The River City Saloon is the Gorge's premier music venue. Delicious food from scratch, handmade cocktails, and micro brews on tap. The menu includes mouthwatering Mountain Shadow burgers, scratch made soups, salads, sandwiches and steaks 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.

Great flat iron steak

Watched a game of lacrosse and had a flat iron steak here. The meal was well composed, and the amount was good. The interior of the bar is very picturesque, and the staff is friendly. Highly recommended.

I will start this off with, I don't like to post things on the web, but use the web to find good places to go when I am out and about. I was a little put off on going here because of the bad reviews of their security guy. I walked around the town for a while before i did... More

I’ve recently been able to have the opportunity to work from Hood River and I love it. This place is the best! Coming from larger cities, my only question is how can the awful River City Saloon door security staff make it in such a town? The little white guy has something to prove. The bad part about it is,... More

I hate to give a “Terrible River City Saloon Review”, but this is the only way our voices can be heard these days. I’m a 22-year-old college athlete enjoying another great summer in Hood River. I have loved and enjoyed Hood River in the summers for many years and I love the laid back none confrontation style here. With that... More

My experience after immediately walking into the River City Saloon was terrible. The sarcastic, 3rd string, five foot nothing bouncer has the tack and social awareness of a mental midget. I'm not sure where they found the guy, but all I can see from his actions is a power tripping mall security dropout. From that point, I've had a bad... More

I was lucky enough to be there for the 1-year anniversary of the new owner. I went to see a band, Tango-Alpha-Tango, and didn't realize just how great my experience would be. The staff and owner made me feel welcome and the food was delicious. The locals were friendly, informative and it felt like coming home. Good food, welcoming and... More

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.
