“Nowhere else like it!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

When I'm in Golden, "the Riv" is one of my first stops. Gauranteed to be a good time with cold beers, their signature drink the Shaft and meeting up with friends old and new. It's all there. Long time staff mean you will be well taken care of from behind the bar.
No dress code, no pretentiousness. A true locals favorite.

“The Riverhouse: the place to be in Golden!!!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

If you've managed to find your way up to this little gem of a mountain town called Golden, than you owe it to yourself to get on over to the Riverhouse. Delicious home-cooked meals, a wide range of fantastic cocktails, and super-friendly, easy-going staff, rockin' good tunes and authentic mountain vibes day and night, all at a more than reasonable price; makes this little tavern the place to be for anyone who just wants to have a good time. And lets not forget the toasty open fire pit blazing on the best patio in town... perfect to cozy up to after a long day on the hill. There's just no place quite like the Riverhouse. Highly Recommended *****

“Best spot in Golden by far!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The Riverhouse Tavern is the best spot to go in Golden! Year round this is always the only place to be! Best patio, best service, best music,best burgers in town, good vibes and local awesome owners! Do not leave this place without having their signature "shaft" shot! I wish there was a Riverhouse Tavern in San Diego! I can't wait to go back :)
