We were in town for business and I had never been there before. Our waitress Leticia was very good to us, plus gave us a run down of the town and the area, as we were there after the lunch crowd and she had a few extra minutes to talk.

The food was really good, better than described on the menu. The waitress that served us was pleasant but a bit abrupt and made it clear that she was very tired. We asked if one of the meals that we ordered was gluten-free and were assured that it was, however we suspect that the sauce on it was not gluten-free because the person who ordered it became sick later that evening. The portions were generous.

stopped for breakfast @ 10:00 a.m. place was full. were seated in 15 minutes and then waited for 30 more. went & asked & they had forgotten where we were seated. went to till to get ketchup, jam, no refill of coffee was offered & went up to ask for the check.
food good. Forget about service though!
poor waitress talking with other girls. we had to get up and get everything & when I asked for the check, there were 9 people left in the restaurant and she was going to "just bring it" One hour & 45 minutes from in the door to out the door.
The last time we were there in may, it was great ???

This restaurant has good food, thought the dinner menu was sort of limited. Waiter was nice and did a good job. Nice view of the Columbia River. Serving sizes are a bit small for what you pay. This town is very small so your kind of stuck eating here if you want to eat out at a nice place.

Good Day! We appreciate you stopping at Rivers Restaurant, thank you for the feedback. Normally, we are told our portions are too large so we have reduced them. When the restaurant opened the owner ran a large cattle ranch by the canadian border. His meat was picked up and labeled RR (agri beef). The quality is top of the line. We are proud to serve RR meat. This being said, we serve lunch and dinner until closing. We offer hamburgers, steaks, fish, prawns, pork chops, salads, prime rib, turkey dinner, and numerous sandwiches. I am sorry you felt limited by the choices. Next time you visit, please share what you would like to see that we are no offering. We are very open to changes and feedback.

Have an excellent day.
