We have eaten at Capitan Jon's several times and enjoyed both the food and atmosphere. Easy to find and plenty of parking. Their seafood is really good, fresh and well prepared. You can't go wrong with any of their seafood dishes. There are some really nice views of the lake so when being seated ask for a window seat or... More

Always come to Captain Johns and have the salmon burger . All the food is scrumptious and the view is to die for . I've never done it but you can drive your boat right up to here . Definitely a place to take a Valentine!

This is just the most friendly restaurant we enjoyed on our most recent trip to the lake. The staff was really friendly and the food the Best. Not sure when we will return, but this will be a re-visit if we do.

We ate a late lunch Saturday afternoon and sat outside - directly over the water. The view was amazing. The service was very slow. Only one waitress - taking care of outside customers, inside customers and bartending. Food was good - very large portions.!

We stopped for lunch on our way around the lake after looking at several other restaurants that did not have as good a view. We were seated right at the lake front window and we even turned our table so that both couples could see out easily. The two wives ordered the clam chowder in a bread bowl. Both remarked... More

My family is up in S Lake Tahoe for the week. We came to Tahoe Vista for the Ropes course and zipline adventure. We stopped into Captain Jons for lunch prior. First thing I saw was Boat house deck dinning. We checked the menu and were in. Service could not have been better or friendlier. Winter dinning may not include... More

I was here opening weekend and have things changed! I was pleasantly surprised to walk in for lunch early October to see the restaurant full of patrons and great energy. The staff was smiling and interested in our table and what brought us in. The cocktails were amazing and the food excellent. Going to come back later for happy hour... More
