Basic food offering, minimal service, lacks atmosphere, cash only, is bottom of my list for places to eat in Thredbo. OK for drinks after day skiing with live music most days.

We had two free breakfasts and one free dinner here. Rarely this happens, but we chose to eat our second nights dinner here also because the food was surprisingly tasty! Would return.

The live music and the outdoor beer garden are great, the food and the inside dining area very ordinary! Had a schnitzel which was one of the heart shape frozen numbers that look and taste like cardboard! Nothing a few $12 pints of beer didn't sort out but if they nailed the food here it would be all time!

Next to Friday Flat,a low key friendly place perfect for a good value ski package in one of the best ski resort in Australia. Great breakfast for a long day on the slope, but average dinner.

even by mountain standards this is pretty awful. despite the constant bad reviews it just doesn't do anything to improve. I guess it is a money making decision - they get the people in no matter how bad it is because the location is so perfect

We came to the river inn for drinks and dinner. It was absolutely awesome and it would be hard to beat the atmosphere of this place. The food was great but the decor, like most of Thredbo establishments was a bit dated and euro ( stuffed stag heads ? Seriously ? ). The band they had playing made the night... More

We stayed at the river inn twice over the last ski season and ate here multiple times. The food was very ordinary, although there was some fresh food and 3 courses for the evening meal. For people who want to eat up big, without worrying about quality or health. this may be great (this is not us).

Honestly. The food was edible and the beer was drinkable. But despite the staff being polite, it completely falls down as a dining experience.

Terrible, school camp slop! Over priced slop cooked by children! It's a shame because the location and convenience to Friday flats is awesome.

Caesar salads good and staff friendly. Bit pricey but typical of Alpine Village. Plenty of room to sit down and the bar is conveniently located. Can sit outside too with music.
