Bringing in the New Year

We chose to have dinner here New Year's Eve. Our family arrived early to have appetizers during Happy Hour and drinks were very affordable However, one has to be careful as we later found out that Happy Hour pricing for some appetizers is for only half orders. In actuality, you may be paying... read more

I'm obsessed with the Thai Chicken Wrap. I'm actually trying to dissect the menu right now so I can try and reproduce it for dinner tonight, but I'm sure it won't be as good as Rivertap's. My husband and I ate here with local friends when we passed through town after the holidays. Not only is the food good, but... More

Good beer selection. Beers on tap rotate quickly and are always pretty fresh. Burgers are always good. Tuesdays has a good happy hour special on tacos.

Thought this place would be great to have a beer and pulled pork. Beer tasted like the tabs had not been cleaned since opening. The pulled pork was cold and fries were greasy. The cooks kept going in and out side smelling of cannabis and wearing dirty clothes. Not a good first impression. To top it off I got food... More

Late lunch at the Rivertap. Thought we would try it, as they occupy what had been a Mexican food place. Much better use of the property. Fish and Chips had the killer fries. Don't know about the fish part. I think it was Halibut, and not Cod and had a weird breading. My wife had an Asian type dish. Said... More

We love stopping in at Rivertap Pub in The Dalles. We are never disappointed with the food and the choices of beer. I always find one I haven't tried. The outdoor seating is fantastic in the fall.

I stop here regularly coming back from fishing the Deschutes River and it always is a great experience: Welcomed at the door, friendly service, great food; fresh and consistent. Looking forward to my next fishing trip so I can order another Cannonball Burger.

Food came to the table not hot. Tasted like a shoe. Service is super slow. Waitress knew nothing about the beer they served there. Gross people outside with a begging dirty dog. Manager VERY rude to other customers with kids in front of us. Unpleasant and not going back! There are better places in The Dalles to go to (try... More

Great atmosphere and good food. We stopped in and were pleasantly surprised with the friendly staff and great food. The pear salad was delicious, the jalapeño spinach artichoke dip was very tasty, and the avocado chicken salad sandwich was really good. Thanks for making our night.
