Located on the state line of California and Nevada, the Hard Rock Cafe Lake Tahoe has become a draw for many seeking American cuisine with a side of rock ’n’ roll history in the area. During the summer months, it is especially appreciated for its large outdoor dining area.
Like any Hard Rock Cafe, the Lake Tahoe restaurant has music memorabilia throughout, including pieces from Elton John, Rob Zombie, and Dan Estrin. Musical instruments and wardrobe items are most common. The unique part of this Hard Rock Cafe is the alpine ski lodge design, which fits right in with the Tahoe atmosphere. The event space offers frequent live music and nightly happy hour specials.
With salads, side dishes, and a variety of beverages, the menu features mostly burgers and smokehouse entrees like pulled-pork sandwiches, hickory smoked ribs, and barbecue chicken. There are also kid-friendly and gluten-free options.
The Hard Rock Cafe Lake Tahoe is located beside the Stateline in Nevada. Get there by exiting Highway 50 for Harveys Lake Tahoe. There’s also a Hard Rock Hotel located nearby.
