Good Stop in The Dalles

The Rivertap should be known for it's friendly service by a great wait staff. The food and drink menu is excellent and the quality and quantity of food is outstanding. The outside patio is comfortable but is on the main road.

We stopped here after running a race in Cascade Locks, so I was pretty ravenous. We sat outside, which was a pretty nice area. The first waitress we had was pretty useless. She brought us one menu for two people and then never came back. We also found out later that there was a sheet for the daily specials and... More

We were on the way home to Seattle and stopped for dinner. What a great surprise. The fish tacos were great, the shrimp and chicken Cajun pasta was out of this world. Great service.

This place had slooooow service. I saw our meal sitting in the window and the waitress ignored them for five minutes. I had to ask for our food. It came cold. The menu is small. The bathrooms didn't have soap. Go somewhere else.

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.
