Short guide to Food in Incline.
Many places are closed Mondays, especially in the off season. If it’s midnight, Rookies and the Hyatt Casino are pretty much your best bet. For your fancy night out, check out Bite (no reservations unless you have six people), Soule Domain (in a real log cabin, reservations strongly suggested), or the Lone Eagle Grill – great views, great food, great wine, impressive final check). Austin’s has good food but really outstanding salads (try the beet salad for lunch). We have Starbucks, but check out IV Coffee Labs for the local experience. Tunnel Creek is great for breakfast and lunch and a great place hike and see the great lake views. For Pizza MoFo’s is the classic Italian and the local institution. There is a dough bar to keep the kids occupied playing with dough. Jiffy’s is more east coast. Rookies has great pizza and is always open. T’s BBQ is the classic very small shop (cash only!) while Gus’s is a full restaurant.
Most restaurants have bars. Bite’s is particularly nice, While Crosby’s is a classic bar/restaurant. Lone Eagle is the most upscale bar, right on the water. Alibi is the brewpub, Rookies the sports bar if you have to catch the game. Brewfora has a huge beer selection, great food, industrial atmosphere. If you want wine tasting – then Glasses is your destination. The Local (next to Bite) is the local hangout. The Paddle Wheel Saloon is the most old style. The Village Pub is also a local favorite. The last two have darts.
The closest ski resort is Diamond Peak – about 5-8 minutes away.
About 20 minutes gets you to Mount Rose (with a base at 8260′ – Where the snow is(tm). Further afield in North Lake are Northstar (20-35 min), Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, (about 45 min) and Homewood (45 min).
