We have eaten at Riverside Restaurant for lunch several times while driving from Tri-Cities, WA to Portland and/or Oregon Coast. We always order a cup of delicious clam chowder with the various lunch fare experienced. A very relaxing atmosphere is enjoyed.

We ate here while staying at the hotel. The service was outstanding every time. We had breakfast twice, lunch and dinner once. Very tasty food, a bit pricey but well worth it. My husbands steak was a bit over cooked but they remedied it quickly. The view of the river was very nice while dining.

After eating one of the best clam chowders we have ever had we didn't wander too far afield to find food. We were very impressed by this restaurant located inside our hotel. The discount dinner with hotel room for sure was a draw, but the food was excellent. Lots of gluten free options with excellent service. I can't decide if... More

Ate here while at the hotel. Lots of great pasta to pick from (among other things) and views like you can't believe. Looks like when the weather gets nice the outside deck would be awesome.

Our visit was two fold, to celebrate our anniversary and to take advantage of their special offering which was a 2 for 1 pasta. Arrived around 6pm, they were running an artificial wait (more customers than servers could properly handle at the time), was ok with that. We did get a great table, however the service was poor for what... More

Riverside is a very popular place to dine in Hood River. It is located in close proximity to the historic Hood River Bridge. The views from your dining table will be great no matter the season. I believe outdoor seating is available dependent upon the weather. I had seafood both times I ate there. It was delicious. No complaints. The... More

We stopped here on our journey from Portland to Seattle and discovered a great place to have lunch. The view across the river is spectacular, the service was great and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed our lunch and most certainly would recommend it as a place to stop if you were passing this way!!

This place never disappoints. Did a road trip with my friend, from Hillsboro to HR specifically to eat here. I typically avoid greasy, heavy and unhealthy food. We had lunch: Crab & shrimp baguette sandwich with a salad. The baguette is about 10". I DON'T recommend sharing it unless you're not that hungry. That's how good & healthy it tastes.... More
