Christy Hill

Plenty of restaurants in Tahoe City have views of the lake, but Christy Hill backs that up with some really incredible food. While nearly every seat has a fantastic view, it’s dishes like sweet corn risotto and Moroccan spiced lamb loin that make reservations here hard to come by. If you don’t want to drop $40 on entrees, head to the summer-only Christy Hill Sandbar for a glass of wine and light bites with a slightly smaller price tag. It’s directly behind the restaurant on the lakeside, with more of a boat-shoes-and-sun-visors vibe—there’s outdoor bar service and a food truck doing lobster rolls, charcuterie, and oysters.
