Brothers ‘biker’ bar is vintage Lake Tahoe…basic sports bar with good food, beers, drinks, nice waitresses and staff, hard wooden bar stools, and an interior unlike most – the ceiling and walls are decorated with and covered by signed dollar bills [$$$] taped, stapled and tacked to almost every surface – and don’t try to rip one down to pay...

A friend and I wanted to watch a baseball game that wasn't available at the campground we were staying so we asked a local to recommend a sports bar that wasn't one of the "box stores" to watch the game. They recommended "Brothers Bar and Grill" because of the grub and reputation for good food. We went to the Pub... More

Monday night is Taco night. Great beef tacos for $3. The outdoor dining was great on a 75 degree day. Good value for Lake Tahoe area.

Don't do it.. Unless of course you're a local. They don't want your business and make it very clear. Showed up with my family and felt unwelcomed by our waitress instantly. She was extremely rude and told us to find our own water and that she wouldn't split the bill up to accommodate everyone. The food was horrible as well.... More

This is a friendly bar and grill with some really good food. Breakfast on Sundays is great. Try the redneck benedict, also keep an eye out for the daily specials.

Had a great time there watching hockey there last week. The food was pretty good, but be sure to tell them how you want your burger cooked if you get one. Spencer took care of us and was great.

A great place to go on the "other side of town." It is away from the casinos and therefor attracts mostly locals. We prefer to visit in the summer when we can sit outside as it is often very loud (not great music) inside. The staff is always friendly and the food is fresh. A great place to stop after... More

Never had a bad meal there. My favorite place to watch a game. Lots of TVs so everyone has a good view. Great staff. This is my favorite bar in South Lake.

They do it right! Have several screens around the walls not plastered with dollar bills so that you can find whatever game(s) you are looking for. Breakfasts that would fill a football team, and good too! Love the guys, love the place. My kind of livin' :)

Love this place, super friendly and full of local types. Good bar and good folk. When I went there was a brawl and most did not leave their stools like it was a regular thing. Just saying.....
