Bad on sooo many levels!

I have lived within 2 miles of this restaurant for over ten years and we used to be regulars. It has always been a bit of a dive, but I don't mind a good dive. Used to love the food and the location right on the Rum River. This place has gone straight down hill over the last few years.... read more

Many poor reviews come from 1 time visitors, I have had bad service or bad food at least once at every bar/restaurant ive been to many times, it happens. Ive never heard a complaint about the food, excepet for being out of it, the prices are low compared to the average. I can laugh at many of the reviews on... More

I had the ribs, my friend had a chef's salad. Both were fresh, and tasty. Personally, if you are visiting nearby, I'd stop in for a meal. You will not be disappointed!

We ate there for the first time this weekend. No ambiance. This is a bar. But the burgers were very good. The drinks were good (strong). The waitress, Monica, was great - friendly, informative, prompt. This is really just a bar with no ambiance, but we had a really good time and will return.

We went for prime rib dinner. It was horrible. I think the meat was boiled, the salad was just lettuce, green beans on the side in a plastic cup. Atmosphere was no good. I asked for a Captain Morgan, Diet Coke in a tall glass and was told by waitress they couldn't do that. We will never go back or... More

The pork fritter and the pulled pork sandwiches were both near inedible. The beer tasted like the tap had not been cleaned in years. The iced tea was pretty good. Needless to say not impressed and felt compelled to let others know before they make a mistake. Don't let the cars outside fool you like they did me. They are... More

I have lived near this establishment for about 8 years, and I have always liked our little town of Saint Francis. However, a restaurant/bar that has the kinds of nightly customers and day to day staff members like Rum River Inn, is what ruins our little towns. This is one of the few sit-down restaurants in Saint Francis, and it... More

Over served losers. The owners son on a Tuesday night at 10pm falling over three barstools to the floor, obviously over served and the staff makes excuses that he is the owners son, he should be mortified! Disgusting place in need of bar rescue. Pitiful. Can only imagine what the kitchen looks like, yuck!

It's never been great, but at least tolerable until now. They have managed to lose my business for good. Hair cooked into my meal and management said tough beans, no comp. Well guess what...you lost my business over a $6 meal. Good for you.
