General Info
Since 1988 Gar Woods Grill & Pier has been the premier North Lake Tahoe waterfront dining destination. Located in Carnelian Bay, our floor to ceiling windows, large deck and balconies provide breath-taking views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierras. Gar Woods Grill & Pier is an upscale casual restaurant that accommodates groups of 160 just as easily as groups of 2. Our Chef has created a menu highlighting California cuisine, hand cut steaks and fresh Pacific seafood, served in our fun in the sun atmosphere. The wine list is a collection of California's best-known vintners featuring more than a dozen wines by the glass. Enjoy Tahoe's warm summer days sitting on our waterfront deck while sipping on a world famous Wet Woody. With nearly two million sold you'll be in good company but come early to get a seat. When visiting during the ski season thaw out in front of our three story tall river rock fireplace with a Warm Woody or a Heavenly bottom. Lake Tahoe sunsets are our specialty.

Nice lunch spot, Great views, decent food

Dined at Garwood after a local recommended the restaraunt to my wife and I. The restraunt is right on Lake Tahoe and the view is absolutely incredible. The service was excellent and we were seated promptly. I had the Lobster Bisque, which was average as far as flavor goes, and the Mahi Mahi Tacos, again average and lacking any true flavor other than the 'grilled' flavor. I won't comment on my wife's meal as she had soup and a grilled cheese sandwhich. The meal: two sodas, two soups, tacos and a grilled cheese put us back just over $50, rather expensive for what you get. I guess their is a built in supplemental charge for the lakefront rent and a surcharge for the spectacular view. Overall, only average. If this restaurant didn't have this location, I wouldn't recommend it at all...

Not that great. Food was overpriced for what you get. There are far better restaurants in the area. The whole place just seemed tired.

The burger wasn't even safe to order!

Visiting my family nearby for lunch. This Restaurant as great potential... location for one! We were walking to our table... I notice our neighboring tables' entree salad... I thought that is crazy! 1/2 case of Mesclun Greens with 3 thin slices of beef tenderloin? Our waiter was pretty good for being so young. ""THE FOOD NEEDS ATTENTION""! My burger was over cooked and torn-up from using tongs to turn it on the grill, missing cheese and it was paste together with 1/2 cup of mayo, old lettuce & tomatoes. My Wife ordered the Filet Migon, look very good... but the waiter said she would be able have mashed potatoes or a baked. Never happened! She ended up with a side of Red Bean-Gorbonzo Bean-Pimiento Salad that shouldn't be serve in any restaurant! My Mother order the Clams, She lives in Reno... I guess that is why she didn't complain... her expectations are not high, one she doesn't eat-out much. I'll ask her question for her... Why so many capers? It was nice in Lake Tahoe, but I'm not sure where we'll eat next time?
