Lake Tahoe Restaurants

Lake Tahoe restaurants have a little something for everyone. From your all-organic, green smoothie-chugging vegan to the carnivore devouring a burger, milkshake and fries and deciding where to order a pizza, visitors and residents remain well fed in Lake Tahoe. These Lake Tahoe restaurants feature a variety of cuisine and versatile food options that make your dining experience anything but dull. At Incline Village restaurants, for example, you can drift from upscale eateries to no-frill diners to delis open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Like every popular vacation destination, Lake Tahoe has its share of gourmet restaurants. Visit Truckee restaurants, for example, and you’ll discover some high-end places with vast wine lists and chef-prepared goodness. Lake Tahoe restaurants are open to all, resort or not, and you’ll find feasts ranging from ethnic cuisine to Americana fare. And your taste buds won’t be the only ones having a pleasurable dining experience — the flowing Truckee River provides a beautiful piece of eye-candy to enhance your meal. If you want to taste some high-dining representatives of the Tahoe area, you can enjoy Southwest, Tex-Mex-inspired dishes in South Lake Tahoe restaurants or Pacific Northwest-influenced fare in Tahoe City restaurants.

A Full Menu of Lake Tahoe Restaurants

If you don’t want all the fuss, however, these restaurants can definitely satisfy a simple palate. Grab some grub and catch the baseball game’s score at sports bars and grills in Kings Beach. In a hurry? Swing by one of Tahoe’s many burger joints. Or if you want a bite to eat that’s a little finer but still quick, you can make a quick trip to a Squaw Valley restaurant that turns its high-end dishes into carry-out meals.

And with all the activity you’re doing throughout the day — swimming, hiking, biking, skiing and exploring — you’ll want some small munchies to keep you going until your next meal. Visit one of the many coffee shops around the lake for a boost of caffeine and a pastry. If you’re looking for a sophisticated way to start the evening, swing by an eclectic bar or brewery and sip on some locally crafted beers with your friends.

Hungry yet? Good! Check out the Lake Tahoe restaurant listings below to discover where you can satisfy all your cravings.
