10 Best Late-Night Restaurants in Lake Tahoe

Even after a day of skiing or playing around on the waters of Lake Tahoe, there are some people who want to continue the fun with some late night food or libations. Even apart from the Nevada casinos, there are several restaurants in the Tahoe area that stay open later for some late night fun.

Both Tahoe locals and visitors love their pizza and restaurants like Best Pies & Pizzeria and Blue Dog Pizza both offer some late night dinner, snacks and entertainment. Other restaurants with late night entertainment like music, trivia games and karaoke include the Fat Cat in Tahoe City and the popular and beautiful Moody's Bistro in Truckee, California. You can still get some appetizers and small plates at these two restaurants way into midnight.

Bars like Murphy's Pub, Himmel Haus and the Lone Eagle at the Hyatt in Incline Village also have late night specials on drinks and food and you won't be alone. These places stay popular with locals and visitors into the late night. For those with late night sushi cravings, Off the Hook stays open late to accommodate the ski and boarding crowds and if you really want to splurge on your last night in Lake Tahoe, take your date to Cafe Fiore on the North Shore.
