The most surprising thing we found was the quality of the food. Excellent and could feature in any upscale restaurant. Especially the appetizers. Local hangout..fun atmosphere..needless to say beer was excellent. Will go there again. Service/server was top notch.

I you've never been near the Heavenly Ski resort parking area while in Lake Tahoe you probably wouldn't know about this authentic Deutsches abendessen haus. Outstanding service and delicious, traditional food and bier make this a destination dining spot.

I stumbled across this place last year, but just had drinks, and was impressed by the beer selection. So, on our return for lunch today with friends, we decided to get a few items and share them around. We all had different draft beers, all...More

I'm actually from Germany and while this may not be totally authentic, it's really, really good. The schnitzel had the lightest crispiest breading. My husband devoured his meal and even my kids who always want chicken fingers and fries thought the schnitzel and kaese spaetzle...More

Our server was fantastic and handled our loud and thirsty group very well. This is not the place to go for gourmet food and beer, it is however a great place to go for a fun time with friends.

Himmel Haus is a German restaurant and bierhaus featuring a wide variety of German and Belgian beers and wines with a simple menu of Bavarian-inspired food. While we will offer some strictly traditional recipes throughout the year, our vision is to take the customary ideas and theories of German Cuisine and give them a contemporary, California twist. Our goal is to serve only the finest and freshest local and sustainable products we can find, from local dairy and organic produce to humanely-raised meats, showcasing these amazing products in our German-inspired fare. Himmel Haus is committed to applying sustainable business practices, and to becoming a go-to locals' spot in South Lake Tahoe.
