This restaurant is in the Best Western Riverfront Hotel in La Crosse. It has outdoor and indoor seating, and the outdoor view, atmosphere, and experience is beautiful. And of course the food was great! A must-go!

They actually changed their name to Black River Bar and Grill, but anyways, this restaurant is awesome, especially their prime rib. This restaurant is part of the Best Western Riverfront hotel and both the hotel and restaurant was amazing. You can go to eat here even if you are not staying at the hotel.

The servers were very good. We dined out on the deck. Weather was perfect, no bugs! Had a great view of the river. Was disappointed however with the menu. Needed a bit more variety. My friend and I ended up splitting an appetizer. It was just ok. River Jacks has recently changed to Black River bar and grill. When I... More

We’ve been here twice since they changed names and management and it was just as bad as the old River Jack’s. We only came back because we live close by. Both visits featured inexperienced bartenders who messed up our simple drink orders. Both times a waitress had to step in and fix our drinks. I didn’t know you could mess... More

Hostess was very nice but we had the worst waiter (Mark) ever. Thirty minutes before we got dinner rolls. 45+ minutes for appetizers after reminded him & he asked us what we ordered. Over an hour for food. Took my beer with 1/4 left and didn't ask if i wanted anything else. I've never not left a tip til tonight.... More

We stayed at the hotel and didn't feel like packing up the family to go out. Considering the convenience and price, it was just fine. We liked the food. The pizza was a bit salty, but not bad. The Greek salad was delicious. The beer was cold, the staff friendly, and the music wasn't too loud for our small children.... More

Pleasant surprise. After a long bike ride, it was nice to sit, relax, and just let go. The food was great, the Beer was coldd, and the view was Fantastic. I didn't expect such a nice restaurant at a Best Western.
