My girlfriend and I went out here after a day of skiing, and made the mistake of sitting first in the dining room. Once we got our wits about us, we moved into the bar / lounge, and enjoyed the views of a foggy lake Tahoe. I had a most wonderful Moscow Mule, and her a great glass of wine, and we shared some lite apps. Cozy chairs - always a plus.

Lucked out and was able to get a window table without a reservation.
What an amazing atmosphere to dine to. Lovely evening with great food and service.
We ordered the fish which was very good. But the main attraction was dessert. First time having the hula pie. Wow!! That was a great finish to a wonderful dinner.
I don't know if the view just makes everything seem better. Just wonderful all around.
A must-stop if in Tahoe City.

We ate dinner at Jake’s on a Monday night and had to wait approximately 45 minutes (should’ve made a reservation). After eating there, we realized why the wait took awhile on a week night. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was very nice. We went with young children and didn’t have a problem. Service was excellent! I’d recommend visiting Jake’s!

It is located on the lakefront so it must have excellent view for your lunch. Too bad, we were there for dinner in winter, so it is just pitch dark outside.

Food is reasonable good, not as elegant as fine dinning, but it is satisfying after a day of skiing in the nearby Squaw.

It does have a large parking area upfront.
