we eat here when we go up every year and we quite like it. We always get the table by the door so we get the breeze and can hear the river which runs behind this restaurant. We also get the occasional view of a squirrel or chipmunk what we are eating. The food is good they have above-average fair for lava hot springs inn and they always cook my meat the way I enjoy it. You can get a nice drink sit and relax and it is usually a very quiet restaurant

I was very impressed with the meal here. The duck confit appetizer was phenomenal, with a sauce perfectly sweetened. I had the 10 oz. prime rib dinner. The prime rib was beautifully marbled, and included a wonderful au jus dipping sauce. The fries were unlike any I have ever encounter. They were exceedingly long, with the perfect amount of crisp. Gently seasoned, and clearly baked.

My partner had a half-rack of ribs covered in a vinegar infused sauce. She had the baked potato that came with, a decadent garlic herb butter side.

The service was excellent. The waitress was professional, and personable. She had pairing recommendations, and was honest about the wine she would normally recommend but was out of that evening.

If you are looking for fine dining in Lava Hot Springs, this is the place. It rivals the fine dining we have experienced in Salt Lake City, with no drop off for the small town setting.

Me and my husband wanted a nice celebratory meal while in Lava and several locals said the Riverside Inn was "the place" and they were spot on. The turban of salmon/sole was magnificent. The brined pork could've perhaps been served closer to med rare-med but the experience as a whole was terrific!!! Thanks

This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten in a small town/highly seasonal destination. The Inn it is housed in turns 100 this year but the menu reflects the extensive culinary background of operators Alonzo and James, and offers a delightful modern selection.

Wine and drink pairings were an unexpected touch, and unexpected items like duck con fit pasta and Ahi Tuna set this menu apart from everywhere else in town.

Though small and staffed sparsely for the off season, this is an excellent departure from most dining expereinces in town, and I would reccommendd it to anyone looking for a nicer meal while vacationing in the area. The dishes were hearty, very well presented and exceptionally balanced.
