My fiancé and I with great excitement booked our wedding at the West Shore Cafe! Travis was the Sales Associate that helped us book our date. Unfortunately, Travis no longer works at the West Shore Café. When we signed the contract, we paid a deposit of $5250.00. We were under the impression we would get a full refund if we cancelled 6 months prior to our scheduled wedding date. We had looked at several other venues and all contracts gave full refunds with a 6-month cancellation notice. My fiancé and I had a hardship happen to us with his current job and we had to cancel our wedding. We cancelled giving an 8 month notice that we could not have our wedding at the West Shore Café.
The communication from the West Shore Café drastically changed after we sent our cancellation notice. The response we received was the West Shore Café would not refund us unless they were able to rebook our wedding date. The Sales Associate Kurt said he could not help us and gave us his directors information to contact. The director Lisa Small was snide and not understanding at all. In the contract there is a clause that states “disaster” and my fiancé and I feel that his job situation qualifies under the “disaster “clause in the contract. Lisa replied the contract is referring to a natural disaster even though it doesn’t say natural disaster and then emailed that “law does not allow loose interruption of this clause and will actually take a more narrowed look at this clause in a legal setting.” Lisa then informed us we should have pursued legal advice if we deemed it necessary.
We do not want another couple to book with the West Shore Café unless they are aware that when they are taking your money, they are courteous and helpful but the second something goes wrong they are snide and not understanding.

Beautiful setting, we sat on the deck overlooking the lake and boat docks. Very picturesque, only negative was there were some hornets(yellow jackets) swarming. They get active in August but we switched some seats and that seem to help. We had fish tacos, chicken salad and the seafood salad. Fish tacos were made with halibut and were very good. Salads were good but not outstanding. Overall very nice lunch considering the setting and service. Would definitely recommend.

A delicious lunch outdoors on the pier in Homewood at Lake Tahoe

We found this place by chance when driving around Lake Tahoe. What a great place. Delicious food, great service and a view to die for sitting on the pier. They offer water taxi for boaters. Great to watch from the pier. Can’t wait to go back.
