“Great Lunch!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We had a great lunch here after out boat tour. The staff was GREAT...they gave us all kinds of information about the area.
They even had some cool items for sale. You can't beat the view.

“We liked this place!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We had a very good meal here, save for the clam chowder, which as only mediocre. The hamburgers were quite tasty and the basket french fries were excellent, we ordered another round of these! My husband had the indian fry bread taco thing and he wanted to order another one, but didn't-because he was too full. The waitress was attentive. The view was awesome, watching the waves break over the rocks and watching the fishermen in their vessels. We would definitely eat here again.

“Not a hotbed”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

While we knew the Forks area was not a hotbed of fine dining, we wanted to find someplace that had an attractive interior, and on that score the River's Edge was the best we could find. High ceilings and on the water. Unfortunately the food can best be described as bland. My crab cakes had no flavor and even less crab, yet the prices were not particularly reasonable. My husband's chowder was really mediocre. The staff there was quite nice. If you are staring for the night in this immediate area, buy take-out elsewhere and bring with you.

“This place needs some serious help...”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I had read the reviews here before we went, so our expectations were very low... however, we were still dissapointed.

We went in on a weekend night, arrived at 6:58pm and were told they were closing, but could order something to go. Really? the sun had JUST set, and the view out the windows was great (minus the smears on the glass).. and we wanted to have a little dinner and enjoy it. about 3/4 of the tables were filled.

As we tried to order, the first two options they were out of... then the 3rd option "would take too long to make" (it was the seafood pasta or something). They told us it'd be ready in about 10 min... well, 25 minutes later, we got our food... took it home. well, they forgot the salad that was supposed to come with it, and the little potatoes looked sad all by themselves. I got a little cup with quite a few small scallops in it, but it wasn't anything special. The fried fish was actually pretty decent, as was the salmon, but the portions were pretty small for the $25 price tag.

The place has alot of potential... great views, but...

1. block off the kitchen.. people are not here to look at the kitchen.
2. clean up.. the big wooden beams were nice, but they had old pain stains all over them.
3. the big picture windows looking out at the harbor were filthy.
4. hire more help.. the one girl that was running around was hostess was the waiter, server...bus girl.. and had a bad attitude and was not friendly (which I probably wouldn't either if I had to do all that).. this little native american town is depressed, (like most others), and surely there are some people that could use a job.
5. stay open until it's at least dark!
6. work on the menu/presentation/food. I also didn't see any beer/wine on the menu... maybe there was a separate card for that...?

“La push restaurant”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I had the soup of the day and fry bread. Wonderful, our waitress Ashley, was working very hard-her second day. They need to hire more people and clean the place a bit more.
