Great atmosphere next to the Truckee River. Winter outside and a warm fire inside. Good food, good service, very comfortable.

Sunday and Monday ,happy hour is all night. There are several wine and beer specials along with some half priced appetizers and 25% off other menu and salad items. Choices are varied, like burger with Caesar salad and fries for $11, lobster quesadillas, pork pot stickers, spring roll (which is actually a wrap sandwich and quite large), etc. Service was super friendly and efficient.
There is a fire pit outside on patio. Restaurant faces the Truckee River so the views are lovely.
The main dining room has an awesome fireplace, river views and food to match.

We had dinner here recently, and thought the food was good, and the prices were fair. The staff was nice, even though the waiter forgot our starter.

The food was amazing, and so was the service and atmosphere! It was extremely cold when we were in Tahoe City, but the River Grill did everything to make us feel warm and right at home! We will definitely return the next time we visit!

Being tourist we tend to get fed up of the same diner style food, which feels stoogy and everything fried. We ate there on our first night and really enjoyed it. Food was light, tasty and good quality. The calamari excellent, as even though fried was crisp and tasted really fresh. Hostess and waiter was really nice and service was great. Place is cosy and has a slighty more upmarket feel.
Really happy we found it and thought it good value.
