10Best Restaurants, Cafés and Bars in Incline Village

Incline Village on the North Shore of Tahoe reflects the lake's laid back lifestyle in its restaurants, cafes, and bars. Take your pick from Japanese, fine dining, Thai, BBQ and even Mexican rotisserie. To start out a day of hiking, swimming or just hanging around on the beach start with a filling breakfast at the Wildflower Cafe for their large servings of french toast or eggs and bacon. Lunches are quick at T's Rotisserie or leisurely at the AYCE menu at Koi Sushi. For a fine dining experience, try the seafood at the Big Water Grille, which is right on the water or beautiful dishes at Jack Rabbit Moon. If you are in town with your family, Austin's is kid-friendly and features live music on their deck in the summer. For the Happy Hour folks, head to Bite for a cosmopolitan flair in the forest or to the Lone Eagle Grille at the Hyatt for the most dynamic views of the lake from their deck overlooking the beach and the blue water of Lake Tahoe.
