The local’s favorite, truly the best in hospitality. If you’re over the corporate casino vibe try lake side. With its rustic fill and home town hospitality, the lake side seen can’t be beat. The best players club in town. This is the casino other casino’s employs go to when they want to relax. Best odds on craps in the south... More

Small casino. Lots of smoke. Nice slots. Casino cashier wait lines are long but cashiers are friendly. Wish they didn't put your picture on their casino cards

We ate at the restaurant. I had the onion soup, it was good; not the best I have ever eaten but it was good. I also ate the 2 lobster tail dinner for $19.95. The tails were small but very tasty. The garlic mashed potatoes were luke warm. The carrots were delicious even though they weren't warm either. My husband... More

Lakeside serves an excellent breakfast. If you arrive before 9:00 am breakfast is $4.99 after 9:00 am it's 6.99. Depending on time of year you go , there could be a short wait time, normally isn't more than about 15 minutes.

We serve our 4.99 breakfast specials in both our restaurants until 11 am daily. You're right, it's typically not a long wait and well worth it. Thank you for the review! More

This is the last of the original casinos in Lake Tahoe. We have been coming here for years. This place feels like home, definitely not a chain casino.

As a local we enjoy the smaller casino atmosphere. Lakeside has everything the larger resorts offer, but on a scaled down version. If you want to eat, drink and be entertained in calmer venue, then Lakeside will become your go to place.. Oh, and by the way, we win!

We have been coming to Lake Tahoe every year or two for over 35 years. This casino continues to be our favorite. It has a nice local friendly atmosphere. There is a decent restaurant and it is not overwhelming like some of the bigger places. The staff is friendly and we actually won some money this trip. So that is... More

Nestled among the handful of gaming casinos located at State Line Nevada at Lake Tahoe is the Lakeside. The lakeside features a resort hotel, a large casino and a small but very popular restaurant. The most popular meal is their Prime rib and Lobster special for $19,99. If you do not care for lobster you can order the prime rib... More

This was a cute little casino with a nice variety of table games and even a poker room! It was nice to have a casino where we were staying. It's just about 1/2 - 1 mile away from the other larger casino like Harrah's or Harveys.
