We were very fortunate to discover this restaurant. We came in through the bar and sat in their outdoor area next to the fire. Our waitress was very helpful and congenial. I enjoyed my "Traditional Gyro". All of the ingredients were fresh and the gyro...More

I'm so glad the gyro, service, and atmosphere were just what you had in mind! I'm glad you found us, too, and I sure hope you'll make your way back to see us someday! Mahalo, Zev, Manager

Salmon dinner was very good as was the pulled pork sandwich. The waitress said they smoke their own pork for the pulled pork, so it was the reason to try it. Cocktail service was very efficient & served by our waitress from a separate outside...More

Hey there! The waitress you spoke with is absolutely right -- we smoke our own pork for the pulled pork so that every dish is filled with delicious flavor. You picked out an awesome spot to enjoy your meal out by the river, and I...More

We had a great seat at the open window along the river which was great. It was noisy inside, but that was overlooked because of our table location. The food was really good. I had one of the burritos which was huge. I would go...More

We can recommend the Rivers Edge for a delicious breakfast. The "breakfast sandwich," was excellent, as was the biscuits and gravy. It's a relaxing place with lots of outdoor eating, on sofas if desired, but if you're in a hurry, you should probably try another...More

We understand the value of starting the day off right, and it's our goal to give you the breakfast that'll accelerate your morning. When paired with an outdoor view that we're so grateful to share, there's really nothing better. I do hate that the service...More

Way overpriced food that failed to inspire anything from our party. LOVED the music and setting alongside the river! But a plate of forgettable fries for an appetizer was priced 5x what it was worth. The burger I had was Denny's quality, not the fourteen...More

Don, while I love that you enjoyed the view as well as a few brews, it's a shame that you didn't agree with our pricing. We pride ourselves on our food, and we price every dish according to the ingredients we use and the care...More

We spent a few hours with friends having lunch at this restaurant, seated outside high along the Arkansas river watching the brave people rafting, kayaking and tubing down the stream. Food was good, friendly service. Average (for US) pricing.... which means a bit expensive for...More

Atmosphere is outstanding. Open air seating, and dogs are welcome everywhere. Watch the river folks having fun. Roasted Brussels sprouts are fabulous. Good selection of craft brews. RV parking is dicey. We parked on a side street on a Sunday. Best suggestion otherwise is to...More

When we saw the spectacular location on the Arkansas, we weren't expecting much from the food, but we were delightfully wrong. The food was delicious and expertly prepared. The blackened trout was a red trout, not Rocky Mountain, but was perfectly prepared with a citrus...More

Good selection of craft beer and the food is quite tasty. Great view of the river. Fun to watch the people tubing and rafting down the Arkansas River while you dine.
