“RUN!!!!!!!! Save your time and money and go only for a beer on their patio!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

The location is superb, but that is all that River's Edge has to offer.

We stopped for breakfast on our last day in Salida and it was the biggest mistake. It took forever to get our coffee, for a waitress to stop by and take our order, and for our food to arrive. The food at the next table looked delightful. Our food, however, arrived COLD and took over 45-minutes - eggs were not cooked in the eggs benedict (luckily we did not get sick!), pork green chili had no pork! and eggs were not even scrambled (whites and yoke were not even mixed), and our waitress was too busy gabbing with the locals to check on us for 20-minutes. Even after showing her that 2 out of 3 items were inedible, she only replied "thanks for letting us know" and proceeded to give us the $40 bill. Our daughter said the French toast was great with the HALF CUP of butter poured on top - Gross! We wanted to love this place, but I have absolutely no positive comments except to recommend to others that they enjoy the patio while drinking a beer and AVOID eating anything!

Enjoy Salida - I can highly recommend Amica's as the restaurant not to miss!

“Inconsistent food, nice staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We visited the Rivers Edge on Friday May 23rd for dinner and drinks with friends and my wife and I split the chicken salad, It was really good as was the happy hour Elevation beer. Server was a very nice gal who made sure we were happy.
On Friday May 30th we visited again and being a creature of habit I ordered the chicken salad again but it was very disappointing. They washed the lettuce and that is good but they never dried and and the entire thing was soggy and a lot less chicken that the last time. Server was polite but never came back to ask about the salad which I would have gladly reviewed.
The Elevation beer was still wonderful and we will go their again but order something else.

“Riverside Dining in Salida”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Located just feet from the exciting Arkansas River this place is perfect for alfresco dining. Especially for a late breakfast or lunch. A nice place to enjoy this beautiful mountain town.

“Perfect Riverside lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This patio, right on the edge of the river is the perfect place for an alfresco lunch! I loved getting to sit in the sun, munch on my delicious gyro, and listen to the river!

“The food is good, to bad the waitstaff blew the whole meal!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

We walked in, and waited for 10 minutes before anyone noticed we were standing there, they weren't busy, just busy laughing and giggling about the previous nights partying. It only went down from there, 15 minutes to get a cup of coffee, 10 more to get creamer, another 5 to get the sugar packets filled. The breakfast gravy was like dirty milk, not even close to gravy, the breakfast burrito was dry, scrambled eggs were half cooked, Oh - and that half hour cup of coffee had at least two tablespoons of coffee grounds in it!!
The only thing nice was the location, and, the BACON was fabulous!!
