For 30 years, Gar Woods Grill & Pier has been North Lake Tahoe's premier waterfront dining destination. Their 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 two. The Chef has created a menu highlighting California cuisine, hand cut steaks and fresh Pacific seafood, served in a 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 Gar Woods' world famous Wet Woody. With over two million sold you'll be in good company, but arrive early to get a seat. When visiting during the ski season thaw out in front of the three story tall river rock fireplace with a Warm Woody or a Heavenly bottom. Lake Tahoe sunsets are their specialty.
