“Great pizza!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Great food and service along with a nice view of the river. Tried to go to the park but because of the government shutdown it was closed. The pizza was excellent!

“Great spot to relax.”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

After a hard day driving into and out of the park, this is a great place to relax with a few ice cold beers. When we walked in the reception we got was very good and within a few minutes we were chatting away with the locals. Inside is A/C and it is quite efficient. The deck /terrace looking out over the river was great. Food is "pub grub" style and good. Pizza $10, bbq burgers $10, Beer was $3.75/bottle and wine was $7/glass. The waitress did a fantastic job handling all of the tables - tshe did talk a lot too!

“Perfect place after long day in the park”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We ate dinner here after spending all day in the park. Down home friendly place. When you walk in it does look like a bar but don't let that run you off. Head for the patio. You can see and listen to the river while you unwind after a long day. We shared an order of buffalo wings which were very good. My hamburger was great. My husband had a huge salad that was very good and a beer. He rarely drinks beer out but the atmosphere was so relaxed and inviting he decided to go for it.

Price average for this area and food was freshly cooked. We would definitely return to eat here. Plan on spending some time just soaking in the beautiful scenery and relaxing. You will be glad you did.

“Quite good - let down by the service”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

The River View Restaurant is, not surprisingly, next to the river and the terrace provides a very pleasant seating area. Inside looks more like a bar than a restaurant, but it's OK.

We were shown to our table by a young lad who took our drinks order, but then we had to wait a long time to order food. It appeared that there was only one person who was allowed to take food orders and that wasn't the guy that seated us. When he did eventually get to us, he was a little flustered although I didn't think it was that busy. Anyway, the wait wasn't a big problem because they had a great band playing that night and we weren't in a hurry.

Food was pretty good - standard fare for this type of place: burgers, fries, salads, ribs, etc.

Overall, not bad and I would have rated it higher if we hadn't had to wait so long to order.
