Description: Since 1988 Gar Woods Grill & Pier has been the premier North Lake Tahoe waterfront dining destination. Located in Carnelian Bay, our floor to ceiling windows, large deck and balconies provide breath-taking views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierras. Gar Woods Grill & Pier is an upscale casual restaurant that accommodates groups of 160 just as easily as groups of 2. Our Chef has created a menu highlighting California cuisine, hand cut steaks and fresh Pacific seafood, served in our fun in the sun atmosphere. The wine list is a collection of California's best-known vintners featuring more than a dozen wines by the glass. Enjoy Tahoe's warm summer days sitting on our waterfront deck while sipping on a world famous Wet Woody. With nearly two million sold you'll be in good company but come early to get a seat. When visiting during the ski season thaw out in front of our three story tall river rock fireplace with a Warm Woody or a Heavenly bottom. Lake Tahoe sunsets are our specialty.

Great view - fun place - staff are super friendly and it's a large seating capacity in and out- overlooks the lake, lots of parking - good sized portions and a large list if wet woodys (infamous cocktails) to choose from.

I made reservations with Open-Table and the restaurant was ready for us when we arrived even though it was very busy. I requested outside deck seating. The food is very good and the view is part of the experience. A good choice for Lunch or Dinner.

This is a great place for enjoying lovely drinks with the most amazing views of the lake. Good selection of liquors and wine. Food is excellent but nothing that is not fully Americana. Burgers tend to be a bit too cooked (which may be because the time they take to run them from kitchen to bar/dining deck). Seafood is traditional and excellent. salads have wonderful taste. Service not so great as place is crowded most of times.

Lively, good food, and a beautiful view. The crab sandwich was delishious and the cheese bread was good too.
Can't wait to return again on my next visit!

Famous restaurant in Tahoe. Great views and great service, but the food is just average. The view makes up for the food. It all depends on what you are looking for in a dining experience.
