River view

Great seats and great service! They had a great selection of food options, but we were in the mood for burgers and they did not let us down. The covered patio brought us in and the food hit the spot.

Atmosphere, location, staff and service were great. Unfortunately the food and drink were not. There are so many restaurants in Salida that have great food it's a shame that I can't give a better review.

Great place to eat tacos and have a cold beer in the afternoon right above the ark river. A must stop to eat at if in tha salida area. You won't be disappointed.

This was a great place to relax and have a drink after a day of White Water Rafting. The menu has a wide variety of food. We ate from the Tex-Mex side of it and it was excellent. Watching the kayaks in the rapids up stream was good entertainment.

We came in for lunch after the farmer market and were seated right away with our party of six. Food was great, we ordered an array of different options and all were pleased. We love the location, it was beautiful outside and we could see all the fun being had on the river.

The atmosphere is awesome because you are right on the river, but the restaurant is often overwhelmed with customers and the staff and the kitchen bust their butts really hard to try to stay on top of it. Uptight city folk don't cotton to that too well. Townies who are on vacation and willing to kick back, just enjoy the... More

We went for the ambiance. We were sat next to the river and were able to enjoy watching kayakers and people swimming. The food was good, but nothing that blew my mind.

We stopped here based on reviews. Wow! Must have been an off day bc the reviews make this sound good. We didn't even stay for the food. We were offered a table on the patio overlooking the alley. It was lunchtime and warm. Our table had no umbrella. We asked to be moved inside and did not get much response.... More

It's disappointing that this was the impression we left you with. Customer service is one of our top priorities, and we know it can make or break any experience. I'm sorry that you didn't like where you were initially seated. There are cases where we're simply left without options when it comes to switching tables. Because of the way we... More
