Great location right on the river.. Service was attentive and many choices on the menu. Ordered the taco salad and it was yummy!

The service and the bloody Mary's were great! The food was just good though. We got steak quesadillas, calamari and shrimp skewers and it was all just 'ok'. Great view of the river though while you grab a bite!

Perfect for outdoor dining! For us, the raucous bar scene inside with high top tables ONLY available was not right, so we sat outside, overlooking the Arkansas river and chatted as kayakers floated by. Yummy food, wonderful service! Charming location and your choice of a...More

We stopped in for lunch on a drive through Salida. The location is excellent, right on the Arkansas River in downtown Salida. The food and service were both excellent.

The location is right alongside the Arkansas River and from their deck you can watch the kayakers and river pole dancers (long board surf riders, only a river!). The food is solidly good. Our group of 5 were very happy with their orders. I ordered...More

Nothing fancy. Not anything great. I had a burger and it was average bar food. The service was good and the view was better.
