Went to Off The Hook during Happy Hour (4:30 to 6PM, M-F) where the prices are little cheaper but the quality and quantity of food is the same. This restaurant is right off Hwy50 in a small strip mall. There is usually plenty of parking...More

We went for the Sushi. And It was great. I would have liked more variety in the their sushi (with different kinds of meat). But all in all... a great sushi experience.

Love, love the sushi at Off the Hook, especially during their Happy Hour. Great food, and great service. A pretty good deal during happy hour, otherwise it's pretty pricey as is usual with most sushi restaurants.

We stopped here today because of all the good reviews. The restaurant opens at 4.30pm and we just got in when they opened the door. They were very friendly and the restaurant looked nice and clean. The music was a desaster (some California Pop Music)...More

From a price per pound perspective this is the best we've seen. The sashimi was very good although limited varieties were available. The serve was friendly and timely. While overall very good, it's not quite up to NYC area standards. But then again it's nice...More

Locally owned and operated since 2004, Off the Hook has quickly become the locals' favorite spot for delicious food in a fun, upbeat, inviting atmosphere. Far from a traditional sushi restaurant, this California-style sushi bar puts a Western twist on an ancient Eastern food idea, offering so many unique flavors and ingredients you won't find anywhere else. There are over 40 rolls on the menu, but the Dragon Balls, Fire in the Sky and Gambler are a must try. The sushi is undeniably fresh as the chefs take the utmost care in breaking down and preparing the best quality fish available from whole into delectable bites for their customers. If sushi isn't your thing, the menu also includes a variety of cooked items, such as Tempura, Teriyaki, Bento Boxes, Udon Noodle Bowls, and cooked fish entrees. You'll even find Honey Walnut Prawns, Ahi Poke Salad, and Korean-Style Kalbi Ribs. The homemade desserts (tempura green tea ice-cream!)and extensive sake selection are as equally enticing! Located right in the middle of town on Highway 50, Off the Hook continues to strive to be a casual, yet high qaulity restaurant, cutting no corners when it comes to the customers' dining experience. Find out for yourself why Off the Hook has been voted "Best Sushi" by Tahoe locals for the last six years! Check out their Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4:30 - 6 pm where many of their rolls, appetizers and drinks are discounted.
