Although Garwoods, located lakeside on Tahoe’s north shore, is primarily a summertime destination—you can dock your boat at the pier and stroll in for a meal—it’s still a nice place to visit mid-winter (and it’s less crowded). They serve brunch, lunch, and dinner. Go for dinner, and order the orange-soy glazed ahi tuna or the rum peppercorn rib eye. You won’t want to miss their signature Wet Woody cocktail, a buzz-inducing concoction of rum and fruity juices (have two and you’ll need to call a cab home). Garwoods’ sister restaurant on Tahoe’s south shore is called the Riva Grill—it serves up the same delicious food and scenic views of the lake.
