Personally, I have been there 3 times and wasn't impressed at all !. Long wait lines, ( no logic though), Slow delivery, hardly place to sit and wait . Take outs are horrible.. Pizza always look messy and run down.

As a party of four we split one large pizza and loved it! There was a little bit of a wait but worth it if ou can spare some time. Definitely a cozy area for those pretty cold days.

Ultra convenient location to the Marriott at Heavenly's base. Very popular on a Friday night so we had to wait about 40 min to get a table. The hosts and server were great and fed my family without a single misstep. They even gave extra attention to my ham of child Adam 3 1/2yrs. I ordered the cheesy garlic bread... More

Amazing pizza...not to mention the best garlic fries! Way better than maze and turkey. The atmosphere is bustling but well managed by a very friendly wIt staff...the live music is a greAt bonus.

We went here because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. And they did not let us down. Staff was really friendly, even though it was a busy Friday night our waitress appeared super chill. Made time to talk and make sure everything was okay. Nice beers, good pizzas. We decided on two starters (parmesan fries, not as good as I... More

We were very impressed by the food and service here! The Base Camp wings were hot and juicy, and the pizza was overflowing with toppings. We highly recommended the Mediterranean and the Base Camp. The Happy Camper drink was awesome.

Great pizza, atmosphere (live music on patio) and service. We were disappointed with other restaurants and wished we had found Base Camp at the beginning of our trip! Start your trip here!

We were just travelling through Lake Tahoe so decided to visit here on the recommendations from trip advisor. Food was great, and so was the selection of beer. We sat in the covered outdoor space and the live music was great too

Pizza in Tahoe. The Base Camp pizza, has sausage, peppers, onions, and pepperoni. With all this, the sauce and cheese seemed a but light. Because it was a bit dry, we tried the Build Your Own. Up to 3 ingredients. So extra cheese, extra sauce and pepperoni on a thin crust Perfection! The best part of this place is the... More

Great option for Happy Hour on the outdoor patio. They have live music in the afternoons. The Tangerine Beer was very good. Tried it two other places in Heavenly Village and Base Camp's was the best.
