Lakefront dining at Tahoe South

Posted in Eat | May 23, 2013 | By Tahoe South

With so many restaurants in Tahoe South – from family-style to fine dining – it’s pretty easy to find something yummy to match your tastes and budget. As a bonus, some of the best restaurants in Tahoe South serve up a delicious meal with a side of beautiful lake views. Here is my list of top spots for waterfront dining at Lake Tahoe.

24 - Beacon_at_Camp_Rich405.jpg

– Grab a seat on the deck, kick back and relax with a Rum Runner. And the clam chowder in a bread bowl. The Beacon is open for lunch and dinner, and the sunsets from the beachside deck are not to be missed.

The Fresh Ketch at Tahoe Keys Marina
- Located on the water in the Tahoe Keys Marina, The Fresh Ketch offers casual dining downstairs or on the lawn. For more formal (if anything in Tahoe is formal) head upstairs for outstanding cuisine and magical views.


42 - Boathouse_on_the_Pier405.jpg

– The Boathouse is the only restaurant actually out IN Lake Tahoe. It is quite literally “on the pier,” and the views are unbeatable. Paddle over for a drink on the deck, and relax into your next perfect Tahoe evening.

279 - Riva_Grill405.jpg
Riva Grill on the Lake
– This is one of my favorite spots for appetizers and drinks after a long day of work or play. Try the ahi poke stack and the zucchini sticks (plan to share). For your first time, try their signature drink, the “Wet Woody.” Frozen, rum-based, and delicious, you will certainly be back for another!

81 - Edgewood405.jpg
Edgewood Tahoe Restaurant
– With a dining room overlooking Lake Tahoe, and the more casual Brooks Bar facing the famed golf course, you cannot go wrong with an evening at Edgewood. Featuring some of the largest windows on the Lake along the South Shore, Edgewood’s attention to detail and mix of classic and innovative entrees makes it the perfect spot for a romantic dinner for two or a private celebration.


205 - Lakeside-Beach-House405.jpg
Lakeside Beach House
– Under new management and featuring renovations to both the menu and the restaurant, Lakeside Beach House will be the new kid on the block to check out this summer. With a location adjacent to Lakeside Beach, within easy walking distance of the casino corridor and Heavenly Village, be sure to stop in and enjoy!
