This was the worst restaurant experience of my life. Our wedding party reserved the bar from 10 to midnight with confirmation from the business. They turned us away on the night of the wedding because the manager didn't want to work an additional 2 hours....More

The Beacon is such a fun place. It is situated right on the water. The food and drinks were wonderful, and the service was spectacular. We made reservations and wee seated on the edge of the deck, so the lake was only a few yards...More

Right on the beach, this is a great place to people watch, grab and quick bite, and kick back. It's very crowded on the weekends due to music on Saturday so beware. The food is always good, and this trip we had the steak and...More

I love fish, and for fried fish, this restaurant has the best. Went there twice, and even ordered without chips, fruit instead. Also great location on a deck by the lake.

We went on Labor Day weekend so the place was packed. They handle the crowds well. The service is good. The food was excellent if a little pricey. The view and location by the lake is excellent.

In the Camp Richardson area, this well worn eatery has been a tourist hangout for years, and has an excellent view of lake, marina. Outside table side seating is a game to get visitors in and out as fast a possible. Food prep is poor...More

Great location on the beach. They have outdoor seating and serve alcohol and is home of the rum runner which is a blended drink with rum of course. Great scenery of the lake. Also this place is very pricey.

Hello, My wife and have enjoyed many lunches, and dinners at the Beacon restaurant, but are not sure if they allow dogs inside. There is a nice deck outside that over looks Lake Tahoe and they might allow pets. I've... More
