River Grill Winter Oasis
The River Grill in Tahoe City is a favorite of both locals and visitors. It is one of very few restaurants that stay open year round, much to the delight of the residents in the area that have made it a fixture here. The fire pit continues to burn surrounded by the ring of snow, and a deep path cut from the back parking lot to the back door are both the result of massive amounts of snow from the recent storm.
The River Grill features a daily happy hour from 5 to 6 with great values on food and drink, and fabulous dining after 5 pm. The menu ranges from appetizers to burgers to entrees including steak and seafood. The interior is cozy in the winter, with a fireplace in the main dining room and a festive bar area. In the summer an extensive patio is popular for dining alongside the Truckee River. Live music on the weekends is featured in the summer as well. You can find more info on their website.
