About the restaurant
At Duke's, savor spectacular USDA Prime beef prepared to perfection while enjoying our extensive wine selection. The elegant ambience and extraordinary service is yet another reason Duke's is recognized as one of Northern Nevada's premier restaurants and was voted BEST Steakhouse in Carson City.

About the restaurant
A memorable dining experience awaits you as you enter the Christy Hill Restaurant in the center of Tahoe City. The restaurant sits on the shoreline of Lake Tahoe on an elevated embankment offering diners a panoramic vista. The intimate setting offers guests a view that is only upstaged by the cuisine, wine and service. Spectacular sunsets that can be seen from every table is just one of the many reasons that Christy Hill was voted "Most Romantic Restaurant" and "North Lake Tahoe's Iconic Restaurants with World-Class Views" by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Executive Chef, Luis Vallin, focuses on sustainability and innovation, supporting local merchants and farmers. The thoughtful and playful menu pays homage to the tradition of Christy Hill while continuing to uplift and propel the cuisine and restaurant into exciting new territory.

Exceptional as usual. First visit of 3 nights this week. Alex the new owner since last summer and Chef Luis have done a wonderful job enhancing the experience yet making sure to pay homage to the classics we have all come to love and expect. The beautiful view has not changed and certainly the dining experience is still outstanding. Always the best attentive return staff who are very engaging with guests, knowledgeable and professional. Tasting menu nice addition. Wonderful wine selections by JB! We are fortunate to have Chrissy Hill on North Shore. All the best. Jim and Caroline 💗

Kings Beach
About the restaurant
Located in historic Kings Beach and just minutes from the waterfront, Caliente takes its name from its diverse family neighborhood surroundings. Caliente specializes in the flavor of the American Southwest and beyond. Think Santa Fe, or as we like to say, “Southwest, South”. Caliente, opened on August 3rd, 2007 after an extensive remodel, is one very important step in the revitalization of the Kings Beach neighborhood. Today, Caliente stands on North Lake Boulevard as the stunning example of the Kings Beach remodel in progress. We take great pride in our creation and our clean, casual and friendly atmosphere awaits your visit. Caliente offers an unequaled and unique variety of quality fun, food and beverage at affordable prices. Dining out is more than just a meal, it is an event based on value and a wonderful experience. Combine our meals with generous premium Margaritas and our famous signature drink, The ChupaCabra, and we have created a dining experience to remember.

The manger was so nice and funny, he even gave us a shot glass after we took the shot ski. We had the chicken nachos and could not eat them fast enough, they were absolutely incredible. Staff was wonderful and knowledgeable, I would argue I prefer going here over Gar Woods!

Hard to choose a menu item as so many sounded great. The food we chose was excellent - it looked as good as it tasted. The service was fantastic, he was able to give suggestions and answered our questions. He was friendly and prompt even though it was a very busy evening.
