Gar Woods Grill & Pier

Lake Tahoe



Gar Woods Grill & Pier is ideally situated on the north shore of Lake Tahoe in beautiful Carnelian Bay and showcases the nostalgic ambiance of Tahoe’s classic wooden boat era. The waterfront location offers sweeping vistas of the lake and surrounding mountains, providing an unparalleled setting for a spectacular wedding on the lake. The beautiful view, outstanding food, and central location makes Gar Woods one of the finest banquet facilities on Lake Tahoe. The easily accessible long pier offers great possibilities for those wanting to make a dramatic entrance or exit by boat. Upstairs, private dining rooms provide the perfect location for a reception. A lake view balcony runs the length of both rooms and serves as a great space for sipping cocktails with your guests. With floor-to-ceiling windows and an “Old Tahoe” feeling with exposed beam ceilings and hickory chairs, the facilities are hard to beat. By choosing Gar Woods Grill & Pier, your California lakeside wedding will come to life and be memorable forever.
