Got a hankering for a cold drink and some California cuisine as you’re boating across Lake Tahoe in the summer? Pull up to the pier at Gar Woods Grill, and they’ll valet park your vessel while you slip in for a refreshment. Take in the amazing views of the jewel of the Sierra from the deck and balconies or from inside Gar Woods through their floor-to-ceiling windows. Be it winter and snowing, cozy up to the three-story stone fireplace with a mug of something hot to warm your insides. Stand-out appetizers include the Dungeness Crab Cakes and Ahi Poke Tacos. Hand-cut steaks come hot off the grill, as does fresh Hawaiian seafood specials and seared scallops. If it’s your first time at Gar Woods, you’ll have to try their signature drink, the Wet Woody – a frozen blend of rums and peach schnapps with cranberry, orange and pineapple juices and topped with more delicious rum. With its lakefront location, pier and deck, Gar Woods is a great venue for weddings or other celebrations. Lunch and dinner are served daily, and breakfast is served on the weekends. Whether you come by water, wheels or snowshoes, you’re sure to be wowed by the views and refreshed by the world-famous Wet Woody.
