This spot was a nice surprise. Very casual (we sat outside on picnic benches) for a sushi restaurant and the staff were all extremely friendly and nice, happy people which can really make your experience. And the food topped it all. My husband and son...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.

Returned to our spiritual home, Lake Tahoe, to eat at the best sushi restaurant I've been to. The food, cooked by Chi and his team of dedicated chefs was to die for. The mix of textures and tastes was excellent. We were extremely well looked...More

After a long day of traveling to Tahoe and enjoying the snow, my friends and I decided to have a dinner inside our cabin. We ordered our food to-go through phone and the wait was about an hour. If you are planning on ordering to-go,...More

Great Sushi!! Customer service is on point. Yes it gets busy during the tourist season. If there are only two of you getting a seat at the bar will be faster. Happy hour from 4-6 is totally worth it and the rolls are great.

We liked this place so much that we went back twice. The rolls were creative and delicious. Portions generous. Presentation exceptional. Sushi was fresh and tasty. The staff was nice - very accommodating. Gets crowded but worth the wait. Highly recommend.

Came here for dinner before 6pm and the place was almost full. We ordered sushi and udon and both were great! Plenty of wine, beer and sake options. Certainly a great place for good Japanese food and some drinking.

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.
