“This restaurant sets the standard for our new COVID dining world.
They took all the precautions, made us feel incredibly comfortable and the staff was so respectful of space.”

5 Star Review, July 2020


Pier reservations feature a pre-fixe menu, details below. Sunday, September 27 is the last day the pier will be opening for dining for the season.

All other restaurant seating at the West Shore including our lakeside deck. Standard restaurant menu. 

Pier Dining Reservations

One of Lake Tahoe’s only over-the-water pier dining experiences, the West Shore pier is a perfect way to celebrate special occasions including birthdays and anniversaries, or for a relaxing dinner with a spectacular view.

Pier specific dining reservations will now be accepted separately from general West Shore reservations, due to the increase in requests and to policies limiting tables in that space. Pier dining is available until Sunday, September 27th, please book your reservation before this date. 

Lunch features a pre-fixe menu, including one appetizer or salad to split between two people, and one entrée. Drinks, desserts, and other menu items can be added to the bill and are an additional cost. Pricing for lunch is $50 per person. Tax and gratuity will be added to the final bill.

Dinner features a pre-fixe menu, including a welcome drink, an amuse-bouche, one appetizer or salad, and one entrée. Drinks, desserts, and other menu items can be added to the bill and are an additional cost. Pricing for dinner is $100 per person. Tax and gratuity will be added to the final bill.

If we are forced to close the pier due to inclement weather you will be contacted by our staff and offered a reservation within our general seating (if available) or can choose to roll your reservation over and dine with us at a different date.
