Jakes On The Lake is a longstanding favorite for both locals and visitors to the North Lake Tahoe area. The restaurant has a superb spot situated directly on the shores of lake, making the views from the outdoor seating fantastic. The bar area is huge, perfect for large groups or parties. The menu ranges in styles of food — from Hawaiian-inspired seafood and steak to hamburgers and slow-roasted beef short ribs. Just like its sister restaurant, Sunnyside, Jakes offers the must-try dessert, the Hula Pie. This monstrous ice cream, Oreo crust, chocolate covered, hot fudge delight is best shared. It's so giant that, for certain, there is enough love to go around. The restaurant is closed for the 2017 winter. It will reopen May 11.
