We ate at this restaurant for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday February 4 and 5. The food and service were absolutely fantastic! For breakfast on Sunday we came with a large group and the service was very prompt and the food excellent. Portions are very generous. We had breakfast there again today and it was a little different. Service was... More

We had breakfast there and it was good, except for the eggs, I asked for scrambled eggs and they were dry and weird looking! Besides that the food was good to start the day. Good price too!

My family went for dinner at this restaurant and met with disappointment. The waitress seemed very new, did not know what a martini was, she then brought a red wine when the order was for a white. The sirloin burger was recommended and was not good, it was very greasy. We were four people each disappointed in some way with... More

Without a doubt the worst service I have ever had. Servers rude and unhelpful. Blamed the kitchen staff for all the delay. Over an hour for breakfast to show up.

Dear Ripthepow. We have checked the bill time on this order and from the time the drinks were punched in to the time the bill was paid was 38 minutes. The server did acknowledge there was a delay at the beginning due to some late joiners at the Terrace Minor Hockey Kids table. having kids myself I can understand that... More

The Lounge is the place to be to socialize with the locals! The food is excellent. The selection is on a smaller scale with a versatile menu. The Aspen Motel is next door to meet your overnight stay!

There weren't many restaurants open Sunday afternoon so we ended up here and were pleasantly surprised by the rustic decor and great view of Hudson Bay Mountain. The Beef Dip sandwich was generous and the meat was tender and moist. However, the Minestrone soup tasted like a dry soup mix combined with yesterday's noodles and was inedible. Nevertheless, we'd probably... More

My partner and I ate lunch at the Riverhouse Resaturant during a recent visit to Smithers on the recommendation of a colleague. I ordered a clubhouse sandwich and beer, and my partner had a hamburger. Service was quick and efficient and both of us enjoyed our meals very much.

Interesting log cabin style building with many historical artifacts of local interest on display. Good lunch, though not special. Friendly staff. Recommended
