The River City Saloon is the Gorge’s premier venue delicious food from scratch, handmade cocktails, and micro brews on tap. The menu includes mouthwatering house ground burgers, scratch soups, salads, sandwiches and pastas with an emphasis on locally-sourced, seasonal, organic ingredients (farm to table). It’s the ideal location to catch the big game on one of the Saloons large flat screen televisions, play darts, Foosball or shoot pool.

There are very few places in town where I have been made to feel uncomfortable and unwelcome, but River City Saloon makes the list. The "doorman" looks me up and down like I was some kind of security risk. I stood at the bar for 15 minutes chatting with some other patrons, waiting for one of the two bartenders to... More

Live music with 4 TVs BLASTING football, one bartender OVERWHELMED with play-off crowds. Couldn't hear anything from the band onstage because of the rudeness and rowdiness of the sports fans. Pick a theme, friends. Music OR sports. Then get some more help, because the service was TERRIBLE.

Very nice bar and back bar. They have live music on every other week end, we missed the music weekend. Good bartender, he knew his liquor and made some good suggestions to the women in our group.

I love the fresh ground beef used in the gigantic hamburgers. You can definitely taste the difference. The pulled pork nachos are also a favorite. I only get them when I can share them and still have yet to finish the plate. Very clean bar, staff is often friendly and there is often great music.

I ordered the Bacon taco which the shell was made out of weaved bacon, talked with the cook and he said it took a couple months to perfect this little gem. The beer was cold and the staff very friendly, find this place and order the taco, it won't disappoint!

Nothing to stand out for me on this place. Typical bar food, nothing great, standard drinks, and service was just okay.
