PlumpJack Cafe & Bar
Eat well. Enjoy thoroughly. Return often.
Sure, we're biased — but we're not alone: PlumpJack Cafe is widely regarded as Lake Tahoe's premier dining destination. Fine dining and exceptional wines are in our heritage, and we'd love to share our passion with you on your next visit.
Under the guidance of Executive Chef Wyatt Dufresne, our menu changes each season so that we can take advantage of the bounty of fresh produce available to us locally. Our award-winning wine list provides the perfect complement to your meal, and renowned winemakers join us throughout the year for wine dinners and special events.

We believe wine is one of the great pleasures of life.
When the first PlumpJack Cafe opened in 1994, we became the only top restaurant in San Francisco to sell wine at retail prices. Today, value continues to be a cornerstone of the PlumpJack wine program at all of our properties. Our extensive wine list and wines by-the-glass program are hand-selected by the chef and sommelier for your enjoyment.
