Beacon Bar & Grill

Camp Richardson
Lake Tahoe Entertainment
1900 Jameson Beach Road, South Lake Tahoe, CA
(530) 541-1801

In a resort town, the restaurants and pubs often segregate into two different groups – the places that tend toward the locals and the places that tend toward the tourists. Beacon Bar & Grill, on the other hand, is an incredibly popular choice for residents and visitors alike. Located lakeside out at the historic Camp Richardson, it's where a lot of people stop by for... read more

Cottonwood Restaurant & Bar

Lake Tahoe Entertainment
10142 Rue Hilltop Road, Truckee, CA
(530) 587-5711

If Truckee’s marquee landmark is a tad confusing, it’s understandable: Lit up at night above downtown in glowing red letters is a can’t-miss sign — “HILLTOP LODGE.” But if someone suggests having dinner and drinks at Cottonwood you’ll still aim for those neon lights. The Hilltop Lodge sign sits atop Cottonwood Restaurant & Bar, which is perched on one of California’s original ski hills (hence... read more

Lake Tahoe AleWorX Taproom

Lake Tahoe Entertainment
2050 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe, CA
(530) 600-0442

Nothing against the other adult beverages, but South Lake Tahoe has always been more of a craft beer kind of a place, even before microbrew was a buzzword. So the Lake Tahoe AleWorX taproom at the 'Y' doesn't feel so much like it is a new watering hole and pizzeria. It's more as if it's just a final puzzle piece that is a perfect fit.... read more

Occupying the lower half of the historic (and maybe haunted) Truckee Hotel, Moody’s is open for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night grooving to live jazz. Not hungry enough for a... read more
