Food Scene

Kirkwood has many breakfast, lunch, and dining choices, and the nearby towns of Markleeville, South Lake Tahoe, and Gardnerville have many more charming places to offer.
The Inn is over a hundred years old and a great place to have dinner. Get a table by the fireplace, and carb up for skiing hard tomorrow!

The Wall bar is great for lunch, but can be “ski resort priced”. They do serve a wholesome Bloody Mary, if you’re so inclined.

Cornice (known to locals as what used to be Bub’s), has had a few false starts since Vail took over, but has finally found its groove with pizza that’s bound to delight the kids. A good place for beer and watching the game on TV as well!

While groceries here will set you back a pretty penny (do your shopping at the Raley’s in Sutter Creek on the way up instead), the “G-store” makes excellent sandwiches that are a better bet for lunch than Montewolfe cafeteria.

Everything Else

If you feel like a 30 minute drive and there's no snow on the road, check out this place for insane amounts of meat, powerful Picon drinks and cold red wine poured generously in a tall glass. Not open for food on Sundays. Lunch is served till 2pm and call ahead if you want to order the rabbit for dinner.

If you visit South Lake, sushi at the bar at Naked Fish is absolutely great. Ask for the live scallops if they have them, and get a can of "Live Sake" (Kikusui Funaguchi).
