Fodor's Expert Review Gar Woods Grill and Pier

$$$ Carnelian Bay to Kings Beach Eclectic

The view's the thing at this lakeside stalwart, where you can watch the sun shimmer on the water through the dining room's plateglass windows or from the heated outdoor deck. Price wise, this is a better bet for lunch or weekend breakfast than for dinner, at which grilled steak and fish are menu mainstays, but specialties like crab chiles rellenos and pomegranate braised pork ribs also merit consideration.
