The service could have received a 4 Star rating if the staff was more focused on the customer. There seemed to have a training going on for the espresso machine and the conversation regarding the proper recipe for coffee drinks could be heard by th customers. Training needs to be completed and up to speed before customers are in the restaurant.
Food was tasty and very ample.

We are locals and have dined at Bar of America for many years. It’s a fun place to dine although it can be noisy at times. We usually order the swordfish or sea bass and have not been disappointed. The food is good and the servers are friendly.

Frustrating experience with the manager. Asked to sit at a table next to the one they suggested. While standing there waiting the manager said he could not make any changes cause “everything would go wrong”. Not a great start to the meal as it was literally one four top to another and within 5 minutes another group of four sat there and we both left at the same time with the same server.

Server was great. Pizza was sub par but martini was great. Too bad as the manager’s lack of any flexibility will make me think twice before returning.

Every time we come up to the Tahoe area we eat here, it’s a great solid staple. Food is always good but I. Suggest making reservations during the peak seasons!

Christmas Day, so very crowded, which was expected.
Service was good and server very cordial.
Some of the entrees were fine, but some overcooked and may have been sitting on a warming table too long.
It's probably better to stick with the basics- pizza, hamburger, etc. than to go for fine dining.
