Cork & More

Lake Tahoe Restaurant
1032 Al Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe, CA

A few select businesses establish themselves to the point that you can't imagine what it would be like if they were to close up shop.

Gus' Open Pit Barbecue

Lake Tahoe Restaurant
930 Tahoe Boulevard, Incline Village, NV
(775) 831-4487

Born out of a mobile catering grill, Gus’ Open Pit Barbecue is not your usual barbecue joint.

Lake Tahoe AleWorX Taproom

Lake Tahoe Restaurant
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

LewMarNel's Steaks and Spirits

Best Western Station House Inn
Lake Tahoe Restaurant
901 Park Avenue, South Lake Tahoe, CA
(530) 542-1072

When you first learn that LewMarNel’s is affiliated with and connected to a Best Western Inn, you might picture it as a fair-to-middlin’ cafe or diner, and the fact that the Station House Inn guests receive a complimentary breakfast there reinforces that image. The seasonal lunch menu is also rather limited, although dining on the deck or poolside can be a treat. The truth, however,... read more
