“Wonderful meal and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious, beautifully served and service were superb. My husband and I were fortunate it was an evening when we could sit on the deck under the warming lamps next to the river. Beautiful view at sunset on the river and tranquil location watching the ducks swim by.

“Delightful Dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Upon arriving in Tahoe City, we unpacked and visited downtown. Since it was dinner hour, we stopped at the River Grill. What a pleasant surprise. The weather was nice so we opted to eat on the deck. The food we ordered was very good and the waiters were attentive. The night we were there, they had a fellow playing guitar and singing solo a number of tunes. It was extremely enjoyable and made for a wonderful evening of good food and excellent entertainment. We definitely would return to this restaurant.

“Always great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is a place that we always enjoy going to ... it is right on the Truckee River, has gas space heaters on the deck and live music (at least last night night).

“Great Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This restaurant is located right off of hwy 89 and tucked in a little alley so can be missed as we did for quite sometime. It is frequented by locals and tourists and the dining experience was great, but Happy Hour is really good too. Their outdoor seating has fire pits and heaters so eating outside is a must as you sit along side the Truckee River.

“Wonderful place, especially for a group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Our Homeowner's Association holds our annual board dinner at this restaurant. They have a lovely back room that is private, right off the river. The deck sits alongside the river and almost makes a private deck for the group. Service has been great and the food is excellent. We haven't eaten there by ourselves yet, but plan on doing so soon. Planning a dinner out for a group consider this place!
