Authentic restaurant in the mountains

The feeling in the restaurant was good. Not cozy, not nice, actually quite poorly decorated place, but there was something. Basic burgers, nothing special. Good service. But the feeling and atmosphere is very authentic.

We have visited this restaurant several times and they have never let us down. They have a wide range menu that goes from soup and salad to steak and lobster it is a fantastic restaurant that is nestled right next to a babbling brook and if you're adventurous you can even have a secluded romantic dinner on the rocks ,...

We visited the outdoor area twice during our visit to Three Rivers. The staff was very friendly as were the locals that we chatted with over cocktails. Sampling a local brew and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature was a very pleasant way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Pool table, family friendly. Most note worthy is that the outside patio that is along the river. Nice view from several tables inside as well, we sat in one by the glass wall, beautiful. The fries were good. The rest of the food was alright.

The burgers were burned and dry. Found a dead fly in one of our water glasses, floating on top. Carl's Jr's burgers taste much better, are with better quality and more ingredients, and cost less.

Fabulous homemade burgers and meatball soup. The atmosphere is typical country bar with a pool table and lots of TVs but the food is hearty and the service attentive.

We dined here on advise from our hotel, and we were quite happy. My wife was quite impressed with her meal of cod with sweet potato fries and I had the baby back ribs which were also quite good but I have had better.

I had dinner at this restaurant. My server was very kind, friendly. I had my table outside on the terrace with the amazing river view. Food was tasty, the fries was perfect, golden brown. I had beer, that was perfect as well. And when I parked my car before getting in, there was a black bear wondering around right across... More

We stopped after spending the day in Sequoia Park. It was fairly crowded, but we got a table next to the river with a great view. The food was good and the service was good considering how busy it was, There was only one waitress for all the tables.
