We dropped in here with our 2 kids after a long day in Sequoia National Park, although it was busy we found a table and were served quickly. The kid's food was fine, chicken poppers and fries but the burgers were really good. Great value for money and friendly service. Always nice to have your kids complimented for good manners.

not a great place but food was OK. Fried chiken was dry, hamburger over cooked and pizza was undercooked. Best thing was fried cheese.

We happened upon this place by chance when visiting to go to the park. We actually drove by it on our way to a different restaurant and noticed it was packed. The place we intended to go to was empty...which we took as a sign to turn around and head back to the River View. It was the right decision!... More

After hiking all day, this was the closest reasonably priced restaurant. While it appeared to be a local place, we found a seat right away. However, we waited quite a while for our food. When it arrived the sandwiches were cold and the fries were cold and overdone.

Sits literally on top of the river. Genuinely friendly staff that know how to make killer Bloody Mary's. Their crazy burgers are off the chart. Look forward to coming back

We dropped in for dinner on a Sunday afternoon and the place was packed and a great atmosphere. Ice cold drafts and a large selection of meals for all. We had the crispy chicken baskets, a generous portion of perfect cooked chicken.

Stopped here for lunch after a few days in the park. Friendly unpretentious service, great variety on the menu. We stopped in winter and the river was pumping alongside the deck. Had delicious soup and sweet potato fries were yum. Would love to come back and have a beer on the decking in summer.

My husband's friends took him to this restaurant a few weeks ago and he LOVED it. So for an early Valentine's Day, we took a 2 1/2 hour motorcycle ride to have lunch. While the view of the river was fantastic (it was especially high and fast), I have to hope that they were just having an off day, because... More
