This place was such a memorable experience! We sat on the porch and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, while listening to great live music. The restaurant was full of locals and it was a delight to share some amazing music and good food in their presence. Stop over particularly on a sunday after a day in the national parks. Food can...

A good mix of locals and tourists, made to feel very welcome. Perfect for pizza and cold beer after a day in the park! You can sit and the bar and chat away to locals or sit on the deck watching the river pass by.

River view was recommended to us and I'm so glad that it was as we would have driven by otherwise. Although as first look it is a bar, it is a good bar with a wide range of drinks including beer from local microbreweries and a reasonable choice of wines. The restaurant is part inside and part outside overlooking one... More

Loved relaxing on the back deck, having a cold beer, and delicious food after a long day in Sequoia Nat'l Park.

The place has a nice view of the river. However, it took 30 minutes from the time we sat down until our order was taken. The food took a similar length of time to arrive (which would not have been a big deal if our order was taken promptly). The restaurant was not very busy, yet the table next to... More

Around 5 pm on July 4th weekend, my husband and I stopped by to check this place out for dinner. When we arrived it appeared to be more of a local, dive/biker bar, than a tourist restaurant. They do have a lot of seating inside and outside for dining. We ordered drinks, but decided to go elsewhere for dinner. They... More

One word to describe the food: mediocre Now the details: Biggest issue here was that nothing tasted fresh. Loaded jacket potatoes were no way on earth loaded. Even in European terms it was a very small portion almost child's portion. It was also supposed to come with sour cream with chives but this wasn't on the plate. The three rivers... More

We wanted to try another restaurant in our 2. Night at three rivers. It was unfortunately not a good decision. Our food was cold. We didn't eat it all then at the end it was more expensive than the other restaurant. Maybe instead of grilled chicken we should ve gotten burger. The service was slow but friendly.

I loved it in here. At first it feels like it might be a bit spit n sawdust but actually it was very pleasant with loads of character. There were proper big old boys with hats and moustaches lined up at the bar, but they didn't bat an eyelid when my friend ordered a diet beer which I thought was... More

This place is more of a bar with sandwiches. It has nice views and a deck overlooking the river. It is very casual. I had a French dip sandwich that was tasty and good beef, but served on dinky buns. The service was very, very slow.
