Enjoy it all indoors in Riverside's recently remodeled dining room or on the expansive dining deck. Menus change seasonally, with fresh, locally-sourced, all-natural ingredients. An extensive award-winning wine list, a dozen brews on tap, and full bar offer the perfect complements for a relaxing meal. Riverside's menu is also served in Cebu lounge. Weekday happy hours at Cebu feature a special menu based on many of Riverside's specialties.

My wife didn't see anything on the menu she wanted. In talking with our waitress she would talk to the kitchen and offered grilled cod and fresh vegtables, she was happy. I oredered Short ribs over pasta, great. Service was out standing, the decor along with the river view couldn't be better.

Dear Mike B, Thank you so much for your enthusiasm about Riverside's salmon! It's one of our favorite menu items to create, and there's nothing like enjoying it with views of the Columbia. We hope you'll dine with us again next time you're in the area.

The food and service were impeccable. Excellent local cuisine, options for kids, and great pastas. The Salmon is especially well prepared and presented. Sit on the deck if the weather permits… you won’t be disappointed with the view! The breakfast is top notch, too!

This restaurant is located in the Best Western Hotel but don't let that stop you from visiting. Situated right on the river, the views are incredible and in warmer months you can sit out on the deck. There were lots of locals dining here which is a good sign. Service was great, as were our meals.

I am a local and this restaurant is one of my favorites. I enjoy the views of the river and the Hood River bridge. The waiters are awesome, very friendly and attentive. I usually get their yummy burgers, pastas, soups and salads, and it never disappoints. The place has an upscale feel and the prices are good.

Must definitely eat here when in Hood River :)
