I've been coming to South Lake Tahoe for years and had no idea that this place was even there until last month. Purely by chance, I drove down from my hotel to check on the beach access that my hotel reservation gave me. There, nestled next to the beach, was the Lakeside Beach House and I decided to check it out. Imagine, if you will, the archetypal beach hangout with plastic chairs and tables and sensational views of the crystal blue lake. Patrons are protected from the late afternoon breezes off the lake by a clear plastic windbreak on the shoreline side of the restaurant. Not sure what to expect, I asked for a table in the sun with a view of the sandy beach and ordered a beer and a Asian chicken salad. The food and beverage duly arrived and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of both. So much so, that I decided to return the following evening with some friends. On both occasions there was live music from a small stage area in the far corner of the patio. The waitress was very friendly and steered my companions towards the fish and chips which she strongly recommended as the specialty of their English chef. I went with the Caesar salad, but the others followed her recommendation and reported that the fish and chips was indeed well worth the star billing. So, if you are looking for a quick lunch at the beach or perhaps a round of drinks while you watch the sunset, you could do far worse than give the Lakeside Beach House a try. It is never owing to make the. Michelin guide, but they do what they do very well and what a location!

Had dinner with my friends here in July, over a weekend, and loved it. Simple and good food (beach house burger was great) with a good few beer options. Great vibes in the place being in front of the lake and having live music on. If you visit south Tahoe you should go :)

This is your classic beach place. Albeit separated from the actual sandy beach - you need to pay a fee to gt onto the beach - you look out through a glass divider onto the beach and the inimitable lake nestling between the Sierra Nevada ranges - in other words, location, location, location - unbeatable scenery. Seating is outdoor, with large umbrellas for shade. We were originally just there for drinks, but when we saw what was being served at other tables around us, we also ordered a small lunch, and it was absolutely delicious. I would have liked my portion to be a little larger, especially considering what it cost, but anyhow. Friendly service, too
