“Made to feel Welcome in Locals place ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

A good mix of locals and tourists, made to feel very welcome. Perfect for pizza and cold beer after a day in the park! You can sit and the bar and chat away to locals or sit on the deck watching the river pass by.

“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.

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.
