What more could you ask for than a lodge on the lake with a great view and a beach bar? Jason’s Beachside Grille has been dishing out gourmet burgers, great drinks and good times in Kings Beach since 1984. The interior is rustic and cozy, all wood, with hand-carved barstools and chairs, a vintage fire pit and birch branches strung with white lights. A glass-enclosed deck overlooks the beach, and in the summer their backyard opens up as a lawn area with tables, live music on the weekends and refreshing beverages from the outdoor kiosk. Besides the long list of flame-broiled hamburgers, Jason’s has hot sandwiches and beef, chicken, pasta and seafood meals. Clam chowder and French onion soup are specialties, along with the extensive salad bar stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables and pasta salads. In the summer check out their Sandbar, an outdoor version of their restaurant that serves up tasty BBQ on the weekends as well as live music. Jason’s is family friendly. It also has a full bar.
