Locally owned and operated since 2004

Off the Hook Sushi has quickly become the locals’ favorite spot for delicious food in a fun, upbeat, inviting atmosphere. Far from a traditional sushi restaurant, our California-style sushi bar puts a Western twist on an ancient Eastern food idea, offering so many unique flavors and ingredients you won’t find anywhere else. There are over 40 rolls on our menu, but the Sugar Mama, Fire in the Sky, and Gambler are a must try. We also have the best vegetarian maki selection around! The sushi is undeniably fresh as the chefs take the utmost care in breaking down and preparing the best quality fish available from whole into delectable bites for their customers.

Our extensive menu also includes a selection of cooked items such as udon noodle bowls, tempura, teriyaki chicken and salmon teriyaki. We offer a happy hour Monday, Thursday and Friday from 4:30 – 6 pm with discounted rolls, appetizers, draft beer and hot sake.

Located right in the middle of town on Highway 50, Off the Hook Sushi continues to strive to be a casual, yet high quality restaurant, cutting no corners when it comes to providing customers with an exceptional dining experience. Find out for yourself why Off the Hook Sushi has been voted “Best Sushi” by Lake Tahoe locals ten times since 2004. Most recently voted “Best Sushi,” “Best Seafood” and runner up for “Best Happy Hour” in 2018. Thank you for your support.

“Fire in the Sky” ( TripAdvisor )
Excellent rolls especially the "Fire in the Sky." We had a great time and will definitely come back on my next trip. I have been in several sushi places in Tahoe and this is by far the best.
Crunchy Granola
Hooked at “Off the Hook” ( TripAdvisor )
Returned to our spiritual home – Lake Tahoe, to eat at the best sushi restaurant I've been to. The food, cooked by Chi and his team of dedicated chefs was to die for. The mix of textures and tastes was excellent. We were extremely well looked after by Tizzy, an English lady, who treated us royally. It is a highlight our our trip each time we come back to California to visit this place. If you're in the Lake Tahoe area, don't miss out!

vegetarian sushi
L♥VED It! ( TripAdvisor )
This spot was a nice surprise. Very casual for a sushi restaurant, we sat outside on picnic benches and the staff were all extremely friendly and nice, happy people which can really make your experience. And the food topped it all. My husband and son are sushi lovers and me a vegetarian, and all of us loved our sushi. They actually had the most veggie sushi options I have seen and my dish – the Earthworm, was really delish. We will return the next time we are in Tahoe!

udon noodles
Nice Japanese Food ( TripAdvisor )
Came here for dinner before 6pm and the place was almost full. We ordered sushi and udon and both were great! Plenty of wine, beer and sake options. Certainly a great place for good Japanese food and some drinking.
Ahi Poke Happy Hour
The Best Sushi in South Lake Tahoe ( TripAdvisor )
My husband and I eat here or order take out almost weekly. The #1 reason is our addiction to the Poke Wonton Chips. So many fabulous and creative rolls – with vegan and vegetarian options – on this impressive menu! They also offer gluten-free organic tamari. The atmosphere and staff are lively and fun!
