Executive Chef Trent Bissell designed the menu, digging into his northern Alabama roots for ideas. Along with Alabama flavors, the restaurant incorporates Carolina, Creole and Cajun tastes.

 “Growing up in the South, barbeque and smoking meats was always a passion and a hobby for me,” says Bissell. “I’m excited to bring my years of experience cooking authentic southern specialties to Lake Tahoe.”

Menu items include classic homemade biscuits and gravy for breakfast, a pimento cheese appetizer for lunch and chopped pork for dinner.

The space at Ten Crows features an outdoor patio, flat screen TVs, and a terrace with games and fire pits in the summer

To those who've only seen it on a map, Lake Tahoe is an intriguing blob straddling the California/Nevada state line. Insiders know, however, that “Big Blue”—America’s largest alpine lake at 22 miles long and 12 miles wide—is a place of multiple moods and faces. Yes, the Nevada side has gambling. But regular visitors orient themselves instead in terms of North Shore (accessed by Interstate 80) and South Shore (on the Highway 50 corridor).
