Palisades Tahoe Restaurants (formerly Squaw Valley)

Including Alpine Meadows

While the amazing natural beauty of Lake Tahoe feeds your soul — it does little to calm the tummy rumblings when hunger strikes. Let this Palisades Tahoe restaurant guide (that includes Palisades Tahoe restaurants) help make your vacation delicious and satisfying as well as relaxed and adventure-filled. Fast food restaurants are found next to intimate Mom and Pop eateries and close to lavish venues. Where Olympic athletes tread in 1960, present-day restaurants deliver diverse Palisades Tahoe dining options from Cal Asian, Irish, American, Italian and other foods such as Mexican and Chinese. Many Palisades Tahoe restaurants, no frills to high end, come with fabulous views of mountains and the sky at various altitudes.

In Palisades Tahoe restaurants, you can fuel up for a Lake Tahoe day of fun with a loaded bagel, bowl of steel cut oatmeal dotted with fresh fruit or a colorful juice smoothie. Need a snack in between hitting the slopes and shopping the stores? Pizza, in every size and for every palate, is a favorite boost. Some Palisades Tahoe dining options feature the best of local Placer County wines and produce. Dinners can start with layers of flavors from grilled peach, sharp bites of arugula accompanied by creamy goat cheese or candied almonds’ crunch along with a white balsamic vinegar emulsion and port reduction.

Palisades Tahoe Restaurants Are Diverse

Casualness in dress rules at Palisades Tahoe restaurants but not on all menus. A classic burger loaded with traditional toppings is easy to find but so are Wagyu beef burgers with melted Gruyere cheese served inside a brioche bun. When Lake Tahoe’s summer temps rise high, light flavorful meals abound. Seared tuna and shredded Napa cabbage delight Palisades Tahoe diners with the creamy and crispy textures from sliced avocados, carrot slivers and wonton pieces. Palisades Tahoe restaurants welcome every appetite with delicious food at a great altitude.
