“OK food, good beer, great site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Although close to the tourist strip of downtown Wisconsin Dells, this restaurant seems a world apart. It's located above the river and the sprawling building has a lot of places to sit, both inside and outside. Often very busy, but you usually can find a place at the bar. Food is decent, but nothing special. Good drinks. Can handle a large crowd.

“Lowered Expectations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

With not being able to wait for a table at the River's Walk Pub, we decided to try out the River's Edge Pub. I mistakenly took the name to mean that it would also be near the River. That was my error. While the fish tanks and atmosphere was ok, the food was very disappointing. Mozzarella logs are cheap mozzarella sticks that were cold and seemed as if they had just been taken out of a freezer and popped in a microwave. They were not fried, they were cold as soon as they hit the table. While portion of nachos was decent, the quality was on par with the mozzarella sticks. Sorry River's Edge, we will not be returning.

“Fish Fry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The Rivers Edge has the best variety for Fish Fry in the area, and if you are staying there, or nearby you can come back after dinner for beer or cocktails. On top of that if your a fisherman/woman you can Lake fish, or river fish, or both. Best Food and amenities in the area.

“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had a group of 20 people eat here after tubing. The atmosphere is awesome and the food and choices were equally amazing. Would definitely recommend and would go there again!

When coming to the Dells we always stop at "The Rivers Edge Pub & Grub". The food is always great, the help friendly and atmosphere is comforting. You wont go wrong!
