Where Tahoe Friends Meet!

“Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your name!” The lyrics to the 1980s hit Cheers, accurately describe the feeling one gets at Mott Canyon Tavern & Grill in Tahoe, located on the Nevada side of South Shore.
“We cater to locals, but serve many out of town visitors who call Tahoe home at different times of the year,” says Mark White, who has owned the bar and restaurant since the beginning in 1997.
“Our goal has always been to provide great food, great drinks, and a warm, friendly atmosphere.”
If you’re looking for delicious, reasonably priced, well-proportioned food, a wide selection of beverages, and a relaxed vibe, Mott Canyon Tavern & Grill in Tahoe is the place to visit.
Whether your interest is video poker on bar-top poker machines, pinball or video games, listening to music on their old-fashioned jukebox, or just relaxing, options are aplenty.
