About Us

        In times gone by, Bear Beach was a shallow spot at Tahoe’s shore where wildlife could gather. Two inlet streams flowed into the lake near this point. And while civilization has driven bears farther up the mountain, we have seen coyotes, a bobcat, porcupines and American martens pass through our yard here at Bear Beach Cafe.

        We have owned and operated restaurants here at South Lake Tahoe for over 35 years, but always yearned for a location where guests and staff could enjoy a view matched only by our carefully prepared cuisine and sincerely friendly service.

        Finally, in 2008, we completed our remodel and preparations here at The Bear Beach Cafe. In our many years at Lake Tahoe, we have never – EVER – tired of this view. After all, this amazing and awesome mountain scenery is part of what attracts all of us, visitors and local residents alike, to come to Lake Tahoe. We’re sure you’ll enjoy it every bit as much as we do.
