Live music, rum runners, delicious food, a beach with pine trees, a marina, water activities, cold water all right in front of you! We had calamari, turkey and brie, and clam chowder bread bowl. Really tasty.

We had a Quinoa Bowl which tasted delicious. Full of quinoa, rice and vegetables. My spouse had wonderful fish tacos. Speakeasy Payback Porter was tasty. The signature Run Runners were powerful. Service very nice. You can’t beat the setting on Lake Tahoe at Camp Richardson.
