There’s no question that living in and around “America’s Favorite Playground” has some significant advantages year-round, and summer certainly has some of the best on the planet. When time allows, the team at Elder Group Tahoe Real Estate finds time to get out on the Lake and explore the shores over its crystal clear waters … and treat ourselves to some of the best dining options in the West!
When you’re ready to do the same, we suggest you hop on a boat and head to these favorite lakeside restaurants at Lake Tahoe. (Need a boat? Click here for some local insight on boat rentals and private charters on Lake Tahoe.)

By lake (or by land) we always try to land at one or more of these delicious lakeside restaurants that welcome boaters throughout the summer and fall seasons. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Historic and hip all at the same time, “Camp Rich” is for anyone who loves to dine casually on the lake and listen to great live music, too. Well known for their local hospitality and hearty meals at a good value, the Camp’s lakeside restaurant, The Beacon Bar and Grille, is a fun spot in the summer, and every other season as well.

Another lovely location, the West Shore Café has become one of the finest restaurants on the Lake. And with good reason. Complete with pier and boat valet, it’s a “must do boat stop” every summer.

They take reservations for dinner; lunch is open on a first come basis. Both are great reasons to keep this on your “dine-by-boat” list for friends and family to enjoy.
