Spindleshanks American Bistro and Wine Bar represents the best of both old and new Lake Tahoe. Opened in 2000 by partners Steve Marks and Harman Schuchmann, the restaurant has become a Tahoe Vista institution in a short amount of time. By offering regional American cuisine and a variety of wines in a casual atmosphere, the pair created a dining experience that caters to both large families and couples seeking a romantic evening.
We had a very enjoyable evening here. The food was amazing, and we received personal attention from the wine steward who was more knowlesgable than us (a couple of Napa freaks who know a thing or two about wine) to help select some great bottles from their reasonably extensive list. Lots of half-bottles and wines by the glass. Please try the baked oysters, but if you have a triple bypass, it's not my fault!
