We stopped in for the happy hour specials and we were not disappointed. First off, the wait staff was phenomenal. Our server was extremely helpful and the bartender made well drinks as he said, "The way I like them," which was a solid, full pour cocktail. The BBQ pork for the sliders were made on site and were very good.... More

Chanced upon this gem and what a treat!! Very cool atmosphere. Stopped in first night and had a few drinks. We were impressed by our very knowledgeable bartender/owner. We had a not so good experience earlier in the evening with pizza so he recommended a place to try the next day for pizza the next day. I said we would... More

This appeared to be the happening place in Hood River, or at least it was on Election Night! Great live music, an amazing bartender, a fun atmosphere and food that lived up to our expectations (pub fare). We liked it a lot and we will be back!

All soups are prepared fresh and special. Other items on the menu are good, but the soup can be outstanding. This place is often open late, and is a good place to stop off for a drink. The bar staff is friendly and the service is great.

This used to be a seedy saloon-type. It has been remodeled and looks and smells great. My only complaint is the lack of seating and the live bands overwhelm the small space so you cannnot have a conversation anywhere in the club. Too loud.

I have stopped into this restaurant a few times while on road trips and somehow I am surprised by how great it is every time. I wish it was close to home because it would be a regular stop. The atmosphere is very comfortable and the service has been friendly every time. The food is so good and it is... More

The River City Saloon is the Gorge's premier music venue. Delicious food from scratch, handmade cocktails, and micro brews on tap. The menu includes mouthwatering Mountain Shadow burgers, scratch made soups, salads, sandwiches and steaks with an emphasis on locally-sourced, seasonal, organic ingredients (farm to table). It's the ideal location to catch the big game on one of the Saloons large flat screen televisions, play darts, Foosball or shoot pool.
