As a local we enjoy the smaller casino atmosphere. Lakeside has everything the larger resorts offer, but on a scaled down version. If you want to eat, drink and be entertained in calmer venue, then Lakeside will become your go to place.. Oh, and by the way, we win!

As a smaller casino, we love locals like you! You're right we do offer everything the larger casinos offer but we excel in customer service and value. We take pride in not being like any other place in town! Thanks for the great review! We hope to see you back soon. More

We have been coming to Lake Tahoe every year or two for over 35 years. This casino continues to be our favorite. It has a nice local friendly atmosphere. There is a decent restaurant and it is not overwhelming like some of the bigger places. The staff is friendly and we actually won some money this trip. So that is... More

Nestled among the handful of gaming casinos located at State Line Nevada at Lake Tahoe is the Lakeside. The lakeside features a resort hotel, a large casino and a small but very popular restaurant. The most popular meal is their Prime rib and Lobster special for $19,99. If you do not care for lobster you can order the prime rib... More

This was a cute little casino with a nice variety of table games and even a poker room! It was nice to have a casino where we were staying. It's just about 1/2 - 1 mile away from the other larger casino like Harrah's or Harveys.

The performance was excellent. Our seats were perfect, and we listened to music while the sun set over the water of the lake. It was a beautiful setting.

Not a large casino but they offer 1/3 of the slots that are newer and then 2/3 are the tried and true older ones. Lively table games - we were told by multiple patrons that the casino has lots of local betters.

This place (Lake is mile away) advertises in the local papers that they have the loosest slots....I found no credibility to this statement and therefore - highly INVALID claim. More like "the Loosest teeth in their staff" - I found to be extremely valid!!! And did I mention definitely the smokiest casino in the entire U.S. I'm convinced of this... More

Thanks for visiting Lakeside Inn and Casino. Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy yourself on your Tahoe vacation. We understand that it's frustrating to be "mad on vacation" and we apologize if we played a factor in that. We have air filtration systems placed throughout the casino to help eliminate smoke. Have safe travels back to the two biggest... More
