Our company is comprised of four iconic Lake Tahoe area restaurants- Gar Woods Grill & Pier, Riva Grill on the Lake, Caliente Southwest South, Bar of America and our Waterfront Nevada Restaurant Sparks Water Bar.
Gar Woods & Riva Grill each showcase the classic ambiance of Tahoe’s wooden boat era and are home to the famous "Wet Woody"®, a drink that must be experienced with over 3 million sold!
Gar Woods is located in picturesque Carnelian Bay next to the Sierra Boat Company. In summer months, guests may take advantage of Gar Woods' deep water, 130-foot pier and arrive by boat.
Riva Grill has been South Lake Tahoe's favorite waterfront dining destination since 1998. Located in the Ski Run Marina, Riva Grill's floor-to-ceiling windows and large deck provide breath taking views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierras. Boat valet is available at Riva Grill as well.
Caliente is located in nearby Kings Beach. Think Santa Fe, or as we like to say, “Southwest, South”. Following an elaborate remodel, Caliente opened in 2007 and today stands as a stunning example of the Kings Beach revitalization in progress. Caliente boasts an extensive tequila menu and specializes in the flavors of the American Southwest and beyond. The rooftop Palapa Bar and dining deck are popular spots in warmer months. Combine your meal with a premium Thunderbird Margarita or Caliente's signature drink, The "Chupacabra", for a dining experience to remember.
Bar of America, home of the "Cock-Tail", was added to our restaurant family in 2012 and we are excited to expand into historic downtown Truckee. For more than four decades the Bar of America has been a mainstay for Truckee nightlife. Synonymous with great live music, good food and plenty of free-flowing libations, the Bar of America has provided a happy hour hangout and weekend watering hole for locals and visitors alike.
Sparks Water Bar located on the Sparks Marina in Sparks, NV. Summer of 2021 we welcomed our newest member to the Tahoe Restaurant Collection- Sparks Water Bar. You can now enjoy the famous "Wet Woody®" here in Nevada along with beautiful marina views and two floors of luxurious outdoor deck seating.
