Lake Tahoe Dining Guide

The Lake Tahoe/Truckee dining experience can vary widely, from laid back burgers and beer, to five star cuisine. It can be helpful to gather some local knowledge before venturing out on the town. Don't be fooled by our small town appearance either; there are over 75 fantastic restaurants spanning the Lake Tahoe and Truckee regions where you can wine and dine, grab an apres-ski snack, catch a happy hour or take the entire family out. Whether you decide to dine in or carry out, our restaurants cater to your every need.

When it comes to dining at North Lake Tahoe ski areas, the Village at Squaw Valley offers a wide variety of restaurants, from popular sushi joint Mamasake to family-friendly Fireside Pizza Co. to more upscale Bistro 22. For après-ski, Squaw can’t be beat. Grab a beer and a handroll for $5 at Mamasake, or walk over to the Cornice Cantina in the Far East Center for stunning views of Squaw Valley and a taco and margarita. Outside the village, Graham’s, housed in the valley’s first house, features California cuisine influenced by Mediterranean recipes.

Pull up a chair at the bar at casual Sandy’s Pub in the Resort at Squaw Creek, or dine upstairs at Six Peaks Grille for a fine-dining experience. In Alpine, the Crest Café is a great stop for a sandwich break after biking on the bike path, or to fuel up on a breakfast burrito before hitting the slopes.
