Had the Hemp Burger and it was extremely bland. I went back a second time and had the stir fry but it was even more disappointing. A family member had it the first time I visited and it was great, but my order did not taste like the same meal - very bland. Good atmosphere though for live music.

I was extremely tired and hungry by the time I arrived in Dalles, this was my stop-over from John Day Fossils Beds National Monument to Seattle. I basically rolled into town, and this was the first place I found once I seen civilization. Checked it's ranking in Tripadvisor - 15. That will do. It looked attractive, there was a patio... More

I went to the Rivertap for dinner and a beer and the place was awesome! Hailey was very knowledgeable about the menu and the beer on tap. It was busy but her service was excellent. I will definitely return my next time in town! Thank you!

I stumbled upon this place while driving down the street looking for something to eat. My mother and I were headed from Easter Oregon back to Portland to catch the plane home to Lubbock. The lunch special included tacos as it was "Taco Tuesday. I used to be skeptical of anything non-chain restaurant in Oregon that served tacos or other... More

Popped into Rivertap for lunch on our way to Portland. It was a sunny Thursday afternoon and we got to enjoy the outside tables. Unfortunately there was only one waitress on duty and quite a few customers so service was very slow. Despite the slowness, she was very friendly and apologetic. Food was exactly what you'd come to expect from... More

As we speak I am sitting at the river tap trying to enjoy a night out without kids and it turns into a night of being ignored. In an hour and a half I had our waitress bring us one drink. It doesn't matter how busy you are or how new you are...STILL customer service should always be number one.... More

Rivertap is my bar away from my own home bar. The beer selection is the best in The Dalles and the food is fantastic. Sometimes the service isn't breakneck speed, however that gives you more than enough time to enjoy the atmosphere. Be it the live music, big screens, or just the friendly people around you enjoying a pint of... More

The Rivertap is my home away from home. I wrote a review last year and I am still proud to say how much I love this place still! The daily specials make it hard for me to stay away. I especially love the $5 margaritas with my $2 Fish Taco on Taco Tuesdays. The staff is amazing!! From Jasmine's sparkling... More
