Description: Hood River's only waterfront restaurant is known for some of the best food in the Gorge, plus amazing Columbia River views from just about every table. 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.

“One great meal, luck, four? Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We eight had eaten a big lunch and decided to share 4 entrees and 2 appetizers for dinner. We agreed that the food Primo prepared was PRIMO. A couple of us actually said, "best restaurant meal ever." Considering our older age average, that is a lot of meals. Scallops were amazing. . And mushrooms in sauces surrounding steak and fish specials. Halibut, especially was tops. Raves about mashed potatoes. And we thought this meal might be mediocre. Views at dinner were exceptional. Charlie did a wonderful job serving, as did Maria for breakfast. And. As I write this review after breakfast I look up and see the Columbia River fading into the morning light from our table.

“Excellent service with a fantastic view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We visited for lunch with the family and had a great time. The atmosphere is average as it is an older Restaurant that is part of a hotel but everything else is top notch. The restaurant sits right on the river so the views are awesome. On a nice day sit outside. There are heaters on the deck so even if it is a little cool you will be comfortable. The food was very good. Five of us all ordered different things and we were all very happy, very generous proportions. Service was very good as well and that is one of the most important things to us when dining. Nice beer and wine selections from the local brewery's and vineyards put the icing on the cake. Great location for families with children.

Ok I have a 6 year old that ordered a cheese pizza from the kids menu. She loved it it was huge, enough to take to the room and have the next day.

“Great view, great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has an excellent view. We went on a rainy day, but we could still see the beautiful river from our table. They had good sized portions and the food was delicious! The only down side was that the restrooms were located far from the dining area.

“Beautiful view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Wonderful service from Tammy at dinner, food not good (April 14, 2014). Pork rib dish VERY bland, served with lumpy polenta. Tammy happily offered to exchange it. I chose the scallop appetizer, which had lovely flavor with nice caramelization on just one side of the scallop--lazy. My Mom and sister had fish & chips that were soggy. What a shame.
Breakfast was delicious! Again, wonderful customer service, this time from Randa.
