“Unbelievable food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

Driving into town looking for a place to eat other than fast food we spotted this place. Looked like a typical diner by a motel but would take a look anyway. Walked in and it definitely wasn't typical.
They gave us a window seat and it overlooked the Green River which was terrific.
I had their fish sandwich and living on the California coast, I really like and know fish. It was superb; not heavily battered or overcooked, just great.
She had the grilled basil bacon sandwich and the salad bar. She loved the choices. It was truly a wonderful surprise dropping in to eat there. Will gladly return next time through.

“BEST food on our travels across the West!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

The service was excellent. The view was beautiful. But, mostly...THE FOOD WAS SOOOO GOOD! We had been in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and San Francisco on this trip, and this food was--hands down--the VERY BEST we had on our trip! I highly recommend the huevos rancheros with red and green, served with black beans and cilantro lime rice. YUM!

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Not a lot of choices around here and this was suggested by the hotel we were staying. Drove over and found the place nice, not the best up to date place but, good menu, and one wall is glass that looks onto the Green River, which was more like the brown river after they rain they have been having, We ordered the steak, the waitress was so nice, she made a mistake on mine and brought out my wife's and said mine would be out shortly, but brought out my veggies while I waited, when she brought out my steak, I swear it was a lot bigger, that my wifes and they both were cooked just the way we asked for. The food was very good, Lots of local decorations around in the place. Would return. Friendly people...

“Tamarisk Restaurant is a Diner's Delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Located adjacent to the River Terrace Inn, and on the banks of the Green River, the Tamarisk is one of the very best restaurants available in Green River, Utah!

We enjoyed their full Tamarisk salad bar for lunch, and the very convivial and friendly atmosphere of the other diners who were present.

Prompt and attentive wait staff service greeted us and seated us in a booth on the end corner, overlooking the Green River and the yard terrace and pool area of the River Terrace Inn, next door. The friendly waitress seemed to know all the locals! Lots of good joking, humor, conviviality, and hearty laughter .... we also laughed, as we overheard some of their stories!

Meal prices were very fair and the portions looked to be more than adequate, as we viewed and admired the other diners' lunches, on our two trips to the salad bar and a little lite dressing. (Dieting ... oh, well!) We very much enjoyed our luncheon salads and drinking our lemon water with ice ... great variety and all fresh tastes!

Our window seat in a booth at the end corner of the large picture windows allowed us GREAT views of the natural beauty of the flowing Green River below, the fish leaping in the river, and a Great Blue Heron wading in the shallows .... until the heron flew off under the concrete span bridge to the right, next to the outdoor deck below (no dining there).

Handicapped parking was available at the front door. We heartily recommend this place as one of the best, if not THE best, in Green River, Utah!

“One of your best dining options in Green River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

We enjoyed the Mexican items on the menu. Well prepared and decent portions. The Restaurant has an excellent salad bar for those who are more calorie conscious. If you sit along the windows in the main dining room, we'll enjoy a great river view with your meals. We forgot to mention that the prices are reasonable and the staff very helpful. It is a combination that's hard to beat. It may get even better as they were remodeling sections of the dining room in April 2014.
