Good ol country cooking. Pot roast and mashed was perfect small town style that I go out of town just to have. Service was good and prices nice.

This place serves good food, however, the restaurant is rather noisy. There are three rooms...the first one is near the casino and one hears all the noise from that. The back two rooms have terrible acoustics...the noise from people talking is amplified quite a bit (along with music playing in the background). The low ceilings add to the problem and to some people, might seem a little bit claustophobic.

My suggestion, if noise bothers you, is to dine at an time when the restaurant is rather empty and sit in the back room. Then you can enjoy the food without all the noise...we had breakfast...their hashbrowns are crispy and tasty, the side of ham is gigantic (but a little dry), and the pancakes were quite good.

We love to go here for breakfast. The ham steak is always very good, and a bargain. It's served with hash browns, toast, and eggs of choice. Also, the coffee here is the best in town. No complaints!

For less than $5 you can get a huge ham steak breakfast. I suggest splitting this monstrosity with another person, or putting half in a take out box. It's a huge amount of food. The coffee here is great, and the staff is really nice and friendly. For a quick, easy, filling, and consistent meal, River Cafe always delivers.
