The food at this little restaurant is divine. I had the pulled pork and my wife and our friend, Courtney, had the tacos. The hawaiian influences make this place rather special. We make sure we visit a least once each time we go to Lake Tahoe. The food is always fresh, moreish, wholesome, tasty and eclectic. The staff are very... More

I love this place...the food is nice & clean & islandish. Keep an open mind & enjoy your dining experience. Go at an off time so you don't get caught in a rush because there is not a lot of room in this joint! I like to sit right at the front counter so I don't miss a thing!

This place is fun, the menu eclectic. Food delicious, price is fare. The Jambalaya is wonderful!!! During the summer they also have seating outside on the roof with a nice view of the lake, (plenty of shade if you want it). A fun place to take out of town guest

Ordered the Kahlua Pig = more like carnitas, but with no flavor. I was expecting a moist flavorful dish. The rice is very tasty. My other half had the Teriyaki beef = average. Desserts were good. Wine and beer - but, if you want to make your own...order the limeade and mix it with the sake. The Squid appetizer was... More

There is a sign outside the door that says 'wait to be seated' - so we all stood and waited. No one came to greet us or offer to seat us, so I stepped inside to see if the staff who were right there and could see us were going to help. I heard one of the male staff say... More

As a local, I come here regularly. The beer selection is top-notch and the food is excellent. Great service rounds things out. Summer seating on the roof is worth it just for the views of the lake. Be on the look out for their daily specials... so tasty.

We had read many positive reviews of Freshies and they were all accurate. The food (fish tacos and Hawaiian chicken BBQ) were fresh and tasty. The service was perfect. 5 stars all the way.

I ordered fish tacos and both were delicious with a great sauce. Everything on the plate was delicious. Also ordered cod fish and chips and they were good also. Small location with bar service and service was great too.

On the outside, this looks like one of those "hole in the wall" type of places. We were a little leary to try it but sooo glad we did. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with the side of fries- sounds simple, but probably one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Paired with a great tap beer, it made... More
