Brook's at Edgewood golf course has the view and the vittles

Next time you stir your appetites with a hike or a jet-ski excursion at Lake Tahoe, consider some luscious bites at Brook's Bar & Deck at the Edgewood Tahoe golf course. Yep, it's casual.

The well-landscaped outdoor patio - surrounded by the snow-pocketed Sierra - overlooks a slice of the lake and some gorgeous acreage of fairways and putting greens. We sat at a table under a giant umbrella and cruised a straightforward menu of appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts.

A big hit was the half-pound sirloin burger on ciabatta with lettuce, tomato, sliced red onion and, in our case, Dijon mustard ($14). For an additional $1 each, choose from among three cheeses, applewood-smoked bacon, sauteed mushrooms, guacamole, Ortega chile and grilled onions.

Also tops: Firecracker Salad, skewers of juicy chicken satay atop greens and a confetti of diced yellow and green bell peppers, with marvelous peanut-based dressing; tender tri-tip French dip with intense jus; and a twist on fish 'n' chips - beer-battered salmon instead of the usual pollock or cod.

Edgewood is at 100 Lake Parkway, Stateline, Nev. (in back of Harveys). Open 7 a.m.-9 p.m. daily until mid-October. Info: (775) 588-618,
