Great casual meal spot

This is the second time we came here as a small group (10 people) after kayaking on the river out of Burke's. It's the perfect spot when you're a bit tired and a bit dirty and just want a cocktail (or beer/wine) and a good hamburger or sandwich. Sometimes they have the BBQ going in the back.

Stopped for lunch and we were treated to such a long wait for food that we had to have our food wrapped and leave to make our next tasting appointment. We chose to sit outside and the flies were thick. I wouldn't recommend this place at this time.

We recently stayed for a week near Guerneville, CA. We had driven by the pub several times and it looked unremarkable. But one evening we decided to stay close to the inn for dinner and the Russian River Pub was recommended to us. It was a wonderful surprise! The service was excellent, the ambiance warm and friendly, and the food... More

Very cute cabin type beer/sports pub. Indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly staff. But the food? Prime rib french dip was worse than Arby's...i sent it back which I've hardly ever done in my life. My husband's hamburger was ordered medium rare and came well done, but he ate it anyway. The side dishes of onion rings and three bean salad... More

Convenient location on the river, good food, nice beer selection. Has the local cabin in the redwoods feel which its with the locale. A great spot for dinner with friends.

We love to eat here when we stay at the campground next door. I recommend the tri tip sandwich or pesto chicken sandwich for lunch/dinner. And upgrade to the waffle fries! And their blue cheese dressing is the best. For breakfast, crab cakes Benedict is delicious, as are all of the Benedict options. Can't go wrong with the chicken fried... More

We camped near here a couple years ago and are planning a trip this year, too. We enjoyed SEVERAL meals here and it was awesome! We have five kids and some restaurants assume we will be a bother or treat the kids like babies. These folks treated us like a fun group of people and we really enjoyed ourselves! To... More

A little known secret is the RR Pub serves an awesome breakfast on weekends albeit a little later than most. Having had a least a half dozen breakfasts (10 am and after) at this wondrous little hole in the wall. I have never left disappointed. Most memorable was the Moco Loco a Hawaiian favorite and it has stuck in my... More

We were looking for a light but quick dinner after way too much food over the last few days. Someone suggested this Pub would be just right. Were they ever wrong. We had a couple of burgers which were huge and very good. Very good service and a good selection of beers but if you are looking for a light... More

We stopped here on a recent visit to the area. We'd been driving and seeing the redwoods nearby and thought it would be a good stop, based on TA reviews. The dining area was almost empty around 1 pm, but we figured it was early in the week. We noticed that it had been featured on Guy Fieri's DDD (no... More
