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.

Patio on river was shaded and relaxing. There was only one cigarette smoker and it was amazing how much that affected the entire area. Food was good, salad fresh, and we had excellent service.

The place looks like a hole in a wall and it is a hole in the wall, lol. Don't let the appearance deceive you. Get a table outside and you get a great view of the river and refreshing air. The only bad thing is that there is an area outside for smokers. The food was great and the prices... More

They have outside seating on a patio above the river. Nice view. Food was good. I ordered a BLT, and it was prepared just as I asked with crispy bacon. The bread was maybe sourdough, and really good. There are pool tables in the bar area. They do not make frozen drinks though, I asked for a frozen mud slide,... More

Nice atmosphere outside with the river, just sit away from the upper bar due to cigarette smoke filtering down to the tables. Good beer selection. The food was good with the usual bar food selection. The staff was nice but forgetful about us - our waiter forgot about us and we asked a waitress for assistance and instead she just... More
