I enjoy going to the River Grill. I very much enjoy the beautiful views and the comfortable atmosphere inside. The menu is not the most exciting, but I do enjoy their soups and salads, steak tacos. I like going there for breakfasts and the great coffee. Sit by the fireplace on a cool day and you will be very cozy.

I do wish that they had room to move the bar farther away from the dining area. Sometimes the bar customers are loud and I don't like having the TVs blaring as I eat. One evening we were eating dinner outside on the patio with our friends. There was a group of rowdy, tipsy people smoking, drinking and cursing outside close by. That soured our dining experience. I didn't say anything to management since I figured if I could hear them so could the staff. They eventually left to our relief. The staff didn't seem to care or notice.

the food is mediocre not to say terrible.no creativity what so ever.

Small golf club restaurant with good food, fairly interesting menu. Service and staff were above average. Nice views and fireplace. We would eat there again.
