The River Grill is located near the Y in Tahoe City and sits above the Truckee River. Fanny Bridge and the Lake Tahoe Dam are very close and worth a look. They recommend reservations and you can even request a favorite table. Their seasonal menus offer many starters, salads, soups and entrees. They have a nice wine list and serve beer, cocktails, martinis and other specialty drinks. They also have a great happy hour menu.
