    Beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. French onion soup was a bit salty, but the snicker cheesecake was good.

    Take a stroll down Garwood's Pier and watch the sun set over the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.

    Dining in Tahoe is like going back in time. Gar Woods is very 1983.

    Dark chocolate croissant bread pudding is to die for! And I don't usually like bread pudding

    Brilliant French onion soup, the drinks are brilliant. I especially like the Prickly Pear drink at Riva, Caliente, and Garwoods.

    Kristopher Hightower · September 2, 2013

    They have Cockspur rum - hard to find outside of Barbados

    Jim Stevens · August 24, 2013
  • Tami S.

    Sit on the bar side, inside or outside where it's no reservation and probably no wait.

    Black Strap-on Top sitting by the window is the perfect way to start the day!

    If you order fish tacos, ask for the mango marmalade from the prawns appetizer

    Wet Woodys are $15 a piece but well worth it! It's crowded at times but we love coming here. Great food and drinks!

    Wet Woodie Wonderland

    Quite popular but worth the wait. Great views of the water. Prime rib dip is stellar. Pair any food with the original woody drink or the pear and you can't go wrong.

    Wet Woody...need I say more?

    Spend the evening having cocktails by the fireplace with live music on Friday and Saturday. Plus it's North Shore Nights every Friday with raffles and prides from 6:30-9:30

    Great food and a great view of the lake! This place gets crowded quickly in the afternoon though.

    Have the "Sailor Jerry's Wet Dream" version of the Wet Woody - with fresh cream it's reminiscent of an orange dreamsicle

    Palmer Emmitt · June 2, 2012
