This is just the most friendly restaurant we enjoyed on our most recent trip to the lake. The staff was really friendly and the food the Best. Not sure when we will return, but this will be a re-visit if we do.

Thank you so much for joining us! We are running on a very limited staff right now during the winter but we sure have the best there to wait on you! We change our menu often so make sure to check out out and come back again on your next visit. Thanks again More

We ate a late lunch Saturday afternoon and sat outside - directly over the water. The view was amazing. The service was very slow. Only one waitress - taking care of outside customers, inside customers and bartending. Food was good - very large portions.!

Thanks for visiting us at Captain Jon's. Yes you are right, there are some days during winter when we operate with limited staff. The time of year you came was a very slow period. The person waiting on you that day is a Manager and she loves to "Do it all" we trust your experience was a good one and... More

Thanks so much for visiting Captain Jon's. I am so sorry for the slower than usual service during your visit. This is the time of year that most Tahoe restaurants close, we decided instead to reduce our staff and limit our menu until the first snow falls. The weather has been so beautiful that we decided to stay open but... More

We stopped for lunch on our way around the lake after looking at several other restaurants that did not have as good a view. We were seated right at the lake front window and we even turned our table so that both couples could see out easily. The two wives ordered the clam chowder in a bread bowl. Both remarked... More

Hi- I am so sorry to hear of your experience while dining at Captain Jon's. I totally agree the server should have asked you before making a substitution. I am so sorry as that is not our policy to assume you would be happy with that. We actually had a run on chowder that day and ran out of bread... More

My family is up in S Lake Tahoe for the week. We came to Tahoe Vista for the Ropes course and zipline adventure. We stopped into Captain Jons for lunch prior. First thing I saw was Boat house deck dinning. We checked the menu and were in. Service could not have been better or friendlier. Winter dinning may not include... More

I was here opening weekend and have things changed! I was pleasantly surprised to walk in for lunch early October to see the restaurant full of patrons and great energy. The staff was smiling and interested in our table and what brought us in. The cocktails were amazing and the food excellent. Going to come back later for happy hour... More

Gorgeous view of the lake. Sitting on the pier with the glass partitions to shelter from any weather is fantastic. The staff is very friendly and is happy to talk about the area. Lots of food choices - the nachos smell and taste great. Lots of appetizers to sample. We did not have dinner so I can't comment on those... More
