Restaurant has a nice setting off the Lake with a nice view, but food is mediocre and way overpriced.

We went here because we read the reviews here on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed.
Your car is taken by valet but this is free (well you could tip them of course!).
There are 2 areas to choose from, on the left it seemed louder with the band playing so we chose the waterfront side. Amazing views of the Lake. It was super busy but the service was fantastic.
We had the scallops on crab risotto and it was delicious and we had the lobster ravioli also yum!!
It wasnt cheap but the food was worth what we paid.

Excellent location very close to the waters edge of Tahoe. Food is excellent, drinks are strong and staff is with it and super friendly. Stephanie at the bar is such a delightful person with an addictive personality. Burgers are a favorite and their fries are thus far the best in Tahoe. Wet woodies are intense! Heard a few guests mention the prices of drinks but recapped with they are strong which is correct. Great kick back spot with an excellent view of the lake. I love the paper straws!!!!

We enjoyed our dinner here. Surprisingly, there are not too many choices overlooking the lake. I would consider it good by Tahoe standards but not amazing if you travel a lot. The food was good, the service was good and the view was as good as it gets.
