Nice view of the river but average food

We had dinner here during a trip to Sequoia. The seating out back by the river is nice and relaxing. Wait staff was very friendly. Food was just OK. Basic and unremarkable. Pizza was the best thing we ordered. Ribs were the worst.

Burgers, beer and pizza just outside Sequoia National Park always taste better after a day of hiking. They had life music on the nite we visited. Great casual juke joint feel,with a large patio next to the Kiaweh River.

When a restaurant is hopping, you know the place is good, and it is! We had the big T, medium pie for $18, and loved it. Tuesday, August 4, 2015.

This is not a place to go for fancy drinks or white tablecloths, but if you're looking for a laid back, family run bar and grill this is the place. The veggie pizza was very good. They have lots of outdoor seating but we just ate at the bar as it was the hottest part of the day. The place... More

The karaoke music and bad singers were too loud, so we didn't get a good look at the inside. We ate outside and the fried chicken was okay. The view of the river is great. This seems more like a biker bar/restaurant. Not so much for families. Our friend said that bathroom had roaches in it. Not good for the... More

Food was okay. I ordered the cheeseburger. It was over salted. Three of my dining companions ordered the baby back ribs. They didn't get what they ordered. Instead they were given pork ribs which were tough and almost impossible to eat. The waitstaff was obliging and took off 25% off of the total bill because they didn't get what they... More

We enjoy sitting out on the deck, but sometimes the "usual's" can get a bit drunk & obnoxious. The music varies from great like Merthan Drive & Stillwater, to another type with banjo picking & karaoke, which is better to miss all together. The food is ok, the pizza is fantastic, stone baked. I wish they could revamp the interior... More

The aren't a lot of options when it comes to eating in the Three Rivers area and don't expect any fancy places. This place was packed with cars every night when we passed so we stopped in early on our last night in the area. It has the feel of a older bar that expanded into a restaurant when you... More
