    Whenever the owners are onsite you know you’re in for a very special experience. The ambiance & atmosphere was electric. Our hostess was fantastic, she knew exactly how to bring us an amazing experience. Now the good part, the food was a 10 in every aspect. Presentation & prepared to perfection! My wife and I were so impressed and grateful to be able to dine at one of the finest restaurants in North America, Tahoe City! I’m biased as I grew up in this lovely town! Hats off and cheers to owners, Alex, Amanda, our hostess Janice the chef and amazing staff! What gifts you’ve all been given! Derrek & Marci

    My wife and I dined at the Smoke Door on a Thursday night. We enjoyed the 6 course tasting menu. It was flawless, unique, rare, and exceptional in every aspect. The only downside was that the final bill was around $500 for dinner for two, so to be reserved for very special occasions. At any rate, in the end I am still a fan. Definitely will be back.

    Great burger. Salsa and most mex dishes very mild (too mild for my taste). Generous portions. Family friendly.

Discover Carnelian Bay

North Lake Tahoe is a unique city that straddles the border of California and Nevada. Carnelian Bay is nestled in the region and offers a dining scene that consists of an interesting mix of comfort foods and seafood options. Fish is the mainstay of many dishes available at fine-dining restaurants, showing off the taste of the lake. Locals often enjoy seafood and other protein choices with vegetables such as fresh string beans and carrots. Barbecue is also a favorite option in Carnelian Bay at a number of local joints specializing in tender Southern-style meats. These smoked meats made in the Alabama tradition continue to grow in popularity and are an excellent choice for some Lake Tahoe American comfort food.
