There were 4 of us in our party. We had reservations and were seated fairly quickly when we arrived. We all shared the Tahoe loaf with cheddar beer fondue, which was excellent. My husband had the 1/2 cobb salad which was a more than enough for a side salad. For the entrees, two of us had the fish and chips, 1 had the Mac and cheese and 1 had the Baby kale Caesar salad. The portions were generous and the food was good. We will definitely eat here again.

We really enjoyed the food at this cool busy spot. Everything we had - salads, tacos, sandwiches, was fresh and unique. They obviously put a lot of thought into the menu. The service was super friendly and fast too. Really enjoyed Cold Water!

We had high hopes for a great meal here. It was crowded, but only a 10 minute wait for our table. Our server, Tess was wonderful--she kept our water glasses filled and us posted on our meal delivery. However, we ended up waiting approx. 25 minutes for our food. I had a hamburger which was charred on the outside and the inside was medium. It just tasted burnt. My husband ordered a rib steak, which was laking flavor. The potatoes were under cooked and the vegetables over done. We hope this was just "one of those nights" where the food wasn't the best. I think this place has the right idea, has the crowds, but needs some fine tuning in the kitchen. We plan to go back again the next time we are in S.L.T. to give them another chance.

This is a busy local restaurant/bar, and it's busy for a reason. The food here is quite good. We spent a month in South Lake Tahoe and ate here 6 times!

In particular, we loved the pork chop. It's a 14 ounce monster. The chop itself is wonderful, and the chutney-like salsa on top is really flavorful. I often only ate half of it and brought home the rest to make into sandwiches.

The mussels, although listed as an appetizer, is huge. Either order it as an appetizer for the table or a main dish. Either way, ask for extra bread because the sauce is really delicious.

The short ribs are worth a try as is the chicken dish (though it's not a fabulous dish). Hamburger is good but not special.

Yummy food in South Lake Tahoe. Rib eye steak, pork chop and chicken wings. Price is reasonable. Service is good and friendly. Craft beer is delicious.
