Fabulous location overlooking the Kaweah River. Ate here twice while visiting Sequoia Natl Park. Great food (dinner) - rib eye steak, shrimp and seafood. Good sides - salad, fresh veggies, rice pilaf. Service was great both times; very friendly staff.

One of the best breakfasts I’ve had - Three Rivers Big Breakfast - eggs, bacon and side of pancakes! Perfect view of the river and friendly and fast customer service. Highly recommend stopping here on the way to Sequoia National Park.

We had a great table overlooking the river. The food and service were good. It was a little old school but for the area it was great.

I don't mind paying a decent amount for a good meal while on vacation, but the food here was really not very good. Baked potato had clearly been baked long, long ago. Seafood was slathered in way too much sauce. In general, the food was...More
