This is our 3rd trip RRT. We had another well made dinner. The place has a simple menu and it is good food. I always get a Kobe burger but went to the Ruben. It was very tender really liked it. I love the thin fries also. Great beer selection also. The prices are very good.

The burgers and fries at The River Road Tavern are consistently great! Cooked just the way we like them! The fries are also yummy, although we are not fans of the dipping sauce. The buffalo wings are also tasty! We have tried them regular snd stupid. We liked the regular, as the stupid were a little too spicy for us!... More

This is not going to be a very positive review, the food selected for our lunch was terrible. The reubens were served on soggy bread, with chunks of corned beef which had too much fat. Fries were undercooked. Oh, but at least the pickle was very good. Companion has a Caeser salad with chix which was served in a metal... More

We have gone by this place so many times. This was the time to stop. The Kobe burger was done very well really enjoyed it. The fries I like to add my own salt because you know what they say about salt. I will definitely return here. The outside seating I was very nice.

I have to say this was a great place for food, beer and atmosphere. Largely locals, but I was welcomed. The bartender was excellent. He engaged with every person who came in the bar, knew most everyone who walked through the door and knew enough about them to ask them a specific question, and knew most everyone's beer choice before...
