara and Chicken Fried steak. Again great service and very nice atmosphere.

There is only one egg dish for breakfast, so you are left with carbs, carbs and more carbs. Every day was at least 20 minute wait, except when it was 45-55 minute wait. They are polite but very slow in getting diners in and clearing tables. We ate there because it was the breakfast included with our Best Western hotel... More

Lew MarNel's is a Rockford ( tv show ) kind of place, nice, with a great location, near the beach. I have been going to this restaurant for years, and love the ambiance. It is a bit pricy for the meat end of the menu. They offer a nice cheese fondue plate as a kind of free appetizer. The service... More

We had a nice breakfast with very friendly wait staff. If you stay at the nearby best western the breakfast is actually included for free. The French toast was very good as were the eggs and bacon.
