Find your food craving at Lake Tahoe for yum with a view. Mexican, Italian, Indian, Chinese, German, Greek, Thai, Japanese and good old American burgers and fries are on Lake Tahoe menus and there’s more. Google the category you’re looking for and your options will pop up.
Terrific affordable breakfasts are available in the four casinos, IHOP and there are five Starbuck’s to choose from, but there are some truly unique breakfast restaurants at Lake Tahoe. Bert’s Café and Ernie’s Coffee Shop have been serving up American style breakfasts on the South Shore for ages as have Heidi’s, the three Red Hut Cafés and the Driftwood Café. Those looking for a small, somewhat Bohemian breakfast experience with great coffee will find it at the Keys Café. Restaurants in this category also serve lunch.
The Beacon sits on the beach at Camp Richardson and features expansive views of Lake Tahoe and the Carson Range. For those that want lots of boats in their lake view Riva Grill is sure to please and same for nearby Artemis Lakefront Café. The Beach House sits on Lakeside Beach, it’s sans roof, but enclosed in glass with wonderful views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra. Jimmy’s Restaurant is across the street and shares similar views. Fine Dining with incredible views can be found at the top of Harveys Tahoe in the Sage Room and top of Harrah’s in Friday’s Station. Want the elevated lake view and Sierra view without being in a casino and fine dining atmosphere, you’ll find it at the casually elegant Chart House. Old Tahoe granite and wood ambiance with huge picture windows can be found on the beach at the Restaurant at Edgewood. The Bistro and Brook’s Bar and Deck at Edgewood have views, too.
