Must be New Chef based on past good reviews as our dinner was awful. I had the pasta it was uneatable, wife had salmon, no flavor. The one bright spot our niece had the calamari and it was very good.

A fantastic place with the good food and friendly staff. It has a beautiful view of the Lake Tahoe. The specialty of the place is Rum Runner which I highly recommend to all visitors.

I just love this place. We've never had a bad meal. Two in our party had the Spicy Burger and it was delicious with Jalapeños and shiracha sauce. Garlic fries could have used more Garlic. Great site for a meal or cocktails.
