“Lovely spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

We had a great meal while visiting family over Thanksgiving weekend. Everyone loved their food - from a tuna melt which was delicious to a chicken wrap with mozzarella and Sun dried tomatoes which was generous enough in size to provide leftovers to take home. Sweet potato fries as a side option were a big hit. The decor is comfortable and casual and the staff and owners so friendly. I wish we lived closer, I could see us going there on a regular basis.

“Terrible service!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014

We stopped here with friends on Thanksgiving weekend. It wasn't very crowded and we were seated right away. We sat there and watched other people come in, be seated and their tables were waited on immediately. No one ever came near us. After 20 minutes we got up and left. One of the waitresses actually said, "Have a nice day", as we were leaving! No one even noticed that we hadn't been served! We will never go back.

“Great local spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2014 via mobile

River View is one of those places that you know is there, you've heard is good but you just haven't made it. Well, you should because the food is really good and the staff is fantastic. Finally made it over for lunch and had a hard time choosing because everything sounded good. I'd heard about the quinoa salad so went for it and was not disappointed. Great mix of greens, fruits and grains topped with a wonderful dressing. I had the avocado rather than the chicken or shrimp and it was delish. I was not hungry for anything else when was done! My one and only gripe would be the fly that was really interested in our food (for good reason, but still).

“View is nice. Don't drink the water.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2014

Has nice sandwich platters w/grilled vegetable. Food was good as were the sides. View of the river, mill and dam very nice. Just don't drink the water, it tasted awful and the wait staff was aware. We went and purchased bottled water next door. Leadership apparently inattentive to things staff is aware of.

“A picturesque view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We enjoyed the quinoa salad and the Mediterranean salad. It was reasonably priced and portions too big to finish. Service was attentive. Situated right along the river. Dine inside or out. Wraps, burgers and salads. I also saw that they offer breakfast as well.
