Excellent Lunch time menu with excellent service

A former guest of Oscar W on the river. the American Hotel is excellent - Décor, food etc. The standard set must be a challenge for the other Hotels

We are hoping this is only a temporary move? The staff were excellent,however we could not really carry on a conversation due to the loud music being played ,and there is no view and little or no atmosphere as it is a tiny room at the back of the hotel. We would not eat here again, and the prices were... More

The Echuca local govenment hang your head in shame for displacing the staff and management of the iconically positioned victorian stalwart in culinary delight Gone but never forgotten over all the beautiful nights had there on the banks of the murray

We ate at Oscar's kn owing full well that it is sadly no longer on the wharf side, with the magnificent river views and the paddle steamers chugging by. The new site at the newly rebuilt American Hotel was a little daunting, however were pleasantly surprised that other than the location change, the meal and service was still sensational. We... More

Now in American Hotel not the wharfside. Good food and attentive pleasant service but is a bit noisy with the main hotel action just a few meters away. Would go again

Was this premier restaurant in Echuca but has closed down to dispute between owner and local council. Great loss to Echuca locals and tourists.

This restaurant offered plenty - delightful riverside situation, exciting menu and extensive wine list but the apparently disinterested staff spoiled our experience. It seemed as though they saw us as unwelcome intruders in their domain - possibly because we were all senior citizens! The food was presented well and proved tasty and the wine list mind boggling in its extent... More
