We trusted the other TripAdvisor reviews and came here for my birthday dinner. I’m so glad we did! This was just my style of sushi - fresh, tasty and straightforward (meaning I knew and liked all the ingredients). We even got seconds of two rolls....More

This place was amazing. The sushi rolls were creative and delicious. The spicy tuna roll with jalapeno and the crunchy granola roll were such a hit we had to keep ordering more for our table. You must order the fried ice cream. It is indescribable,...More

We only had two evenings in S. Lake Tahoe and one was spent here. Friendly staff, excellent service and wonderful food. My wife and I enjoyed everything (and we don't generally go to sushi places). Location is great too. We definitely go back the next...More

Best meal we ate in Tahoe. The sushi was some of the best I've ever had and prices were reasonable. Will certainly return. One thing to note was that the sushi chef in front of us was pretty rude.

Great sushi. Creative without losing the traditional craft and flavors. It can be busy but the service is excellent and the prices reasonable. "A Roll Called Wanda" and the "Dynamite Shrimp" are my favorites. They also have Japanese beer on tap. The crowd is upbeat...More

Awesome food! I had a spicy tuna hand roll, the crunchy Granola and the stop drop and roll. The rolls were exquisite! Service is great and friendly! Must try it!

I should have stuck with the sushi, I suppose, but I wanted soup. Unfortunately, the broth was so salty, that I couldn't finish it. The sushi looked fine, and the sushi chefs were attentive....as I was sitting at the bar.....but......too bad.

Locally owned and operated since 2004, Off the Hook has quickly become the locals' favorite spot for delicious food in a fun, upbeat, inviting atmosphere. Far from a traditional sushi restaurant, this California-style sushi bar puts a Western twist on an ancient Eastern food idea, offering so many unique flavors and ingredients you won't find anywhere else. There are over 40 rolls on the menu, but the Dragon Balls, Fire in the Sky and Gambler are a must try. The sushi is undeniably fresh as the chefs take the utmost care in breaking down and preparing the best quality fish available from whole into delectable bites for their customers. If sushi isn't your thing, the menu also includes a variety of cooked items, such as Tempura, Teriyaki, Bento Boxes, Udon Noodle Bowls, and cooked fish entrees. You'll even find Honey Walnut Prawns, Ahi Poke Salad, and Korean-Style Kalbi Ribs. The homemade desserts (tempura green tea ice-cream!)and extensive sake selection are as equally enticing! Located right in the middle of town on Highway 50, Off the Hook continues to strive to be a casual, yet high qaulity restaurant, cutting no corners when it comes to the customers' dining experience. Find out for yourself why Off the Hook has been voted "Best Sushi" by Tahoe locals for the last six years! Check out their Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4:30 - 6 pm where many of their rolls, appetizers and drinks are discounted.
