So glad to find this Budd Bay Cafe sister restaurant for Easter brunch. We needed a meet up between Seattle and Portland and they proved be a good choice. A very straight forward breakfast and brunch item buffet. Bottomless mimosas or Bloody Mary drink option @ $5 was a nice touch; used to paying way more for one champagne flute... More

We were staying at a local LaQuinta and asked at the desk where we could have an inexpensive meal with good food. She suggested Rivers Edge. We were there at an off time, but the service was very good, and the food fresh and well prepared. We both had shrimp fettuccine which was cooked all dente.Plenty of shrimp, mushrooms and... More

Food is good and service is prompt and courteous even with large groups. Room dividers are available to provide privacy for group meetings.

My husband and I eat lunch here every couple of months. We decided to return today, and it wasn't a very positive experience. First of all, the sign in the lobby says to seat yourself in the dining room. We entered the dining room and sat at our favorite table. We were literally the ONLY people in the room, so... More

This review is for the bar only. A great quite place when happy hour starts at 3pm. Great to meet friend for a beer and lookout at the golf course. A great attentive and friendly staff.

The first time we came here we couldn't get waited on no matter how much we tried. Now we love the place! The service is spot on and the food is good!! They are very amenable to any special requests as well. We go every Sunday now. Worth a try!!

A spur of the moment visit. I have business lunches there from time to time, and the food has always been good but the service spotty. Tonight the food was very good, the service solid. But there were only a couple other people in the dining room with us, although the bar next door was pretty busy. The 1/2 chicken... More

I eat here on occasion but haven't been for a few months. They have a new menu. I ordered the Tuesday special, three tacos and requested corn tortillas. It arrived as two tacos on flour tortillas. I reminded the waitress I'd ordered corn tortillas and she apologized and took them. My plate was returned as three tacos on corn tortillas.... More

My friends and I go somewhere for breakfast every Sunday. Dinner last Friday was delightful with Daniel as our waiter! The food was good, the prices reasonable, and Daniel made it a great experience. We went back on Sunday for Breakfast and we tried everything to get some service. I was there 15 minutes before finally going and asking for... More

I have eaten here many times. Sometimes the food is great other times it is not. The people who work here are nice but sometimes the service is slow. I like the restaurant but find that it is uneven. The breakfasts are good.
