We stopped in this restaurant while in The Dalles. It was a nice bar/restaurant. The food was good, but nothing stupendous. They had a nice selection of local beers.

Traveling with your dog can be a challenge: we hate leaving her in the pet-friendly hotel room, and we NEVER leave her in the car. When Rivertap showed up on the 'pet friendly' list of places with good beer selection and good food we gave it a shot. In the back of my mind I was thinking we were 'settling'... More

Got hungry on the highway and was so presently surprised by this place. Service was friendly. Loved the grilled chicken and berry salad. The beer battered fries are phenomenal. Mediterranean option was great. Sit outside. It is fresh and has good shades

I liked the place: food, location, service, ambiance, beers, just a short walk from my motel; the salmon dinner was excellent with an interesting combination of root vegetables, herbs, and the salmon; the beers were from a brewery across the river, in Washington (sorry, forgot its name).

Loved the Fish Tacos....nice selection of sandwiches along with beer. Wine is probably available too, I just wanted a good, cold beer with my taco.

The food is really good but the waitress was scatterbrain Jane. If you can put up with poor service for good food, this place is for you. I give it one thumb's up, solely for the food.

I like this trendy pub in downtown The Dalles. They have a lot of beer choices (as you would expect from a pub) and some Oregon and Washington wines as well. The guy at the hotel where I was staying recommended the Rivertap. He said they don't have a big menu, but what they do have they prepare well. I... More

Great pub food! We were lucky enough to enjoy a live band the night we ate here. The food was very good and prices reasonable. I had the grilled portable burger and loved it! My husband had the BLT and thought it was very good. We really enjoyed the pub atmosphere/ambiance and our waitress was good too! They have a... More

Had the Thai chicken wrap, Very good choice. Lighter fare than some brew pubs. Good beer selection. Not much in the way of atmosphere but nice place.

We were traveling from Portland to the John Day Fossil Beds and stopped in the Dalles for lunch. Even though we showed up a few minutes before they opened, the young woman graciously let us in and served us, even though she was still setting up. I had the Bruschetta, and my mother had the Artisan Quesadilla. Both were outstanding!... More
