Great view with excellent food, though a bit pricey with $40+ entrees.
Everything is more than twice as expensive than it should be! $10 for a kid's smoothie?!? $25 for two small crab cakes? $15 for a caesar salad? Pasta dishes in the $30-40 range? I don't care how good the view is, that's ridiculous!
We were hoping for a quiet romantic valentines dinner date but the restaurant was loud with love music in the bar and kids everywhere. Live and learn- Presidents’ Day weekend in Tahoe is not serene for sure. The prices are high for what you get. The mashed potatoes were soup. Three stalks of asparagus? Definitely not headed back anytime soon.
Great spot. Love the bar scene and music.
Such a beautiful view. Book at sunset and walk out on the pier. Cocktails were well made.
Our server was great. He was friendly helpful and very up beat. The food was great and my son and I had a great time. Thanks for the hospitality.
Perfect location for the family or a date.
Beautiful views, excellent food and service.
Food is overpriced and of very average quality. This place is great for a cocktail in the summer, but there are much better restaurants in the area if you’re looking for good food.
Valentine’s Day. We had a good server on a busy night and were placed at a wonderful table overlooking the pier. Thank you!
friends valentines was perfect ! thank you
Fantastic Valentine's Day dinner with the family. The food was amazing, even on such a busy night, the scallops & crab risotto touched my soul! It is fine dining Tahoe-style!
Went for Valentine’s Day dinner. Wonderful views of the lake. Staff was very friendly & accommodating.
Disappointed in menu choices. Very expensive for what you get.
We ended up sitting upstairs and it was beautiful! Outstanding view! Four of us had excellent evening! Our waiter was smooth and polished. Everyone loved their meals and we shared nice bottle of wine. Well done GAR WOODS!!
Valentines Day 2020 was our second visit to this special place located on the north shore of spectacular Lake Tahoe. We came back after a wonderful anniversary dinner the previous summer and again we were not disappointed. They honored our request for a window table overlooking the lake, and while the setting alone was glorious, the service was great and the food was very good. We had seafood - I had the opakapaka, and my wife had the salmon. Both were prepared just right and were delicious. Our waiter’s suggestion for wine paired perfectly with both. While a bit pricey, GarWoods can’t be beat for a romantic, memorable evening with your sweetheart!
We ate at Gar Woods on a Tuesday night, so that is probably why it was so quiet. Prices are not cheap.
Our dinner was excellent. I had requested a view of the lake. We had a perfect table with a view of the full winter moon.
Always a great time and meal. The crab stuffed pepper appetizer was outstanding
Been coming here seasonally for 30 years. Worst, and most expensive, experience I’ve had yet.
Overpriced, mediocre food and we were crammed into a small space. Don’t mind paying when the food is good. Worked out $55 per person with no appetizers, no dessert and 1 drink. Most of us had salads and burgers. Don’t waste your money - you’re not missing anything!
We unfirtunatly didn't know about Friday activities at restaurant so noise level very high, however we were seated upstairs and once there noise level was good prices we all thought was very high
service by staff was excellent
Dean's Thai meatball soup was particularly delicious, in fact, I have never had soups like that!
Service was excellent food was delicious the view was breath taking!! Couldn’t have had a better time. Been coming here for years and I’ve never been disappointed.
The ambiance was great, beautiful views. Drinks were good, and the salad was good. The “go to” salmon dish had no flavor, very bland. My daughters hamburger tasted like it had freezer burn and was rubbery. Stick to the soups and salads and the ambiance might be worth it!
The Dinner was everything we expected. Be sure to take a walk on the pier for a great after dinner view. I do feel it was a little overpriced though.
Another great meal with wonderful service!! Always a special treat..
Server Bridget was great, food was great & audio soundtrack was really good!
Great service right from the host and on to our wonderful lake view table. Gunner, our server did a great job attending to us. Food was outstanding! Another good time at Garwoods!
Absolutely LOVE it here
Great Food ! Amazing Servers
Love my Torrie Hostees and her cute sista ❤️❤️
Enjoyed our meal here as a family of 4. Simple menu but good. Better than expected.
Just too expensive. $20+ appetizers, pricey drinks. Loud too.
Always good is so many ways. This place has been doing it so well for so long. Great choice to spend our New Years Eve here!
New Years Eve Lunch
Typical Tahoe overpriced.
Meals were good, but pricy for the Tahoe area. The only BIG negative was that we had fraud on our credit card the next day! I hope Gar Woods will look into this because we believe our card was compromised when we paid our bill.
We were amazed at the excellent Staff, and Amazing Food! More than anything, the View is out of this world! French Onion Soup was my favorite!! Can't wait to return in 2020. Thank you Elliott and Jen for the treat and the great pictures.
We always visit when we are in town, we love coming here but tonight was a little disappointing; the food wasn’t ask good as it normally is. Not sure if they changed chefs but the lobster ravioli has so much herbs in it you could not taste anything else and the lobster bisque came out cold. Not sure what they changed but things need to be adjusted a bit.
Great food, beautiful location - busy holiday night so wait staff was a bit hurried but still a wonderful experience.
Wet Willy was so good if you’re into the frozen drinks kinda thing!
This is a great place to take visitors. Food is good (not great), and the service is always excellent. The Wet Willy is awesome! Views are spectacular.
Great all the way around!!!
