Ruined my Valentines Day

We had a reservation for 7 pm on valentines day. We were planning on having a nice dinner then dancing the night away. That DID NOT HAPPEN! They were not very busy we got seated right away. We waited 30 minutes for them to take our drink order and another 20 to get them. We waited another 30... read more

Visited Three Rivers on way into Sequoia National Park. Recommend visiting before or after going to the park. It's only 26 miles from the main part of the park, but takes just over an hour to get there - winding roads with slow speeds. Great food - had the loaded grill cheese sandwich and hamburger with lots of trimmings. Tuesday... More

This is a local bar, with bar quality food. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. It does the trick and isn't too expensive.

If you want a no frills experience of a local bar, with average beer bad wine, and genetically modified fast food-style burger and chips, this is your place. All worth it for the view down to river, so go out on the terrace, but be prepared for the 'skeeters.

We popped in here in our way back to Exeter after hiking in Sequoia National Park. The staff who served us (Taylor and her Mom) were so friendly and entertaining, they had us in stitches. We LOVED our food (We had the 'Three Rivers' Burgers) and a lovely scenic view of the river running behind the establishment as we ate.... More

Located right on the river, this restaurant offers the quaint, local atmosphere. The interior is nothing to take pictures of, but the food was good. They have a deck that overlooks the river in the back which would have been perfect if we didn't get there until after dark.

We stopped here after visiting Sequoia National Park. There was outside seating overlooking a small river. Very laid back atmosphere . The service was good and we ordered a pizza which was good also. Just typical bar atmosphere but it was a good dining experience. Very friendly staff.

Came here for dinner after a day in Sequoia after reading some positive reviews. The atmosphere was laid back and the location pretty with the back deck over looking a small river. We ordered pizza, a steak and a burger none of which were very good. The steak and burger were over cooked and the bun and pizza very dry.... More

The place is quite nice, but the outside terrace on the river really shines. I had a T-Bone steak that was perfectly cooked. Soup and sides were good too. Average price, considered the great location.

We were warned ahead by someone that the food was average at best. She was not wrong. Just typical bar food, nice waitress. This seems to be a local watering hole and is a nice spot for drinks.
