This is my favorite restaurant in Tahoe on a sunny day. It is located on the North Shore in Tahoe City. One of the best things about Bridgetender is its location right along the Truckee River. You can sit under huge pine trees and take in the view of the lazy river.
This is a casual and laid back place- jeans, shorts, t-shirts and tank-tops. Tourists and locals mix happily in the sunshine.
Although it has a dining room inside the actual restaurant, the best spots are found on the huge patio along the river. The beers are cold, and the burger selection is enormous. The fries and onion rings are enough to make any dieter cheat!
Favorite Dish: Avocado, bacon and swiss burger! I never eat hamburgers. I normally "just say no" to all that fat and heartburn. However, I can't resist a few burgers a year at Bridgetender!
The price might be less than $10 a person if you don't ring up the tab with all those cold beers.

We ate at the Wild Goose in February 2004 during Mick Jagger Week, and then again in October 2004. The chef changed in between those two times, and so did the menu.
Now the menu has a mild Japanese influence. Note emphasis on "mild". But it is there.
Favorite Dish: For Atkins lovers, you can order the lamb dish which includes lamb cooked about 18 different way. To balance things out, the dish also comes with some carbs (a pear shaped glob of mashed potatoes) and some green stuff (sauteed spinach and pearl onions).
My teenage son, who is a major lamb fan, ordered this dish and said it was delicious, except for the lamb sausage which he said was "weird".

Wild Goose earned a 10 out of 10 rating from me for its vegetarian dish. Actually, I got 3 dishes. Pictured here is Wild Goose's trio of vegetarian dishes (not specifically on the menu - you'll need to ask): sauteed green beans, asparagus and orange and yellow baby carrots, grilled wild mushrooms and linguine with tomatoes and olive oil.

Sunnyside Restaurant and Lodge has been a landmark in the Tahoe area since the 1950s. The establishment sits on the beaches of Tahoe and gives it's visitors spectaular views to enjoy. They have the largest lakefront patio in Tahoe, so I recommend eating outside. The cuisine is American and they are known for their seafood and steaks. You cannot go wrong at Sunnyside.
Favorite Dish: I had the crusted halibut special topped with a sweet peach salsa, and to my amazement it was one of the best I have had. My guests ordered the lamb shank and their mouths were watering as well. Oh, and for dessert, try the Hula Pie. You will be satisfied.

The restaraunt is located right on beautiful lake tahoe. The view is magnificant as you are sitting at the deck on the waters edge. Service is wonderful. We dressed up and went to dinner at this restaurant. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time to be seated outside, the whole point of this restaurant is enjoying the view. The food is wonderful. Start with a Napa Valley wine and some calamari. My husband ate Mahi Mahi and I had chicken, both WONDERFUL dinners. He had researched this place on the web and got several recommendations. We ate right before sunset and enjoyed the sunset from a viewing area on our way back to South Lake Tahoe. TOTALLY worth the 30-45 minute drive. Best dinner ever.
Favorite Dish: Calamari - you can't go wrong. I love the stuff!

Fiamma's chef is incredibly creative. We had the most delicious and innovative dinner at this restaurant with an exceptionally appealing atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: One of the most delicious vegetarian dishes I've ever had - roasted acorn squash filled with wild rice risotto with wild mushrooms, dried cranberries and hazelnuts, sitting on a bed of greens with raspberry vinagrette.
Basil (yes, basil) gelato for dessert! Mmmmm - mmmmm! Delicious!
The Persnickety Teens devoured the shrimp and scallops fettucini with a light white wine cream and basil sauce and sun dried tomatoes.
The restaurant also serves pizzas, a variety of pastas, roast pork tenderloin, steak, and chicken, all very creatively prepared.

Coyote's cuisine is unique. We saw it advertised as a Mexican restaurant, but that description is somewhat misleading. The menu has a strong south of the border influence, but it also has a Carribbean bent as well.
The food is absolutely delicious. The restaurant is small, so definitely make reservations.
Favorite Dish: Although you will see items such as chicken mole and tamales on the menu, this is not a traditional Mexican restaurant. Creative and unique south of the border/Carribbean is how I would describe it. Everything we ordered was excellent. I will definitely eat here again when on my next trip to Tahoe City!

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but when you see all the cars that are constantly parked outside, you know this is a happening place. Fire Sign is a popular spot with the locals in Tahoe City, and for good reason. Their homestyle breakfasts and lunches are outstanding, and they serve very healthy portions.
Open for breakfast and lunch only. Serves delicious omelettes, burgers, sandwiches, salads, hot blackberry cobbler.

Christy Hill Restaurant is located right on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. Its large plate glass windows will give you the most beautiful views as you experience their delicious cuisine. The menu is California with a French influence.
Favorite Dish: The dinner menu includes creative game, meat, fish and fowl entrees. There is also always at least one outstanding vegetarian dish. I had roasted eggplant, wild rice, and sauteed vegetables au gratin. Very creative and very delicious!
This photo shows the beautiful view that awaits you from the restaurant.

This restaurant is unique because it has TWO names. In the morning it serves breakfast and calls itself the Eggschange. During lunch and dinner, it calls itself Lakehouse Pizza and Bar.
Whatever its name, the views from this restaurant can't be beat. This photo was taken from the nearby pier. Lakehouse Pizza is the second building from the left behind the huge snow drift.
