Tahoe and Yosemite's restaurant scene is considered rather casual. Erna's Elderberry House Restaurant definitely offers the best experience between the Sierra Nevada and San Francisco (the food and atmosphere are outstanding; it is not comparable to anything in the Fresno/Sierra Nevada area).
Most of the restaurants in our area are family-style places or chain/fast-food restaurants; they offer Mexican, Italian and Cajun/Louisiana, as well as American fare. In the vicinity there is also a restaurant called Narrow Gauge, which resembles the atmosphere of a cozy Swiss chalet and is located in the forest. Their cooking style is American with international influences.
