About Tahoe, NV Restaurants

The Lake Tahoe area has a huge range of restaurants from the typical casino buffet to intimate French bistros; from burger spots to pizza places that make their own microbrews. Also, don't forget breakfast and brunch too. It's absolutely necessary to fuel up before hitting the Tahoe slopes or the hiking trails. In addition, not all these restaurants are "dressy". Tahoe is a low key destination and most restaurants know keep their vibe casual.

Whether it's a place to pop the question or to celebrate a special occasion, you can find a great table with a fantastic view of the lake at Christy Hill in Tahoe City or the Chart House on Kingsbury Grade near Stateline. If you just want to keep your dinner low key, but cozy after a day out in the snow, visit Pianeta for their rustic Italian food or Moody's Bistro in Truckee for their award winning dishes. For breakfast (or a hangover cure) head to the Fire Sign Cafe in between Tahoe City and Homewood for their omelets and wonderful baked goods. If you are closer to the North Shore, go to the Old Post Office Coffee Shop in Carnelian Bay for a stack of pancakes that will give you the crab loading you need for Tahoe's winter sports.
