The owner and her staff were very nice and very good at accommodating a party of 10 who just dropped in. The meals were really delicious and exceptionally tasty. The service was enjoyable along with being fast and friendly. It earned its spot on DD&D.

We had read a lot about Russian River Pub and its spotlight on Dinners, Drive-Ins, and Dives so we made a special point to eat there during a recent trip. The servers were certainly nice and the food was OK but nothing seemed to set this place apart from any other pub or even a chain restaurant like Applebee's or... More

Drove by for YEARS before it was featured on Diners, Drive ins & Dives. Best wings ever! Try one of their house specials too - pulled pork or the tri tip. Daily specials are always awesome.

My men's fraternal group, E Clampus Vitus camped right next to The Pub. What a great place for a drink or food. I had a burger featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Now I know why they were picked! Excellent food, drinks and service. The owner and her staff were so friendly, I thought I was part of the family!... More

We just kinda stumbled into this place during our camping trip. It's only a few minutes from the Schoolhouse Canyon Campground. Little did we know we'd find a place that was on Diners Drive ins and Dives. Our families loved everything we ordered. The pesto chicken sandwich was great and all the burgers were good. Folks liked the Russian River... More

We had the spicy wings. They were actually spicy! So many places don't know how to make spicy things that are spicy. But these were good. They were tasty, and not too spicy. Son and I had the spicy burger, with pepperjack cheese and jalapenos. It was good, but a few too many jalapenos for me. Not that it was... More

Went here based on the yelp reviews and was not disappointed. It is a pub, and we were totally in the mood for some good food and chill place. Bartender was our waiter. Had a few beers and went for the prime rib sandwich and tri tip sandwich. The wings looked great and i heard about some turkey special that... More
