“Fantastic pizza, fresh salad and good wine and beer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

River view was recommended to us and I'm so glad that it was as we would have driven by otherwise.
Although as first look it is a bar, it is a good bar with a wide range of drinks including beer from local microbreweries and a reasonable choice of wines. The restaurant is part inside and part outside overlooking one of the rivers of Three Rivers, facilities are basic but clean and the food is great - fresh salad buffet and the best pizza base (with toppings) that I have ever had!!
Service is great and all the staff we met were lovely.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Loved relaxing on the back deck, having a cold beer, and delicious food after a long day in Sequoia Nat'l Park.

“Service was terrible. Food wasn't very good.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

The place has a nice view of the river. However, it took 30 minutes from the time we sat down until our order was taken. The food took a similar length of time to arrive (which would not have been a big deal if our order was taken promptly). The restaurant was not very busy, yet the table next to us was having the same issue. A very disappointing experience.

“More like a Biker Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

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 do have a great view of the river and a great local IPA.

“Nice location, mediocre food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

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 burger, oh man, for that price ($16) I was expecting home made gourmet patties. I am 99% sure that they were out of a packet possibly bought in a supermarket. It just didn't taste fresh and wasn't enjoyable.
Chips (fries) were soggy, greasy and floppy.
The lady who served us was very pleasant but we didn't want to kick up a fuss so we didn't say anything. They need to organise training for the kitchen staff ASAP.
