Stopped there after a long day of driving. We were promptly greated and seated by Pam. She was friendly and attentive. We had the porterhouse and fried chicken - both were good - the place filled up quickly and Pam never missed a beat. We left a few pounds heavier and happy. Stop by if you are in the area.

The River Rock Burger filled up our big hungry fisherman, excellent place to eat while in Riggins! Great selection of food for all family members.

Place is never too crowded since it's not quite in town. The food is pretty standard for what you see in this neck of the woods. Americana, better than a greasy spoon though.

We had breakfast there, fast and tasty food. We ordered pizza later in the week it was very good as well. We didn't need reservations, there is a large dining area holds lots of folks, The decorations were for the event for the weekend. Menu was revised to suit faster service and a larger than normal crowd.

A nice place to eat and the staff members are great. We have seen them many times over the years even at other restaurants they have worked at. Good food and great black berry cobbler. All the food is good not just this visit.

Spent some time in Riggins last week while steelhead fishing and thought this was the best dinner option in town. Staff is friendly and welcoming. They have a diversified menu and make an excellent pizza. Ended up eating all my dinners there.

This restaurant has been open for many years and we have stopped in Riggins to eat while traveling North. It has only gotten better over the years--the name has changed and the menu may have changed also, but they still serve the homemade blackberry cobbler with ice cream that we remember having there many years ago. Our latest visit was... More

Very reasonably priced lunch special (to-go). Highly recommend it for hikes to the fire lookout, or other outings.
