Feel like dining right on the lake? Riva Grill is open daily for lunch and dinner and has some of the best views around!
There are also spectacular views (and great food) to be found at Brook’s Bar and Deck at Edgewood Tahoe, which features award-winning pub fare. (Golf Digest selected it as a “best golf pub” in 2016!)
Or enjoy good German food and bier (along with trivia and open mic nights) at Himmel Haus.
Feel like something a bit cozier? Jimmy’s Restaurant (at The Landing) features several private dining alcoves, each with their own fireplace! There are also 5 fire pits on the patio and roof-top deck, which overlooks the lake.
Finally, another popular spot is McP’s Taphouse Grill, which has 40 beers on tap and live music Thursdays through Mondays.
